I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on a laptop and have an Apple bluetooth keyboard which pairs fine.
Every time I turn my computer off and back on again my keyboard stops working. I have to use the keyboard on my laptop to log in.
Once I've logged in, in order to get the wireless keyboard to work, I need disconnect and reconnect it by:
Clicking on the Bluetooth icon, select Apple Wireless Keyboard from the drop down menu, then click on Disconnect.
Clicking on the Bluetooth icon, select Apple Wireless Keyboard from the drop down menu, then click on Connect.
Looking through syslog, to see what's happening during boot, I find:
Nov 25 10:29:21 sony kernel: [ 24.525372] apple 0005:05AC:0239.0002: parse failed Nov 25 10:29:21 sony kernel: [ 24.525379] apple: probe of 0005:05AC:0239.0002 failed with error -14
and then later in syslog, once I've disconnected then connected the keyboard, I find:

I can't find anything helpful when Googling "apple: probe of failed with error -14".
