Christian; This is apparently in some ideal world? 

Let me assure you that as a fan of wireless keyboards and mice, there are 
large percentages of the time when something goes aglay, when that 
cannot be done, as there is no response to the keyboard.  In most of 
those cases, the hardware reset button is the only recourse available to 
the system owner, me.
