Follow these steps if your Magic Mouse or Apple Wireless Keyboard no longer responds when using Boot Camp to run Windows. 

  1. Shut down Windows.
  2. Restart your computer using Mac OS X.
  3. Re-pair the mouse and re-pair the keyboard.
  4. Restart the computer using Windows; the mouse and keyboard should return to full operation.

If you have recently applied a Windows update, your wireless keyboard may not wake your computer from sleep.  Clicking the Magic Mouse should always wake your computer up.  The next time you restart, your keyboard should return to normal operation.
