    Well, after seeing all the threads about 'brightness level' and what have you, I thought that there was one very important question that has not been asked.

    So, everyone, what is your favourite key? I like 'Return' the best. Why? Becuase when you ab-so-lute-ly have to confirm an action, what key do you turn to? 'T' isn't going to cut it, nor is 'Shift'. 'Return' is your man, every time.

    I am decisive. I like 'Return'.

    I like space. It's the 'activate' key for any UI control that got the faint blue ring around it (as opposed to the glowing filled blue aqua button which the enter/return button is the activating key).

    The off switch. I like to pretend I have a life.

    The e key since its the letter that's in most of the words, so by typing, I'm pressing the E key more then any other ;)

    My front door key lets me 'press' it inside my front door, so.. yeah.

    I too find the carriage return key most satisfying. [great question.]

    The Play/Pause key I guess. It's F8 on my macbook's keyboard. It's seems like I get up from my computer so often and I don't like to miss parts of songs so it is a lot handier than having to navigate to dashboard and pausing/playing itunes through itunes' widget.

    I like the eject key that controls the cup holder.

    Those are invisible on the Macbook line, so I put my drink on the keyboard, without a lid, of course.

    :rolleyes: Return is for wimps; try coding a database transfer that will move over 100 tables from development into production erasing the old production environment with no undo command and some shoddy 10 year old backup system as your only safety net. That is why 'F5' is king around my office, you don't hit that key with impunity around here. :D

    "Delete"

    It allows me to get out of useless threads.
