Hi, I have a problem.
I used to type on my MBP with a regular-non new model-white-full-size bluetooth keyboard. A few days ago, it said that the battery was low. Now, I put a new set (rechhargeables) in it, and it won't turn on! I've checked the +/- orientation, but it's right. Am I misising something?
The computer Bluetooth seems to work well. When I try to turn it to on, the light next to the switch doesn't work, and neither do the light on the Caps Lock key. How could it die?

The set is brand new, and it has charged the whole night, so it should be ok. Anyway, as I'm typing this, there's another set charging.

Well, I've tried another set, and it doesn't work either. The first set powered my Nikon strobe actually very fast.

Does it just mean that my keyboard has plainly died? Just because the battery has run dead? Wtf? When I pay 60€ for a keyboard, I expect it to outlast any computer!
Is there anything like a bluetooth device stops working after a few days without batteries? :rolleyes:

Nevermind. It works again... I just took the batteries out (for the 10th time) and it works now... go figure.
