    slide out keyboard quits working

    every now and then my keyboard quits responding. no light, nothing. a reboot and its fine.

    anyone else have this problem? I jus t noticed it today and its done it twice.

    Was sitting at dairy queen throwing back and forth emails to someone and noticed it happen then. Been staying on 1x and over the air activesync most of the time.

    ya well softresetting takes too long. i suppose its better than a hard reset. but this is the first time its happened in the 3 weeks ive had this thing.

    was just wondering if theres a way to bring life to the keyboard after it does this without a reboot.

    I found an easier fix. When this happens hit the power button and slide the keyboard in. Hit the power button again and slide it back out. This has been my remedy.

    You don't even have to slide the keyboard back in, just do a quick tap on/off of the power and you're good to go. Although it can be easier to reach the power button without the keyboard ejected
