should be reestablished within 2-3 seconds but this may

Bluetooth system to re-initialize.
NOTE: Do not press <Ctrl> Left <Fn> Right <Fn>
together. This will break the bond between the keyboard
and the Pocket PC device. If this happens, you will have
to establish a new connection as described above.
Even when disconnected, the Pocket PC device and the keyboard remain bonded. The
keyboard will only reconnect to the bonded Pocket PC device and the Pocket PC device
will only listen to the bonded keyboard. To break the bond press <Ctrl> Left <Fn> Right

bond will not need to be broken unless the keyboard will be used with another Pocket
PC device or another keyboard will be used with the Pocket PC device. Therefore,
please avoid pressing <Ctrl> Left <Fn> Right <Fn> during normal operation. If this has
happened, you will have to establish a new connection as described in the Configuring
the Keyboard to Your Pocket PC Device section above.
