MacBook Pro keyboard trouble

I have a relatively new powerbook (since ~May) that is giving me some difficulty.
I'll be in the middle of doing something and all of a sudden the keyboard will lock up.
Regular typing ceases to work and none of the function keys do anything either, although
using the mouse and drop -down menus does continue to work properly.

The problem is really annoying because it happens every couple of minutes. The keyboard
eventually starts working again after pressing some keys on the keyboard repeatedly.

Any ideas what is causing it to lock up?

well, since it's so new, you can go to an apple care center and have it serviced for free if it's under warranty.

could just be a bad connector or something entirely different.
sometimes they're lemons until you get the right one.
Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
