I know that when i press any of the keys that cause an LED to be lit
(scroll-lock, num-lock, caps-lock) under pccons i get a reboot, and
under pcvt i get "Timeout for LED command" or some such -- if you press
the keys quickly enough, the machine will reboot, even under pcvt --
i got around it (sorta) by just simply return()ing isntead of even
trying to send the LED command, and it doesnt die on me any more, and
since my led's werent working anyhow, doesnt make a whole lot of
difference. ;-) Perhaps i just have a bad keyboard or something.
FIS, my computer is a non-descript, AMI-Bios based motherboard with
an AMD DX2.
