Like you I've just got hold of a Dell Mini 10v & installed OS X a few weeks ago. Its actually my first non-Apple computer.
Anyway, I had the same problems you mention, but found a solution in these forums.
For the Sleep Issue you need to disable "legacy USB support" in the BIOS.
So hold F2 when you boot & see the dell logo. Then change the option "legacy USB support" to *disabled*
For your keyboard, open the "Keyboard Viewer". At the top yours probably says "US" even though you have British set in keyboard layouts.
To fix this you need to find a new keyboard layout file which you place in:
I needed a japanese one, but you need the british one - check this thread.
New Keyboard Layout
Several people have created custom layouts you can download, so check through that thread.
After downloading & placing the file in /Library/Keyboard Layouts you will find a new option in your system prefs, language input,.

Thanks for the info. I had already done the above due to how the OS x install said to do it..
Not done the keyboard yet but mine is showing as british but will look more into it.
Are you having any issues with internet. sometimes it will start to load a webpage then will hang sometimes not starting again or will carry on. gets about to just after the http://www bit
I have a Xbox 360 webcam and that works in skype so not to bad only cost Â£6 secondhand, the built in one works but just popped it in to try...
I dropped on this dell 10v for only Â£125 with 6 months warranty and its like new, hard drive is only dated Nov 09 so not to bad...
