    Question:

    Why don't the "quick buttons" or the "sleep button" (moon) on the keyboard work?

    Answer:

    ETC has disabled the shortcuts since they shortcut to Internet tasks.  The server should not be connected to the Internet at any time.  The sleep button has  been disabled.  It is very bad for Emphasis.  It will temporarily turn off the machine and will stop outputting DMX!!!
