    Phew!!!
    This problem has been driving me totally nuts, switching daily between accounting in excel (need number pad) and photoshop (using zoom and clone stamp a lot). Used to have to restart the machine every time I switched apps. I knew there was something going on because I could hear the little chirpy sound.

    Thank you thank you thank you - so pleased I came across this thread.

    thank you thank you
    I joined macforums just to thank you! This has been driving me nuts for a long time. I kept thinking it was some stupid osx bug and had to keep logging out and logging back in. Thanks for this!

    El Capitan
    For those of you looking for the Mouse-Keyboard option in El Capitan, it does not exist. Instead do the following to turn off the Option key 5 times deal.... System preferences>Keyboard>.. under key repeat slide icon to off.

    I hope this helps some of you out.

    I take that back that option does not work, HERE IS THE REAL WAY TO STOP the "press the option key five time to toggle mouse keys".... System Preferences>Accessibility>Mouse & Trackpad>Options>deselect the "press the option key five times..."

    This should work.
