Dell won't resume from Stand By without pressing the power button.
Posted on 2009-07-07
After I wake a computer via wake on Lan, when I come back to the office the next day, the computer won't wake from standby. Basically, the computer won't wake from stand by or sleep. Hibernation is disabled.
Things I've done to fix the issue:
Updated to the latest video driver
All Windows updates
Does anyone have any advice for me? This is a new computer and both mouse and keyboard have adequate power management built in with the ability to wake the computer. However, both mouse and keyboard won't wake the computer. The green light on the Dell is a solid green light. The only way to wake the computer is to push the power button which reboots the computer. I want to be able to wake the computer by moving the mouse or keyboard.
