Hello Migawka,

It sounds like your command prompt is not running as administrator (elevated). Do you have UAC disabled by chance?

Type this below in your command prompt and press Enter, then try again to see if it may help.

Are you able to use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below for Device Manager instead to enable the keyboard to be able to waking the computer?

It appears that it's not supported for the keyboard on your laptop. That would be why you are getting this error.

Check in your BIOS settings to see if there may be an option to allow wake by keyboard.
