I have considered ordering a replacement keyboard ($20 USD) but the shipping costs $30 USD. I might hold off until the Quartz64 model B is available and order them together.

I just received my new replacement keyboard.   Solved my problem that was similar to yours.   However, I struggled with the hinge modification some have suggested here.   Consequently, I've decided to just leave the lid open for the time being and avoid running into the same problem for the time being...

Good luck with your dilemma.
