April 26th, 2008, 08:24 PM
Hi all,

I'm a new user of ubuntu and I have problems with my instalation.
My problem is: Randomly appear screenshot of my Desktop area. Sometimes the screenshot appear "N" times and my Ubuntu stops.

So, I searched of internet and I read that there are problems like mine. These problems are related with power management and wireless device. But, I don't know how can I fix my problem analyzed both problems (power management and wireless device).

I instaled Ubuntu on notebook HP Pavilon ze4400.

What keyboard layout are you using? Screenshots will happen every time you hit the Prnt Scrn key (it may be called something different on a non-English keyboard) but, if your keyboard layout is making some other key appear to be Prnt Scrn, it could be causing the problem. A possible solution could be to go to System->Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts and removing the shortcuts for taking screenshots.
