ugh thats dissapointing.
I really hope to have both sleep and a full working magicmouse.

hmmmmm You guys are both on a EX58-UD5 - but might not be related to that. hmm

I know!

I'm going to do some more testing and see if I can pinpoint exactly what is causing the problem...

Interestingly on my 10.5.8 install (with Magic Mouse driver installed) sleep works fine. In 10.5.8 the momentum scroll isn't supported I wonder if the driver for this in Snow Leopard could be responsible!?

Cosmin Petre are you on Snow Leopard or regular Leopard?

I have two installs on different disks, 10.6.1. and 10.5.8 both with cham rc3 and sleepenabler.kext

After installing Magic Mouse software on 10.5.8 everything continues to work well. On 10.6.1, sleep doesn't work after MM install (goes to sleep but hangs on wake)

No sleep here too.

Haven't rolled back yet - momentum scroll is just too good to miss out on!

Hoep there's a fix or workaround soon.

FYI I'm using a DBT120 dongle



Thanks for that :( , good to know changing the dongle won't fix things so I won't worry myself trying to find a DBT120

would be interesting hear what real Mac Pro owners without the built in Bluetooth option discover when they use the Magic Mouse with a usb Bluetooth dongle. I. e. if there is support for such a configuration.

Anyways, I will have to wait a few more days for my mouse -- would be cool if you guys continue to post your discoveries. ;)

i was at my applestore today and they don't have it yet, hopefully by the end of the week :) . However, i've tried a cheap wireless mouse before with usb receiver and it just lags i can't have it move correctly even after using disabler.kext in leo or snow (in ubuntu it works). With a bluetooth dongle and the magic mouse could i have the same problem? I don't want to buy it and after see that i can't use it.

On my ex58-ud5 having gotten used to the MM I think it's great, no lag whatever. I think you also need to develop a
different style for using the mouse, half mouse, half touch pad.

Only issue is sleep, I read that it works on some real macs, but others have issues with it waking up straight away which happens to me occasionally.

If anyone is considering buying a bluetooth adapter get the one apple recommends, the D-Link DBT-120 (Rev B2)


I concur. I have that exact bluetooth adapter and it works flawlessly in Leopard and Snow Leopard.

Does it support sleep/wake with Magic Mouse and latest update ? Someone else with one of these posted that it didn't.
Nice to have a confirmation of a working sleep/wake

Sleep kind of works in 64bit mode, wakes up a few seconds later the first time. On waking the scroll feature doesn't work.
Subsequent sleeps do work though. Sounds like the dongle is a composite device and it gets broken the first sleep, allowing subsequent sleeps to work. The breaking of the device simulating a usb removal and wake up
(should be fixable?)

Having been working in 64 bit mode, if you boot back into 32 bit mode you get the same behaviour

Kind of fixed ...


Removed SleepEnabler and NullCPUManagement kexts from EFI/Extra/Extensions and rebooted in 64 bit

sleep is better behaved. scrolling lost on wake but if you remove the dongle and reinsert it then scrolling
works again

This is for i7 cpu on EX58-UD5 board

Nice!
We still need cleaner solution though.

I love the mouse, and I really want to buy it. Now I use a mighty mouse (wired) because I didn't have bluetooth. Now I found a compatible bluetooth dongle (according to the OSX86 wiki, it's plug and play) and I was wondering if the Magic mouse will work with a external bluetooth dongle on OSX86? If that is the case, I will buy it :).



i picked up one at tesco tecknica and it paired up with the mouse lik a charm
on p6t se mobo

no wake on sleep tho!!

Interesting... Sleep working in SL? What rev is your DBT 120? Mine is revB4 and it works in Leopard but not Snow Leopard.

Hi all,

I'm about to purchase one.

To confirm does the magic mouse software update stop you all waking from sleep with just the mouse? Or are you unable to wake from sleep at all?

I ask this because I use the power button to wake from sleep.

Thanks.

Tony: can you wake your system from sleep with it ?
Is sleep working for you?
Please tell us your system specs.

Using BTExplorer on the dongle it seems that when it sleeps/wakes all the BT services are lost (composite class of device is zero)

Pulling it out/in then restarts them

I'm also interested if you have sleep working Tony.
