I recently purchased the new keyboard for my wife's mini (usb) and my macbook pro (bluetooth) both have had problems with a key getting stuck, not physically, but getting constant ` typed on my macbook and I think the arrow on the mini. It comes and goes so I think it might be a driver problem or something. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

    Hello James:

    I have not noted any similar problem, but that is not to indicate that one does not exist. The KB should be plug and play so a driver should not be an issue.

    My aluminum keyboard and the old wireless keyboard do the same thing. Must be a bluetooth range problem I think. I'm contacting Apple now to see what they can do about it.

    Hi,

    I just wanted to add that my wired version of the new keyboard is doing the same. Any key i press it just scrolls that letter.

    Is there a fix?

    I see the same thing on a white Apple BT keyboard. It's a range problem. If you go near, no problem, as you move back, problem gets worse and worse until you lose connection. What bothers me is that the problem exists at about 6-8 feet, which is much less than the advertised range and unacceptable for a HTPC.

    it is not a problem caused by being too far away, my keyboard is sitting on the table (bluetooth alu) and it causes plenty of continuous key presses (gets stuck) i.e. after hitting capslock under windows. I'm very disappointed about the support!

    I am having the same issue but only when I run windows XP - I really would like to know how to avoid this. it seems that after about 5 mins. of using the bluetooth keyboard in XP a key just randomly starts repeating until i turn off the computer - I was not able to get it to stop any other way. (it has nothing to do with range as I am 6" from the MBP at all times)
