Certain keys on my laptop keyboard have begun to squeak when I depress them, none more so than the spacebar. It’s driving me nuts! It’s the kind of thing that would force me to go out and by another laptop if I wasn’t about to shell out $3,000 in taxes!

Does anyone know how to “oil” an iBook keyboard?
