The only foolproof way to shut down the keyboard is to take out the batteries. Would it really be that hard to put in a slide switch or something? I've tried the push and hold on the button, which works until I put something else in the backpack or set the backpack down and something touches the very easily pushed power button. So I only use the keyboard when it's worth the hassle of putting in the batteries.iPad, iOS 4

If I ruled the world, I would make Macs and Windows use the control key consistently. Windows apps let you use "control-right arrow" to move one word to the right, as an example. I've never found any consistency with the Mac and couldn't find any consistency with the iPad either.
You can configure a Mac to mimic the Windows functions based on physical location of the keys (ignore the labeling). I never did it on my Mac because my wife got too familiar with the Mac convention. Now, with an iPad and a ZAGGmate with KB, I'm glad that I didn't make the change.
