Keyboard Shortcut issue?
On my computer here at work, whenever I press the Ctrl key twice in rapid succession, my NumLock/CapsLock/ScrollLock lights begin flashing and my keyboard is non-responsive except for the Escape key (which stops the flashing). It doesn't matter if it's the left or right Ctrl key (or a combination.) This is very annoying as I often will trigger this combo while I'm working. This is an IBM keyboard and an IBM ThinkCentre computer. My google-fu is failing me. Anyone know what this might be?
Sounds like the preamble to programming the keyboard.

Yea, more like that but I have some help I guess.
Is the box running Linux/Unix ?

Tracked it down... I'm hooked up to an Avocent KVM and Ctrl Ctrl is a hotkey for that thing. How obnoxious.
I knew it !!

You didn't know you were hooked to a KVM?
Or if you did know about the KVM, you didn't know its hot-key sequence?
