    Angry Media Eject Key stopped working
    These are pretty minor, but whatev.

    after upgrading to 10.4, my media eject key stopped working, on both my work and home computers. anyone else encounter this? anyway to fix it?

    also, in indesign, the key command for "update incopy story" is Command+F5. when i upgraded to 10.4, the key command for "Voice Over On/Off" for the system is also Command+F5. now i cant use the key command in indesign and this has slowed my productivity down quite a bit. is there any way to override the Voice Over command? thanks in advance.

    Are you talking about the Eject key to eject a CD/DVD? Did you install all the updates in Tiger? If so, they put a delay on the Eject key to prevent an accidental eject. Hold the key for 1-2 seconds and you should see the eject symbol on the screen.

    On your other issue, open System Preferences and keyboard & Mouse. Click the Keyboard Shortcuts tab and look for your Command+F5 Turn VoiceOver Off/On. Uncheck it.

    Yeah that delay thing was quite annoying, but it does help when you accidently push it and then are pleased to find out nothing is coming out.
