Dongles are not the greatest in my experience. Why not fit a Bluetooth card in the Mac Pro? Simply a matter of a couple of screws and connecting inbuilt aerial.

In a FW800 inbuilt Bluetooth enables wireless keyboard and mouse to boot DiskWarrior, Apple Hardware Test etc whereas an adapter will not, requiring wired k/b and mouse. Here is a link and they are pretty cheap and add value at time of change over:-
