    I keep getting static shocks every time I take my hand off my keyboard and put it back down! Literally, every time! :confused:

    Anyone else? :p

    Are we talking about the new slimline USB keyboard here or one of the MacBook Pros?

    Cause I used to get static discharges from my MBP but now I've prevented that from ever happening again! I've added a wrist matt to the palm rest!

    I was referring to the new slimline USB keyboards. I wish there was some sort of static mat for it.

    Oh.. maybe you should check to see, if there's grounding between your mac and the mains outlet... I think bad grounding could be a cause for static discharges, occasionally something you wear, can cause a static build up.
