comment Why does my keyboard's “F-lock” button turn itself off?
@Mike Insch: Thanks for the help so far. I have tried it on both USB root hubs. Taking the PS2 mouse off the adapter seems to make it less frequent (I think heavy mouse-wheeling used to trigger it). Disconnecting the USB HDD seems to have helped too; I'll try putting the HDD on the other hub (not with the kbd). And since I've been paying close attention, I think you're right that it happens more often when I'm doing a lot of keychords -- though as I type this comment, it happened with just straight "vanilla" typing.

@Mike: Good point. I'll have to dig through my bucket-o-parts to see what I have that can rule out the adapter.

@new123456: Yes, I don't think the OS is intentionally doing anything to the keyboard, it is probably some side effect.

@Jonas - I've seen it happen on multiple keyboards, so I've already ruled out faulty hardware. It seems more like some kind of OS behavior, but I haven't been able to figure out what it is.
