    Got a dumb question about a wireless keyboard
    I got a new wireless keyboard to pair with my iPad and it worked flawlessly. The problem came when I tried to turn it off. There is no indicator saying it's off. Does it just time itself out and I shouldn't worry about it??

    I just got one too. Hold the power button in for a few seconds until the green light goes out, you'll know for sure if its off if you try to type something.

    If this is the Apple Wireless keyboard, you'd be fine by just leaving the keyboard alone, the keyboard essentially turns itself off to conserve power. You would only need to really turn it off if you were going to put it away for a long period of time..

    Thanks Razor, that's what I suspected. I appreciate you confirming it for me

    Wolf, I did read the Apple manual twice and couldn't find my answer spelled out anywhere. I may have missed it and I saw stuff pertaining to turning the Apple keyboard on, but not anything about turning it off.
