Did any software come with the keyboard? (Mac software) You need to make adjustments for the wait time or repeat time when pressing the keys. You can try going to System Preferences, Keyboard tab, and adjust the sliders. If that doesn't help, return the keyboard and buy a wireless keyboard that is compatible with your Mac.

Have a read of this which states no drivers for Mac:-


Microsoft Sculpt keyboard/mouse drivers?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
