Wake PC from sleep with IPAC
« on: February 13, 2022, 09:57:15 pm »
So rather than powering off my PC completely, I put it to sleep. I built a bartop cabinet, and unfortunately didn't plan enough for the power button :)
The problem is I can't wake the PC using the IPAC2. It wakes up no problem if I press a key on the keyboard, but I don't want to do that.
Has anyone gotten this to work?

Just use the shift function and program the sleep/awake button into one of the buttons. Love that shift function. An overlooked function of the iPac that really comes in handy.

Phreakwars, not sure I follow. AFAIK, the shift function is just to overload a button to a different key--but that doesn't help in my use case. When I put the computer to sleep, all inputs to the  IPAC don't work. To wake the computer, I have a usb keyboard, and I can press any key to awaken the PC. But IPAC button presses are ignored (even though the LED light is on the IPAC when its asleep!)

Am I missing something?

Sorry, I'm a dummy. I just realized there's a *function* called wake. I got it working. Thanks!
