I use option/alt to zoom in and out when using paths. Then my keyboard stops working. If you're having this problem try to find which key you're hitting consecutively and hit it 5times in a row. I think we're activating a modifier or sticky key.

When i hit my key 5times my laptop beeps, you may have to turn your volume all the way up and set the option to chime (under system preferences>universal access>keyboard) when a modifier key is set.

After my keyboard stops working and I hit my key 5times again, it starts working properly. hope this helps!
You are a genius!
It was the Alt key indeed. Thank you for solving my problem!
