The keyboard on my PC has a standby button, if I press it the computer goes into standby. If the computer is IN standby though pressing the button has no effect. Any idea how I can make it work?

Note:

1) USB power on this machine is continuously enabled, I know this because I can charge my MP3 player when the PC is off. The keyboard however appears to be dead when the PC is off or in standby.

2) USB Keyboard Support is enabled in the BIOS and I can use the keyboard to change CMOS settings without MS Windows being loaded.

You have to enable wake on what event. You sure it is not in hybrid sleep or hibernate and not just sleep?

Yeah, I thought that would be the answer, the only problem is that my BIOS only supports wake on LAN. Oh well, I'll carry on turning it on the old fashioned way using the power button.

Thanks anyway.

It's a six year old Lenovo desktop machine that runs the original XP SP3 that came with the machine including all the right drivers. I think it's probably lack of BIOS support of the keyboard when in standby.

I agree. Lack of hardware support.
