    My random question of the day . . .

    (Hypothetical Question):
    If an iMac is password protected (needs password to use computer when booting up or waking up from sleep mode), and the bluetooth keyboard is completely dead - not pairing at all: Is there a way to enter the password using mouse and/or touchpad only?

    . . . . guess I should have an "emergency backup wired keyboard" huh? Too bad a "right-click" in the password box doesn't give you an option for an on-screen keyboard. . . . lion 10.7.3 ??? :D

    that would be a good add, maybe a general add to anything on the right click menu, it can work as a security setting when you don't want to type your passwords in. :D
