Wakeup Sleep in Power Options

by I-Solve In reply to why windows 7 dont have ...

Hello Ali,
The sleep option depends on BIOS settings, or your video card. Make sure your computer has the recommended devices to support Windows 7. If you have the recommended devices, continue to read.

Not sure which version of Windows 7 you are using, but the "Sleep" option in most Win 7 versions can be accessed by clicking the Start button and selecting the arrow button to the right of Shut Down. You will see a list including "Sleep."

Move your mouse, or press the power button to "Wake" the computer. You can also turn the scroll button on your mouse to "Wake" the computer.

Go to Control Panel, System and Security, Power Options,or type "Power Options" in the "Search programs and files" in the Start-search, to manage power options.

If you are not able to "wake" your computer by moving your mouse or using the keyboard, make sure the option to "Allow this device to wake the computer" box is checked.

Click Start, type in Device Manager in the Start search window. Select keyboard, expand the keyboard option and you should see your keyboard listed. Right click and select Properties. Click the Change settings button, (you may be required to Consent or provide a password to make changes) select the Power Management tab and check the "Allow this device to wake the computer" option. Do the same with the mouse in Device Manager.
