    Problem with MacBook Pro & Bluetooth Keyboard
    Hi there,

    I've had a MacBook for about 7 months now (I finally switched over from PC!). I've got it hooked up to a 20" Apple display with a corded Apple "Mighty" mouse & a Bluetooth keyboard. Up until today, the keyboard works flawlessly.

    Today, I decided I neede a bigger screen on the notebook & went out & bought the 17" MacBook Pro. Unfortunately, the keyboard will NOT work. The notebook can't find it. I know there's NOTHING wrong with the keyboard because I turn the old MacBook back on and it immediately finds the keyboard & it works perfectly.

    Any ideas what's going on? I've been "Googling" and this seems to be an issue, but I haven't really found a solution yet. I downloaded & installed the most recent updates, but again, nothing.

    Any ideas???

    Thanks in advance!

    make sure you click on the bluetooth symbol in osx (top right) and click discoverable

    make sure batteries are in the right way round etc...

    should find it

    Make sure you have fresh batteries in it. Apple rates it at 6 months on a set of batteries with average use.
