Hi, I have 1 keyboard, 1 mouse, and two desktop computers to use with a 3-monitor setup. I would like to know the best way to use a triple monitor setup where I can click a button and switch back and forth between desktop A and desktop B for the single keyboard/mouse and the monitors. Consolidating files onto one machine is not an option.
Are there devices or hubs I could plug the keyboard/mouse/monitors and desktops into that can do this? Amazon links would be great.

I use an ancient MS Natural Keyboard, but the main thing that's relevant here is the key mechanism.
The Goog will show you models old and new
I recently took mine apart, cleaned the plastic parts with water, got it nice and clean (years of accumulated cookie crumbs, etc.)
The problem is - now the keys are kind of stiff. For example, if I strike them at a slight angle, they don't depress as smoothly as before.
The standard advice online is to clean a keyboard to prevent
sticky keys, but I have the opposite problem.
Is there some kind of lube/oil/spray I can use?

I've got a tower (AMD 3000+ with a gigabyte motherboard, 3/4ths of a gig of ram, etc.) that I'm trying to set up for a media center. The thing is, the first screen (where it's checking the ram) the keyboard works fine. I can go and edit my bios settings, save and exit, etc. However, on the next screen (where I have the option of booting from CD and such) keyboard input ceases to be. [more inside]
