    Has anyone else had this problem. Sometimes while I'm browsing in Firefox my keyboard just stops working. If I close the monitor and wait for it to go to sleep and then open it, it will work. Any ideas?

    Make sure you didn't accidentally press num-lock or scroll-lock or one of those. I did that once and didn't notice and thought my macbook was all messed up. If num-lock is pressed I think there should be a green light at the top of your keyboard. or maybe you're not a dolt like me :)

    Might also be a loose connection, or maybe a bug in the firmware.

    Who knows?

    I'm going to try using Safari and see if it happens
