Hi,

I tried 2x Buffalo and 2x PCI bluetooth dongles, and Buffalo BT works out of the box and PCI works but sometimes will disapera from system profiler. The issue that I have with Buffalo is that when my hackintosh is in sleep mode, it deos not wake up with Apple Wireless Keyboard or Mouse.

Do you know any Brand/Model of bluetooth dongle locally that works with sleep? Please let know.

Thanks in advance.

I use a bluetooth module from a macbook with a 5v-3.3v dc converter connected to a USB header on my motherboard.
I never had any luck with using dongles, the ones that did work would not wake the system.

There is a guide on here somewhere of how to do it.
I think I spent about £15 to put it together with bits from eBay + a few bits of cable braid and some heat shrink to make it all look nice.

iOGear 2.1 bluetooth dongle works well in Mountain Lion, and worked well in 10.7 too.
I use it with the apple wireless keyboard and trackpad, no issues, recognized right away.
