At home when I'm not using the TouchPad, I leave it sitting on the kitchen island in front of the BT keyboard. When I want to check a Web site or send an email, I sit down, turn on the TP, and tap a key on the keyboard to pair them. Again, this works about half the time. Sometimes I can resolve the issue by toggling the switch on the battery compartment (is that definitely a switch and not just a slide lock for the battery compartment?!), and when that doesn't work I've even popped the batteries out of the keyboard and put them back in. Sometimes that doesn't even work and I have to delete and re-add the pairing.
Has this been anyone else's experience? If so, have you found a solution for it? If not, are you using some other way to get the tablet and the keyboard to pair reliably?
