    Every time Windows starts, it sees my apple BT keyboard but the keyboard doesn't work. I have to uninstall the keyboard, then let window's bluetooth program recognize it and reinstall it every time, its a pain in the ass.

    How do I go around this and get this thing working normal?

    My friend has the same problem, and I've been reading these forums regularly for the last 8 months and there doesn't seem to be any fix for it yet. I hope for your sake someone has found something that works.

    Yo, sometimes this happens to me as well. But I just turn the keyboard off, wait a second, turn it back on an a few seconds later it works fine. ;)

    I have the same problem - recycling power on the keyboard solves the problem. I've also let it sit for a couple minutes and its paired up on its own.

    I have a Belkin MacMini Flip (hooked up to my MacMini w/BootCamp and my work Toshiba laptop), so I've recently switched to the Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 for Mac - I'm happy with that as an alternative.

    No issues here...not sure what to recommend as you've already tried reinstalling the macintosh drivers...

    You shouldn't need to reinstall or turn off the keyboard, just hit the enter key and it will 'come to life' after a couple of seconds.

    I think you meant NTFS or FAT32. NTSC is the format used in broadcasting TV signals in the US.

    In my particular setup, my partitions are setup for NTFS and I use MacDrive 6 to allow for read/write access to the MacOS partition where I store my files.
