    Is the on/off switch on back of the keyboard fully flipped to the ON position (might want to toggle it a few time just to make sure)?

    I have had my Revue for about 4-5 weeks, and even leave the switch on the back of it on many times at night, and I still have the same batteries.( keyboard ).
    I may be wrong, but, if you leave the switch in the on position after a " certain " amount of time, it automatically shuts itself off..
    I could be wrong, but I remember reading that somewhere..

    Hey skoretsky, do you mean about James Brady?
    I am not having any issues here.
    But what I meant was, after a certain of time of inactivity, it doesn't drain the battery, or it shuts itself off.
    The keyboard that is.

    Yeh meant to respond about James. Thought I had read the same thing about the keyboard you did (can't remember where).

    3 months with the Revue, I have never "shut off" the keyboard via the switch and am still on the original batteries with no problems.

    I guess I would also ask how you know it is powering off? There isn't a status light or anything on the keyboard.
