Razer Synapse's 'Lock Computer' Windows Shortcut, if set to key; locks screen 4ever if key was held

When opening the Synapse app, in the 'KEYBOARD' tab at the top.

After selecting a key on-screen (with mouse click) to assign a function to, and then selecting the

'WINDOWS SHORTCUTS' line on the left.

If you chose 'Lock Computer' at the bottom of the dropdown and assign it to a key, then hit save...


The next time you HOLD that button down, as opposed to just tapping it very fast, your keyboard (mine is a Razer Blackwidow V3 Tenkeyless, if it matters) will stunlock you in a permanent 'Lock Computer' loop until you unplug and replug your keyboard. Meaning the moment you login again you will be immediately locked out unless you unplug and replug in your keyboard.

There is a way around this by writing a macro, but there is no way that the direct way of locking your screen by windows shortcuts assignment is intended to do this, it's pretty bad.


Is this a known bug?

(I've jumped through enough hoops to post a single bug report,
if this wasn't the right place to post then forget it)
