I tested the keyboard with my MacBook Pro - it works just fine. Can I use my Macbook Pro keyboard in some way? Hi everyone -- Just wanted to confirm that these instructions actually do work. I have to hard reboot the system - where the system finally tries to repair with a keyboard and after I power cycle the keyboard, the system sees it and asks me to enter a passphrase that it displays to complete the pairing.
Other than go out and buy a usb kb. It will also on occasion lose it's connection while I'm actively using it. So I can't get into the system.

I was able to solve this problem by turning the computer over and starting hitting some areas. I absolutely cannot locate my Apple bluetooth keyboard. When you get into that mode without anything connected to the mac he asks you to turn on the keyboard and mouse before continuing. Do I need to rename it through my mac so that I can find it or am I doing something wrong?? I will be glad to assist you with this. Also tried holding down the caps key.
If I choose to restart my computer instead, the bluetooth keyboard won't work at the login screen. Everything worked good until I logged out. Can I make it beep? I am interested to see if the driver is showing as yellow! Can't believe it actually worked! Then I fiddle on the keyboard until it pairs usually a few more seconds. Other than throwing the keyboard out of the window and returning to a conventional wired solution, if anyone has any good idea let me know. I'm rather annoyed since it's always been my keyboard!

Has worked like a charm until this Bluetooth problem appeared.

Some have firmware support to ask you to pair the keyboard before boot time, others require you to reboot the device with no physical keyboard connected. I got it a while ago and remember that a friend of mine had used it with his macbook once just to try it out. I plugged in an external keyboard not Apple , and that also did not work. Had to set up both again. I also love a clean workspace and a wireless keyboard could remove yet another wire from my desk.
Oct 12, 2008 I have an Apple bluetooth keyboard for my macbook pro. I tried 3-5 times and after that the tablet wants me to type the number code of the bluetooth keyboard on the screen keyboard.
