Since I got the Magic Trackpad, every time I start up my iMac, it flashes "Low Battery" on the screen for the Trackpad, even though it is 100% with new batteries when I go into System Preferences.

Spoke to Apple about it, and they had me trash two files and then re-start again. It still happened. Then they told me to go to an Apple Store and swap out the Magic Trackpad. I did this. The "Low Battery" indicator still flashes on the screen upon startup. Otherwise, the iMac works fine. Any ideas?

I finally figured out that my "Keyboard" batteries were low, and I replaced them, and now the "Low Battery" for the Trackpad no longer flashes on the screen. However, when I re-connected the Keyboard after putting in the new batteries, it showed a flash on the screen that the "Trackpad" was now connected. Why is my iMac mistaking my Trackpad for my Keyboard?
QUOTE Thanks
