Pressing "D" key while using Remote Deskop minimizes all windows

Every time I am using Remote Desktop and press the letter "d" not only does the "d" not appear where I am trying to type it, but it minimizes all the windows in the remote desktop session. Even more weird, it is only doing this on Server 2003 instances that I am remote desktoped into. I tried a Remote Desktop in a Windows XP workstation and this did not happen. Yes, I have tried restarting my laptop and this still does not fix the issue.

Your Windows key (the button with the windows logo on your keyboard) is stuck. Try pressing both of them a few times, and then try again.

Or, it could be the Windows key on the keyboard that's plugged into the physical server.

Are you logged in to the console session?
Have you tried logging in without using the console session? I have a very similar problem when I RDP to a server that's connected to my KVM. (Stupid KVM! :))

I have a laptop in a docking station that is connected to 2 monitors, so I keep the laptop closed and use an external keyboard. I opened up the laptop, pushed the Windows key a couple of times and the issue is no longer happening. Thanks.
