    I have an aluminum iMac with the new aluminum keyboards, and since last night, the delete button hasn't work. The only way I can delete forwards is by pressing shift +delete, and i can delete backwards by pressing fn + delete. This happened after I was playing around with the speech stuff in leopard, and i chose to have it voice over everything just for fun. Once I realized that this happened, I turned off the voice over, but I remember reading something about sticky keys. Is there any way to get my delete button to work without pressing shift before?

    The Sticky Key toggle should be under the Keyboard tab in the Universal Access pane.

    same problem

    hi. I have the same problem, I bought this imac used, and the guy I got it from had this feature set. I have to press shift-delete to delete, I cant just press delete. It is really annoying. I have searched all throughout the system preferences and I cannot find how to turn this setting off. Does anyone know??
