Hi all and a Very Happy New Year to All!!

How can I disable the keyboard Eject button as I keep pressing up against it lightly when typing and the tray ejects and it's really annoying... I think before you had to press it hard or for a sustained time to get the CD/DVD slot/tray to open.... now... the slightest tip and it will open.

Is there any work around this...?

Any suggestions most welcome.

Easiest way is probably to remap that key to do something else using an application called Karabiner:

The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.
