Hello Folks,

since a few days i own a new Notebook MSI Summit E15. In the Bios settings i miss the feature to power on the device with AC Power On. Bcs. at work the Notebook is connected to a usb-c monitor with power delivery. When i power on the monitor, the nb should boot up automatically. Is there a option to do this? In my opinion, for a business device, such a feature should be built in. Is there a option to get the advanced bios shown up?

Greetings,

Tom

I think you can only wake the system up from S3/ Modern Standby through TB3 port or USB ports. For S4/S5, haven't seen any MSI laptop that supports this feature.

Hello,

thanks for ur reply!

Unfortunately, the S3 statuses don't really work either. The laptop can go into energy saving mode, but then goes to sleep after about an hour or more. That means, no more waking up via USB / TB possible.

My laptop is closed on my desk and it should stay that way. The power supply to the monitor and laptop is also completely disconnected at night. In any case, MSI's start into the business region has messed up here. It is not enough to pack existing hardware in a black case to be able to believe that this is now business. Unfortunately, the device lacks the real business functions for this. A cheap Dell laptop can at least wake on AC. It's the easiest thing to implement. The Summit can neither do that nor even WOL.

If you are looking for real business functions, you shouldn't take a closer look at the Summit. The performance data are good, no doubt about it. However, today it simply takes more than just packing a standard setup into a pretty case.

I think the circumstance is related to the "Modern Standby".
When you put your laptop overnight without power adaptor plugged in, the system may go into hibernate mode to save power.
You can export the sleep report to check the sleep state.
Once the system enters hibernate state, it will need to press the power button again to wake up the system just like booting up.

Hello!

Yes, thats the reason why the given S states are not usefull for me. The old Dell Laptop would have the bios setting "Power on with AC back". This Option would solve my little problem.
