I have just installed this docking station to use with my laptop. I’m very impressed with it, and it works very well, except for one problem.
I typically use the laptop with the lid closed, and use it using a wired mouse and keyboard. When the laptop is in sleep mode, clicking the mouse or hitting a key on the keyboard doesn’t wake it up. I have to open the laptop lid, and press the power button to wake it up. The laptop is a Lenovo W541 running Windows 7.
I’ve verified that for the “Power Management” settings for the keyboard and mouse, the option “Allow this device to wake the computer” is checked. When directly connected to the laptop, I can use the mouse and keyboard to wake up the laptop.
This question was already asked here, but it wasn’t fully answered:
Can you help?
