Windows 7: How to wake Win7 from Bluetooth Keyboard

How to wake Win7 from Bluetooth Keyboard

I have Windows 7 installed on my Asrock Ion 330 system as a HTPC. It works great. I am using a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard with a BT dongle that goes in the Asrock's USB port. Well I am not able to wake the PC from Sleep mode with the BT keyboard. I have another Logitech wireless keyboard that uses a USB 27 Mhz receiver that is able to wake the computer from sleep. So I don't think it's an issue with my USB hubs not being powered in sleep and thus able to wake the system. The keyboard that is able to wake the computer does have a On/OFF button in the corner whereas the BT one does not. I don't know if this has anything to do with it. Curiously under Device Manager when I look at the two keyboard properties the wireless one has a Power Management tab with an option to wake from sleep which is checked, whereas the BT keyboard does not have a Power Management tab available. I am wondering if this is a problem inherent in BT, or if I need to get a new BT dongle, or what.

Thank you for your help!
