    Same problem. Adjusting the screen worked for me. Doesn't seem like that would be a software issue?!?!

    I've been having this problem as well on my 8 day old 2.2Ghz SR MacBook. It has gotten progressively worse. Last night the keyboard was going every few minutes. Most of the time I can get it back by putting the computer to sleep and waking it up a few times but last night and this afternoon I had to reboot. When I rebooted, the computer just hung on a blue screen until I manually shut it down after more than 10 minutes.
    I brought it this morning to the genius bar and was less than thrilled. She wanted me to recreate the issue (which of course it wouldn't do it for the 45 mins I tried), never even touched my computer, and then sent me home. She told me if it was a consistent problem to bring it back and they would ship it out for a new keyboard since they didn't have any in stock.
    This is really frustrating!!

    I have the same problem. Just got the Macbook SR last week with 10.5 pre-installed. The unresponsiveness is rather random, happens slightly more often after waking from sleep. Not impressed.

    I got a MacBook Pro ten days ago and installed the provided Leopard disc. Same problem. I've not upgraded by old PPC 17" PowerBook to see if it has the same trouble but it's irritating as **** (in fact it happened when I went to log in to the Support site so that I could post a reply and has happened again since I started typing this). I hope 10.5.1 fixes this.

    I doubt a new keyboard is going to help. It seems to be effecting everyone with macbooks, even the older models. I just bought one today, and I don't hold much hope that it won't have this issue. But it's pretty obviously software when down grades to Tiger fix it.

    Yup, My wife's new Mac Book purchased 11/3 with leopard feezes once a day. Restart is the only cure.

    I think I've seen this on a Mac Book Pro too. But can't confirm.

    So have any of you guys tried the PRAM reset as outlined above?

    I've STILL not had the issue reoccur so I'm wondering if it's managed to clear itself. If I was still suffering from it I know I'd be trying the reset procedures.

    Would be really handy to know if they are or are not working for peeps.

    Ditto here - Put a new hard drive in my MacBook, installed 10.5, then used the migration assistant to transfer my old user settings. Everything was great for about 3 days, then my keyboard just stopped working completely. I rebooted to no avail. Went to the genius bar and stumped them - they suggested a full re-install of leopard. I did that - again, didn't work. It must be some sort of driver issue, because the keyboard works fine when booted from the Leopard install DVD, and right now I've booted from a USB drive with the old 10.4 install, and it works just fine. I'm going to try the PRAM reset and see what happens.

    Just tried resetting PRAM and SMC - neither one worked.
  • ItsDaKronic Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I bought mine 11/3 brand new 2.2ghz with 2gb ram and the keyboard started to freeze a couple of times after like 5-10 on inactivity.

    *So far I think*
    the only way to fix this is just to put it to sleep and wake it or restart. Until the 10.5.1 upgrade I think this problem will be persistent on all leopard machines.

    Is Apple watching this thread?

    This is ridiculous. Mine does the same, and I'm this close from going back to 10.4

    My MacBook has this same problem too.
    Bought only 9 days ago, had this problem from first night of using it!
    Rebooting doesn't help, the problem is intermittent and doesn't go away.

    I see someone said to "zap the PRAM"-- wow, is that really still being suggested as a solution? I thought OS X was supposed to be so modern that such old fashioned voodoo things like "zapping" PRAM or updating DLLs and such was a thing of the past. Such a blast from the past it indeed was to see this... seems somethings haven't changed since the last time I had a Mac, back when I was rocking a Mac IIsi in 1991.

    When will Apple fix this problem??
  • ItsDaKronic Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    They have to take care of this issue in the next software update and im pretty sure they will.
  • OAP Pepper Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Do we know that Apple has actually acknowledged this as a fault? Is there a place where we can see it logged as an official bug?
  • b_johnsen Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Add yet another one to the list.

    I bought mine on 11/8/07. I had the keyboard freeze on me two times the first day.
