2 people use my computer and just recently when i switch to my user, the special function keys stop working (screen and keyboard brightness - not sure what other keys aren't working. spaces works and so does play/pause etc). also i can't log out using the key short cuts nor by going to the menu and selecting Log Out.


switching back to the other user, the keys still work. and if i set the brightness there when i switch back the setting remain on my side. but i can't control them. the only way to get them back is to restart the computer which i can't do from my user. when i select restart, it beach balls for a few seconds then nothing happens.
