    The Z key on my MacBook has suddenly stopped working. I have a password that has the letter Z in it, so I obviously can't unlock it. I have a password set for waking it from sleep, but auto login for when it is off. If I hold the power button to turn it off, it still asks for a password to turn it on. How can I unlock it?

    I would do that, but I don't have access to a USB keyboard. :mad:

    If you take it to a computer repair place and tell them your problem, they might let you borrow a USB keyboard. Bribe them with beer if necessary.

    And you know of no other people with a stationary computer?

    Your only choices would be:

    1: Get a USB keyboard

    2: fix your built-in keyboard

    3: reinstall the OS and don't add a Z into the new password!

    Boot from an OSX disk and change the password?
