Microsoft Media Centre MCE Wireless Keyboard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am using the a Microsoft Media Centre MCE Wireless Keyboard with built-in Mouse (the mouse by the way is a little thumb device on the top-right corner of the keyboard). The remote sensor for the keyboard is built-in to an Antec Fusion case. My problem is that I have to login before the keyboard/sensor is activated, hence, I have to have a wired keyboard on the ready to enter my password.  Has anyone encountered this before please.  Thanks in advance....

    Regards, Simon
