Apple has released a software update for its MacBook and MacBook Pro systems that addresses chronic freezing issues with the systems' keyboards.
When affected, some MacBook and MacBook Pro models are temporarily unable to provide keyboard input, in some cases lasting a minute or more. Users are sometimes compelled to relaunch Finder or the system itself to regain control of the system beyond the trackpad or external peripherals.
The patch requires Mac OS X 10.5.1 or later to install and is available either through the official Software Update utility or as a separate download (979KB) from Apple's support website.
