USB Bluetooth dongle + Magic Trackpad not waking MP 1,1

I have an IOGear USB Bluetooth adapter and am using it with my Magic Trackpad which works fine except to wake the Mac from sleep. This same combo works fine on my Hackintosh so I know it can work, I find it odd that on a real Mac is doesn't. I'm running 10.7.5 on both. On both the Apple and the Hack neither MT has the option of allowing it to wake the Mac, it's grayed out on both yet it works on one and not on the other.

Ideas?

Known problem. See post 14-15 from this thread:

I've never seen a solution.

I have a wireless mouse (not bluetooth) that won't wake the computer. I just hit the space bar on the keyboard or the power button on the front of the computer.

Cool, thanks for the link. I too have been pressing the spacebar, certainly not the end of the world. I still find it odd that the same BT dongle works on my Hack but not on a Mac. Oh well at least the trackpad works fine and thats all that really matters.

Well you could try removing your MP's internal bluetooth card. Perhaps OS X is giving that "priority" over the USB one. That could be the difference between your hack and the mac.

No onboard BT or WiFi, I added both 3rd Party.
