Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Big Sleep Works OK, once it is awake. Problem is, it stays asleep when you boot up the computer. If you unplug the USB lead and plug it in again it will wake up and start working, but not otherwise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as expected after getting used to it This keyboard works as expected. However the keyboard layout was different and took some getting used to. An equipment failure (KVM Switch) caused me to have to get a new KVM Switch. Because this new KVM Switch uses USB Connecters I could use the old PS2 keyboard and so I had to get a new USB keyboard

how are you supposed to use the 12 multimedia hotkeys?

Asked by: fzb78g
I am sorry but we are unsure of how to answer this question, they are used by simply pressing them, if they are not working you may not have compatible software installed.
