Honestly I would start over fresh. Use the Mechdrew guide from the attached link. Take notes as you go through the process if anything does seem to match the guide and post back.

Sleep is working, ( I thought I'd disable the USB legacy in BIOS) so it's almost at 100%.
I can't seem to get my Dell Bluetooth headphones to activate, they only pair up.
CodF4ther- I may just take your advice,[On a clean install] btw I did follow Mechdrew's Install Method the first time.
If I can't get the Headphones to work, by later today, I'll run it again tonight.
I would prefer not to restart when I've gotten this close, but it seems much easier now, then it did when I first did it.
underwhelmed- Its definitely a Retail Disc, I found the receipt from the Apple store, it says retail 10.5.4 right on it, they only added a Sticker to the 10.5.6 according to the sales Rep I called. It looks like the disc on the top on this link: What is Retail? | FAQ | OS X | mechdrew

Well I don't know about the sticker, but the NBI/NBM was designed to work with 10.5.6 and up. Newest version has dropped Leopard support regardless so I would go with a fresh install of SL myself.
I initially tried to just upgrade from a DellEFI Leopard install and had numerous issues. Did a fresh install and now everything works as it should.
