    G5 imac wireless keyboard/mouse stopped working! USB keyboard no help.
    Please weigh in with some ideas, guys!

    My mom's G5 imac has a wireless keyboard & mouse, but she uses a USB mouse to save batteries.

    All of a sudden, her keyboard will not interface with her imac, despite fresh batteries. When she powers up, the login window appears, but she cannot enter a PW.

    She plugged in a USB keyboard, and it will not work either. She cannot even start up in safe mode using the USB keyboard. Sounds weird to me.

    Any ideas?

    Does a P-Ram reset work with the USB keyboard? Holding down APPLE, Option ,P + R when you turn on the imac? I assumed you tried other USB Ports on the back as well.
