I'm under warranty, but what the heck... I can actually get my spacebar to signal to the computer that I want a space by blowing on it. If I lightly rest my finger on the key without actually depressing it to the point where all other keys require to be depressed to for functionality, it will still signal a space.

I realized this when I was assaulted by growl messages informing me that the same song was playing a million times via last.fm (I was in itunes with my finger on the key). It's really obnoxious. Any quick fix, or should I just call the apple store an hour away (doh). I also really don't want to be without my MacBook

Could be something is lodged underneath it, dust... breadcrumb.... beerglass...(just kidding).

Some compressed air, maybe?

That's an excellent idea. Where would I put it to get it done? This thing's almost air tight around the chiclet keys haha.

Also, somebody on here had said that the warranty on refurbs is the full year... I'd just like to double check on that. Can someone else confirm before I start running around trying to find the answer on Apple's site?

YUP That is correct! You get the same exact warranty as the new ones. The only problem is that if you want to return it, you have to mail it back...you probably knew that already
