    I have a PowerBook G4 15".

    Lately some of the keys seem to not be responding as well. I haven't spilled anything on it, but nonetheless, I would like to try to clean it.

    Before I take to prying off the keys, I was wondering if that's how I should go about it... I read something about a keyboard release tab or something, but I couldn't find one.

    Also, if there are any cleaning products anyone can recommend I would appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Tara

    I personally on my IBook just turn it over and use compressed air to blow it out, and dirt or dust. Unless you have spilled something even slightly into the keyboard, that should work fine..

    I recommend iSkin. I use them all of my Macs (4 of them) and if iSkin starts collecting dusts, I will just wash it at the sink and dry with the papertowel. Even my 4 year old Ti PB's keyboard is in the mint condition.
