How to troubleshoot sudden text input failure?
This happened for the first time since I started using this MacBook Pro in the last 10 weeks or so. The keyboard suddenly stopped working and the only keys that worked are the function keys (as special keys, ie., adjust sound brightness etc.) and the Ctrl+number to switch between expose screens. I have tried several other combinations and nothing else worked. Even after connecting to it over VNC the keyboard didn't work. It did recover after a reboot, but I hate rebooting, that is so windows like. I am wondering what techniques I could have used to recover from this situation if it were to happen again. May be there is something diagnostic that we can do to figure out the root cause? I am relatively a newbie, so anything would help.
