    Is anyone else having issues with ESD on their keyboard? About once a week I’ll sit down at my desk and get a light shock when my hand get close to one of the screws on the case. The keyboard shuts down when this happens, but it comes back up with no apparent problems when I unplug and plug it back in. Just wondering if anyone else is having issues or if there’s a simple grounding fix. Thanks!

    Hmm. That’s interesting. Must be lots of static electricity there. Try putting a piece of wire between the usb connector to the computer and the plate.

    Happening to me too, I just managed to hork up my desktop pretty good via ESD through the ergodox infinity – fortunately the keyboard seems okay, and rebooting appears to have brought my desktop back.

    I’ll take the keyboard apart and add a ground wire some time soon.
