i'm having the same problem. The Apple Store recommends purchasing the D-Link DBT-120, but doesn't actually sell it since it has been superceded by the DBT-122 in Europe. Apple should know this. While D-Link market the DBT-122 as the replacement for the DBT-120 that is also compatible with Macs, from what i have been able to find out the 120 and the 122 use different chipsets and OSX cannot recognize all the features of the DBT-122's firmware. That is also why OSX's firmware updater software doesn't work with the DBT-122.
Like you, i can get the DBT-122 to work with either the keyboard or mouse but not both at the same time.
In any case even if you got both the keyboard and mouse working wirelessly there would be no way of waking the computer from sleep since the 'allow bluetooth device to wake computer from sleep' option is greyed out - this is only available if the firmware is supported. Presumably Apple will have to release software to support the DBT-122, if the earlier model is no longer in production. I think both Apple and D-Link are at fault here.
I think it unlikely that Apple will release a firmware update for the 122 - they are only really interested in getting you to buy new Macs with BT built in.
Although I sympathise with you on this I was easily able to buy the supported 120 model on ebay a couple of days ago for my sister - In fact there are two of them on there today, and a 122 that is marketed as Windows only............
D-Link will not do anything to help either as the days of USB BT adapters are numbered.
