restore tab & spacebar keys in logout window
If you did a clean install of Lion at any point you might have noticed that the spacebar won’t toggle the checkbox and tab won’t cycle through the options in the Logout window.
To resolve this, open Terminal.app (Applications > Utilities > Terminal.app) and copy/paste this command
sudo defaults write NSGlobalDomain AppleKeyboardUIMode -int 3
Press ‘return’ and type in your Admin password. Restart your computer and your tab and spacebar keys should be back to normal!

Phil ….you are a star. Your uninstall for mackeeper is fantastic. I regret not finding your site before buying that pile of crap. My Mac now works like brand new. It’s the app store or nothing for me from now on! Happily donated to keep you going. The world needs people like you. Once again many thanks for your solutions…keep up the good work!
