    Doh

    Somehow or another my keyboard does not work when i open up the finder.

    Obviously it works on other applications, so i'm assuming that i turned off a "keyboard function" accidentally. Is this true?

    If it's wired, try unplugging it, then plugging it back in.

    no, this is for my MBP

    everything else uses the keyboard fine, like safari for example ;)

    anyone other ideas

    thanks

    I had this happen to me yesterday (also on a MBP). Use Force Quit (in the Apple Menu) to restart the Finder. When I did this the keyboard started working in the Finder.
