    Well I have a baseline 27" iMac released in May, and it won't wake up from sleep for some reason, the only way to wake it is by pressing the power button, there was a graphics card update this morning, but the problem still persist, I think its a bluetooth problem

    Check your preferences to make sure you have allowed Bluetooth devices to wake up you Mac (I think they are under Energy Saver settings but I'm on my MBA so I don't have such settings).

    Repair permissions and do SMC and PRAM resets.

    Do you get an error when you force it to restart?

    My same machine some-times does this and it blames it on a Blue tooth error.

    (The update did squat to fix it)
    When I use a corded mouse (still with the blue-tooth keyboard) i don't get the problem.
