Two questions regarding strange odours and laptops

(1) My laptop's space bar is getting a bit squeaky, is there anything I can do about it (that won't further damage)? I type a lot so it's getting a bit bothersome. Plus I have a roommate whom I'm sure is tired of the type-type-squeaks. :P

(2) In one of my classes we have to sit beside assigned people for our assigned teams. This one guy in the team really needs something called deodarant. Sometimes the smell is mixed with strong cologne, sometimes it's just b.o., but it gives me a headache everytime I inhale it. Now, this guy's pretty nice and he's also a team member so I don't want to insult him or anything...but it's really driving me crazy. What I can do, beside get nose plugs or live with it for another 2 months? I moved a seat over today (so there was an empty seat between us), under the pretense I wanted to talk to my friend behind me, but will he then think I don't want to sit with the other team members because I hate them?
