    My Laptop is running Windows Vista and recently the CD Drive has decided to open all by it self. It appears randomly. At first I thought I was accidentally hitting the eject button, but now I realize I wasn't. It is not a huge problem, but definitely very annoying.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    It there a key combination that eject the CD drive that your might be accidently hitting. My laptop uses <FN>+<F10>. The <FN> key is close to the <CRTL> and Windows keys.
