    Ok, My roomate just got an apple keyboard to use with his blackbook. Its the new bluetooth aluminum one, without the numberpad.

    When connected to his computer, it acts like a mouse.... The "i" key clicks, i think it was 'G' moves the cursor, and will no type at all. The 'F' keys work, volume up, down, play pause.... those work. It will even eject, but will not type.

    The funny thing? It works fine with my aluminum macbook....

    Both are 10.5.6

    Suggestions?

    Try adding it as a keyboard, it sounds like it was setup as a mouse.

    He's a moron, under accessibility, he had "mouse keys" turned on. Turned it off, all better.
