The Magic Mouse has numerous power management issues, but Apple’s at last solved at least one of them: the latest update to hit Apple’s Support Site promises to fix the bug that caused the Magic Mouse in conjunction with a 2007 aluminum Bluetooth keyboard to bleed out power.
Apple’s traditionally terse release notes for the Aluminum Keyboard Firmware Update version 1.1 read:
Improves battery performance of the 2007 aluminum Apple Wireless Keyboard when used in combination with other bluetooth devices and addresses an issue with the 2007 aluminum Apple Keyboard and the 2007 aluminum Apple Wireless Keyboard where a key may repeat unexpectedly while typing.
Any Magic Mouse owners out there able to confirm the update fixed their keyboard power problems? Let us know if you spot an improvement in the comments.
