    Well I will give it a go.

    It may take me a while.

    It is the wake-up you are interested in right? Or you have a problem with shutdown as well?

    Putting it to sleep didnt work either. More interested in wake up though.

    Depending on your os/device it may work for you, as mentioned im trying on Linx 1010 tablet

    Perhaps it just isn't possible (perhaps it is because I need a fingerprint to resume from sleep and perhaps you have some similar biometric required).

    Why do you want to do it?

    I'll try if you have a decent reason - it seems a odd thing to want to do (sorry to say that).

    It could be HTG are just wrong and it is impossible of course.

    Thanks for trying.

    I use the tablets for a business I have and only have remote access to them, I would like to turn the tablets off at night or put to sleep to cause less damage to the battery. So would be great to have something to put to sleep and wake up automatically

    You are welcome, sorry it didn't work.

    Surely you can just schedule them to sleep (or just turn off the screen). They will wake up if someone prods them (although being already awake and visible may be your issue).

    Worst case, don't worry about battery - just leave them on. You'll buy new ones before the battery dies.
