    Same problem here, batteries last 14 days max and before MM they lasted for months.

    I am experiencing the same issue. Since installing the necessary software for my new Magic Mouse and upgrading to 10.6.2 Snow Leopard, my battery life in my Apple Aluminum Wireless Keyboard has dropped to about a week on each new set of batteries. Hopefully Apple will fix this soon. It's like the keyboard is not going into standby like it used to.

    I tried calling apple customer support and they said there is no relation to the magic mouse software and the keyboard. And I should take my keyboard in to the apple store. So they are obviously not aware of this problem yet...

    Well, I decided to remove the batteries each night I turn off my Mac.

    In my opinion, the keyboard won't get in sleepmode.

    Lithium batteries holds more power.

    Apple should resolve this. We shouldn't.

    I've got GP ReCyko+ Batteries, Ni-MH, 2050 mAh... should be good ones. And the we're. With 10.6.1!
  • smargiasso Level 1 (0 points)
    yes, same problem here but not answer, since I've installed the magic mouse and snow leopard update 10.6.2 the keyboard batteries last only 10 to 14 days, btw the screensaver does come up but the computer doesn't go in sleep mode after the required amount of time.

    I'm having the same exact issue. Small wireless keyboard. I'm on my third set of batteries in as many weeks. It coincides roughly with the addition of a new magic mouse and OS 10.6.2 Hard to tell which is the culprit, but the keyboard is no longer sleeping... (or something to that effect).

    Me too. Need new batteries every week now. Have switched to wired keyboard until Apple resolves the issue. Pain!
  • Darren Connor Level 2 (380 points)
    me too - the batteries are lasting about a week - used to get months out of them!

    Add me to the list of folk experiencing this issue. My first gen BT Al keyboard is going through set of batteries every 8-12 days since switching to the Magic Mouse and recent OS updates.

    I can't narrow it down to an OS update or the addition of the new Mouse specifically, but I was getting MUCH longer life from the batteries in the keyboard when I was using my old USB Razor mouse.

    Ironic, really. I went from a Mighty Mouse to the USB Razor as I was tired of replacing batteries in that mouse. Now I have a wireless mouse I like and need to switch back to a wired keyboard for battery life issues. shrug

    Add me to the list as well. 20inch iMac running Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and Magic Mouse. I have changed the batteries 3 yes 3 times (Duracell ProCell) in a week and the keyboard is used very little. Please sort this Apple it is getting a wee bit expensive.
  • Darren Connor Level 2 (380 points)
    still no fix?

    I know we pay a premium for apple products but this is madness...

  • StooMonster Level 1 (0 points)
    Add me to the list, with Snow Leopard and Magic Mouse my original wireless keyboard is eating one set of batteries a week, rather than the months it used to last.
  • DaveTheTallGuy Level 1 (0 points)
    Likewise, I'm going through aluminum keyboard batteries weekly. I bought my Magic Mouse on Halloween (maybe I should have known better?) and it's at about 10% left on the batteries as well, which is not nearly as good as my Mighty Mouse performed.
