I have just installed a Sonnet PCI Express USB card. If you install one of these USB expansion cards, the MacPro will not wake from sleep - I found this out the hard way. Now I have to have a permanently awake Mac.
Apple are aware of this problem, but their USB drivers remain incapable of dealing with this it. There is as far as I know, no workaround, according to Sonnet. It details the problem on its site.
It really is a shame that a machine I am smitten by, has such a basic problem - Especially as it is to all intents an Intel machine.
Just be aware of this quirk - I will say however, that the extra ports work absolutely fine, so I just have my Mac always awake, and turn it off when I am not using it. Boots pretty fast anyway.
