OS: OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.7 After a several months of work escape key stopped working. But it works with the Command, Option and Control keys (checked with 'Keyboard View'). Restarted finder with moving com.apple.finder.plist and com.apple.systemprefernces.plist.

How to fix it?

  • Why do you need the esc-key for? – Michiel Oct 25 '11 at 7:29
  • @Michiel I simply couldn't switch states between INSERT, VISUAL, NORMAL in vim via Terminal.app – scraplesh Oct 25 '11 at 7:39
  • good for you :-) – Michiel Oct 25 '11 at 8:26

Fixed by removing box.net application, it somehow shadowed escape key...
