I have a Das Keyboard X50Q and as of late it will randomly go dark and no longer seem to have power going to it. I swap ports and even to my older Das Keyboard, but neither will work. I can use a BT Apple Keyboard and that works. If I restart my computer it does work for awhile.

I'm hoping there is a way I can identify why it is disabling it. Is there a particular log that can show the reason? Is there anyway to enable it without restarting?

Hardware: Macbook Pro 16inch 2019

  • macOS Big Sur v11.5.2

    Have you downloaded the latest version of the Das Keyboard Q software? What version of macOS is running on the MBP, and which model of the DSQ are you using?

  • I had switched to a new Macbook recently and forgot about the Q software. I just installed that and it started working... go figure. Thank you! Commented Aug 24, 2021 at 12:49
