    Wireless Keyboardwill not connect to mini??
    Hi All,

    Shut my mini down last night, never shut the keyboard off, turned mini on today after I came home from work, and again, my keyboard will not connect. It is an Apple wireless keyboard, batteries are 100%.

    Any ideas??


    2011 Mac Mini, OSX 10.6.7, 500GB, 4GB Ram.
    Thanks,

    Will

    Just to get it straight. Turning the Keyboard off and then back on again doesn't cause it to reconnect?

    If so, may double check that Bluetooth hasn't been inadvertently turned off in the Mac Mini settings.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Correct. Powering off, then on will not reconnect it. I will check BT settings.

    UPDATE: Left the batteries out for a half hour, shut off blue tooth in settings, turned blue tooth back on, put batteries back in, reconnected on its own??

    Strange, did the same thing two days ago...
    Thanks,

    That is strange. I'll remember it if I run into problems with my Mini and wireless keyboard.
    Glad things are working now.

    I don't know that it matters. FWIW I leave my Mini on all the time; I just turn off Keyboard, Trackpad and Monitor.
