Is it possible to wake up a laptop just by connecting it to the docking station

This is just a nice-to-have, but I was wondering if there was a way for the docking station to automatically wake up a sleeping laptop when it is connected? I have a Dell docking station at work that does this with Dell laptops, so it may be a proprietary thing.

Hello Andrew,

Thank you for reaching out to Plugable Support!

You are unfortunately correct that the wake from sleep feature of a dock is proprietary and not available on third-party docking stations like ours. However, waking the laptop via USB keyboard connected to the dock should be possible, though that can depend on the host and BIOS settings.

Thank you,
