    I have an Apple Keyboard from my iMac. And it's Bluetooth enabled, not wired. But whenever I try to pair my iPad with it, the spinning wheel just keep on spinning. When I press "return" on the keyboard, a popup comes and says, "Please type XXXXXX on the keyboard to pair" or something, but it only pops up for a split second, then disappears with another popup, "Could not pair with Keyboard" What is wrong?

    Hehe. The funny part is, my iMac crashed months ago. We had the keyboard paired with our MacBook Pro, but my dad removed It from the house. And we have a Mac Pro, but dad took the display out. :/ So now what?

    ^^ That'll just turn it off and on. Just turn off the Mac Pro and it won't be paired to it... It can go into pairing mode as long as it isn't connected to anything. So turn off anything it could connect 2,

    Actually, I don't think the keyboard was paired with the Mac Pro. It's possible, but I didn't do it. But since the computer isn't in the vicinity of the keyboard, doesn't that mean that it's not paired anymore? And surely the computers have been turned off since they've been removed. :/
