This is definitely a good hint for those of us that are stuck with XOs with failing keyboard. Was there any sense at the meeting of how common keyboard failure (i.e. sticky keys) are in the C2 (i.e G1G1) models?
I bought one of these mini keyboards for my XO but it acts like the ctrl key is stuck "on". XO keyboard works fine. Just tried keyboard on another computer and it works fine. Any ideas?
Well, I know that if your XO keyboard is sticking, an external keyboard will "echo" the same problems unless you disconnect the main keyboard internally. But you say your XO keyboard is fine, so I'm not sure.
Don't know if this is your issue, but have you tried this?
When you plug the keyboard into the XO, notice that all the special keylights at the top of the keyboard light up. Apparently, there some kind of issue with the XO's keyboard mapping that does this. You'll find that the caps lock, scroll lock and num lock's are all activated and they can't be turned off. The way around this is that within 2 seconds of plugging it in, press the caps lock key twice. You'll see all the lights go out and you're back to normal.
