    I have just got a new Apple Bluetooth keyboard and I love it, fantastic machine.

    BUT...

    When I log in it takes a minute or two for me to be able to use the keyboard. That means I cant enter my password. So my mac has to sit there while I just look at it blankly!

    try pressing a key(s) to make the connection faster, or you can try turn on the keyboard first then your computer...that might help...

    I use the Apple BT keyboard as well... I have the exact same problem. I have spoken to other people with the same issue. It happens with both my PB and my PM in my sig.

    On a startup, it appears that the BT keyboard takes a little while to connect. I haven't been able to figure out why. I usually just give a 10 second pause before I try to type. 9 / 10 times the keyboard is ready to go.

    I never have that problem because I never actually turn off the computer. I just log out of my account when I'm done so the BT is always connected.

    I think he meant you have to sleep in the same bed as it. And man, how many free computers do you think you're going to get? :D

    on my powerbook, if I enable the option "allow bluetooth devices to wake this computer" I have found that the keyboard is always "on" and I never have to wait for the bluetooth pairing before I can type.
