This is a follow-up question to Are all bluetooth keyboards slow to respond?.
I've been given a MacBook Pro (now running macOS High Sierra 10.13.6), and a third-party bluetooth keyboard (J.Burrows). I have a number of issues with the keyboard:
- it's not very sensitive - many keystrokes get missed
- if I leave the computer for a few minutes I have to wait about 10 seconds before I can use the keyboard again
- it disconnects while I'm typing
- the function keys are not affected by the keyboard setting in System Settings (I always have to press fn+ a function key, although the built-in keyboard is affected
I've tried switching the keyboard off and back on again, and I've looked through System Settings, but "Set Up Bluetooth Keyboard..." has no options, even when the keyboard entry under "Devices" is double-clicked. It only has an X to remove the keyboard.
What can I do to resolve these problems? I don't have another bluetooth keyboard I can swap it with.
Apparently this is how these keyboards work. See the reviews on Officeworks.
