It was a matter of mental discipline. Matoran do not have the mental discipline to activate masks, but I'm quite sure most of them know masks by their shape and power. Vakama of course would have to be very knowledgeable about this subject, being a mask maker. I think its possible that the suddenness and surprise of becoming Toa made it harder mentally to learn how to use their mask powers than most Toa. They were kind of created on short notice, after all. 

That would make sense.... if all they had trouble with was the activation. But it's been repeated numerous times that they didn't know their powers at all.

I know that the other Toa Metru were clueless about their mask powers, but was it ever specifically stated that Vakama also didn't know? I'm just having a hard time believing that a mask maker wouldn't even know what his own mask was, powerless or not.

See the other posts in this topic -- Vakama didn't know. I was just commenting on this in some of my more recent posts here. :)

Oh wow, that's kind of surprising to me. Oh well, I guess he wasn't ever interested enough...

Again, how would he know? Shape? Any mask can have any shape, it's just that that there are more generally accepted shapes e.g. A Hau can look like a kakama or a hau, it's just to avoid confusion,  the universally-recognised shape for Hau is... the hau.

Also, no Matoran wuld know his mask, because obviously, it's powerless, and I don't think it's easy to track down which disks your mask was made from out of probably thousands manufactured everyday in Ta-Metru.

So, yeah. Vakama just didn't know. Poor guy.
