I have a brand new GE66 Raider and have an issue with waking it up from sleep, I have it closed and connected to a gaming PC, mouse and keyboard, and would like to wake it up without having to open it every time, but the thing is not only does the usb mouse and keyboard fail to wake it up, even the built in keyboard will not wake it up. Aside from hitting the power button, nothing will wake up the laptop from sleep.

So far I've gone through Device Manager and made sure the peripherals are allowed to wake up the PC under properites>power management, I've made sure usb selective suspend is disabled in advanced power options, and I can't even see an option for enabling/disabling usb wake up in the BIOS. My next plan of action was to see if the BIOS needs to be updated, but I wanted to check to see if this is a common issue with some simple yet obscure fix.

Updating firmware and graphics drivers would be the suggestion.
If the problem still remains, then a smaller chance of a defect of the hall effect magnet for the unit, which would need a hardware check to confirm.

I would make sure to rule out software issues before going to hardware.
Create a "high performance" power plan from scratch with all the values you want, save it and restart your Laptop.
That should work, if not, do a system recovery to repair your glitch.

Might as well turn it off, I don't know about your laptop, but mine take as much time to wake from HIBERNATE than when OFF, mind you, that ain't a long wait, that's why I never put in SLEEP mode, because 15 seconds is fine with me. ;)

? boot time .,,.no problem here "6sec from fully shutdown" :biggrin:
,.,.i never used any sleep or hibernate "hibernate not works when not exist page-file :unsure:"

sleep and hibernate is good for "saving" current work and transporting ,.,.but exist some levels "S state" and some setup in bios
and on notebook probably - EC controls some this deep levels "wake up works only on power button"

sleep or hibernate
one is suspend on RAM / one on DISK

it depends on the user / hw - what is best for him
DISK- slower / stable
RAM - fast / but possible data loss
/////////////
hibernate is DISK
sleep - RAM ,.,.:unsure:

.,,. but i recommend google for accurate information :biggrin:

if you use fast boot / all roms is UEFI is boot fast

OS on RAID0 / fast NVME -- nice boot time
possitible setup - cpu boot state "max turbo" - faster boot

,..,does it matter if SLEEP is needed at all ??? ""full cycle is better for system / wakeUP"" and for 15s boot ? no problem use full cycle always :whistle:
