    My BT keyboard and mouse were acting up over the last couple of weeks and last week stopped working altogether. Thankfully the iMac (21.5" C2D) was under AppleCare and I took it in to get fixed.

    They replaced the BT logic board and after testing, I picked it up tonight and brought it home.

    Now, I can't get my keyboard or mouse to connect to it - cannot enter the system as I don't have a wired keyboard to input the password - I'm guessing the plist has been tied to the BT keyboard andmouse the engineer used?

    Is there anyway I can get this thing working tonight? Or do I have to wait to go to work tomorrow to "borrow" a wired USB keyboard?

    Missus is fuming - asking why I didn't take the keyboard and mouse in at the same time - yeah, guess I shoudl have, but they seem to work OK on my MBP...

    Cheers

    Resetting SMC doesn't work, and no way to reset PRAM as keyboard doesn't connect.
