Back up and reinstall. Do a retail installation: distros are prone to present annoying issues (you're just the last one of an endless list of examples) and only the creator of the distro can give you proper support, otherwise you are on your own. A retail copy of Mountain Lion costs only twenty bucks: that's only two big mac combos, so you ditch going to Mc Donalds twice and get both a healthier hackintosh and little less cholesterol in your blood.

Best regards.

I have same problem on my mountain lion of retail installation. I think it is not only the fault of distros.
With sleep enabler kext, it wake from sleep within few seconds. I saw the wake reason : GBE, EHC2, EHCI.

There are many thread regarding this. I have read on forum for that anyone must have working speedstep, patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement & proper DSDT :D .
