    I've been noticing something over the last few weeks. I usually move my mouse or tap the space bar to wake up the computer then type in my password. Once in awhile the dots will scroll across the screen after I type the first letter. It doesn't do this all the time. Just once in awhile. I've found that I can fix the problem for a little while by turing off the keyboard then reconnecting. At some point, maybe a day or a few days later, it will happen again. I'm going to guess I've had the keyboard for at least 18 months and I haven't spilled anything on it.

    That is normal after waking the computer. I think it just takes a second to register back with Bluetooth. It is not a problem though.

    It did do it before though. I could just wake it up and start typing. I'll take a few extra seconds after I wake the computer to see if that changes anything.

    I replaced the keyboard last month and found that wasn't the problem. I might be wrong but I don't think this should happen after waking the computer. Anyone else have this problem?
