Can anyone advise me on how to resume from standby mode by pressing a key instead of moving the mouse? I've looked at previous entries on this forum but I can't seem to find a definitive answer. I'm using Wndows XP with SP2.
I have to press the "power button" on the chasis as when my system goes into stand-by, it reacts as if it has been turned off.... Once I press the power button, it loads straight to where-ever I put it in stand-by from (without going through the BIOS or "loading Windows" boot-screen)
I guess it depends on how your system goes into stand-by, but most of the time just press [enter] as mad martin says and it SHOULD "wake-up"
Open the device manager and find you keyboard on the list right click it and select properties then the power management tab make sure there is a tick in allow this device to bring the computer out of standby (or something like that)
When you hit a key your pc should now come out of standby
