    Default Dell Inspiron 17R N7110, Display off button doesn't work in Windows 8 Release Preview.

    Hi all,

    Dell Inspiron 17R N7110, Display off button doesn't work in Windows 8 Release Preview. Everything else is working great, just can't turn off display. The button is on the top right hand of the keyboard. It worked perfectly in Win 7, but not with win 8. When I leave my laptop, I like to turn off the display screen manually, instead of waiting for the screen saver to kick in. Would love to find a fix for this problem.

    Thanks.

    Check with Dell to get the S/W necessary for the keyboard.

    You could change your Power Options to turn of the display sooner.
