  1. External keyboard and mouse are waking up the Laptop


    Hello,I have a problem regarding sleep state on my laptop. I am using laptop in docking setup and have external mouse and keyboard. I want to put laptop to sleep state when I am now working. I disabled keyboard and mouse to be able to wake it up. To be exact I do not have any device that can do so at the moment but my computer is still waking from sleep if I move the mouse around or press any key on keyboard.I am using Windows 11 and Yoga7 laptop if that helps.Thank you for your help in advance!If you need any further details please let me know. and I will be happy to share it.

    :)

  2. Keyboard and mouse refuses to wake laptop

    The keyboard nor mouse will wake this wonderful MSI laptop. In the Power Management for the Keyboard & Mouse, both the "Allow this device to wake the computer" box is checked & yet only the Power Button wakes it up. Any suggestions to relieve this great stress?

  3. Using laptop as desktop - can't wake it from sleep with wireless mouse or keyboard.

    • I'm having a very difficult time following the narrative in your last five (5) replies.
    I've tried to be as clear and concise as possible.



    • Have you or have you not installed Avast Free?
    I hadn't uninstalled it, only deactivated it; but just now I did uninstall it, then re-booted the laptop, put it to sleep and tried to wake it using the mouse. No luck.

    • You just posted: "Just now, I disconnected the mouse, keyboard and monitor; manually put it to sleep using the Start Menu icons (because the lid action is still set to do nothing); closed the lid; and when I opened the lid it woke up."
    • So the Notebook PC (laptop) "wakes up" now as long as the external devices (i.e., mouse; keyboard; monitor) are not connected to the ASUS device, is that correct?
    Mouse and keyboard connected or disconnected doesn't have any effect on what happens:

    - Opening the lid wakes the laptop.

    - If the lid is already open and I put the laptop to sleep, pressing the power button wakes up the laptop.

    - Lid open or closed, if I put the laptop to sleep and try to wake it using the mouse or keyboard, nothing happens.

  4. External keyboard and mouse are waking up the Laptop

    Allow mouse or keyboard to wake computer

    I'm using Windows 10 Pro on my laptop, which is connected to an external monitor.

    After starting my laptop, the lid is closed. When I step away from the computer for an hour or so, it goes to sleep and the monitor screen is blank. When I return, I should be able to press the SHIFT key on my keyboard or move my mouse to wake up the laptop
    but it doesn't work. I have to open the lid on my laptop and press the power button and then it wakes up immediately.

    My last 5 computer (all laptops) have been set up the same way with the external monitor and keeping the lid closed - I've never had any problems waking up the computer with the keyboard or mouse.

    How do I fix this?
