    I read the posting of someone who was having similar problems, but there was no sure answer. I think I have come closer to figuring out the trigger, now if someone can help me pin it down, then figure out how to fix it next time it happens. I believe that somehow the bottom of my hand is hitting a combination of keys in the lower left corner of my keyboard and it is disabling my keyboard(maybe alt or ctrl + something else). I'd like to figure out what I'm hitting and how to undo it. The only way I know how to correct it at this time is to reboot. Any ideas?

    Nothing you do would make it go dead besides it just wearing out, fluids spilled on it, plug on back of the computer loose, cord bad, etc. Pressing keys would not do it. Keyboards are kinda made for the keys to be pressed without the keyboard going dead unless it goes bad.
