So i bought a bluetooth keyboard and a seperate mouse from trademe and it works but its driving me crazy.

They both seem to come standard with an annoying battery saving feature which turns them off after a period of inactivity.
Only 50% of the time does wiggling the mouse or keyboard get the connection back.

Im looking for something that works flawlessly so i can use mouse and type on my SGS3

I have not tried one but I would go for a well known brand with good reviews on Android. Logitech meets both criteria. There may be others.

I have that one, works well. Difficult to purchase in NZ though because Logitech do not sell that particular model here. Can be had quite cheaply from Ebay though.

I show that particular keyboard in this video (use nav links in the description to jump to the relevant bit): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9MSX10RZRE

It doesn't solve your combined mouse and keyboard requirements, but I picked up a Microsoft Wedge keyboard last week off TM for a third of what they sell for in the shops and it is beautiful.

Very easy to type on, the keyboard only powers off when the cover is applied (AFAIK) and when off the cover is a stand for your tablet.

I love it.

Do you mind if I ask how much you got it for?

Are there any combos available with the mouse as well. I see MS do a wedge mouse too.
