Is there anything like a reset of the internal keyboard device that I can try doing instead of having to restart my MacBook completely?
The internal keyboard on my MacBook Pro just stops responding to key presses at a random moment (and stays like that). After restarting, it works again.
it happened 7-8 times already, every time in the middle of typing something. It also happened twice while I was typing this question.
Trackpad continues to work normally.
It happened while I had an external keyboard connected, as well. Actually, two of them, both Apple keyboards -- one wireless and the other USB. Both of them, and the internal keyboard, stopped working at that point. When I re-connected a keyboard, it continued working again (only the reconnected one).
