    I was recently using my mac keyboard (the new aluminum thin one) which I've had since about Christmas last year...and it randomly just started typing in caps..and any number key i would hit would use the symbol rather then the number. I checked the shift buttons and they aren't pushed in..I also checked the cap-locks which wasn't on..what would cause this and is their anyway to fix it???

    It could be a problem with the electronics inside, it is just broken but I've also seen stuck shift keys. Just some dirt that jams it up (or should I say jams the key "down")

    I've not been happy with Apple's keyboards or mice lately. More style than function, I think.

    There was at least one update for the firmware in the keyboard so if you have not run system update yet since starting to use it I would give that a go.

    Hmmmm...all my software seems to be up to date and I've had the keyboard for almost a I'm pretty sure that isn't the issue..The weird thing is that I've plugged my older keyboard in and it works fine, but if I shutdown my iMac and switch keyboards and then turn it back on it goes into safe boot...would that mean my keyboard is corrupt? Strange
