    Thumbs down Please help! Sticky keys!
    So, I accidentally spilled pop on my Macbook Pro and now my TAB and SHIFT keys are sticking. The more I hit them the stickier they're feeling! I dont know how to fix it! Can anybody help me out?

    Also, if you spilled pop on that machine you've got MUCH BIGGER PROBLEMS than a couple of sticky keys. The "sugar" from that pop is likely eating away at your motherboard right now ... the parade of mysterious problems should begin shortly.

    It's a thread where people discuss their sticky keys.
