Yes, nothing happens over USB other than charging. It's slightly 
irritating since I have to keep something else to hand for booting, or try 
and get a dongle that goes into a HID proxy mode.

That said, I quite like it as a keyboard and happily use it for working 
all day. Interestingly the bluetooth version is nicer to type on than the 
USB version, even though they look physically identical. This could be 
they came from different batches rather than using better keys for the 
Bluetooth version.
