Typing quickly didn't make a difference. There is a delay of many
seconds between attempting to connect to the keyboard and the popup
appearing offering the option to type in a passphrase. Here's some new

If I type in the password on the integrated keyboard and hit enter
BEFORE I type in the password on the bluetooth keyboard and hit enter,
then I see a popup balloon indicating that a bonding was created between
the keyboard and the computer. "Microsoft Keyboard" appears in the list
of input devices on the Services tab. On the tab that says myhostname-0,
I see "Microsoft Keyboard" in the list of bonded devices. On the far
right, I see a key icon indicating a bonding and a yellow star
indicating that it's a trusted device.

However, the plug icon indicating a connection is missing. If I press
buttons on the keyboard then the plug icon appears indicating a
connection, but no keypresses get through to the computer. After a few
seconds, the plug icon disappears again.

Any thoughts?
