    What the!
    I was just playing BF2142, as both my keyboards stopped working. The apple wireless, and the built in, but the mouse still worked. It worked again, after about a minute!!! I have all the updates, and it is just a week old.

    Wireless keyboard? The battery might have been bumped, or be running low (but not low enough for a low power warning from Mac OS X). Wait, you say the built-in keyboard stopped working too? Then, I suspect that the part of Mac OS X that deals with keyboard input stopped responding for a minute... though I have no idea what could have caused that to happen.

    Okay, so it's definitely not the battery. Do you have some other application installed that deals with keyboard input - say, a keyboard macro program? If you do, you may have a clash between your game and that program. Fortunately, most keyboard modifier programs can be disabled temporarily.

    The only thing i have done, is use monolingual, to delete some keyboard input's, but i kept english, and all my apps are in english.
