  • KM570 (Red LED) - LEDs only work on startup?

    I'm having an issue with my KM570 Red LED (not RGB) keyboard. The LEDs only seem to work if the keyboard is plugged in on start up. If I unplug the USB cable and then plug it back in, none of the LEDs work. Note, this ONLY happens on Mac OSX, which I know is not officially supported but there's no software so it should just be plug and play. The RGB version works fine in the above scenarios and the RED version works fine on Windows and Linux when unplugging and plugging back in. I've got around it by a) Either restarting or b) Loading a windows VM in virtual box . Does anybody have any insight on why this may be happening?

    Firmware version 21.
    Model KM570 (RED Leds) MX Brown switches.
