Is there a way to wake my laptop from sleep or hibernation while the lid is closed?
I have a Dell Inspiron 13" 5000 2-in-1 running Windows 10 Home 64-Bit OS and use a Wireless Dell KM117 Mouse and keyboard. I’ve set the power management option to “not sleep” when plugged in and the lid is shut so I can use the external monitor.
Is there anyway for me to wake the notebook from sleeping or hibernating without opening the lid? As of right now using the sleep key on the keyboard puts it to sleep but won’t wake, neither will activating/moving the mouse.
The power button is on the side of the lap top and is accessible but when pushed does not make the computer sleep or wake. Any solutions to this?
Thanks but my issue is not closing the lid and keeping the laptop from going to sleep as I had already adjusted that power setting. My problem is that once the lid is closed and the laptop is sleeping/hibernating there is no way to “wake” the laptop unless I open the lid.
I can make it sleep using the keyboard sleep function but doing that again won’t wake it. Neither will pressing the power button on the side. How can I wake it without opening the lid?
Sorry we were in the middle of a move/remodel and didn’t have access to the plugable docking station. I checked all the mouse/keyboard devices but only one of them had a power management tab that allowed marking to wake the computer. It was already marked.
