    Waking My Laptop Up From Sleep

    Basically I have been using a very good desktop with Windows Vista Ultimate up to now along with a Logitech Wireless Laser Dinovo bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
    When I had the desktop I used to be able to press the sleep button on the keyboard, the PC would sleep and then I would be able to press any button on the keyboard to wake it up.

    I have now sold the desktop and moved over to using my M1330 solely, the M1330 is connected to my Dell 2408 24" monitor, with the laptop lid closed. I am basically using it as a desktop.

    But now when I press the Sleep button, all functions as normal but to wake up the M1330 from sleep I have to press the Power button on the M1330, neither the laptop or DiNovo keyboard will wake up the laptop.

    This is obviously a problem as I like to have the laptop closed and I have to get up, open the lid and press the power button every time to wake it up.

    So basically is there anyway that I can make it wake up with the keyboard like my old desktop?

    I have update the Logitech keyboard and mouse drivers, initially I thought it was because of Bluetooth being asleep but not even the laptop keyboard wakes it.

    I have tried to change the Power Save settings in Device manager and done the Wake on USB Enabled in the BIOS.

    Alternatively, is there another keyboard which has a specific "ON" button?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Firstly, I'm presuming that your running a Windows operating system, and probably XP at that.

    Secondly, have you checked your power options to see if hibernation is enabled, and if so after how long of being in sleep mode it goes into hibernation.

    If it is enabled, disable it; this will keep your laptop in sleep mode indefinitely or until the battery runs out if running on battery power and prevent it from hibernating.

    The only down side of disabling hibernation mode, if it's enabled in the first place, is that if your running on battery power and your battery runs out, then your current session and anything you were working on will be lost, unless saved or caught by the auto-recover feature in Microsoft Office applications.

    If hibernation is enabled then after a specified amount of time or when your battery becomes low, your session will be saved to disk and your laptop shut down to prevent data loss and to save your active session.

    Hope this helps

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    I am using Windows Vista Ultimate.

    I am not using Hibernation, I press on sleep and try to wake it up immediately but it doesn't work. I have always used sleep in the past.

    Anyone any ideas?

    Your lucky that sleep even works for you. I have vista Home Premium on my system 1 below, and when I click sleep the screen goes black, the LED fans keep spinning, and two red LED's light up on the 4850. Nothing makes it come out of sleep mode, so I have to hard reset it
