I have an Mac mini (i5) running the Lion OS, with the two-battery wireless keyboard and trackpad.  A couple months ago, both the keyboard and trackpad started using batteries at an unreal rate - replacing them every week now.  I suspect there was an auto-update somewhere along the line that started this, but Apple has no answers for me.  I know about the old 3 batt keyboard issues, and the firmware updates that saved them.  Anyone know of a work-around for this this issue? Thanks in advance.

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.4), i5 processor
