  2. I've run into a few computers that won't recognize a USB keyboard (or
    mouse) until Windows is loaded. Sometimes they won't even work when
    Windows is running in safe mode. This can be a problem if you want to
    change settings in the BIOS, or need to work in safe mode. PS2
    keyboards don't have this issue.

  3. Is there any patch that allows you to change BIOS when using the Microsoft
    wireless Bluetooth devices?

  4. able to be access from there. Maybe a bios update/flash.
    You can't enter the BIOS using Bluetooth devices, regarding the Wireless
    destop Bluetooth keyboard/mouse combo from Microsoft.

    Coreless is a different argument, as you will have to plug it in
    somewhere anyway.

    hub due.

    USB uses toooooo much CPU time, slows your system down 10% or more in
    most cases.

    If you must us USB, put it on stuff you turn on and off, printers ect.

    Or better yet use Firwire, or atleast USB 2.
