    I recently purchased an apple blue-tooth wireless keyboard and im already faced with a pretty annoying problem. My entire top row of function keys do not do what they are supposed to do. For example, my F10, F11, and F12 buttons should control my volume but instead my F12 brings out my dashboard, F11 pulls all of my windows out to the side, and my F10 gathers the windows of the application being used. And this goes for all of my top row function keys, they all do not do the things that they are supposed to do.

    I looked around the web already looking for a solution.
    I tried disconnecting and reconnecting my keyboard.
    Turned off my mousekeys
    Tried setting them as standard function keys
    ...but to no avail.

    I have a Mac version 10.5.8 ive been taking good care of for the past 3 years, if this information helps.

    If anyone could help, that would be great. Thanks alot.

    Did you install the software update needed for that keyboard? You should see it when you run Software Update or get it from Apple:
