Mac keyboard caps-lock delay

I was running the latest firmware on an Apple 2007 Aluminum Wireless Keyboard, and MacBook Pro Keyboard, but the issue still persisted. However, oddly this fixed it:

  1. Open System Preferences
  2. Click Keyboard
  3. Click Modifier Keys…
  4. Select your keyboard from the Select keyboard: list.
  5. Set the Caps Lock Key: to No Action.
  6. Press OK.
  7. Ensure your Caps Lock no longer works on your keyboard.
  8. Click Modifier Keys… again.
  9. Set the Caps Lock Key: to Caps Lock.
  10. Press OK.

Now, the Caps Lock key works instantly for that keyboard. Repeat as-needed for each keyboard you own.
