    LOL... Far from it! Just puttering now.

    I came home and tried to apply my new fix to my other CF-31 I had already loaded. When I went to uninstall the hotkey driver... It wasn't there. No uninstalled drivers (Except Gobi and the 2 original I mentioned)... So I think I am going to reinstall W7 and do the upgrade again... Then try my fix again.

    It is holding steady on my other one so far.

    Okay... New issue. I bought a media bay 2nd battery for my new CF-31 MK2. I have 4 of these machines all the same. I have two running Win10. The 2nd battery is NOT read for some reason. Could this be because the Panny Power Mgt isn't installed?

    Try using the external charger first.
    The second batteries seem to do odd things.
    I have not completely figured them out.

    Shawn,

    Great (and correct) call... Thanks! All these little things are starting to come back to me again. I've been out of the Toughbook loop...

    Works like a charm now!

    Yup... That was kind of the fix for CF-29s and 30s when we went to W7... I remember doing that. I guess I need to play around with a few drivers.

    So here I sit in the Royal Farms parking lot on my 4G card... Downloading drivers from Panasonic. Man I miss the days of Broadband at my house. I really took it for granted!
