I can no longer quit, save or use any other actions that require the command key to be pressed. My command key will only toggle the Auto-Select.
Not sure when or how this started happening. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Have you tried resetting you preferences?
This happens when the Move tool is selected, and Auto select is unchecked. It's the smart way to work as Auto Select is a PITA
I have tried this Chuck and it still doenst work. everytime i press ctrl it turns it back on and off again. for instance i have selected a layer then want to resize it. Crtl + T....but i cant do it as it keeps turning off the autoselect. im really confused as to why this is even possible as Ctrl is used so much for short cut keys?
Anybody got an update on this? It is costing me sooo much wasted time. Pressing ctrl activates "auto-select' and over rides any ability to use ctrol short cuts. I cant even Ctrl + S. Doesnt matter if i reset preferences, uncheck 'auto-select' and restart. as soon as press ctrl it activates it and stops me being able to use shorts cuts. Do you konw how many short cuts start with ctrl?!?!?!
I've been using Photoshop since the beta version (1992?). I never had problems with Command/Ctrl key switching to the Move tool until this past month -- maybe latest update? It's disrupting to the work flow.
As others have said, many people work with a finger on Command, ready to Undo or Save. Now nearly everytime I click Command+Z, I'm suddenly using the Move tool and messing up my picture.
Adobe please give us a way to DISABLE COMMAND/CTRL other than its standard use with other keys.
there has been many posts on this, so for those who have not yet solved it here is the answer!
it is to do with the default language. i had mine set to Maori, but as soon as i chnaged it back to English it worked.
