    since a couple of days my Macbook keyboard is acting very strangely. When I turn my Mac on, every second time (!) the permanent shift key and the Num. F6 key are activated, but the keyboard reacts as if they were not. When I deactivate them it reacts the other way round. It requires a restart for the keyboard the act normal again. The next time I start my Mac it is wrong again.
    Hope this description was understandable.

    Has anybody experienced the same or something similar?
    Will 10.5.2 be the fix for this?

    Thx to all!

    In R4, more or less
    I don't know the specifics, but several people are having intermittent keyboard issues with MacBooks. I thought Apple released a software update that was supposed to fix this, but I could be mistaken. Check your software update. It's most likely software/Leopard related, but there's an outside chance it's a hardware problem (loose connection happens). Search around for more information regarding well known keyboard problems of late.
