Windows 10: Wake from Sleep with Touch Pad and Keyboard
Wake from Sleep with Touch Pad and Keyboard
Hi, I'm new to the forums and I need help waking my laptop with my in-built touch pad and keyboard. To do so I need to enable a setting on my Touch Pad and Keyboard driver/device properties, which should be located underneath the 'Power Management' tab. However, there is no such tab. I have also tried to use the 'powercfg -deviceenablewake' command, with Admin rights, to no avail. Please help me! This is causing major headaches when I my laptop goes to sleep!
Note: I have recently installed Windows 10, as my old HDD 'failed', installed/updated all my drivers, disabled hibernation mode and am using all in-built components (ie: no USB keyboard/mouse).
You won't find driver properties there.
Right click start and select device manager, then go to your KB and Mouse items, right click and select properties, but I've looked at mine for my laptop, and there is no power management tab there.
Are you sure it may not be asking you to check a BIOS setting for power management to allow KB/mse to wake it?
By default KB /mse should wake it with no further action.
List your laptop make, model, screenshot of device manager with what's listed for KB and mse.

How I wake mine from sleep is
When I open the lid
Which you can set up under Power Options
Go to Settings
Power and Sleep
Then Additional Settings
Then set it up there
My laptop is an ASUS X55LA. I have attached both photos and yes, I was referring to the device manager. BTW there is no 'Power Management' settings in my BIOS.
There is no setting for 'Close Lid Action' which is probably what you are referring to.

In Power Options
Choose what closing the lid does
If it is already open
Then just touching the space bar wakes mine up
The lid closing setting and the Mouse/Keyboard wake up capability are completely unrelated.
Perhaps is is not sleeping but hibernating.
Launch and elevated Command Prompt and enter the following command (there is no output)
powercfg /h off
Then restart it
I have already disabled hibernation, but alas I will try again.
