Thanks for asking!
You’ll want to use your mouse or keyboard to wake the system. Whether that will work depends on the power state of the system (for example, a system fully powered off – not asleep – can’t be woken by any USB peripheral).
Windows is designed to enable USB mice and keyboards to wake the system whenever possible.
USB docking stations don’t have special wake buttons, because (since it’s also connected via USB), it wouldn’t have a special ability to wake beyond what USB keyboards and mice (or any other USB device) could do. They would succeed or fail to wake in the same cases.
If a USB mouse is having trouble waking the system, these are good resources to figure out what might be happening:
If you’d like to keep your laptop fully off (not sleeping), then cracking open the case to reach the power button will be the only way to wake it.
