    Hi - I have a thinkpad x61t. When it's in the docking station, whenever I press "shift" "alt" or "ctrl" a little pop up window tells me that key is being pressed. The laptop does not do this when it's out of the docking station. I've looked all over the control panel in vista and can't find any setting.

    Any ideas how to switch it off? Driving me nuts! Thanks.

    You mentioned that you have looked in the Control Panel so this may be something you tried already:

    Control Panel - Ease of Access Center - Make the keyboard eaiser use - uncheck 'Turn on sticky keys'.

    No, it's not sticky keys. Sticky keys makes shift, alt, ctrl work like caps-lock - one press on, two presses off.
