    A shot in the dark, but resetting the PRAM might fix it, it's sorted out laptop keyboard problems I've had before. Also make sure you don't have number lock selected, that can mess with short cuts (but, in my ibook, doesn't actually disable the relevant keys)...

    EDIT: and if you don't do this regularly, you should: use disk utility and run "repair permissions" on your main drive.

    Did you try a restart?

    Sometimes things just get buggy.

    i try restarting it and it doesn't work... and before that i have this problem where by my sound of trashing my unwanted file will not sound as well! I serious wonder what is happening and what can be done to solve these 2 problems... There are sound to other application, iTune etc but just that when I removed my unwanted doc and files to trash, (unsually there is a crushing paper sound) there is no sound sometimes... it recover after awhile but no definite expectation of when it recover.
