I have an iMac G5 with the wireless keyboard and mouse. The iMac does not have the blue tooth card inside. The keyboard and mouse have worked fine for about 4 years. I had not turned on the iMac in about 10 days and when I did no keyboard or mouse. I replaced all batteries and the lights blink but will not pair. The key caps green light does not even come on. I have an old USB mouse and it works fine, but I can't find where to get the computer to try to pair the keyboard or mouse. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

    Thanks for the input, but, since my G5 does not have a blue tooth card, there is no blue tooth option under system prefs--internet. There was an option in 2004 when I purchased it to get the wireless KB and mouse without the bluetooth card.
    Just to let you know I did get them working. When you change batteries on the KB and mouse on a G5 configured this way you must first turn off the computer and after installing new batteries, turn off both KB and mouse. Then turn on the computer and then the KB and mouse. It will then "pair" them both. I had forgotten about this because I don't use that computer that often.
