    Or turn off the ZAGGmate by sliding the switch or press the keyboard button on the top row of the ZAGGmate to toggle the onscreen keyboard on or off.

    Zagg keyboard and iPad have been off overnight. Bluetooth has been off since last evening. There is still no virtual keyboard to be seen. This started with with the key repeat episode. It could be two different problems. I'm not panicking, but it is a problem not having either keyboard.

    You have some iOs software issues. If the iPad can't see a keyboard (like when it's switched off), it should go straight to the onscreen keyboard. I'd start with an update of your software and see where that takes you. The ZAGGmate can't cause the problems you describe. If the iPad won't default to the onscreen keyboard, something is wrong with the iPad.

    Have you tried holding the home and power button on the Ipad for about 15-17 seconds ?
    It's a different type of reboot that might clear up the glitch.

    When will the wood finish skin (for the back) for the Ipad2 be available?

    The only technical issue is iOS drops the voltage slightly on the USB camera connection kit adapter. This is why thumb drives don't work as the port needs to power them. In charging batteries the voltage needs to be higher so current will flow into the battery being charged. You may get a little recharge action ... But not a lot. This is also why Apple provides a separate charging brick .. It puts out higher voltage ... Otherwise it would take forever to charge up the iPad battery. FWIW

    In a bind, though, having the ability to just power the ZaggMate keyboard (even if it doesn't charge it at all) using the Camera Connection Kit is still a nice little thing to know, in case you were in a bind, with a dead ZaggMate!

    No ... Bluetooth only allows one pairing at a time ... Other wise confusion to iPad would set in.

    Keys still not working

    So I'm on my second keyboard now it is just as defective as the first one. Unfortunately this time around I lost the receipt so I can't replace it for a 3rd time...

    1. Random keys do not work. Mostly in the top row. QWERTY and UIOP work when they feel like it, which is about 20% of the time.

    2. Constantly get double key presses. AA BB CC...

    3. Re-pairing the device, restarting bluetooth and resetting the keyboard does nothing to help it. Tried every combination possible.

    4. Newest iOS to date.

    5. Keyboard at full charge.

    6. It takes up to 2 minutes for all the keys to register correctly and a few minutes later they stop working again.

    7. Bought first one at one Best Buy, returned and replaced it at another location, so it's not an abused shipment or anything. Some Best Buy stores tend to drop boxes without a care. (I bought a TV 2 years ago that was damaged upon opening it up.)

    I own a $100 stand for my iPad. Sigh.
