    Only the Power Button Wakes PC from Sleep - Laptop


    I check the bios, and there is nothing about using the keyboard to wake up the cpu from sleep.

    If your computer does not support Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI), the earlier steps may not be available. In this case, you have press the power button to wake the computer.
