Hi Marcus, I use an ipad register through shopkeep. Works okay. Ipad Bluetooth picked it up no problem. Once in a while, the scanner does not register all the numbers on a upc. Other then that, works okay. Awesome battery life, though.
http://www.taotronics.com/media/downloads/Inventory%20Mode%20and%20Sleep%20Time%20Setting.pdf, There are codes to set the time or disable the sleep function. Those codes are not in the book that came with the product.
1. Set it to defaults.
2. Please make sure you can see the cursor on the screen and you can input something with your keyboard.
3. Please try the different codes to avoid your codes are not well made or printed. Btw, the scanner does better with white and black code instead or colorful background.
4. Please try different USB port just in case the PC problem.
5. Please contact us hen send us a clear pic of the code and tell us what kind of code it is if you know.
Mark, A wedge is scanner that fits between the keyboard and PC. This is a USB scanner. Just plug it into the USB port and you are ready to scan. So to answer your question, this is not technically a wedge scanner but a fully functional scanner none the less. I hope this helps. Tim
