my wireless keyboard is doing odd things:
delete button gives blip sound never did before /star icon flashes on screen at 'blip'

space bar gives =/ instead of space

the 'p' key turns on the cap lock

Let's start simple - check to see if you're still set to use the appropriate keyboard. Head on over to System Preferences > Language & Text > Input Sources and make sure you're set to use the right keyboard.
