10.6.8 is a stated requirement:
System Requirements
  • Mac computer with Bluetooth wireless technology
  • Mac OS X v10.6.8 or later
  • Existing keyboard and mouse for initial setup
  • Two AA batteries (included)

Anyway, have you checked System Preferences > Keyboard yet for specific settings, maybe even the Keyboard Shortcuts list?
