    To answer my own question...I'm seeing process 0 (swapper) as handling the keyboard interrupt...does this make sense?...Gerard4143

    Well I think I have the final answer...the interrupt is handled by the process thats current or by the process that has keyboard capture. This said...does anyone know why process 0 (swapper) would be processing the interrupt sometimes.....Gerard4143
