Does anyone have a Logitech Freedom cordless keyboard? I already took the first one back to the store thinking it was defective, and the second one I have does the same thing. It works for a couple of days, and then just quits working. I put brand new batteries in it, and it works again, but then just stops responding a couple of days later again. Anyone else having this problem?? What am I doing wrong?? Kind of weird both keyboards I've tried giving me the same behavior. Right now I'm using a Logitech cordless keyboard(NOT the freedom keyboard), and I have never had any issues with it. [ June 19, 2002: Message edited by: Jennifer Sohl ]
Hmmm... Lets see you put fresh batteries in it and it works for several days before it stops, putting fresh batteries in it again makes it start working for several days before you have to do it again... It is most likely caused by the angle at which you are sitting relative to the hard drive on the computer. The magnets in the hard drive are obviously draining the energy stored in the battery at an accelerated rate. What you should do is buy one of the new magnetically shielded batteries available at all the local defense contractors. Or, change the angle between the battery compartment and the front facing of the hard drive to be some prime number of degrees that is less than the product of the size of the hard drive and the number of actual bytes stored on it. That should take care of the problem for you. hope it helps [ June 19, 2002: Message edited by: Dave Vick ]
The only other one I can think of is to go get yourself a hamster and one of those wheels they run on. Take two paperclips and the cap from a ballpoint pen and hook it up to the keyboard with exactly 2.364 meters of aluminum foil rolled into a tube. That should do the trick. Don't forget to feed the hamster on a regular basis though If for some reason that doesn't work then try Ravish' suggestion and move closer to the receiving unit. Sitting on your bed in your pajamas 10 feet from the computer as you telecommute from home is too far away I'm not helping am I [ June 19, 2002: Message edited by: Dave Vick ]
