    Yes. Go Under your Bluetooth Preferences and then click on Advanced. There you can check a box that says "Allow Bluetooth Device to Wake This Computer.

  • If you have your Mac set up to be woken up by Bluetooth devices (The option isn't in system preferences, but I don't remember where), then yes
