This question may have already been asked numerous times; however I did not locate any related threads on the subject through the search line so I'll put this question out to see if anyone can assist me. I recently purchased a Targus remote keyboard to use with my iPad since I use my Word processor a lot and I prefer the external keyboard for this. It works fine except for one quite annoying problem. The popup keyboard continually 'pops up' on every application that i use when I have the external keyboard connected via bluetooth. What makes this so annoying is the fact that the popup keyboard assumes temporary focus as the input device for the application which causes the external keyboard, (the one I want to be the primary device) to omit characters. I have to hit the space bar repeatedly on the remote keyboard to regain focus to the application before I can resume typing once the internal keyboard pops up (which is only a few seconds later once I have stopped typing). This annoying problem actually negates the use of the external keyboard as far as I'm concerned. I was expecting there to be a configuration parameter that would disable the internal popup keyboard; albeit, the operating system should be smart enough to know when an external keyboard has been connected and would disable the internal keyboard popup function without having to be told. Does anyone know of a way to disable the internal keyboard?
