So my macbook running leopard, the keyboard is acting odd. Some things I have found so far are caps lock is off, but when I type it's stuck on permanent caps lock, num lock doesn't light up, I can't type some letters for some off reason like "L" or "J" and backspace doesn't work. Along with the numbers, when I minimize a window it does it the slow way as is it's stuck on shift also. surprisingly plugging in a USB keyboard works. Also the trackpad seems sluggish in reacting. I haven't done anything to my mackbook, I just came home to it and found it this way. I have looked, but cannot find any solution, and I don't have Apple care, so taking it in would be my last resort. But really any suggestions would be appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks

Weird stuff does sometimes happen at random, but there's usually a good reason.

Couple of Questions:
Do the keys work after restart?
Has there been any physical damage?
Do you have any funky keyboard settings?
Have you updated the OS to the latest version?

Just a stupid kid with a computer, so take my advice with a grain of salt if that makes a difference to you.
QUOTE Thanks
