I am using the Apple Wireless Keyboard with the Kindle Fire HD (7"), and it works well (no repeat keys issue, bought the KIndle Fire HD at the end of Dec. 2012), EXCEPT for one issue, hoping someone can help.
After I pair the keyboard with the KFHD, and then put the KFHD into sleep mode (close the cover), when I turn it on again, the KFHD is still paired with the Apple keyboard. I can tell, because certain keys work: the arrow keys, COMMAND-E takes me to email, etc.
HOWEVER, the most important keys: the actual keyboard keys: qwerty etc result in nothing ... they are essentially no-ops. Has anyone experienced this and if so, know how to fix it? I'm hoping the keyboard is in some odd state, and there is some magic key combo to fix this. (The only fix I've found is to power down the KFHD and restart it ... repairing the keyboard - forgetting the Apple keyboard and re-pairing - does not forget it ....)

(NOTE: the issue doesn't happen if the KFHD goes to sleep on its own after the timeout period ... so perhaps the problem occurs after a period of use when the Apple keyboard powers itself down? I don't see a power indicator on the Apple keyboard, so can't tell easily when it's powered down or not.)
