    Can someone please shed some light on this problem?

    I have a Core Duo MacBook Pro with Leopard installed and Windows Vista Home Premium. Once Windows Boots and the drivers start loading, immediately once the keyboard manager starts loading, my MacBook Pro turns itself off. I need to turn the computer on and then again, it turns off. After the third time, I turn the computer on, it finally starts. This is getting quite frustrating, as I need to use Windows on my machine, and getting started can take up to 5 minutes. I have re-installed both Leopard and Windows Vista twice and I still have the same problem. I have worked out to be the keyboard manager conflicting with something, but I don't know what.

    Can someone please help?

    Have you attempted to boot into Safe Mode to see if it happens there?

    When you say "keyboard manager", do you mean Apple's keyboard drivers or are you using some third-party application? If the former, disable them and see what happens. If the latter, uninstall it and see what happens.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yes I have attempted to restart in safe mode and it starts up fine. The keyboard manager is from apple - installed from bootcamp 2.1. I have uninstalled the keyboard manager and it has worked fine. Re-installed it and the same thing happens. It's very strange and the only thing I can think of is that it is conflicting with something, but I don't know what.
