    power management tab is gone from device manager


    my clean install messed up my computer.
    The power manager tab is missing in device manager, I did a google and found a fix for it that suggested a key for it. But the key was already there, in Regedit.
    what can I do? I have my computer on the floor and can´t reach down every to wake it up from sleep mode. Yes, the power button still works.

    Hello,

    Usually, when there's not a Power Management tab available in Device Manager, it means the device doesn't support it.

    For now, you might see if this below may help to ID the device you want to allow to wake the device.

    - for which device?

    Your Dell 7250 seems to be from around 2015.

    An outside possibility is that the clean install has provided a driver different to the one you were using. Try using the specific driver for the particular device in question shown on your manufacturer's driver download page.

    Thank you very much for your reply.


    I can't possibly guess what your PC model is unless you specify it- my crystal ball is down for scheduled maintenance.
    . and it worked before the clean install.
    I know. Reread my post.

    I asked a question. No reply.

    If you like, you could test by reinstalling the driver or software for the mouse as dalchina posted to see if you may be able to enable wake by mouse afterwards.

    oh, this mouse is the cheapest kind with no software. I´m getting a Logitech MX-3 and hopefully, I will be able to wake it up with that one. Thank you
