    That is weird. For general troubleshooting:

    1) Repair permissions thru Disk Utility
    2) Reset PRAM
    3) Reset SMC

    See what happens when you swap out the keyboard with another keyboard.

    Thanks for responding. For some reason changing the keyboard solved some of the problems. That being said, I have to use one of these -made for windows- keyboards and none of old or new apple keyboards I have in office work with my mac pro.

    Also a lot of strange things are happening with the operating system itself. One for example is when I click on time machine it brings up spotlight... :confused:
