    This may seem like a ridiculous question, but given all the reported issues with bluetooth mice and gaming, is it possible to have multiple mice and multiple keyboards attached to one Mac, and functional at the same time?

    The idea would be to have a wired keyboard, a wired mouse, a bluetooth keyboard and a bluetooth mouse all ideally controlling the one cursor...

    Why you ask? I prefer the convenience of wireless when I am casually using the computer, and I play games.

    Well, I have a wireless USB mouse attached to my PB, and then an Apple keyboard with an Apple mouse plugged into it, hooked to my iMac. Now sometimes, I plug in the Keyboard+Mouse into the PB and thus, I have two mice and two keyboards. Both fully functional. This is a weird post though...Why are you wanting to know this?

    My guess is he wants wants to have wireless and wired at the same time. I personly dont find to to stand. on my PC I have a PS2 keyboard plug in and my wireless keyboard plug in at all times. I really use the wired one. it just sits on top of the tower plug in and unused most of the time. It is useful when the wireless keyboard bats become week or starts acting up. You always have a more rebilbe thing to fall back on. When I am at home there are normally 2 mice plug into the home PC as well. One being my familys mouse and the other being my mouse since I like it better than the home one. and for the record at one time that computer had 3 mice and 2 keyboard plug into it at the same time and it was working just fan taking date from any of them
