OS X going crazy!

Hey,

I have an iBook G4 1.2ghz latest revision. Recently, I have experienced my expose going crazy - randomly sliding to the desktop over and over again in quick intervals, the screen darkness automatically decreasing to black, the eject button randomly being pressed, and multiple letters being pressed at random. It happens in bursts all at once. I know this sounds weird, but it has been happening more and more frequently, and Apple doesn't know what the problem is. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks so much!

Sounds like you might have a keyboard (hardware) problem, eh?

What'd you do to it? You obviously have not been showing it enough attention, or you did something to piss it off. It takes a lot to piss off OSX too.


Seriously though, a keyboard problem sounds like it could be the cause. Try swapping in a new keyboard temporarily if you have one.

Could be logic board, but whatever it is it's still under warranty. Take it in to Apple or give them a call. Could be easy to fix.

I think it is the keyboard

I think it is the keyboard because I have realized that physical changes cause this crazy thing to occure. I have found that just allowing the keyboard to rest on my computer (not secured in how it usually is) will solve the problem. Ahg! Any other ideas though? The logic board tests fine in Apple software test.

Thanks!

Pop out the keyboard, and unplug its connector. Connect an external USB keyboard. If this fixes the problem, you need a new keyboard - you can get them on ebay.
