I have this wireless keyboard because my wife doesn't use it on her intel iMac. It is one of those skinny little ones without the numberpad. Anyway if I fiddle with it enough the laptop catches a glimpse of it and then loses it and never offers up the syncing numbers to keep them in communication.

So what is going on here? Is there a patch or something to allow this new whizbang keyboard to hook up with this old timer PB?

A curious person wants to know!

Keyboard and mouse software installed from the installation CD? If so what does Apple System profiler say? Paired whilst using the trackpad or a wired keyboard?

I've been using the laptop's built in Keyboard and a wireless mouse while initiating the wireless keyboard. My son just showed up with his same wireless keyboard and the laptop would sync with it. I took mine into the Apple store earlier this evening and it synced up with one of their demo units. I have noticed that the keyboard green light, when powered up, stays on for a little bit then goes out and does not flash looking to pair up. It is odd that it behaves differently like that, any ideas??
