Breaking standby with remote/cordless keyboard

Recommended Posts

I usually off my computer into S3. I used to have a corded keyboard which could wake the computer with any key. I've now replaced that with a cordless PS2 keyboard the BTC 9019URF. It is USB. The manual suggests it can wake the computer from sleep.

Have had success with waking the computer with either the DVICO remote or the keyboard. Any ideas?

(All "wake" options in bios are set to enabled - eg. Wake on PCI call, Wake on USB, Wake on PS2 keyboard....)

For future reference, as a minimum you will need to open the Device Manager, browse to the Keyboard section, select the "HID Keyboard Device" that corresponds to the BTC keyboard, select Properties, go to the Power Management tab, then select "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standy".

You might also need to do the same with the USB Root Hub entry that corresponds to the hub that the keyboard is plugged in to (as well as disabling the ability of the PC to power down the device to consume power).
