Apple Keyboard

by Grouchofish / February 17, 2014 8:16 AM PST

I'm running Leopard on a G5 Macpro and my Apple keyboard (model A1234) keys stopped working. The USB ports work but cannot type anything. Looking to replace it but see that the current keyboards need 10.6 to run. Saw a post online that claimed the keyboard will work but that the function keys won't (which I don't use anyway) Is this correct?

Thanks for your response. Found that the model MB110LL/A will work as well and plenty on ebay.
It's the model MB110LL/B that needs as least 10.6 so any model prior should work fine.
Currently using my mini Apple keyboard. The one without the number pad which I don't like as much.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
