    Take a look at the bluetooth driver under device manager. You need to change the bluetooth driver.

    Here is a detailed step-by-step from gloss over at macrumors. (Forum post: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=630024)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "Boot into Windows.

    Click on the Bluetooth control panel, and go to settings. Under Hardware, it probably says 'Generic Bluetooth Adapter'.

    Click 'Properties' and 'Change Settings'.

    Go to drivers, and 'Update Drivers'. Have Windows look on your machine to find all available drivers ('Let me pick from a list')

    UNselect 'Show Compatible Drivers'.

    Look for 'Apple' in the manufacturer names, then select the Apple Bluetooth Driver. Install.

    Once this is done, pair your keyboard through the wizard. It should now bring up a passcode and confirm it much more quickly than before."
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Before the bootcamp 3.1 update the drivers were not very stable and required you to change back to the generic driver to not have the keyboard keep disconnecting.

    You should not need the passcode, at least I didn't but the passcode should be 0000 (four zeros)

    Good Luck!
