Re: Kakashi DID know he had MS
Before I start, just to clear things up, are you trying to say that Kakashi and Sasuke knew they had it but couldn't use them?

If Kakashi knew he had the potential to use MS, then he would have began training his chakra levels immediately. Why would Kakashi throw his MS in the shelf and wait to train his body to use it until he got beaten half to death? Someone of Kakashi's caliber would make use of any advantages that he has. He would have utilized his MS if he knew he had it. This is where my argument comes in. Just because we, the viewers, saw Kakashi unlocking his MS doesn't mean he himself realized it. It's completely possible for him to have not realized it because he fainted, literally, moments later. If you were drained of energy and was about to pass out I doubt you'd remember everything that happened moments before.
For Sasuke, if he knew he had the Sharingan then he would have trained himself to master it. Why, you say? Because he still had a goal: To become stronger than Itachi. Ever since the Uchiha Massacre he made it his life's mission to gain strength in any way possible. He wouldn't knowingly let such a powerful tool like the Sharingan go to waste. Again, if he knew he had it, then he would have trained himself to master it. Just like Kakashi, Sasuke fainted moments after unlocking his Sharingan. It's entirely possible that he just did not know he had it.
