    Have to tap keyboard many times to wake after sleep.


    I have a new HP EliteBook laptop running Windows 10. Peripheral USB keyboard and mouse. On my old Windows 7 EliteBook, I could just tap the space bar or move the mouse and the computer would wake. Now, on the new one, it only works if I tap the keyboard many times - I'd say somewhere between 10 and 20. If I tap it just once or a few times, nothing happens; it just stays asleep. The mouse and keyboard both have lights to indicate whether they're active. The light on the mouse is always on, even when the computer is sleeping. The light on the keyboard comes on corresponding to the computer waking (after 10 - 20 taps). Not sure if that's relevant, but just in case...

    :)

    wake from sleep issue in windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your reply. Apologize for the delay in response.

    I suggest you to check which devices are configured to wake up the computer from sleep by following the steps below:

    • Right click on Start icon and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type the command line below:
    Powercfg /devicequery wake_armed

    3. Check if the devices (Keyboard, Mouse, Ethernet cable) are listed.

    If the system is not going to sleep and going to Hybernate, the only option to wake up is to press the Power button.

    Hope the information is helpful.
