Microsoft Bluetooth Keyboard
Hello all!

I have been meaning to move fully over to linux as my main OS for some time, but have never been able to get my Bluetooth keyboard working correctly. It is a Microsoft one, and came with a mouse, which connected fine on the first try.

The problem, I think, lies in the passcode. Microsoft drivers issue a new one every time you add the device to the computer, there isn't just one to work with the keyboard each time. Looking at the this ( site it lists my keyboard as working perfectly! I can connect it manually using hidd --connect mac-address, but as soon as it goes to sleep (12 minutes) I need to retype this to get the keyboard to work again. The same goes for when the system itself boots.

I am hoping and praying someone here has experience with this exact keyboard and can help me with this problem. Right now I am using Slackware 12.0 with KDE 3.5 and KBluetooth 1.0 beta 8.
