    This was posted in another thread and probably didn't get much exposure, so just seeing if anyone's got any ideas.

    i'd like to a setup with an Apple BT keyboard and mouse work on my mac (which has BT built-in) and my PC (which has a bluetooth adapter).

    Has anyone tried this out?

    I've yet to get a KVM switch, but should i be plugging the BT adapter on the PC to the KVM switch? so that the PC recognizes the BT keyboard and mouse only when i've switched over to the PC setup? Or should the BT still be plugged into the PC?

    Any recommendations for a "zen" looking KVM switch to go nicely with my Mac? : )

    your best bet is to just pair both mac and pc to same keyboard and disable bt on mac when you're not using or unplug usb receiver from pc when not using pc.

    much simpler (and cheaper) solution in my opinion.
