Windows 7: Make Laptop Wake Up With Wireless Keyboard?

Make Laptop Wake Up With Wireless Keyboard?

Hi I have a Logitech DiNovo Edge Wireless Keyboard and a Logitech M510 Wireless Mouse.
I have a problem though. I already searched EVERYWHERE and I cannot find and answer.

I can't get my laptop to wake up by pressing keys on the keyboard or by clicking the mouse. The only way I can get it out of standby is to press a key on the actual laptop or click something with the laptop's built it touchpad.

I already tried looking in Device Manager but there is no Power Management tab for the keyboard or the mouse. There is only a Power Management tab on the laptop's built in keyboard and touchpad.

It's kind of annoying not being able to use the wireless devices to wake up the computer.
I've read around that maybe it's because since the computer is on standby, the wireless keyboard and mouse's USB receiver aren't being powered by the laptop.

I have no idea what to try now and it's irritating. Does anyone here have a solution?
It would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks for reading.

Go into the Power plan by searching for power options.

In your power plan, go to change advanced settings

You will find in this list, a section called USB Settings

Disabling the Suspend should allow the USB devices to continue working when the computer sleeps

I tried that. But the keyboard or mouse still don't wake the computer up.

Is the mouse/keyboard on a USB Hub? if so try in the port instead.

If its not then I dont know if there is a way around this. When a comp powers down, it turns most everything off and the components onboard the motherboard still function like the keyboard and trackpad, but the USB controller doesnt still recieve power. so if setting the option in the power plan didnt help, then there are few other options. one would be in the BIOS there might be a setting for the component. another would be maybe installing drivers for the wireless keyboard if you havent done so or updating the drivers or BIOS.

Still not sure still if any of that will help.

It's a laptop it only has 2 USB ports. One is the mouse and the other is the keyboard.

The drivers are all up to date I just checked that now. Still no solution :/
I remember Xp had an option for this.

In your BIOS settings, probably under advanced there should be an option for USB wake support, this needs to be enabled.

There is no option for that in the BIOS. I have a compaq presario v6000 and the BIOS are very very limited I can't really change anything except boot order and SATA native support.
