    Stay in sleep and wake with spacebar


    I can't figure out how to adjust the power plan in Windows 10 to achieve this:

    - After I press the power button to put the computer in Sleep mode, I'd like the computer to stay in Sleep mode even after multiple hours and not go to hibernation or switch off.

    - I'd also like to be able to wake the computer by just pressing the spacebar

    Thanks

    Hi, you can disable hibernation if you wish:

    This depends what devices are able to wake your PC. You can list these:

    Powercfg /devicequery /.......
    Description:
    Returns a list of devices that meet the specified criteria.

    Parameter List:
    <QUERYFLAG> Specifies one of the following criteria:

    wake_from_S1_supported ....Return all devices that support waking the system
    from a light sleep state.
    wake_from_S2_supported ....Return all devices that support waking the system
    from a deeper sleep state.
    wake_from_S3_supported ....Return all devices that support waking the system
    from the deepest sleep state.
    wake_from_any ......................Return all devices that support waking the system
    from any sleep state.

    S1_supported List devices supporting light sleep.
    S2_supported List devices supporting deeper sleep.
    S3_supported List devices supporting deepest sleep.
    S4_supported List devices supporting hibernation.
    wake_programmable List devices that are user-configurable to wake
    the system from a sleep state.
    wake_armed List devices that are currently configured to
    wake the system from any sleep state.
    all_devices Return all devices present in the system.

    Examples:
    POWERCFG /DEVICEQUERY wake_armed

    The ability to wake up a computer by hitting the spacebar (or other keys on the keyboard) is often an option that needs to be enabled or disabled in BIOS. On my desktop computer, for example, I need to go into the power management options and select Wake Up Event by BIOS settings.

    If you PC supports a deep sleep mode, then wake via the keyboard may not be possible
