keyboard stopped working

Postby Tex-Twil on Mon Apr 07, 2008 1:41 pm

Hello,
I have a really stupid problem: my keyboard stopped working after I held a Ctrl key for a while. There was a popup asking me if I want to keep this shortcut or not, I clicked continue without reading the rest and then my keyboard just stop reacting. It works if I log out to another account or in windows ...

what happened ??

Thanks,
Tex

It's a function found in most OS's in wind0ws you click control, shift or whatever five times or more to inwoke the sticky function, I guess this is a help funtion for those with reduced motoric skills for instance, you can always disable it if you want...
