I have a wireless Apple keyboard and it works fine on mac OSX. When Im on Bootcamp however running Windows XP Professional, it doesn't work properly. When I push the cap locks key, it disconnects the keyboard and the it doesn't matter how many times I press the caps locks button, it just won't go off and the light stays on. So to fix it, I have to turn off the keyboard, turn it back on and quickly hit the caps lock key to get it go off and then turn it off and back on again and it's back to normal.

Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know any fix for it?

Cheers guys!

Have you installed the drivers for Boot Camp? Perhaps a Bluetooth pairing is needed.

Hi! Thanks for the reply. I have installed the drivers off the CD for Boot Camp and have 10.5.2 running. I have a wireless ouse as well and both keyboard and mouse are paired with XP. They don't have a passkey though.

Any ideas?

I had the same problem, and simply could not find a cure. I just connect my wired Mac keyboard and mouse when I'm in Windows.

Happy to be back to a Mac

Cool ok! Thanks for the reply! I've found out that this is a fault with Apple's drivers and not the keyboard. Lots of people have had this problem which is a shame really, but I'm sure there will be a fix soon!
