    Hey everybody,
    I just installed Windows 8 using boot camp on my iMac. Everything works great except for the keyboard. I find that if I leave the computer for a few hours and come back, the keyboard no longer works. The computer still thinks its paired, but it cannot type. In order to fix this problem, I now uninstall the keyboard as a Bluetooth device, restart, and then re connect the keyboard. For some reason, the keyboard doesn't actually uninstall either, it just gets stuck saying it's uninstalling. Anyway I can fix this without restarting everytime?

    You will have to wait for updated bootcamp software. Windows 8 is not officially released so you might be waiting a while. Just a question. Why are you using Windows 8 when it is a glorified windows 7 with more bugs? You should be using os x :p :D:apple:

    I'm a big Windows user so I'm trying it out to see what's new/changed in the latest version that will be coming out. So far I've been really enjoying using the consumer preview of Windows 8. I'm looking forward to its official release.

    Yeah, it's looking like I'll just have to wait. I'm using Windows 8 because I figured boot camp would be an easy way to try it out, being that I could easily delete the partition if it sucked. And it's free :D

    How is it easier than running it in a VM?
