I've seen a few threads across the 'net where other people with GPD Wins mention having the keyboard issue.

There was even a thread where it was mentioned to GPD support. They linked to a driver update and asked the user to report if it fixed the problem. It didn't. :(

I also have the issue with the system crashing while in sleep mode. Combined with the keyboard issue, it's a real gamebreaker. I pretty much only use my GPD Win for visual novels w/ mouse input and a save anywhere feature as a result.

I keep installing official GPD updates and Win10 updates hoping something will fix it.

Maybe eventually I'll learn enough about electronics/computers to try diagnosing the problem at a higher level. But studying that stuff is just a very minor side-hobby for now.

I don't even use sleep mode. I have it hibernate when I close it.

That's a good idea, thanks!

For me, unfortunately, it scales back the usability of it as a UMPC. Nifty portable PC gaming device but undercuts its awesome potential.

I hate the keyboard on this thing, but then again this thing wasn't exactly meant for web browsing, and I barely use the keyboard much

Actually, I like the keyboard more than the touch screen keyboard on my phone (Galaxy S6). I typo A LOT on my phone because of the lack of tactile feedback.

Just typing this message, I had to correct a lot of typos. But my GPD win takes longer to type, but I rarely typo on it.

Sorry but nah. These cheap Chinese keyboards suck compared to the best of mobile software keyboards. I loved my HTC touch pro and touch pro 2 for a hardware keyboard. I wish we could get a mobile phone/PC like that again.

Looked it up and its being scalped. If you think about it all 3 companies (Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo) have handheld systems.


except Microsoft has nothing to do with it. Its just using there OS.
