Is this update applicable to the USB aluminum keyboard? If it's just for the Blue-Tooth they should call it that.

It's in the picture, the description makes it clear it's for the wireless keyboard, and the USB keyboard doesn't take batteries. I think I'll let the off this time. ;)

Hey Billy!!!

The keyboard works fine, but the Bluetooth menu icon says the battery is at 100% and I've had the iMac for 5 weeks. I don't know how much power is left in the batteries. Also, when I click Set up Bluetooth device it searches endlessly for a keyboard stating 'No keyboard found'. This has been documented on many Mac forums and I was hoping this might be a fix.

Hey Billy!!!

I ran the update hoping that the '100% battery' bug would disappear. No luck; Bluetooth still says 100% and keeps searching, saying "no keyboard found, please check to see if turned on or batteries inserted". Meanwhile, the keyboard is working. ????

I just updated mine and it made me restart, had no problems. do you have auto login disabled? I have noticed on SL the keyboard vanishes at the login prompt sometime.
