    Hi All
    something has been perplexing me for some time. Every time i start up my mac (imac G5/Snow Leopard) i get a message saying 'wireless keyboard batteries low' I dont have a wireless keyboard though. I do have a wireless mouse but the messages don't correlate with when the mouse batteries are low, even more strangely when i look in the bluetooth connection tab at the top the wireless keyboard is there and so is how much power it has left. If i disconnect it it makes no difference and when i reboot the same warning comes up.
    any ideas?

    That is odd! Try this:

    Log into Mac OS X as you normally would.
    Go into System Preferences - Bluetooth pane.
    Do you see your phantom device there?
    If it is there, do any of the obvious methods work for removing it (right-clicking, control-clicking, pressing the delete or backspace keys on your keyboard with the offending entry selected)?
