    Okay... i just left my powerbook sitting on my desk for 'bout 35 minutes with the screensaver on - when i came back, i tried typing an IM to my trusty co-admin... and... the lowercase 'a' doesn't work on my powerbook.

    So i laughed and rebooted. - it didn't work.
    So i did it again, and reset the P-RAM. - it didn't work.
    So i plugged in An external usb keyboard. - it doesn't work.
    edit: So i repaired disk permissions. - none to repair.

    Can any one offer a reason why this is happening?? Can anyone help me fix it?

    Hmm.... i just tried closing all my apps, and now the 'a' key works again. So don't worry, just use this thread for your own enjoyment.

    (btw, all 'a's in these posts were made possible from copy and paste.)

    After some mild research, i found a thread on MSJ of someone who was having the same problem with the missing 'a' key: http://www.macserialjunkie.com/forum/viewt...ghlight=synergy

    It turns out it's a bug in synergy. Oh well, *disables synergy*.
