Not sure if anyone can help me but here it goes.
I just bought the Ideacentre B500 and tried to sync the bluetooth keyboard and mouse. The mouse works fine but the keyboard battery light keeps on blinking. I tried to re pair it and entered the code and it works fine. Once I installed Itunes, then both the mouse and keyboard goes back to the blinking state and not work. I located the keyboard and mouse on my hardware page and tried to remove and add again but then nothing happens.
Therefore, i one key recovered the comp since it was new and nothing is on it, then it works fine again. Once I installed itunes, the same thing happens.
Does anybody have a solutions for this? Thanks in advance for your help.

I just bought the IdeaCentre B500 and I am having the same issues as Wazzup. The bluetooth connection between the keyboard and mouse does not work very well. The mouse and especially the keyboard both do not respond sometimes after the computer is brought up from sleep mode and/or restarted. When they do work, it takes a minute or two and it seems to help if I hold the mouse in the air for several seconds until the red light underneath starts blinking. Is there a fix for this issue? Is there another way to use the keyboard and mouse with IR or something else?
I also have issues using my "networked' printers. I can add them and the printers work fine, until I shut down the computer. After a restart I must "remove" the printers and once again "add" them for the printers to work. If I just put the computer to "sleep" and do not completely shut it down, then the printers are recognized fine and work fine when it awakens. Any ideas?

I have a similar problem with my B540 keyboard in that when I first boot up some keys on the keyboard don't function.
I have to hold the keyboard near the dongle and keep pressing one of the keys that doesn't work. After around 15 -20 minutes the keyboard them works fine, although occasionally these same keys do stop working and have to do the same again to get them working.
When I have got them working near the dongle and then move the keyboard away sometimes they stop working again.
The main keys that do not work are Tab, the left Shift, W, E, T, Y and 4,5,6 on the number keypad.
If one of these keys does not work, none of them do, but if one of them does work, all of them work
I have no problem with the mouse.
Can anyone please help
