    I'm trying to pair my wireless keyboard that came with my iMac 21.5" with my MBP 17". But for some reason its not even coming up in the bluetooth browse.

    I have turned the on button on & off several times. Its not even blinking indicating it can't pair. I have taken the batteries out and reloaded to reset, still no luck.

    Seems that the wireless keyboards that are bundled with the new iMacs are specifically paired. Is there a way to "un-pair" them?

    The wireless mouse that came with my iMac is paired fine with no problems to my MBP. Just can't get the wireless keyboard to work.

    Any ideas/suggestions?

    Good question. I guess the question is, once a wireless keyboard is paired, how do you induce it to go into search mode for re-pairing with a different computer.... Anyone know?
