    Hello,

    This is the method I use to achieve what you want.
    1. Open Device Manager from a right click on the start button.
    2. Find the mouse driver and double click it to open properties
    3. Go to the Power management tab and tick allow this device to wake the computer

    Thanks for the reply. On Windows 10 , there is no tab for Power management-see attached screen shot

    But your Device manager shows 2 drivers are installed, which one is being used? Does the other one have a Power management tab?

    For some unknown reason both my mouse drivers do not have the power management drive. Surely this should be standard with Windows 10

    Yes your correct, you could try uninstalling both mouse drivers, then re-install drivers to see if that changes your options.

    Just had to do exactly that with my Logitech mouse. Power Management is back...
