    The device driver for the 'Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard' device is preventing the machine from entering standby. Please close all applications and try again. If the problem persists, you may need to update this driver.

    I am having this problem on my tiny mediabook does anyone have any solutions for this please ? I have tried updating te driver but xp keeps telling me the correct driver is installed.

    I have tried with a plug in PS 2 Microsoft Natural keyboard, the laptop still refuses to hibernate with the same error message. I have also tried specific compaq & olivetti laptop keyboard drivers but with no joy.The keyboard on the laptop is an 87 key type.
    The laptop is the A360 model shown at this link
