Sleep - Keyboard Wake Not Working

as per the title, as of today my keyboard won't wake my desktop. i select Sleep from the Start button options, goes to sleep as usual, but now i have to press the case's power button. i've had a quick look at some power options, Hybrid Sleep was enabled and i'm pretty sure i had disabled it, but after turning it off i'm still having the same prob. had a quick look at search on here, one thread

Download and run Malwarebytes [FREE] from here => Malwarebytes.

[1] Have you installed any new hardware, software or updates prior to this happening?
[2] Have you tried System Restore? [This reverts the computer back to its original state prior to any recent updates etc being applied].

I hope this helps!

We don't know what hardware you have. Please edit your profile with all your hardware specs.
This SevenForums tutorial [Published by Brink and written by CyberZeus] makes this task very easy and quick to do. Click here => System Info - See Your System Specs

If your keyboard is connected via USB, it may be that your power configuration is turning off all USB ports during configuration.
Open Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options and click on Change Plan settings - Change advanced Power settings.
Under USB check the setting
