Desktops :: IMac (OS X) Cannot Find Mouse

Sep 5, 2009

When I start my iMAC (OS X) there is a good chance that it WILL NOT pair with my Logitech M555b (Bluetooth) mouse. It IS set to be "discoverable." The Apple mouse's trackball was a constant problem; it had to be cleaned often. Changed to the M555b and now I'm being punished by the MAC gods for my infidelity.

Desktops :: IMAC Not Boots -only Chimes - Keyboard Not Responding

Apr 10, 2010

I am trying to figure out why an iMAC does not boot properly. Model ECM 2133 Memory:1GB (only 1 module in one of the 2 available slots). Everytime I push the power button I only hear the chime sound and that's it. You can hear the HDD spinning but the screen is always black. I already did the SMU and PRAM reset and nothing changes.Keyboard is still unresponsive and the screen is black. Mouse light is responsive. I pluged the keyboard on another computer and it works fine. Sorry if I'm not doing something right but I am a newbie with MAC's

I am sorry if this has posted before.

I was wondering if selling parts of the iMac, like the Magic mouse or the wireless keyboard would void the warranty?

Earlier today I used the comuter and it was okay. Othing seemed wrong. I turned it off and just now I tried to turn it on and the keyboard and mouse is not responding. Does anybody have a solution?

IMac :: What Keyboard/mouse/trackpad For Use With TV

Apr 2, 2009

I just got my new $599 Mac Mini hooked up tonight. Wow. This thing is fast considering I still have only the 1GB of memory in it. For regular stuff, it feels as fast as my 2.4 GHZ iMac with 4GB of memory and normal speed hard drive.

Anyway, it works pretty good with my TV.

However, what type of keyboard or mouse do you recommend? Right now I'm having to use my powerbook to control it, using teleport along with a wired keyboard and mouse plugged into the back, hidden, just so it doesn't complain about not having one.

I don't know if I should go with the two Apple products, keyboard and mouse.

OR should I get a keyboard with a built in trackpad, since I will mainly be using it on the couch. What do you recommend?

Hardware :: IMac Keyboard - Mighty Mouse

Aug 11, 2007

I am about to purchase a new imac with the 2.8 intel extreme, 2gb ram etc. but I'm having difficulty with the keyboard and mouse decision and whether or not I should go wireless. I think I have decided not to go wireless on the mighty mouse as I don't like them and would rather buy a different one, perhaps a logitech mouse - any suggestions? The keyboard I know will be fantastic as it is the same key as my macbook's, But can someone please give me the pros and cons of each except the obvious of course being wired has usb hubs and wireless will use batteries. What differences are there between the two and is it worth the extra 5 week delivery wait for the wireless?

IMac :: Batteries Exploded In Mouse And Keyboard

Sep 8, 2010

My magic mouse and keyboard both were not working. I pulled the battery cover over the mouse and saw that the Apple supplied batteries made quite a nice mess inside it. Did the same to the keyboard and there is a nice mess in there too. In both devices one of the batteries exploded. I was able to clean the keyboard a little bit and it will turn on, but the mouse will not. I got both of them with my 27" iMac I got a few months ago. Has this happened to anyone else, and does anyone know if Apple will replace the mouse for something like this?

IMac :: Use Wireless Keyboard & Magic Mouse?

Jan 5, 2011

I've been lurking around this forum for a few weeks, gathering information to decide what Mac I wanted to order. I appreciate all the information that is available here! I took the plunge this afternoon and thought I should register as I'm sure I'll have questions in the coming weeks. I played around with an iMac at an Apple Store a few months back and kicked around buying one. I really enjoy my iPhone and my iPad, but I kept thinking about the iBook G4 that has been gathering dust because I never really took the time to learn the Mac OS. Then my Windows laptop quit and I had to send it off for repair. I dug out the iBook and that put me over the edge. For whatever reason, I had no problems figuring out the OS this time around. I've been trying to figure out how to justify an iMac ever since. Today I ordered a refurbished 21.5" iMac from Apple's refurbished site. I ended up ordering over the phone -- I called Apple to ask a couple of questions, and when I mentioned that Amazon offered Apple Care cheaper, the sales rep gave me a discount on the Apple Care. Plus, I got a free (after rebate) AirPrint-capable printer. So, I think I ended up with a pretty good deal. After all that, I'll get to my question -- do you use the wireless keyboard & magic mouse? They seemed fine when I was using them at the Apple Store, but that was just for a short time. I'm wondering how I will like them when I'm editing photos or typing a long document (I deal with all the numbers I can handle at work, so I don't do much at home that would require the number keypad).

OS X :: Pairing Wireless Keyboard And Mouse With IMac?

Mar 10, 2009

I'm about to order my first iMac and I want both the wireless keyboard and mouse, the problem is how do I pair them with the iMac? Nothing will be wired in the first time its turned on so how will i be able to do anything - such as tell the iMac to look for the wireless kit? I don't have an old USB keyboard or mouse, so unless the iMac is clever enough to look the first time its turned on i'm stuffed. I don't want to have to buy a separate USB mouse just to tell it I have a wireless mouse, defeats the object!

OS X :: How To Disable Imac Keyboard And Mouse While In Sleep Mode

Mar 2, 2009

I like putting my imac to sleep. Unfortunately I have a cat that moves the mouse and steps on the keyboard while I am work. Is there any way I can disable the keyboard and mouse and just use the power button to wake it up from sleeping?

I basically want to keep it asleep as much as possible to save on electricity, since I am not home about 10 hours of the day and asleep for the other 7, makes no sense in draining all the electricity. I was hoping someone could lead me to a small piece of software that allow this to happen.

IMac :: Sharing Monitor / Keyboard And Mouse With Windows?

Mar 8, 2009

I am a Windows User but would like to get started with a Mac. I am thinking of getting a Mac Mini. In the Windows world I can share two desktops with a KVM for Monitor (RGB) / Keyboard / Mouse. I don't want to run Windows on the Mac. I prefer to have separate computers. I have considered maybe using Remote Desktop from Windows to the Mac or the other way around. And can you even use a Windows Keyboard and Mouse with a Mac. I assume the Monitor (with DVI) is not a problem.

Applications :: Share IMac Mouse / Keyboard With Win XP Netbook Possible?

May 4, 2009

There are Mac to Mac and Windows to Windows apps to do this (like when you go to the left of your screen the mouse appears on the other computer and you can use it as if you were using that computer). Is there a way to do this using my iMac as the host (running OSX) and the netbook as the client (running Windows XP). It needs to be compatible with the two screens my iMac has hooked up.

IMac :: Bluetooth Firmware Update - Mouse / Keyboard Fix

Jun 17, 2009

I know this affects iMac users than any other product so I thought it would be worth mentioning that Apple has released a Bluetooth firmware update found in Software Update: This update provides bug fixes and better compatibility with the Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse and Apple Wireless Keyboard. It installs on all Macintosh systems with Bluetooth based on the Broadcom chipset. Those who are having trouble, download and note any improvements for others who are having the same problem.

IMac :: No Mouse / Keyboard Over USB - Attempts To Find Over Bluetooth

Jul 3, 2009

So after upgrading to a mbp as my main machine, I retired my old imac to the bedroom for media center duty. I've got things close to how I want them with front row and plex doing most of the dirty work. For my planned use, no keyboard or mouse are needed. A combo of the apple remote and snatch on my itouch are doing quite well. The problem is, if I turn the machine off, it sees no mouse or keyboard over usb, and attempts to find them over bluetooth. Does anyone know how I can get rid of this? I've tried just turning bluetooth off before shutdown, but this doesn't seem to solve it. This is REALLY annoying, as I'd prefer to keep the machine off more often rather than having is sleep all the time.

IMac :: Wireless Keyboard And Mouse Not Pick Up Signals

Nov 10, 2009

I just got my Mac Mini today and got it all set up. The guy at the store said any keyboard with Bluetooth should work, but it's not picking up any kind of signal for some reason. Nor is the mouse. I bought the RocketFish Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo. Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong? I followed all of the directions on the box and in the instructions. My computer won't let me choose any set up options until it will pick up on the mouse.

IMac :: Wireless Keyboard And Wired Mouse Sometimes Not Working?

Apr 11, 2010

I've had my imac for over a year and a half now with no troubles. But, the last couple of weeks my wireless keyboard has not been working. A message pops up saying that the connection has been lost. Then, the wired mouse moves around....but won't select or highlight anything...the 'click' doesn't work. Then all of a sudden everything goes back to normal.

IMac :: Use Wireless Keyboard And Mouse From G5 - Plug In One Usb Port?

Jun 26, 2010

I wanted to buy a new Mac Pro, but it was pointed out that it was way more than I needed to process digital photos. Also, the price is over the top. I am now considering the IMac; one of the 27" models. My question is: Can I not use the wireless keyboard and mouse? Can I use the same keyboard and mouse from my G5? Can I plug them into one of the USB ports. My external HD is a Firewire 400 connection. Will this work in the one FW 800 port on the IMac? My reason for upgrading from my G5 is that Photoshop Elements 8 will not work on my G5. PE 8 has some features I would like to have.
