PRAM reset will not hurt anything, and might help.

Bother (non swearing alternative). Have reset the NVRAM (Intel version of the PRAM) and it still drops off. It does reconnect quicker, and only drops on average once every two hours rather then x 3 an hour.
Any other ideas? Faulty keyboard? Trouble is like most other apple accessories I'm still paying off the mortgage taken out to pay for the keyboard.

I have exactly the same problem on a 2010 13" MacBook Pro. It's driving me crazy and would appreciate help. None of the suggestions here have worked.

My macbook pro 13 in was bought early 2011. Which gets us no closer. I have a magic trackpad that sits next to the keyboard, and that is continously connected and never drops. So I think it's the key board. I also suspect that this isn't a common problem as the discussions have been solved with all the options that I've tried. To quote Winston, "we will not surrender..."

Happening to me too.

Disconnection all the time. Mostly when inactive, won't return to active mode.

May be onto something I found from old forum entries. hardware not software, I stuck in a rolled up piece of tin foil between the battery and the screw in cap, and it is dropping a lot less, once a day - yesterday. Hows that for a highly technical solution?

I have a similiar problem, however, both my keyboard and trackpad drop off. I thought the only solution was to restart Bluetooth.

Quite annoying when you work in closed clamshell mode.
