I’m using an iMac running under OS X 10.9.4.

I tried Canadian English, British, and US keyboards and with each the TAB key works and the ESC key does not. 

My keyboard is about 4 years old! I’m not aware of any problems with it. Vut

> Try to type something that gives rise to a dialog box; e.g. Ctl+Power Key should bring up a Shut Down dialog box (If you don't have a Power Key Ctl+Eject Key should do it). Pressing Esc should be the same as clicking on Cancel, it should cancel the dialog box.

I tried the above. The Shut Down dialog came up and pressing ESC had no effect, it did not cancel the alert. I had to click CANCEL to avoid the shut down. I checked twice.

So ….. it appears that YOU have discovered that the ESC key on my keyboard is NOT functioning. 

Next you’ll be discovering whether I take milk, beer, or wine before going to sleep.

Great Great sleuthing Herb!
