(b) An external Apple Pro keyboard?

3.3. If (c), did you install any manufacturer-provided software for the third-party keyboard? If so, check their Web site for an update to such.
3.4. Have you changed how the fn key works using the instructions in "Mac OS X 10.4 Help: Using function keys on portable computers"? This may affect how the Eject key works.
5. If none of the above apply, then immediately after the problem occurs, check the ends of these Console logs for clues.
