    Using my 2009 MB Pro on a Alubase vertical stand and connected to a Apple Cinemas HD monitor and BT keyboard and mouse. Very good looking setup however just struggling with one aspect.

    I have enabled allow bluetooth devices to wake computer and also changed the setting so the power button on the displays wakes/sleeps the computer. However, if I actually put the MB to sleep. Neither the keyboard nor mouse will wake it from sleep! Nothing happens with I press on the power button on monitor neither!

    The only way I found that'll wake computer is to either take it from the base and open the lid or plug something into USB.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    You have power plugged in to the laptop? Macs won't wake with the lid closed unless the power adapter is attached.
