    I just started having a problem with my MPB, Leopard, that's hard to describe. If I mouse click on menu items, for example the apple or spotlight menus, they fold down and then disappear right away, as if I were hitting the escape button. Typing is extremely flaky -- sometimes I can type a character or two, but that's about it. I can sometimes manage to type 'ls' in the terminal, but that just hangs. 'top' was ok though.

    It's intermittent, although it's been continuous for the last few days; the machine is unusable. I took it in to the apple store but as luck would have it, it worked fine there. I left it overnight for 'observation' -- they ran diagnostics and tried to reproduce the problem but everything was fine. But now it's back.

    I'm going to take it back to the store, but was wondering if anyone else has seen this problem?

    Thanks.

    Steve

    It could be a stuck key but the guys at the apple store said they checked for that.
