If you hold it down for another 8 seconds will it switch back?
Make sure its not jammed. Give it a few rapid jabs or a blast with an air duster.
Even turn the keyboard upside down and slap the base, see what falls out. (not too hard)

I tried holding it down again and it didn't work. So I restarted the computer and all is now back to normal.

I also use a Fujitsu-Siemans Pc and I have noticed that if you move the mousewheel whilst holding down the shift key it sends the keyboard into stupidity mode.

Just thought it might help!
