I've just bought a new (cheap) PS/2 keyboard.
When I hold a key down it get's interrupted after approximately 2 seconds. This is frustrating on games where things like holding a key down makes you run or shoot etc. After 2 seconds the running / shooting stops, and I have to release the key and press it down again.
It's consistently 2 seconds when I test via, Alt + tab. (The selection gets "selected" without me releasing the Alt key after ~2 seconds).
Although the keyboard is PS/2 I've got it connected through USB via a splitter. It's the only thing connected to the splitter however, as the mouse is in the PC's actual PS/2 slot.
Could the splitter be the problem or is it the keyboard? I've checked keyboard settings but there's very little there - nothing related to this. The driver is up-to-date apparently (although it is 2006).
Is this just an intended feature?
