Battlestation: Multiple desktops and monitors but 1 keyboard and 1 mouse

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.

Wake up Chrome... without the mouse

Win7/Chrome users: Click the "Google Chrome" button on your taskbar to minimize the browser (assuming it's already open). Then click it again to make it reappear. From this state, how do I then get Chrome to accept keyboard shortcuts (e.g. Ctrl-T for a new tab) without clicking the browser first?

Mouse-free Shortcut No Longer Works on Mac

Before my hard drive died and I had to reinstall Tiger, I used to be able to trigger dialogue box buttons (e.g. "Yes" or "No") on my mac by typing the first letter of the option I wanted to choose (e.g. "n"). It doesn't work anymore and I have to navigate with the mouse and click on things. How can I activate this feature?
