    Hey Guys,

    I'm having trouble with a Macbook. This is only happening after I upgraded it to Leopard FYI. Every 30 minutes or so, the keyboard locks up and I can't type until I restart. OS X is telling me I can't install the keyboard software update so I presume it is already installed. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    There was an update to fix keyboard issues recently.

    Like I said, I tried installing all the keyboard updates but it told me they could not be installed.

    This has happened to me a couple of times recently. This morning my MacBook's screen saver had kicked in and I wiggled the mouse to bring up the password box and the keyboard would do nothing. I had to hold the power button down to restart then it worked fine.
    The first time was a couple of weeks ago, I don't remember what I was doing but I sat down and the keyboard just wouldn't do anything. Mouse/trackpad work fine. Restart always seems to fix it so I assume it's a software issue, not hardware.
