    Hello All,

    This is my very first post. My wireless keyboard does the following: When I boot up in the Am, the keyboard works fine. Like clockwork, within 10 minutes, a few keys stop functioning. esc, return, letters O and P. After an overnight shut down, the key board works for ten minutes in the AM then back to failed keys. Wash, rinse, repeat. I have recently installed Mojave. Nothing was spilled on it. Any help would be appreciated as this is driving me InSaNe!!

    OK, thanks.

    -Is it one of the latest Apple Magic Keyboards that are rechargeable? With or without the Numeric Keypad?
    -Have you tried using compressed air to blow out the keys?
    -Could someone else have spilled something on it, or do you have any pets?
    -What is the charge level?
    -Have you tried un-paring it via the Bluetooth preference pane and re-pairing it?
    -Do you have a USB wired keyboard to try in its place?
