    this is pretty annoying, but would it be a manufacturer defect? i have to forcefully press the button in order for it to register. anything i can do?

    It's a feature; keyboards have this in them so you don't accidentally click the caps lock key while you're typing.

    I can quickly tap my caps lock key over and over again very quickly, but it will never register. If I press it a little slower, it will register every time.

    well, if I press it abit lightly on the right side, it doesn't register either. But everywhere else seems fine, you just need a bit of a stronger force near the middle.

    I wasn’t complaining, I was just telling him it’s not abnormal.

    Wow! I did not know it was a feature. I thought I had a slight problem too.
