OS X :: The Command, Control, Alt, And Shift Button All Act Like Caps Lock?

Feb 21, 2009

When we upgraded to 10.5 and got the new iMac (I don't know which one caused the problem) I noticed that the Command, control, alt, and shift button all act like caps lock. I use those buttons all the time, and if I accidentally press one and have no idea what it is, I am stuck trying to figure out what to do.

I have a belgian azerty keyboard and OS X in english on my white macbook. Is it possible to change the caps lock key's function to shift lock so that it affects the whole keyboard rather than just the letters? I'd like to be able to type numbers without holding shift.

MacBook :: Shift While Caps Lock On

Nov 6, 2008

if caps lock is off, shift of course makes the letter you hit capital. However, if caps lock is on, and you hit shift, the letter is capital, not lowercase. In Windows it would be lowercase. Is my MacBook acting how is should?

MacBook Air :: Caps Lock And Mouse Button Not Working?

Aug 21, 2008

I've had my MBA 1.8 since the beginning. Just recently my my caps lock and mouse pad button doesn't work:

1. Caps lock
It technically does work, but I have to press the dang thing like 4 or 5 times until the green dot lights up on it

2. Mouse pad button
This also technically does work, but not properly. It is currently semi-broke. It's hard for me to explain in words. So I'll will try my best here. It's almost like a teeter-totter, I.E. the bar is never level. One side is always raised and the other is always lowered. If I click on the raised part of the mouse pad, it will make a clicking sound

I do not currently have apple care, but still have some time left to purchase it.

MacBook Pro :: Caps Lock Key Won't Work / Substitute For Caps Lock?

Feb 4, 2008

I recently bought a replacement keyboard on ebay for my MBP and just installed it. It's been about a week, and just today, I noticed the capslock key doesn't work.. I'm not sure if it has been this way, or if it recently just stopped. The light doesn't come on at all.

I was curious if this was a common problem? If not, is their anything I can do as a substitute for caps lock? Another key perhaps? Or, a button on the task bar or something?

MacBook :: Caps Lock Key Not Sensitive

Jan 5, 2009

I just got a new aluminum macbook, and the only thing that seems like a problem is the caps lock key is not sensitive like the rest of the keys. I tap it like every other key and it usually takes 2-3 or more times before it changes. Is there really anything to do? I hate to take it back for something so trivial. But I am afraid it will bother me more and more.

Hardware :: Alu Keyboard Caps Lock

Apr 7, 2009

is it me or is there something wrong with the caps lock key on the new aluminium keyboards? i like the keyboards but for some reason the caps lock just doesn't engage most of the time. someone said it was because firmware stopped it from coming on instantly to prevent accidental presses, but to me it seems like a huge design flaw - in my experience it comes on instantly if you press it in a certain manner. i've already got a replacement keyboard from apple because of this but the new one has the exact same problem.

MacBook Pro :: Unresponsive Caps Lock Key On New

Apr 2, 2010

I got a new Macbook Pro in December and straight away I noticed I have to really jab at the Caps Lock key to activate it, sometimes several times. Pressing it on the left hand side (where my finger naturally reaches to) almost never works. Anyone else have this? Is it a known problem? Would Apple be likely to be able to sort it out if I took it to a store, or am I wasting my time?

MacBook Pro :: Caps Lock Key Popped Off

Jun 6, 2010

So I basically just opened my MacBook Pro from when it was charging and the Caps Lock key randomly popped off. It's a brand new i5 15'' HR AG model, really no excuse for that to happen. The closest Apple Store is about 40 miles away, so if you can tell me how to put the Caps Lock key back on myself I would really appreciate it. I tried just putting the bars through the circles and pressing down and it just falls back off immediately, doesn't click on.

MacBook Air :: Turns Caps Lock LED On In Windows

Dec 20, 2010

This is for people who want to know if the Macbook Air is on, because Jobs decided to remove the power indicator led. It turns on the Caps Lock LED in Windows, without actually changing the state of Caps Lock. This script is for AutHotKey, so grab that first. The script is an adapted and fixed version of the script here (http://www.autohotkey.com/forum/topic10532.html)

MacBook :: Is Normal For CAPS LOCK Key To Be Unresponsive

Apr 25, 2009

Alright, well, my caps lock key on my new Macbook has been acting up. It's very unresponsive. I Googled this, and all I found were a few problems with caps lock being inverted. Well my problem is this; I push caps lock, and quite often it doesn't turn on. I need to give it a fairly firm push for it to turn on, however I don't tend to push it hard enough when I'm typing fast. Is this a normal problem or should I have it looked at? (Below is a video I made to show exactly what is happening; sorry for the bad quality) [URL]

OS X :: I5 MacBook Pro - Press Caps Lock Key Several Times Before It Actually Comes On

Aug 4, 2010

So I got my Core i5 2.53 GHz MacBook Pro back in April when they came out, and it has had some problems. All the the issues have been minor, but still annoying. First of all, I get the scroll wheel all of the time. Way more than a new computer should. Also, I have to press the Caps Lock key several times before it actually comes on. In addition, often times when I open iTunes, it just bounces for a long time until I have no choice but to force quit. After a few attempts it opens, but I feel like it shouldn't do this. Also, when I put headphones in the head phone jack, they don't work right away. Either they don't work at all and I have to pull them out and try again, or it takes several seconds to come on. Again, these are minor issues, but I still don't like it.

Intel Mac :: Caps Lock Key Stopped Responding?

Apr 25, 2012

My "Caps Lock" key stopped functioning.  Will not respond under the Keyboard Viewer either, though all the other keys do.  Light will not come on, so I have to use the Shift key for each letter that I want to type in capital letters.  I cannot find any on/off switches for that key under Help, or in System Preferences.  Did I hit a key combinations somehow, that deactivated the Caps Lock Key? I have the bluetooth keyboard that came with my i7 IMAC.

OS X :: Change Input Source (language) By Caps Lock?

Nov 8, 2009

I work with two languages and I would like to configure Caps Lock to toggle between them instead of default Cmd + Space. Of course it's not possible to change it in System Settings.

There's an application called Kirgudu which does the trick, but it's not as responsive as it could be, i.e. when I quickly tap Caps Lock to change the language and start typing immediately, the first letters will be be on the old language and only in the middle of the word it will switch the language to a desired one. This is bearable for me, but still annoying.

So I'm looking for a better solution. I guess it has to be something on a keyboard driver level or very close to it to process the keystroke momentarily. (Btw all the solutions I've tried back in my Windows days work even slower than this only Mac one )
