Yes, the keyboard was plugged into the dongle.

BTW, I always leave mine that way so I don't loose the dongle.

I can keep typing. The text is entered where the insertion point was
when I turned it off.

If you are infering that if a insertion point (carat) is present, then
yes I agree.

However, not all apps automatically have an insertion point (carat). On
those, you have to manually select an insertion point, which then a carat
appears, before you can type in characters.
