    Are you using any adapters or hubs to connect the PS2 keyboard?

    For now, you might see if this below may help.

    No, no adapters or hubs. (It is the laptops integral keyboard.) And I'm afraid that the link didn't help either. But I have made some progress. In Account Settings:

    • If I specify that sign-in is required when the PC wakes from sleep, the keyboard and touchpad will only wake the PC after at least 1 minute.
    • If instead I specify that sign-in is never required, the keyboard and touchpad will wake the PC almost immediately.

    But I would like the keyboard and touchpad to wake the PC almost immediately even if sign-in is required.

    Oddly my new HP ProBook has no power tab in device manager to wake from the keyboard or touchpad nor is this shown using the powercfg commands. I can only use the power button or close the lid. Why is this functionality so limited?

    Because your laptop uses modern standby.

    I assume you mean it sleeps so soundly using so little power that the only way to wake it is by the power button?
