About the Indicator Light
The LED on your Apple Wireless Keyboard functions as a battery indicator and a status
light. When you first turn on your keyboard, the light glows steadily for 5 seconds,
indicating the batteries are good. After 5 seconds, if your keyboard isn’t paired with
your Mac, the light begins to blink indicating your keyboard is in discovery mode and
ready to pair with your Mac (pairing means your keyboard and Mac are connected
wirelessly and ready to communicate with each other).
If you don’t pair your keyboard with your Mac within 3 minutes, the indicator light and
keyboard turn off to preserve battery life. Push and release the On/off (®
) switch to
turn your keyboard on again, allowing you to pair it with your Mac (see page 5).
Once you successfully pair your keyboard with your Mac, the indicator light glows
steadily for 3 seconds, and then turns off. If you push the On/ off (®
) switch and the
light doesn’t illuminate, you may need new or charged batteries.
