I've tried many ways to find out how to turn on the fingerprint reader but i cant find one. I have a Hp ENVY m6. When I got it, the fingerprint scanner worked and after I shut it down, it stopped working. I went on device manager and unchecked the box that said "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" but the fingerprint scanner still didn't work.
Ps. I have windows 8

Add me to the list. After searching the web, seems like this is a HUGE unsolved problem, not being addressed by HP!
How long did they know Win8 was coming?

Add me to the list too! I've been doing days of research and it's so frustraiting, I can't fix it at all. The only think the finger reader lets me do is sign onto my user accound using the sensor instead of typing in a password. Apart from that it wont detect anything!
