Default Sliding Keyboard

I am suffering from my keyboard moving around while playing. It really causes me to mess up songs. Has anyone had this happen to them?

My keyboard is laying on this crap Ikea flattop of a desk...what are some things that I could do to prevent this ?

just find something to put at the back of your computer, for example, my 2 monitors help provide 2 points of contact to stop my keyboard.

I knew I'd get some silly answers from you guys. But thank you Prawn for the excellent suggestion. I'll be purchasing one today if I have time. I didn't want to alter my desk in any way - the non stick mat allows that.

I personally use an old hole punch between my computer monitor base and my keyboard to sort of keep my keyboard in place/prevent moving around. Works pretty well. A lot of slip from keyboard I find usually comes from the keyboard not being propped up against anything.
