First check in the Universal Access pref pane and uncheck Enable access for universal devices or be sure Mouse keys is off as well as Sticky keys.
Try closing the lid and reopening.
Check for any third party mouse software (Iike Logitech) that may be interfering.
Test with an external keyboard to rule out software.
Failing to find an answer in software, you may have a problem with the keyboard connection internally. If you are under warrantee or have Applecare, take it to them to possibly have the keyboard replaced. Otherwise, check out this link on how to check and fix a possible hardware problem:

Which keys lock the computer


There isnt a lock per-se. it might be sleeping. Tap the power button, if no response press and hold the power button. (Think toshiba wants aroud 5-7 sec. hold it for 10 just in case) this should shut it down completely.

Hit the power button again to turn it on.

PC LOCKED AFTER SHUT DOWN , I THINK WRONG


Restart in safe mode (press f8 when it starts up and choose safe mode with networking)

Then go into command prompt
Then type in "net user ACCOUNTNAME NEWPASSWORD"
it should look like this:
net user Bob's PC Pa$$w0rd123

That will reset the password to a default setting, and you should be able to gain access again.

Keep hearing "command not recognized"


well. the problem is that you're probably hitting the command button where you sumbit voice commands like: call "mom".
its a stupid thing to put on a phone, and I've never seen anyone use it. but whatever, verizon's stupid.

again, the voice command key on the enV is the clear button. so if you hold it down, you'll hear the "command not recongnized, after you hear "please say a command".
your hearing it over and over again because you accidently hit it, and since you dont say anything after the beep it gives, it goes "command not recongnized". i dont think it says "please say a command" when its on vibrate, but i couldnt be sure.

hope i helped :)

Accidentally locked my keypad


well I sat down and started hitting the keys looking for the 3 digit code starting with 100 and going up. Ends up it is a 4 digit code that I found by accident. I hit 2432 and phone unlocked. Give it a try and maybe yours is the same, good luck.
