    Firstly, here's a little background on myself. I have been rocking Windows since 3.1 till about 2 months ago. I'm very well versed when it comes to a computer and I'm honestly having a blast learning the beast that is Mac. My main problem so far is hitting the function key to push shortcuts instead of command. Can't seem to shake that habit. One thing I can't figure out is my right side shift key. When I'm typing and there happens to be more than one uppercase letter in the phrase/sentence or whatever....it just stops working. I think I've found the pattern. Every 3rd words that starts out with an uppercase, it just doesnt work. I have to caps lock to get it to work. What's the hell is going on? Is there a setting somewhere?

    Thanks for any help, hopefully I don't have a bum mac.

    No problems here, sorry- although it did make me realize I never use my right shift key and it feels really weird to do so.

    I JUST TYPED THIS SENTENCE HOLDING DOWN MY RIGHT SHIFT KEY INSTEAD OF USING CAPS LOCK AND HAVE NO ISSUES.
