    My MacBook's space bar is really sticky. It started today.

    I could always take it somewhere, but is there a way to open it up and just clean a bit under it, etc?

    I know on the G3 iBook's we used to have at my elementry school, keys would just pop on and off all the time. But the keyboards where different then.

    Can I still do that? What are the odds of breaking the key?

    How should I go about doing this, or should I bring it to London Drugs and have them do it? (no Apple Store in Vancouver. Nearest Apple speciality store is too far for a casual non-hardware visit).

    I am confident with computers, but I don't want to void my warrenty and/or **** over my macbook. I know it won't make a difference but 2.0 white.

    PS- sorry for re-post. I just realized that the other forum isn't for hardware stuff.

    Uh...

    Maybe you should stick to PG-13 sites.

    I hear those are easier clean up.

    Sorry...

    Okay, I figured my immature remark might have been followed by a flood of helpful responses, but...

    Here's a guy with a similar problem and also without a solution:

    Heck, I can't even find more than a few mentions of cleaning a macbook keyboard on the internet...anyone else having any luck?
