You may have to press the power button to wake the computer. Sometimes computers set their USB devices to power down during sleep mode which is why you can wake the computer with them.

There's most likely an option in your BIOS for Power Management > Wake by USB, Mouse, Keyboard, etc. If you turn on those settings then it might work.
