    Hi everybody, I'm thinking about getting a D-Link DBT-120 Bluetooth adapter*for my Powerbook Ti, and was wondering - if I get this, could I wake my Powerbook from sleep using the wireless keyboard or mouse? If not, any suggestions as to what adapter would let me wake from sleep from a wireless keyboard?

    Second question, related to the first. Can any of you recommend a good wireless keyboard and mouse combo that is somehow rechargeable (mouse at least) and that is more affordable than buying Apple's hardware?

    Thanks.

    I just bought a powerbook and am also wondering about bluetooth mice and keyboards.

    Yes, you can. I used that same set up when I had my Ti book and it worked great. The keyboard would always wake, the mouse was the only one that gave me some issue, but it did work for most of the time.

    I would check out logitech bluetooth mouse and keyboards, I think they have a kit that can charge. I personally really like the apple keyboard and mouse.

    But you can get it to work with the mouse, then? Not the keyboard? But at least one of them will wake it?

    Are you sure you are using the newest D-Link adapter with the newest software because it will make a difference when it comes to waking the powerbook.

    I remember that d-link updated their bluetooth adapter and the new one is the one that will work with the mouse and keyboard, I do not know how old your adapter is but the one that I bought worked great compared to the older one from a few years ago that I used.
