    List things not working and any fixes

    Keyboard backlight not working
    Short battery life (apple says it doesnt have the same power saving features as that on the mac side)
    Random reboot and locks ( can get it to crash alot when touching the brightness slider)
    Optical light on from windows install. (But can be turned off)
    Cannot emulate right mouse button clicks.
    Screen brightness starts off at full, but one notch down and drops brightness to 60% and lowers nicly from there. so big jump from full brightness to next brightness setting.

    I think that it would help to list your machine type, along with the problems, since many of the problems are probably related to drivers.

    Only in the MacBook Pro though it would seem. The mighty Mouse works perfectly with my iMac.

    The right mouse click command doesnt work in windows? Or at least I couldnt get it to work.

    Hmm never noticed the time. I'll check mine

    well another alternative for right click...bit of a hassle really but just incase you keep forgettin to get that lil program is "shift+f10" that is basically a keyboard shortcut for right click wherever your mouse is.

    Brightness control... I just click it (pretending to slide it) and the iMac restarts itself... pretty annoying stuff, my eyes burn...

    had this problem with Mac Mini and iMac 20"

    Also does it on 2 Mac Keyboards under windows.

    After a period of time, its at random and can be even when your typing, the keyboard and mouse goes off(my mouse plugged in keyboard) then the mouse comes back on and the keyboard has caps lock on Solid, wont turn off or anything! only way to get keyboard functioning again is unplug it from usb and plug back in!

    Odd one and i dnt know why... :mad:

    on the iMac i get BSOD - 0x0000007e when trying to restart

    I noticed with the original boot camp the video card was reported as 128MB but with boot camp 1.0.2 it now sees it as 256MB! Not sure if it made any difference in performance or if it was just cosmetic.
