    This is a nightmare and it gets irritating.
    What happened was that I just booted my mac up. And suddenly, all the controls and stuff were screwed. What's happening on my mac is that the computer itself just keeps hold either the command or space key and I wasn't even touching anything.
    So basically, when I try typing in something, it keeps holding the spacebar, so it comes out like t h i s.
    Just an example. And sometimes, it would just hold the command key, and sometimes drag off menu-bars that I don't want to.
    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
    It's probably a software problem, but I have no clue what to do.
    Anyways, if you can help me, please give me a reply.

    Thanks

    Try a disk repair and repair permissions

    There may be a keyboard firmware for your system. Also, you can try to reset your PRAM.

    Reset the PRAM first and if that doesn't work try resetting the SMC.

    If either of these don't work, then try hard-drive based fixes like permissions and whatnot, but that's a classic PRAM/SMC issue by the symptoms you're describing.

    You can try running disk utility and repairing your permissions, see if that has any effect.
