    Keyboard shortcut to turn on TF?

    So I have had my TF for about a month and picked up the keyboard last week and I am loving it. I have a question though about when it sleeps. The only way that I have found to wake it is to hit the power button. Is there a keyboard shortcut that I can use to wake the machine from Sleeping?

    Hmmmm....Doesn't yours wake up after you just open up the tablet and dock? Mine does.

    I just tried a little experiment. I touched the button to put it in sleep mode, closed the Tablet/Dock together, and when I opened it, the TF came right out of sleep mode. No button touched.

    The keyboard will wake up the tablet if mobile dock power saving is off. It will also cause your dock battery to drain faster.

    It is under settings -> Screen

    You are correct. Eeeagle, you don't need a shortcut for that.

    OP might be referring to when the docked tablet is open, on table, and went to sleep, and he wants an easy way of waking it up. Closing / opening the tablet is NOT easier than pressing the power button

    eeeagle, try the touchpad. It seems to work for some people in waking the tablet up. I notice that if sound is not muted, it seems to wake up the tablet.

    Also, if you have your touchpad turned on, a mouse click will wake it up even if the keyboard is in battery saving mode.

    A long press of the right mouse button will wake it.

    I was trying the mouse and click move and it doesn't seem reliable to me

    It seems to work most of the time but then suddenly it stops working. I then I have to use the keylock button on the tablet to unlock

    After that the waking may or may not starts working using the touchpad.

    But more importantly. Can you turn that mouse pad off completely when the tablet is sleeping? it can't be good for battery to constantly having to monitor it!

    If you turn the touchpad off before the tablet goes to sleep (top row of buttons, 4th from the left) it will be off to save battery while it is sleeping. Once the tablet is asleep, it needs to be woken to turn it off.
