    My Magic Mouse works fine but I can't get my wireless keyboard to cooperate. It recognizes it, but doesn't give me a chance to enter a pass key. Any ideas?

    Mine gives me a blue screen of death on win7, I guess your situation is better than mine.

    Is this the old full-size BT keyboard or the new aluminum BT keyboard? The old one always had problems with Windows.

    It's the smaller aluminum wireless keyboard.

    you shouldn't need a passkey. I always pick the option "choose passkey for me" (something along those lines) for both the keyboard and magic mouse but both end up w/ the status "connected, no passkey". still works fine.

    I've successfully linked the aluminum BT keyboard to my MBP running Windows 7 via Boot Camp, so I know it can/should work. I remember having to type in the passkey that Windows assigned and I don't remember doing anything special to get it to connect and work properly.

    Maybe try using a different set of batteries?
