Hi i've got a new powerbook G4 and wanted to know what is the key that has an arrow facing up with a line on top of the arrow. It's located next to the apple command key on the right hand side and the left (home) key.

Also can anyone tell me what it is used for as well I know it works as an enter key but what else.

Cheers

It's there as an enter key for the numeric keypad, at least that is what I have always believed and I have used Macs for about 10 years now. That said my only Macintosh laptop before this was a 180C...

Showing my inexperience but on the apple tab in the top left it has Force Quit and it has alt, command and 'some other key' . Does anyone know where this other key is I think it may be the power button on my PB. Can anyone shed some light.
