View Full Version : Strange keyboard behavior (cant enter 'space')

Mar 27, 2013, 07:31 AM
Hi all,

Today, for second time (first was yesterday), I've come into strange problem. Suddenly, without any notice, my keyboard stopped working properly - I couldn't enter space, new line or use cursor keys anywhere in the system. 'Funny' thing is, I could use shortcuts, like 'cmd+spacebar' for spotlight, or I could enter space and new line, but with 'shift'... everything goes back to normal after restart. Its not keyboard, because it was like this on both my wireless and builtin MBP keyboard.

Is there some strange functionality for this or something? Did I pushed some magic keystroke accidentally? It would be strange, because it didn't happened to me before, and I have same setup for almost a year.

Any ideas?

This actually happened to me today while I was at school. When I was using Safari, I went to change the brightness and didn't work. All the other buttons worked great, so I gave it a restart and that fixed the problem. :confused:

Ha! I've found the culprit! Turned out it was color picker Sip (https://itunes.apple.com/pl/app/sip/id507257563?mt=12), that after picking a color is blocking those keys. Time to give devs a note.
