Hey guys,

I have a pretty simple question. I'm planning on getting the logitech s530 wireless desktop set to use with my macbook in clamshell mode. This set uses RF wireless, not bluetooth.

Basically, will I be able to use the keyboard and/or mouse to wake up the macbook from sleep (when it's closed)? I'll leave the receiver and monitor plugged in.

Thanks for you help guys!

This review says that it does...see "left side" #1 under "extra keys on keyboard":

1.) Computer power off. It won't work for power on, since if your computer is off it can't see the keyboard. It does work to wake up my system from sleep, as does pressing any key.
