    So I just got my new MBP a few weeks back and purchased a wireless mighty mouse. Works wonderfully with OS X, but I can't seem to get it to connect in Windows. It says that it needs a passkey, anybody know where I would find such a thing?

    Mine will work in a Windows VM, but I have never tried it on a Windows Machine. According to the specs posted on Best Buy, it requires OS X, and does not list any windows compatibility.

    Try all zeros... Apple's knowledge base might have an article on this.

    I guess I should clarify.

    Windows is on my mac, installed with Bootcamp. If I try all zeros, how many should I try?

    I dont know if your running XP or Vista...
    however I am running Vista, and when it prompt for what kind of security (or whatever it is) I choose the option "use the manufacturer default key" and it should automatically accept and pair.

    or like these guys said, choose all zero's (Which should be 4) that should work as well.

    I think they keyboard uses a 6 digit passkey, but I can't remember for sure.

    Try 4, 6, 8...

    I think for my apple wireless I used 0000, and only because it actually had buttons, other then a click when pairing... lol
