Windows 7: Waking CPU out of sleep with wireless mouse.

26 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7

Wrong thread? I don't think so... at least I understand what Oldroser means, as I'm having the same issue.

That is, I use my computer with an external keyboard & monitor, and want to be able to turn it on/wake it from sleep without opening the screen. Unfortunately, that's what I have to do every time: open the screen, press the power button, and then close it quickly. It seems like a very clunky work-around for something that should have been designed in 3 generations ago.

Come on Dell! With a little notebook like the Vostro 1220, don't you think lots of users are connecting external monitors and keyboards when at their desks? Of course they are!
