due to the problems with the keyboard and user playing prank on it.
As an old keyboard we didn't have those problems.

ACPI controls the power saving functions - but its not ACPI that's programming the keyboard - even if you were to replace ACPI, then the same issue would result.

Dear KCTS:
I don't know if is ACPI, but i know there is an option in the BIOS to disable the power off button sleep button on the computer and on the keyboard. I would like everything as if it were an old computer.

thanks for your help.

If someone has done something to the machines, you need to undo what they have done, not cripple the machine even more.

You can do a re-install or repair install and specify the HAL to be used
see http://www.myitforum.com/articles/15/view.asp?id=8997

but I would strogly advise aganst this.
