X200: Keyboards LEDs

The Caps, Scroll and Num Lock buttons on the keyboard can flash in different sequences when the X200 is either in one of the following modes.

User Contention

When using the X200 in conjunction with a CATX switch, the LED's on the keyboard will flash if the host that you are accessing is currently being used by another user. Any movement of the mouse or keyboard temporarily locks out other users from interacting with the host. After the user has stopped using the mouse or keyboard and the contention period (typically 2 seconds) has expired, then another user may take control over the host.
