    Anyone losing keyboard connection every minute after X.5.5 update on MBP? This is driving me nuts and does not look like a hardware issue.

    Searching led to me older issues on this, yet sorry of there is a thread already and I did not find it.

    10.5.7 Issues with BT Too

    I've got a late 2008 unibody. I'm using a BT Apple Mighty Mouse and BT Apple Keyboard. I probably lose the BT connection about four or five times a day, and wake-up from sleep sometimes fails to connect the MBP to these two devices.

    I've re-paired the devices several times. The batteries are new or fresh.

    One thing I've noticed is that Time Machine is active many of the times I lose BT to the keyboard and mouse. Coincidence?

    Unless anyone has some ideas I guess it is Genius Bar Time. I know BT is flakey on almost everything I've every owned that has it. Nature of the beast?

    I've got an old Core Duo Macbook and have the same issue. I went so far as to buy a USB bluetooth dongle as a replacement (cheaper than a wired keyboard). I haven't had an issue using the dongle, although I need to go through the entire 'setup a new device' every time I want to use my Apple bluetooth keyboard.

    Not ideal, but better than it dropping mysteriously every 20-30 minutes of use.
