    I was trying to do some stuff with widgets and, probably a mistake, but was following a mac world article. I entered the following, but ever since then things have been running a bit odd on my Powerbook. For example, command, fn, ctrl, opt keys have all now been set to be sticky and I don't know how to get rid of it. It's quite annoying. This is the terminal line I entered:

    defaults write com.apple.dashboard devmode YES

    I logged in and out and did my thing, but now I want to get out and really tired of this, Please help, I would really appreciate it.

    The devmode defaults boolean shouldnt make your keys sticky.
    I'd guess you might have accidently hit one of the hotkeys (Shift 5 times).

    If you still have issues then check System Preferences>Universal Access prefPane (the Keyboard Tab) and Disable the stickies hotkey and turn it off if you dont use them also :)
