Wow, I managed to fuck this one up good.

I turned off my light to go to sleep, and I didn't realize that my computer was plugged into the same socket, causing it to completely discharge. And the keyboard problems have actually managed to get worse. "Up" keeps getting triggered when I hold down "w" or "s" which I have to do to be able to type them. And I have trouble clicking and dragging. The arrow keys do not work reliably at all.

Maybe I can try to remove the keyboard when I get home...

Um, laptops aren't supposed to completely drain just overnight. And if it was a desktop, what were you doing plugging it into a socket with an on/off switch and not taping the switch on? My most amusing computer foible was when a birdseed got stuck under my laptop's space bar, and in the process of using canned air to blow it out, the V key popped off. Thankfully (a) it's not used much, and (b) Apple rushed me a new keyboard in two days.

It's a laptop, I was in a hotel (so I didn't know there was a switch controlling that outlet), and the laptop does not sleep when closed.

I've been having sticky keyboard problems that I mostly solved with rubbing alcohol but has since gotten MUCH worse. (Kid before me spilled soda or something on it.)
