    After I installed leopard, it seems like I get kernel panic whenever I activate my BT keyboard (the old apple one before the macbook inspired on). This is different from the search threads where people kenel panic when trying to turn off their BT keyboards. Mine happens when I turn it on! Therefore I haven't used my external keyboard since 10/26!!! Anyone experience the same thing?

    I doubt your problem has anything to do with bluetooth.

    I had problems installing Leopard.

    Was your install the type where user data is retained? Did you reinstall applications?

    I did an install over the previous system. I kept intact all of my applications, and user data.

    As a result I had problems with my Leopard install.

    What worked for me was an install and erase. First I copied off my user data.

    Then after the clean install I reinstalled all of my applications, and then brought my user data back.

    Now it's not prefect, but I can live with Leopard, and waiting for Apple to play Leopard catchup.

    I have this problem as well though it doesn't happen every time I turn off bluetooth, maybe one out of three times.
