Unhappy Please help - fn key locked! - 05-21-2009, 11:32 AM

I think the fn key on my mini 9 got locked somehow and I can't figure out how to get it unlocked. Other forums tell me how to use keys such as "number lock" but there is no numberlock key on the mini 9. I can't type any keys that share an fn function -- either nothing happens or the fn function happens. Can't even type my passwork to unlock the screen so I have to keep turning the thing on and off.

BTW, how do I turn off the automatic password screen that appears if I am idle for 1 minute? Makes me crazy!!
