    Hello everyone,
    Today i tried the final fantasy beta on my ps4 and i decided to play using my wireless apple keyboard.
    After figuring out how to connect the keyboard to the ps4 i played a bit and my mac went in sleep mode.
    After waking it up it brings me to the login screen but my keyboard won't connect back to the mac (i disconnected it from the ps4 and even deleted it from the bluetooth devices) but nothing. It seems like the mac can only see the keyboard after i logged in.
    I can use my mouse since it's USB but there isn't even a virtual keyboard so now my mac is a brick until i find an USB keyboard

    if you have other solutions please tell me.

    Thanks and sorry if it's the wrong section.

    (Using imac with mavericks)

    try turning the keyboard off and back on, it should go into pairing mode, and hopefully the mac will pick it back up.

    if that doesn't work, turn off the mac (hold the power button for a couple seconds)
    then boot the mac with the keyboard in paring mode.

    Tried both, nothing happens.
    Any other suggestions?
