Sometimes one of my keys seems to stick and even though I click a button once the computer gets the keystroke twice (for example sometimes ctrl+v will paste 2 copies). I've run into this issue a few times in campaign -- I'd try to end turn on one character when there is another character right after, and either because of my keyboard, the driver interpreting my keystrokes, or the game itself, the spacebar was interpreted as being pressed twice. This ended both characters' turn.

A simple counter to this sort of issue would be to institute a 1 second delay on ending your turn in combat. So if you press spacebar twice, it will only end one character's turn, unless you wait a whole second between the keystrokes. The only time this would negatively impact you would be if you actually wanted to rapidly skip through a character's turn, but that's fairly uncommon, and it would be a minor inconvenience at just one second.

I think if you end the turn of the last person of the chained characters it ends it for all of them.

But yes whatever the issue is its very annoying. Happens to me all the time.

Im confused. Because your spacebar is sticky you want them to include a second delay? I mean, I sometimes do it by accident as well and a 'you still have actrions; are you sure you want to end your turn' could work but im not sure how easy that is to implement...

As I've been playing onwards I think you are correct. What happens is this. You have 3 characters in a row, lets say Will, Gale, Astarion. They appear in that order on the top left. Wyll goes first. You finish his turn and hit spacebar to end. For whatever reason the internal game order is Wyll > Astarion > Gale, despite what you see at the top left. So with Wyll done it jumps to Astarion. Either because I notice this or just because I want Gale to do something first, I select Gale and act, then hit space, and it entirely skips Astarion.

I agree a "you have actions remaining" prompt would be good, ideally with the ability to filter by character whether to show this for bonus actions, regular actions, both, or neither.
