    I have the new thin Apple Keyboard (wired version) and sometimes I have the most odd thing happen to me. The first time I start iTunes after I start my computer I will hit the Play/Pause (F8) button on the keyboard and it will take iTunes up to 30 seconds to recognize this. As soon as it does though, it will work flawlessly until I shut down the computer.

    This is not a huge deal, and it doesn't really even bother me, I am just wondering if anybody knows why this happens. Any ideas?

    When the computer first boots to the home screen, it starts connecting itself, the bluetooth just lags for a bit. My tip is wait a little bit before using it, or keep the computer on sleep which in long term gives the computer's components less use and lasts longer. In short, in the beginning of booting up, bluetooth lags.
