    Okay, so here are the issues (all of the following happened with both apple pro and third-party hardware):

    - About 70% of the time when my mac boots or comes back from sleep it won't recognize the first (and sometimes second) letter I press on the keyboard. (Makes typing passwords a real pain in the butt :mad: )

    - It also goes through brief periods where I will have to unplug and plug back in the keyboard and mouse or the mac won't recognize that they're there. This happens mostly when booting and returning from sleep.

    - Finally, sometimes when I boot from a CD the mac won't realize that the keyboard or mouse are there at all and I have to hard restart.

    On a separate note (maybe related, I don't know), my apple pro keyboard has issues with double typing all the time. BTW, I know that it's not me, since it only happens when I am on this computer.

    Any thoughts on what could be going on with this would be greatly appreciated.

    BTW, I have a MDD D1.25 FW800, 10.3.3 (let me know any other specs that would help). Thanks again!

    Yeah, I have tried several keyboards and mice (third-party too) and it seems to happen with them as well (the third-party mice even work less often when coming back from sleep), so I have switched back to the apple standards.
    Any thoughts?

    I do that routinely - after every install.
