    Wakeup using wireless keyboard

    I am using a Logitech wireless keyboard and a mouse and would like to wakeup my laptop using the keyboard keys. Every time I have to wake up my Dell Latitude 7420 laptop using its inbuilt keyboard which requires opening the laptop and then pressing the keys to wakeup. I would like to use my wireless keyboard to wakeup my laptop. I wanted to enable this function in device manager but the checkbox to allow wakeup is disabled. Could you please help me by telling me how I can enable this checkbox and wakeup my laptop using my wireless keyboard ? I am using Windows 10 OS.

  3. Wireless keyboard not working

    Hi Arthur,

    Thank you for your response.

    I suggest you to connect the keyboard to a different computer and check if it works.

    Apart from wireless keyboard, I would also suggest you to connect wired keyboard to the computer and check the status.

    If issue still persists, try the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    Check in compatibility mode.

    Download the keyboard drivers from your computer manufacture website for Windows 10.

    Follow these steps to install the drivers in compatibility mode and check if that helps.

    • Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website.
    • Right-click on the driver setup file and click on ‘properties’.
    • Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed
      with the installation.
    • Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.

    Hope the information helps, if you have any further queries, feel free to post. We are here to assist you.

    Wakeup using wireless keyboard

    Best wireless gaming keyboard?

    Why would you move away from the reciever? Do you like to ride around your room on your wheelie-chair while gaming or something? *Confused Wakeup using wireless keyboard :confused:

    And I do play fast paced FPSs and I 100% guarantee you, cross my heart hope to die, swear on my mother's grave, that there is noooooooooooo lag at all. None. Nada. Zilch.

    Because 'serious' gamers are uninformed about the accuracy of modern wireless systems and believe (like yourself and Shibdib) that wired will be more accurate, which is not the case. *Toast :toast:

    But anyway... I've narrowed it down to 4 keyboards:

    The Gigabyte GK-KM7600:

    • The most stylish keyboard here
    • Good placement of multimedia keys
    • Price
    • A nice change from Logitech
    • Could have rubbish feeling domes

    The Logitech illuminated K800 Wireless Keyboard:
    • ILLUMINATED. awesome feature on a wireless keyboard. I've been looking for an illuminated wireless keyboard for ages, I believe this is the first and only one ever made ever. *Big Grin Wakeup using wireless keyboard :D
    • Quality
    • Stupid function key system for multimedia keys.

    The Logitech MK550:

    • Fantastic placement of multimedia keys, one which I am quite familiar with.
    • Ergonomics

    And the Logitech MX-5500:

    • Get a great mouse with it
    • Pricey due to said mouse
