    Hi all. Here's my problem.

    When my Mac logs out of my account, Mac OS likes to keep asking me what kind of keyboard I have. I was wondering if anyone knew how to stop this. This doesn't happen on reboot or at any other time.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions that you guys might have.

    What type of keyboard is it? Wired or wireless?

    I have the same problem, which is quite annoying.

    The problem is that I'm using an Intel iMac, with a Microsoft wireless keyboard -- unfortunately Microsoft's Intellitype software does not run at all on Intel architecture, even under Rosetta, so the drivers are not installed.

    Bogus.

    Wired keyboard. A MacAlly iKeySlim.

    Funny thing is the OS detects it properly; it reads it as a MacAlly iKeySlim in System Profiler.

    But it likes to forget when I log out ... ?

    Ah, Apple released a keyboard update. Hope it works.

    Do you have a KVM between your Mac and your Keyboard?
