    My MacBook Pro Keyboard will stop allowing anything to be typed for about 30 seconds to a minute. It does this randomly. The sound up/down keys will stop working, the keyboard light up/down, the screen dimmer all stop working. The mouse will work fine and I can use the computer and visit websites by clicking on them etc, but I just can't use my keyboard. Has anyone else had this happen?

    This was a known bug that I encountered that was fixed with a Software Update. Have you installed the latest updates?

    I have a black MacBook and this had happened to my sister's a lot but she just pressed caps lock a lot until the light lit up. I've done this and it doesn't work. I already tried a million things including a built in keyboard update that didn't work. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Latest version is 10.5.4

    Perhaps you should run the Software Update, as found under the :apple: menu

    Hi Everyone, I new here.

    I am having this same problem with my MacbookPro 17" 2.5; 2Gb.

    I have al the latest software updates leopard 1.5.5 etc and the problem still persists - Its seems to occur more frequent when I have alot of programs open (use alot of memory) and then use spaces/expose.

    Any thoughts, Mac masters?

    Thank you

    AudioVoyeur, I had the same problem with my BlackBook but after I installed a firmware update it got perfectly fixed. My sister has an older MacBook and still has the problem because she hasn't installed the update. My only advice is to check up on Software Update or clear up some hard drive space.

    Hope this helps,
