Windows 7: Wake up tools

21 Feb 2009   #11

Windows 7 Build 7048 x64

Please update your drivers and software from here, its a direct link to your computer's download page.

Most notable to check is your BIOS and ACPI updates that could address why you're laptop is stuck in dreamland I've also dug in your models functionality and it does not support any wake on BIOS settings. So your best bet would be to update the BIOS and ACPI in the hopes that WakeOnStandBy will be able to utilize this and wakes your computer from within Windows.

Let us know how this turns out for yah
