Well - this happened during a race event yesterday (but also once before already), it was only in/for one segment/race (race with only one segment) and afterwards it hasn't happened again. Nevertheless I think I post it. Maybe it rings a bell ...

When pressing the space bar during a race (Track Call) the race time is supposed to be paused and the track power is switched off. On our system the latter is done via parallel port and relay card. But I think this doesn't play a role.
In the case(s) I'd like to mention/describe here both time pause and power off were not initiated. We tried several times, but it never worked. Unfortunately we forgot to try the corresponding button (mouse click). Our solution was to switch off the power separately and to restart the segment/race again with the remaining time - afterwards the achieved laps were added manually. Once the race has been restarted the space bar worked without any problems again.

Any idea ... ?

I suppose you use version 5 ?
I think your cursor was on a place where the space bar have no effect, if you navigate in the menu of Pc Lap Counter or another window is opened and actived (like the reports window, driver settings window, track settings window, etc...) then the space bar have no effect.

Oh yes - we use the latest version - 5.00d.

Hm - the mouse pointer not in the window? For sure we haven't used the mouse in between and no other window has been selected. But maybe the mouse pointer has been moved by bad luck (and without clicking) outside the active window. I'll test that. Thanks for the hint!

Today we finished our three day's kids event and it happened once more. Unfortunately it was just before the end of the segment, such that we again could not test, whether then corresponding button worked.

the mouse pointer position is not important, the more important is the active window , the space bar work only when the active window is the main screen of PCLC but regarding your explanation it was the case...i will make some test
