    I was using the embedded keypad on my PowerBook and the sleeve of my sweater got caught on the 'Page Down' key, so when I moved my hand away, the button popped off. Now I can only get the right side of the button back in place - the left side won't snap in. Any ideas?

    P.S. - Nevermind, found the Apple Knowledge Base Article on how to fix the key. Thanks anyhow!

    Yup, you just snap it back on. The hardest part is not worrying when it feels like you're going to break the poor thing. Had the same thing happen with a shift key on my ibook. Just puuussh (and lamaz breath if it helps)

    I was confused at first because the it wasn't "just popping on" like it did when they've come off before. I realized the little scissor hinge came off with the button itself, so I had to take it off the button, put it back on the keyboard, then snap the key back on. I feel like such a genius now. :p
