Eject key

Extremely basic blog entry...

Have a Mac that suddenly started giving you serious trouble with the on-keyboard eject key? You are not alone.

Apparently the most recent system update changed how the eject key works. Rather than immediately ejecting/injecting the tray when you hit it nothing happens! You actually have to hold the eject key down now, 2 seconds in fact. This is a new protective feature put in because laptop users were ejecting their DVDs on accident all the time due to the layout of the keyboard.

The following article is the 'official' reference to this. It is nice to know that my Mac Pro isn't busted.
