This is probably a timing problem with the keyboard.  I had a couple
of these keyboards a year or two ago, and I didn't have any problems
at the time, but I've heard of others.  My keyboards didn't have power
control keys, though I'm pretty sure they're not the problem, but it
does indicate possible differences in the controller.

I'd suggest you try 4.8 or 5.0 and see if the problem persists.  You
can get ISOs from Jarrod Sayers <jarrod.sayers at>.
