Running a HP a6040n desktop w/Vista. When I shut down, after everything goes dark, often the 3 amber lights above the numbers keypad - Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock - will blink/flash rapidly. Sometimes they will not flash immediately but begin to do so after anywhere from 5 minutes to a few hours. I'm connected to the internet via ATT DSL and wonder if some website pings my computer and causes this to happen. Aso, when I put the computer in 'sleep mode' is doesn't stay there for very long but awakens soon as, again, I think other sites ping my computer regularly... HELP. Thanks, Steve

Thanks, Scott, this seems to have fixed the 'Sleep Mode' issue. However, the lights on my keyboard still blink/flash upon shutdown...

Any thoughts on this one?
