    So I just went out and bought a BT Keyboard, and so far it's great. I only have one issue. Every once in a while, it gets disconnected randomly. I thought it was just with my PowerMac G5 because I just installed the BT module today, and I didn't get the antenna for it yet, but I'm using it on my PowerBook G4 right now, and it's still randomly disconnecting. Any ideas? Also, the keyboard is only about 1-2 feet away from the G5 and the G4.

    So I just payed $25 for an external antenna for the G5, and now, it's still doing the same thing. The keyboard is disconnecting randomly from only a couple feet away, and the Mouse is lagging like crazy. wtf!

    My powermac g4 does this sometimes too. Update software and reboot, rebooting stops it for me.

    I've got my BT keyboard and Mouse. I've got my Wireless Router, too. Otherwise, that's it

    Does it have power settings that are causing it to shut itself off after a few minutes?
