10.4: Avoid the 10.4.9 Eject key activation delay
Authored by: starwxrwx on Mar 21, '07 07:30:11AM

I also thought my keyboard was wearing out - or more specifically the batteries (Apple wireless keyboard). There was no low battery warning and the rest of the keys worked fine - now I know why! I have a Powermac g5.

I HAVE to press and hold the eject key in order to get the CD/DVD to eject. One press doesn't do anything - I find it extremely irritating, especially since even the 'instant eject' never ejects instantly - the disc always spins up and then down and then ejects.

On a related note - is there a way to force open the drive? There is no little force open hole on the drive, and if one software way doesn't work, none seem to! (eject button, disk utility, right-clicking...)

One way to force an eject is to hold down the mouse button during reboot.
