    I have noticed that my keyboard will randomly stop working after switching Spaces or using other shortcut keys. When I hit the CMD-arrow key to switch spaces, the Spaces box that shows which space you just moved to stays on the screen and the keyboard completely stops working. A logout of required. Any ideas/fixes? Thanks

    Running 10.6.2 with all updates applied.

    Random thought -- is it connected directly to the machine or through a hub?

    It is the built-in keyboard.

    duh - I don't know why that didn't occur to me. I had a similar issue with my external and a hub I was using...
