Ok, what happens when I turn on my iMac the next day i worked on it and it doesn't connect to my previously paired wireless keyboard?  I just can connect my mouse but i can't write with my mouse to enter the password for my user account, so, I can't access to my Bluetooth settings.



I turn on my iMac o turn on my wireless apple magic mouse and Wireless keyboard


The Magic mouse and the keyboard were previously paired with the iMac


My iMac gets into the login screen, "type your username and password to continue" screen...


The magic mouse gets detected and start working


The keyboard doesn`t get detected and enters in Discovery Mode (Led flashing)


Can't type password....


can´t Work...


Fixes that  I already tried:



Shutting down the iMac, Disconnect every single wire,   Press the Start button on the "disconnected iMac" for 60 seconds, Reconnect the iMac, Restart, Try conencting the wireless devices... IT DIDN'T WORK.


Any Suggestion?


PS:  I am on a Beach miles away from any USB KEYBOARD
