I am being asked to setup my keyboard every time I reboot my computer. Is there anyway I can get this to keep the setup?

I am on Snow Leopard and have a Logitech Wave wireless keyboard and mouse combo. This started happening when I switched to 64-bit mode. Booting into 32-bit mode doesn't fix it.

Is it a bluetooth keyboard? And does this Apple link by chance help at all? – Vervious Aug 24 '10 at 23:38
No, it has it's own receiver. – Mike Wills Aug 25 '10 at 13:43

Um, standard "stock" fixes:

  • Repair permissions
  • Check logs
  • Erase (Logitech) software and reinstall

You could also see if it is actually saving the connection details (by finding the pref file) or it is unable to.

How do I repair permissions and where are the logs? – Mike Wills Aug 24 '10 at 18:44
Repairing permissions seemed to work! Thanks! – Mike Wills Aug 27 '10 at 13:32

Repair permissions: Run Disk Utility; select your (main) disk; click Repair Disk Permissions

Viewing logs: Run Console
