    I just got a new Core i3 iMac which came with the aluminum bluetooth keyboard. I have Boot Camp installed, so I want to be able to use the boot selection by holding the Option key at startup. This does not work with the aluminum keyboard. However, I found that the older bluetooth (plastic) keyboard, and a 3rd party bluetooth keyboard both work. Is there a defect in my new aluminum keyboard, or is this a known issue?

    Yea...I attempted doing that as well with no response, But I figured it was normal since I assumed that the Bluetooth was not operational during boot up. Interesting to hear that it has worked for you with other BT Keyboards though. My scenario is a 15" MBP & an external 23" ACD so I'm not quite sure if that has something to do with it as opposed to attempting with an iMac
