    Hi everyone -

    This morning the 'e' key on my keyboard stopped working consistently until I rebooted. Anyone else have this sort of problem on the 2016 MBP or any other Mac?

    Thanks.

    The new butterfly keyboard switches suck :(

    Tons of people are having issues with those new keyboards

    That's a new one to me. If it's not a coincidence, then it's not the same kind of issue others have had with keys malfunctioning, which has been a purely mechanical issue.

    Edit: as noted in another thread, the cooling of the machine during shutdown can affect the keys.

    Yeah, I was surprised that a reboot helped. It seems to be okay now, but I'm going to keep an eye on this.
