Apple has released a firmware update for 2007 aluminum Apple keyboards. The update improves battery performance when using the Apple Wireless Keyboard in conjunction with other Bluetooth devices such as the Magic Mouse or some Bluetooth headsets. It also fixes an issue that occurred with both the regular and wireless keyboard wherein keys could repeat randomly when typing. More information, including installation instructions, is available on Apple's Web site. The update is available via Software Update and the Apple Support Downloads page. (Free, 1.52 MB)
Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen
When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?
Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.

if it isn't the correct keyboard or wahtever, will I be alright?
I dread what happened a few years ago with an MacOS updater that killed my OS totally, wiping out my harddrive.
I'd definitely call Apple and see what they can do for you, or go to an Apple Store if that's easy.
I am OK. The updater finally stopped and explained "Update did not complete."
"Please reconnect the keyboard and try again."
I have the status bar going forever!
It says do not interrupt, but it isn't kicking into gear either.
Can I stop it and try again? What will happen? Will it kill my OS?
