    When I first started using Apple Macs and I enjoyed using expose and the other functions that OS X provided that windows does not via the F Keys ie F3 etc and being on a windows machine and go to press the Key and it doesn't do anything and then realise I'm not on an apple mac, doh ! * Face Palm *

    Only other thing I've done is when I am trying to work on multiple laptops etc and have a USB Mouse connected to my laptop and other laptops near me and I try to do something on the other laptops and use my mouse and wonder why the mouse cursor on which ever other laptop is not moving and then about 10 seconds later I click and realise it's due to my own user error and that it's the mouse for my work laptop.

    Do you have two keyboards and mice or a KVM switch? When I used to have two machines (with KVM) I always seemed to be on the "wrong" one when I was trying to do something.

    Guilty, except I've moved my (very physical, as in it's in my hand!) mouse down to the bottom of my screen and expect it to appear on the top of the screen of the laptop I'm currently working on..

    I now put my smartphone to the left of my keyboard after several attempts at trying to use it as a mouse.
