    Wireless keyboard not pairing up with Mac after restart

    Facing this issue for some time in my Mac where the wireless keyboard is not getting detected at all but it was working before and I tried disconnecting and connecting back again but still I have the same issue. What can be done for this problem? Can someone give me the points which I need to follow for fixing the issue?

    Actually see the settings once and if any wrong exists, then correct it.

    Also Reset option:

    << 1.>> "Firstly turn off the Keyboard, Remove the Batteries".
    << 2.>> "Click the Bluetooth icon and then select Set up Bluetooth Device".
    << 3.>> "It starts searching after the Bluetooth Assistance is Up".
    << 4.>> "Insert the batteries and Hold the Power button key".
    << 5.>> "Now your Keyboard is appearing in the assistance".
    << 6.>> "Now select the Keyboard from the list".
    << 7.>> "Click on Continue".
    << 8.>> "Once you get the pairing code , go of the power button and type the code".

    Now your keyboard will get paired, ( NOTE: You should hold the power button for the entire process --- Don't forget this.)

    Thanks and keep posting.
