Apple’s Magic Mouse Draining Bluetooth Keyboard Batteries

16 12 2011

A few days ago I posted about an impressive development of Apple, the New iMac which carries a Bluetooth keyboard and Magic Mouse. Though it holds a charm to work with a Magic Mouse but for last few days Apple iMac users are complaining about the batteries on the Apple’s own discussion forum. They were facing the Bluetooth battery draining.

At the start of the issue, some users reported that they are finding keyboard going Sleep Mode and it is because of using Magic mouse with it, some said Magic mouse is the root of the issue and others were blaming the Snow Leopard (the OS used in iMac) which does not support perfect.

On first stage users were unable to identify the actual problem if it is with keyboard or the Magic mouse. But users by theirselves experimented swapping the Magic mouse with Logitech mouse and the problem disappeared in no time. It showed that the issue was actually with Magic mouse which drains the batteries of wireless keyboard. Even users are reported changing their batteries every week after debate with Apple which does not seem to acknowledge the issue. Though users loved Magic mouse for its magical multi functionality, they are looking toward Apple to resolve this issue soon.

This problem occurred in the New iMac’s wireless two-battery version which started shipping in October. A lot of users approached Apple for this fault but it can not be said confirm if Apple is ignoring or really unaware of the fault.
