No, the keyboard is plugged in. Yes, I do get the odd IR interference
(it seems to flash to a rhythm) but this is a solid on. The computer
isn't asleep. I turn on the TV, Myth's at whatever menu I left it at,
but the remote won't work until I use the keyboard and then suddenly
the light will go off or flick for a second and the remote can be used
