I was this close to throwing the thing out when I read his comment. It tried it. It worked. Keyboard fixed.
Now you know.
EDIT: Gah. A few hours after writing this post and the keyboard died on me again. I’m sure I can restore it again using the method above, but it seems sort of pointless now. A wireless keyboard which “crashes” every couple of days and needs a couple of hours off to recover is pretty useless. I have to run a wire to get the conventional keyboard into place and then pull the wire again when the logitech cheers up. Defeats the whole point of having a wireless, really.
Still, maybe this will be useful to someone. I am sort of surprised at how short-lived this keyboard was. I don’t expect that from Logitech. And while I’m at it, since when do keyboards need to be so complex that they can crash?
And perhaps I do more blogging about keyboards than seems reasonable, but I spend an incredible amount of time with these things which leads to this odd fixation.
