weird – Apple wireless keyboard problems

I’m having weird – Apple wireless keyboard problems (recently). 
As if some of the modifier keys are stuck (pressed)…  
While I’m typing some time it’s acting up.
Say, I typed “a” some time it shows up “A”, as if shift is pressed.
When I click on something it shows up context menu, as if control is pressed.
Under the described scenario, naturally one will think this is time for new keyboard. So I thought too and bought a new Apple wireless keyboard.
But the problem remains.
And I’ve having same problem with 2 macs, one MacPro that I use at home as well as the iMac that I’m using at work.
Does anyone facing this same problem?
What this problem could be?
Some wrong settings (since, I sync both macs over MobileMe)?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

    Check your System Preferences.
    First, check Keyboard, Keyboard and press the Modifier Keys button. Make sure that looks right.
    Then check Universal Access, Keyboard. This is where I think your problem is. Look at the options there. And Mouse too. I’ll bet you the problem is there.

    Wireless Keyboard,and Mouse keep loosing connection. The Bluetooth in System Preferences has a Red light,but is showing Green on both Keyboard,and Mouse.
    At the top under the icon of the Bluetooth it says ON? I make sure that the batteries are well charged up all the time. It also says show Bluetooth in the side menu bar,but there is none there Gary.
