I have a mid-2009 MacBook Pro (two weeks outside of AppleCare, of course!).  Last night, it appeared the caps lock key was sticking. It would type in all caps even when I hit the button and the green indicator light went off. Moments later, I noticed that the option that shows you all the windows on the same screen was suddenly going very, very slow. I tried to restart but it started in safe mode - twice. It finally started correctly on the third or fourth reboot. I hoped it was a fluke.


Unfortunately it's happening again and rebooting doesn't seem to fix it - I can't put in my password to login because it thinks I'm typing in all caps.


Any ideas, please?  Thanks.

    See ds store's user tip - Step by Step to fix your Mac.


    Maybe some of the pointers there would apply...
