I have removed the keyboard in OS X, and when I try to get it to pair it will show up and ask me to enter a string of numbers and hit enter, and when I do, it says it is working, but the keyboard itself stays in discovery mode (blinking light) and doesn't work.

I have followed every guide I can find with no success. Is there anything I have to do after it is 'paired' to be able to actually get the keyboard to realize that it is paired and not automatically go into discovery mode?

27" iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

    After some more testing, I am now unable to enter anything on the keyboard.

    It recognizes it when I go to add a device, but when it asks for a pairing code they keyboard doesn't work to enter it.

    Now i've gotten it paired again, but it doesn't actually work.

    There is nothing in the services tab.

    This is easily the most frustrating computer issue I have dealt with, and is making my switch to Macs seem like a lost cause. Why advertise the capability to run Windows with Boot Camp and pack in a bluetooth keyboard when there are clearly a huge number of issues with that combination.

    This problem is not a problem with Windows or Apple. It has to do with when the updates are applied to Windows boot camp. The way to fix this is as follows. First click on the bluetooth icon from the Windows start page. Then click show bluetooth items. From this window click add a new device. When the device appears double click on the icon for the device. A window should appear that at the top says general and other. Click on the other tab and another window comes up with a small box in it. Check the box and Windows will search and install the exact, correct drivers for the device. Now the device will pair and work fine.

    I'm having the same issue as the poster. I tried to follow these directions, and devices never show up. It just goes on searching forever without results.
