Lots of mobos have jumpers that you must set to enable/disable +5VSB for the various USB headers and sometimes the KB and PS2 mouse ports. Your mobo manual will list these.

depends on whether the PC can wake up via USB, as BlueTooth dongles are almost always USB...even the internal BlueTooth controllers on OEM PCs.
Some can, some can't. If they didn't wire the USB to the +5VSB power source it won't work.

So, if the USB is powered then a bluetooth keyboard (connected with usb-bluetooth dongle) can wake the PC?

Turns out for my purposes, this doesn't work since the bluetooth keyboard I'm using needs to have an application running on the PC to communicate with the keyboard. Therefore the PC has to already be on.
