    Using an iPad 2 with the Apple bluetooth wireless keyboard. Whenever I turn the keyboard on, the green light in the upper right hand corner blinks meaning it hasn't established a connection. On the iPad, I have to go to settings, turn bluetooth off, turn bluetooth on, then click on 'apple wireless keyboard' to get it to connect. I have to do this everytime I want to use the keyboard.

    Every once in a blue moon I will power on my keyboard and it will connnect automatically with the iPad. But this is once in a blue moon. This being an Apple product, I would have thought it would be easier to connect my keyboard to my iPad whenever I wanted to type instead of having to go into settings all the time.

    One of the reasons I lasted only a week with the wireless KB. I used the smart-cover to give me a tilt and type with the virtual KB. Heaven.

    Random shot in the dark:

    Make sure you've got strong batteries in the keyboard. A weak signal might cause this.
