You are correct. Now you know WHY I don't particularly like WIRELESS keyboards. This happens to me a lot. Never again with a wireless mouse of keyboard! :( Thank you for the update.

By the way, Donald, did you notice that you are on the roster of 2010 artists to be featured on Music and the Artist?
