Usually computer keyboards are not locked. The problem which you're facing it due to the non-recognition of the keyboard by your computer. You should shut down your computer, switched off the power supply then remove the keyboard connectors and plug them again. Then you should on your computer and your problem will be solved.
If you'd still face problem then go to My Computer>Control Panel>Keyboard>Hardware settings> Troubleshoot. And your problem will be solved.

or

Remove any special drivers for your keyboard/mouse (if you have any drivers other than the normal windows drivers), then remove keyboard and mouse from the device manager.

Reboot the machine and let windows refind them and install the default mice/keyboard drivers. Don't mess with any other fancy drivers to support extra mouse buttons or anything until you know you are working at this "basic" level.

Leave it like this for a few days to see if it works ok. If this works, then my guess is its a driver problem....be very careful if you install additional drivers. If it still does not work ok, since you say you've tried the keyboard on other computers, then I might suspect the ps2 port has gone south. That would be bad, because that would require a motherboard RMA/change.

How do you unlock the keyboard?


First of all, you need to turn off your computer and then disconnect the keyboard wire from the computer and wait for 2 minutes and re-attached it and then turn on the computer. Now check if you are able to use the keyboard to unlock it.
If issue persists, please try another working keyboard and check if that fix the issue. If still there is problem, it is recommended to contact your computer manufacture for further assistance.

Spacebar on keyboard makes my computer go to sleep mode


Sounds like your keyboard is sending the wrong signal (the one telling your PC to enter sleep mode) to your motherboard when you press space key, which (if true) would indicate it's faulty. It could also be you've contracted a virus and is playing a particularly nasty practical joke on you (let's hope that's all it does). Try connecting another keyboard to your PC and see if that helps. If it doesn't, then you'll need to clean your computer of any viruses. Try also disconnecting your mouse and see if that changes anything. If your keyboard comes with a shortcut utility software for it, run it and check there's no shortcut set on your keyboard's space bar. You've additionally specified you're not using wireless keyboard, but could you also please write what OS you're on?

I had the same problem. I solved it by pressing the connect button on the back of the keyboard and then pressing the connect button on the wireless connection base. The keyboard and the base will sync up again. Should solve your problem.
