    On my MBP under Snow Leopard, the F-key keyboard shortcuts (e.g. Ctrl-F2 (select menu)) suddenly stopped working. This might have happened after a recent OS-update, I'm not sure. Anyone else have this problem, or a possible solution?

    I've already pressed restore default under Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts*, this made no difference.

    * Or something similar; my OS is in dutch so I'm guessing at the english terms

    Maybe you also have to press the fn key in addition to CTRL + F2.

    Thanks a lot!
    I looked up the screen in your screenshot, and found out that somehow the checkboxes for several shortcuts were unchecked. Checked them, and everything works properly now.
