Thanks for asking the question! I would expect the behavior to be the same between the two. We saw the same review, and are trying to contact that customer to figure out what’s keeping keyboards and mice attached through the powered hub from waking his system, and if we can solve it.
We do know there are reports of similar issues with powered hubs in general on the iMac – the iMac seems to be having special problems in this area. See http://discussions.apple.com/message… for discussion.
And we know some Macs are fine. I have a MacBook here running 10.6.5, and there is definitely no problem waking the Mac with either keyboard or mouse, from either our 7 or 10 port hubs.
Part of the reason Apple may not be moving quickly on this is the alternative is to use the power button or a USB device connected directly to the system to wake it.
A quick proposal – If you’re willing to test and then work with us if you hit any problems with the 10 port hub on your iMac, I’d like to send you a free unit. If you’re interested, just email your shipping address and phone number to email@example.com, and we’ll get one headed to you.
Either way, we’ll follow up here with the results for the benefit of everyone else.
Thanks again for posting,
