Good thinking, but not the case here. I've just watched it bring up and close the menu on it's own twice in the last 5 minutes and the phone is in another room. Sigh | :sigh:

I'm now disabling background processes to see if I can find the culprit...it seems to me like a software issue.

(16 hours later...interrupted by supper/movie/sleep)
The laptop stayed on all night, and the issue persists...it never went into screensaver/sleep/standby. As a matter of fact, my home office is across the hall from the bedroom, so I could watch the ambient light from the screen change every time the menu would pop itself up, then disappear seconds, or sometimes minutes later. This morning, the cooling fans were running at full speed, so I reboot it...hasn't messed up in the hour since then. Smile | :)

But, now to another issue that I've been noticing. I have a new system that when coming out of standby, displays the login screen, but the password box is filled. Confused | :confused: (30 chars to be exact and not my password) Maybe I'm being hacked! Laugh | :laugh:
