    When we upgraded to 10.5 and got the new iMac (I don't know which one caused the problem) I noticed that the Command, control, alt, and shift button all act like caps lock. I use those buttons all the time, and if I accidentally press one and have no idea what it is, I am stuck trying to figure out what to do.

    Any help as to turning it off?

    Yeah looks like you have StickyKeys enabled, which is an easy mistake to make because it can be activated by simple key shortcut.

    To disable it go to Apple -> System Preferences -> Universal Access -> Keyboard tab then just select StickyKeys off.

    Also you may want to disable 'Activate sticky keys when press shift five times'. Hope it helps

    (It may actually be different on your machine because I am running 10.4)
