    Do a Ctrl Esc and then maximize the game again.

    Hi,

    What happens if you don't open the map? I know, I know - you need the map to see where to go but I'm trying to get a fix on what is happening. What happens if you leave it closed and open it when you're airborne?
    Also, what happens if you tie the map key to your stick - will you still have the same problem? Another Q. What happens when you use any other keys - I for Engine on, Ctrl E, etc?

    I'm just asking because I've never heard of this one before, and I spend a fair amount of time in HL. Is your keyboard connection secure and is it PS2 or USB?

    It sounds very frustrating

    Sometimes when you click in the map area with the mouse, you accidentally bring up the chat window. If you close chat by clicking elswhere in the window, the keyboard will not respond. You must use the ESC key to close the chat to avoid this problem.

    If you find you've done this by accident, click back in the chat area to re-open it, then use the ESC key to close chat again, that should bring the keyboard back.

    Thanx for your answers guys...

    @Brando, If I remember right it only happens when I'm on the ground and I open the map, no other keys...

    @Tully, soooo I'm thinking you might have the answer, I will try clicking on chat window and Esc out of it next time it happens.

    Thanx again...
