Windows 10: Only the Power Button Wakes PC from Sleep Solved

    Only the Power Button Wakes PC from Sleep


    My system: Win 10 64 bit Retail, MSI B150M Mortar, Intel i5-6500, Samsung 512GB SSD, Corsair 2 x 4 GB Memory, etc.

    Although my keyboard and mouse are allowed to wake the PC from sleep (in Device Manager), they don't wake the PC. Interestingly, pressing the "Power Button" on my Fractal R5 case does wake it up from sleep. Any idea about what's going on?

    You also need to access the BIOS and setup to allow Wakeup from Keyboard/Mouse
    NOTE: If you have a USB keyboard then you also need to setup for USB to wake up.
