But his does not work all the time then i have to force shutdown the system by pressing the power button. Is there any solution for this.

  • Hi,

     

    Check if you have set the computer to sleep after 30 minutes first. Control Panel->Power Options->Change when the computer sleeps. If so, here is the workaround.

     

    Open “Device manager”, right click on your keyboard and click “Properties”. If it is a USB keyboard, under the “Power Management” tab, check the box before “Allow this device to wake the computer”.

     

    Regards,
