    Deleted because I realized that this keyboard won't work with iOS. But people still have this problem with newer keyboards.

    When it comes to issues like this, I usually go to the Apple Store and have one of the floor people see if they can troubleshoot even without an appt. And almost always they get the issue solved. Are you near an Apple Store?

    That keyboard is not supported by iOS. Of Apple's, only the mid-2007 aluminum ones and newer are.

    No, my model is supported: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4112
    All Bluetooth keyboards should be equal anyway, right?

    Yes, I am. Though it's going to be annoying to go there. It seems like a really obscure bug that Apple hasn't bothered to fix since it's been there for a long time. I doubt that they're going to be able to figure it out within a reasonable amount of time, but I'll give it a shot once I can. I am confident that this is a bug that just has to be fixed, but there has to be a workaround because it works for some.

    WHAT? How the heck did I read that 6 times to be sure and not see that? Well, that sucks.

    It does suck. Those keyboards are really nice. If you jailbreak, you can use the Bluetooth Keyboard application in Cydia to connect it. It uses the BTstack instead of iOS' Bluetooth stack.
