    iMac keeps looking for wireless keyboard!
    Hi all,
    As above, I'm absolutely sick to death of my iMac looking for a wireless keyboard when I'm actually using an apple wired keyboard. I can't sign in or do anything else. I've tried holding option command P and R before the grey screen comes up several times, and although this method that I saw on the web worked last time this happened, it won't work this time. I'd like some help before I go nutso pleeeeze.
    Pete.

    I take it you're talking about the native Bluetooth keyboard. Just go to Bluetooth preferences, select the keyboard and ask to forget this device.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    @Hoody:

    What Rod suggested should work. Just make sure you tell BT to forget the device and it will stop looking for it.

    Thanks all,
    I don't know why, but I left it alone until this morning, started it up and it was perfect. I'll get on it and do the disabling of bluetooth as mentioned.
    Pete.
