    I have an Apple BT keyboard that I've used a long time with my MacPro. Recently, I switched over to a wired keyboard and plugged it into the USB hub on my 30" ACD. Now I want to use the BT keyboard with my 15" MBP which sits on my desk a few feet from the MacPro. I can't seem to keep the BT keyboard paired with the laptop. How do I do this? Every time I pair it, when I move the laptop and lose the BT keyboard connection it won't pair again when I bring it back within range but it always seems to pair back up with the MacPro.

    Any thoughts on how to un-pair the keyboard with the MP and keep it paired with the MBP?

    Delete the pairing record from Bluetooth preferences on the Mac Pro. Remove the batteries from the keyboard, then hold the power button for 10-20 seconds. Reinstall the batteries and power it back on, then try to pair it with your portable.
