Hi, I have an old Time laptop (so getting any drivers/chipsets will be a pain) that I'm using as a Home Theatre PC under my TV. I can wake up from standby with its power button, but not from its keyboard. Also, I can't do this using my Microsoft Wireless Desktop Keyboard, connected via USB (laptop doesn't have any PS2 ports).

I want to be albe to keep the laptop lid closed at all times and placed above my VCR, so having to open it every time I want to wake from standby is not ideal.

I've looked at all the APM properties for m/board and keyb but nothing. The BIOS says nothing about power management either.

Running Win XP SP2

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi

Were u able to do that before? Are u sure that your laptop is set to standby and not to sleep/hibernate mode?

Hi, thanks for your reply.

No, as far as I know it's never done it - I've only just started using it for this purpose so I've never tried before.

Yes, this problem occurs in Standby mode.

cheers
