    I'm running Vista Premium on my aluminum iMac. Everything is fine but bluetooth works so much better under OS X than Windows. When I boot into OS X my wireless bluetooth mouse and keyboard can be used immediately and the iMac can be awaken from sleep by either pressing the mouse or any key on the keyboard. With Vista it takes about 30 seconds for the wireless mouse and keyboard to pair and neither the mouse or keyboard can be used to wake the iMac. Is anyone else having better luck with bluetooth in Windows than me?

    Be thankful it's working at all. I recently installed the update to Boot Camp (2.1), it not only killed my iSight, it also took out Blue Tooth! That was with XP SP2 not Vista though.

    might be obvious buy

    Just checking the basics so don't be offended.

    You have set the receiving machine to receive haven't you. From bluetooth icon in taskbar.
    I know it is obvious but sometimes even the best forget the basics!!!!
