Keyboard issues

I play a videogame called Spore, and there is an assymetry feature in the creator, it requires me to hold A. I want to know how to disable my computer freezing the mouse when keys are held down.

Welcome to Seven Forums
You can go to control panel >keyboard and adjust the speed of the delay, I don't see a place to disable it completely.
If I remember correctly in XP you would get a sticky key error and could make changes then but in Seven it looks as if you could adjust the speed in which it allows you to hold down a key, now I don't know how this is going to effect the rest of your game play but you might want to give it a try.

Perhaps someone else may have a better ideal
