    Hi guys. I think that my mac is getting dementia.

    Every time I reboot, my option and command key seem to be switched around. I go into my system preferences and check my modifier keys. In there, they seem completely right. So I close the window and try again to make sure I wasn't just being stupid.

    I try again and it still happens. So I go in there and press 'Restore Default'. Press ok and then everything works!

    Do anybody know any solution to this?

    You mean you have to sometimes press Option/Alt + W/Q/N to close, quit or make a new window?

    Correct. Every time I reboot, the command key is mapped to the option key, meaning that I'd have to press Option + Q in order to close a problem.

    Have you any hacks (system modifiers) installed, that could have remapped you keys?
