I have Multiplicity installed on 6 computers. I use it in seamless mode. I sometimes use the mouse to move between screens (probably 90% of the time), and sometimes use a macro on a keypad that broadcasts across all of the screens.All of the computers are wired via ethernet cables to a common Netgear GS108 switch. The switch runs to the router over 5e and it is a 1Gbps fiber line.I cannot determine what is causing it, but multiple times during a play session the ALT key will be active on the secondary computers. It doesn't seem to be connected to the mouse moving to those screens because I have had it happen when the mouse has never left the main screen. But it is very disruptive to my gaming when I hit a hotkey on a computer and instead it activates ALT+Hotkey which is mapped to something entirely different. Even more fun, when I hit backspace, it brings up the CTRL-ALT-DELETE screen.Multiplicity if fantastic, I love it. But this "stuck" ALT key thing is very aggravating and interferes with my game play.
I have forwarded your report to the Stardock support team for their review and recommendations.
Please keep an eye on this thread for any updates.
We really do appreciate your feedback, thanks.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble.
Try making sure this is off:
Also, while rare, when it does happen, a depression of Ctrl + Alt on the Primary should get it out of a depressed state on the Secondary.

That option had been turned on.
Turned it off.
Problem still present last night with the option turned off.

If only I knew ahead of time that it had happened. It's sneaky and does it when I don't realize its nefarious deeds.
Thank you for the help clarifying.
