    Strange and irritating recurring matter on my SB2 15".

    Periodically, and at random intervals, when I get to the logon screen, when I am in reverse screen attached mode (tablet turned around with the keyboard facing backwards) when I am at the logon screen, the virtual keyboard that should pop up when I need tap the screen to enter my password won't come up.

    I have to either

    a. Hit the Settings button, bottom right of the screen, each time and select the On Screen Keyboard which is a full keyboard.
    b. Detach the screen, touch the password entry field which then pulls up the correct virtual keyboard automatically, re-attach the screen and then logon

    Anyone else seen this type of issue or a resolution..?

    How about turning the taskbar keyboard icon on?

    It is on, but has no effect at the "Logon on to your PC" screen, only applicable if you are already in the PC with the screen unlocked.
