Having a big problem with the "windows" key

Technical Support
ok I play on a laptop and I have one "windows" key. its right below the "z" key.

Sometimes I'll hit it by mistake and it will minimize wow like its supposed to.

The big problem is it seems to lock out my computer totally!
All I can do is go up and down the start menu. I can click on nothing else, no other keys are responsive and it takes me maybe a good 2 minutes of mashing keys until I can get back into wow, nothing is responsive at all.

Besides disabling the key, what else can I do?

This is always the case, sometimes I can hit the windows key and then go back into wow in seconds but its the unresponsive part that really irks me.

Any thoughts? I play on a new Asus K73S laptop.
Raidbot,

If you find yourself hitting that key a lot then you may want to try playing the game from Fullscreen Windowed mode. You may see some performance loss in that mode, but you shouldn't lock up when hitting the Windows key.

You can enter that mode from the Video section of the game options in the main menu.
