I've been having problems with my MacBook. Randonly the bottom row of keys ( zxcvbnm,. ) stops functioning except for the / key. If I let it sit for a while and then type crazily repeating those keys that weren't functioning it would suddenly begin to work properly. It occurs randomly with no rhyme or reason, but seems to me more so after it resumes from sleep. Any ideas? hardware? driver?

Thanks.....Jamie

It is most likely hardware, but you can try creating a new user through system preferences and logging in as that new user. If it still happens, it'll be hardware, otherwise it'll be software whether it is a corrupt part of that user profile or some sort of installed software causing it.
