Default Wireless USB Keyboard and Standby

It seems I am unable to bring my computer out of standby with either my keyboard or mouse. Both are from a Logitech package called the MX Duo (Very nice btw). I checked the BIOS and USB keyboard support (pre-windows) is enabled, and USB Keyboard Wake-up from standby is also available. Is it because it's wireless that it won't work? Kinda disturbing to know I can't put my computer in standby anymore. Thanks in advance.

What happens when you go to your PC in standby mode and hit Enter. I have a set of wireless logitech devices also and it works just fine. I hit enter though and it comes up in about 20 seconds...

I tried Preet2u's suggestion already, and that didn't work. As for who posted earlier, I tell them system to go to standby. It does everything it's supposed to and goes silent, like it should. However, I try to bring it out of standby and nothing happens. I can press any key or move the mouse wherever I want and nothing will happen. It's like my computer commits suicide or something. I end up having to push the power button, which causes the computer to flush it's RAM and restart... I'm not too sure why it's not working. The only thing I can think of is that when it goes into standby, it cuts the power to the wireless reciever (AKA no lights on the little grey stand). I don't guess I have a way to tell the computer to keep that one USB port alive, so I guess I'm dead in the water. Thanks anyway.

It's on the link I gave for my case. It doesn't have any jumpers for keeping USB ports alive, and I don't feel like connecting my wireless keyboard and mouse up through the keyboard and mouse ports. Not my most favorite thing in the world.
