    Laptop Keyboard going to off mode after every 5 second


    Hello guys ! My keyboard (built-in) goes to sleep mode after every 5 second. I am using a HP laptop. I have to press a key to get it back in to active mode. Most of the time the first key stroke doesn't work. What should I do ? Another problem is whenever I am trying to rename a file it gets selected and I can not rename it. Pretty annoying staffs ! Thanks in advance.

    Scan for malware.

    Try an external keyboard and see if you get the same results.
