Autoreply and new keyboard

  The Bard 09:36 18 Aug 2009

Two questions if I may; I wish to set up autoreply for my holidays. If I set OE to check (say) every 24 hours, do I have to alter power settings to turn off hibernate or will OE checking re-start computer?

Secondly, I bought a new Microsoft 3000 media keyboard which has programmed function keys so that 'normal' functions such as f8 safe boot no longer work.

Is there a way to cancel these to operate as a standard keyboard?

I have a programmable keyboard - it has an F button to toggle between programmed and standard function keys.

Have you read the Help section for the keyboard's features and how to Enable/disable them?

The best place to set this up is on your server - many let you do this. Much easier than leaving your system on all the time.
