    I have had the same problem with my Macbook Air loosing connection with the Apple BT keyboard, ever since upgrading to Lion. Sometimes simply leaving the computer long enough for it to go to sleep results in loss of the connection. Sometimes it will return spontaneously, other times I must reconnect.

    Today for the 1st time, I had to remove the keyboard from the BT list and re-add it. It took a while to get around to trying that and I was more than a little frustrated!

    I NEVER had this problem under Snow Leopard.

    I'm having this problem right now as well. It worked great, then one day I paired it with my iPod touch to try it out. Now it connects and disconnects from the computer. The iPod is not in range.

    Did you ever un-pair it from the iPod Touch?

    Yes. I do know to do that. I'm set up the way I should be, but it connects and disconnects often.

    No problems here. I bought my wireless keyboard in July 2012. I'm running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5, on a late 2011 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5.

    I ditched my apple bt keyboard and went with the Logitech solar powered one. Now more issues. Bonus, no more batteries...
