    Extending power button pressed time for shutdown

    Hi,

    I've installed the ASUS for my elderly mum for Skype. Its working out great as its so easy for her to use.

    However, when she goes to switch off the transformer, she keeps the power button pressed a fraction too long and it offers to shut-down. She tends to select OK thinking that switches it off and as a result the transformer shuts down thus closing down Skype.

    Is there a way to extend the time the power button needs to be depressed for shut-down request ?

    Thanks

    Not an easy way. I think the best way is to teach her to tap the button to put it to sleep vs holding for 3 seconds to power off.

    Just tell her not to tap the button! Who cares about 30 minutes less battery life with 10 hours of battery?

    Why not install and use Screen Off and Lock from the market? This way she never has to touch the power button to put it so sleep, just press the widget button that you place in a very prominent spot for her... (I use it to save wear and tear on the button)
