10.6: Single User Mode and Bluetooth keyboards
Authored by: stepwallace on Jan 27, '11 02:51:07PM

This has been the case for some time, however it is often difficult getting the timing right which can give the impression that it won't work. (Quite often I would resort to recommending the user get a wired keyboard simply because it was "easier" for the user.)

A quick search of the apple site shows this text from the 10.4.3 delta update from back in 2008:
“Allows Apple Wireless Keyboards to work in single-user mode.”.

I'm not sure if this hint will work with any bluetooth keyboard or just Apple's own wireless one.

"I'm not sure if this hint will work with any bluetooth keyboard or just Apple's own wireless one."

Another good question.

Hopefully, someone with a 3rd party bluetooth keyboard will chime into the discussion.

(At this point, I'm close to just buying a cheap 3rd party BT keyboard from Amazon that I can return within 30 days and giving it a try, but I'd be happy to get more info before I risk going off on a wild goose chase...)
