    Anyone seeing very poor battery life with the wireless BT KB? The one that has no number pad.

    I remember when the batteries lasted months, now they last days! I believe the change occurred with my upgrade to Snow Leopard, but I am not certain.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I have that same keyboard, and the battery life didn't seem to change when I upgraded to Snow Leopard, are you using a different type of batteries?

    I have noticed the same thing Steve. I just replaced my batteries and now its saying that they are needing replacing. Don't know why they would be draining so fast
    I use Duracell regular batteries.

    Battery life for my BT wireless keyboard has remained the same since I upgraded to Snow Leopard.

    I'm having the same issue. The only notable difference to my setup is that I bought a Mighty Mouse. For some reason, my last three sets of batteries lasted only a couple of weeks, as compared to several months not long ago.

    Perhaps a 10.6.2 issue?
