halle-freaking-lujah, no more first keypress ignored on osx

dear apple: about goddamn time.

there’s been an issue with macbooks and macbook pros where the first character you type gets ignored. apple’s release note states it happens when the machine comes out of an idle state, but I’ve also noticed it (a lot) on window focus changes as well.

shaver let me know this morning that the fix was in. I bitch about it a lot in IRC, because typing “eh” instead of “heh” sends the entirely wrong message.

I’ve applied the fix, and it seems to have done the trick. now I’ll have to find something new and improved to drive me nuts.

oh, also note – you must exit sw update for the firmware updater to run. sw update only downloads the installer, and the script won’t run the installer (which doesn’t require a reboot) until you exit.

  1. It’s 2010 and I still have this ignored first keystroke problem on my 2009 macbook. Any ideas what causes that and can it be fixed?
