    Ok, so, as of 2 days ago my computer no longer wakes from sleep when I press button on my mouse or keyboard. I haven't changed any settings, it just stopped working.

    I have tried running "powercfg /devicequery /wake_armed" and they're both set to wake, I've tried enabling and disabling turning off the power to the usb in device manager, and checked both my mouse and keyboard have checks on allow to wake in device manager, and even tried turning off fast startup as I've read it can interfere with sleep mode. And checked all my settings in power management.

    Not sure what else to check without going into my BIOS, which I try to avoid at all costs.

    For the record, pressing the power button still works, it's just my peripherals that won't wake the computer.

    Never mind. It seems turning off "allow hybrid sleep" has fixed it. For now at least.
