I just got a keyboard with power, wake and sleep buttons. Is there a way to disable these buttons in Windows? Otherwise I'll but a drop of super glue on them to keep them from being pushed accidently.
Thanks,
Len

Usually a 3rd party keyboard or mouse will come with there own software & when installed will give you the ability to choose different functions for the buttons. If no disk is available look on the manufactures website for the drivers.

The better way is to disable those functions from the control panel using "power options" to adjust the settings.

Actually, if you didn't install the specific software for that keyboard those functions wouldn't work from the keyboard buttons anyway.

This is not correct on all keyboards.
Have seen lots & have a Logitech that all the buttons worked but didn't do what I wanted them to do till after installing the software, then you have different options for different buttons.
