    We seldom use the keyboard with the iPad. The current model wireless keyboard (the thin sexy one ;-) is used with a 17" MBP both in the office and on the road.

    The position is fine, especially as the switch covers the entire end of the battery holder - easy to find without too much groping about. The power switch on the Mac Mini on the other hand ...

    If the keyboard switch had a slightly more positive action (a bit more travel and a bit firmer) it would be perfect - and would probably be less prone to accidental activation.

    I just implemented this, and it appears to work quite well. I took a bit of expired credit card, drilled holes along the perimeter, and stitched it to the cache. Hooray!
    Just and dorayme like this.

    I'm glad I'm not alone in this! I've had the same thing happen with my cache and the wireless keyboard -- forget to turn off the bluetooth on the iPad, and find music start to play! But more frustrating was how quickly the batteries ran down because something on the cache presses the power key. I've not tried stitching something flat in there, as I've just not had time (or made the time) to address the issue. TB folks, have you looked at this issue, out of curiosity??? THANKS!

    Has the Cache for the Apple Wireless Keyboard been discontinued? I didn't see it listed anymore. Would the Air11 Cache work? Looks like it might be a little long, but then I don't know if it would fit in the Ristretto iPad Bag. Thanks for any help, Freddie

    Freddie, I just got my Ristretto for iPad and I gotta tell you that the MacBook Air in its Cache, plus the iPad in the built-in compartment, fit PERFECT! I carry both now in the Ristretto for iPad!

    Enjoy.

    Same experience

Is anyone else seeing this behavior?
    I've had the same experience. After finding the batteries in my keyboard completely dead when pulling it out in a meeting twice, I stopped using the cache. Perhaps I'll try the credit card trick, but I'd prefer a redesigned cache.

    Could you post some photos somewhere? I'd like to do this myself.

    Sorry about that: we received a few emails from folks who had the same problem as you (and others here) did. Though most people we talked with didn't experience that problem, enough did that we made the decision not to make the Cache for Apple Wireless Keyboard any longer. Anyone for whom the Cache for Apple Wireless Keyboard doesn't work is welcome to email or call us (1-800-729-9607 or +1-206-652-4123) for a refund.

    I haven't forgotten, I swear! And after a week of taking the keyboard in and out of the cache several times a day at a conference, the upholstery thread I used to stitch the plastic in has let go. So I'll be re-doing it with fishing line, and will take pictures of the process.

    Yikes, I was just about to order one. I've got a different bluetooth keyboard that's slightly smaller. Have any recommendations for something 10.4 x 4.6 x 0.7 inches ?

    That would be cool - I only transport my keyboard once or twice a week so have been taking out the batteries - which annoys me just a little every time.

    I do use the cache and it is perfect otherwise so don't feel entitled to a refund - but I will probably mod it when I get around to it.
