Wake on Bluetooth?

Hi, I was caused to register in these boards so that to ask the following question: (*exactly* because nobody seems to have the answer - anywhere on the Internet)

How is it possible to wake my Windows 7 PC through the use of a bluetooth device?
According to the this: Bluetooth Remote Wake Test (Windows) , Windows have been compatible with this function since the time of Windows Vista. I can't see why I should not be able to wake my PC through my bluetooth device/adapter, every other of my USB devices can (and did) wake up my PC...

Honestly, I don't see why nobody else tried this. Macintosh computers have this since early 2005, I just hope that I won't have to change to Mac for something as silly/small as this (yet it's quite a big of an ommission if Microsoft -indeed- have given us no way to wake our machines on Bluetooth circa 2011).
