    Unhappy Powerbook Sleep Issue
    Hi Everyone! I'm a newbie so I can use all the help I can get! K, so here's the problem. My new 2 day old 15" AL 1.25 Ghz Powerbook has a strange issue when it goes to sleep. After a long sleep, when it wakes up & I begin to type, the letters it types are what looks like Greek to me (literally). The E looks like the sigma symbol. How can I fix this? Has anyone had this happen? Otherwise, I am in love with my computer.

    Thx PowerbookG417 I'm not sure that I want to have to plug in an external keyboard to fix this every time this happens tho So far, for me, the only thing that corrects the problem (haven't tried your keyboard solution yet) is restarting the machine. But I don't want to have to do that either! Hmmm....what to do? Anyone else have any suggestions? I'm thinking a trip to the Genius Bar is in my near future.

    Have you tried repairing permissions? (Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility)

    Oops, didn't realize that had already been suggested. Ignore me.

    Thx guys! I'll try repairing permissions. I actually should of thought of doing that. From what I've read in most forums, it seems to be what you do when your mac gets a lil' wacky. Thx again

    By the way, my mac is very pretty and I've hardly been able to tear myself away from it since I got it!
