    Problem with bios-paired bluetooth keyboard

      It seems to be a very flawed implementation. While it initially appears to work, when any device is paired with the bios, the unit will not boot until you wake up the keyboard and establish a connection. While this may be suitable for some cases where frequent interaction with the bios or bootloader are necessary, it is frustrating for a "normal" user, who only occasionally needs to interact with bios/bootloader.

       

      I would suggest that a tap of the power button during POST should be used to trigger the bluetooth keyboard mode, or a reasonable (short) timeout (say 5-10 seconds) until it continues booting without the keyboard.
