I'm having problems with my Apple Bluetooth keyboard. I was just warned that it had low batteries, so I swapped them out with another set of freshly charged batteries.  But the keyboard will not pair with the computer or be recognized. The green light comes on very briefly (about 3-4 seconds) then turns off - it does not blink.  This is too quick for my computer (iMac Intel Core 2 Duo) to see it and reconnect.


I almost think that my keyboard doesn't realize that it has new batteries. I swapped to a pair of new akalines, and that had no change.  Is there a way to "reset" the keyboard?
