Wake Button

Recommended Posts

On a remote there usually is exactly one button for power in/off. When I configure this button as WAKE key in combination with suspend_detect the remote can wake my PC from S3. However it seems that it's not possible to send the PC to sleep with the same button, as it does not send any detectable key when configured as WAKE.

 

I think it would be useful to allow a specific button to be configured twice to send a normal keystroke AND a wake event.

it's implemened. Grab the latest firmware, head to media keys, and then pair the suspend key. It suspends and wakes the machine.

Hi

Is wake/suspend only on the media keys GUI? There is also a wake key in the keyboard controller GUI. Does this one work in the same way. I am trying to figure out if I can send wake and sleep separately in a non-toggle fashion.

You can program from different controllers and Flirc with remember the key that has been programmed.

The only way Flirc would forget a key would be if you deleted a key using the erase function, cleared the configuration or (rarely) a firmware upgrade may wipe a device (though we endeavour to warn users about this)

Hi, not really worried if it is forgetting, I am trying to figure out if they function the same way and if there is a way to send a wake only command with a remote and a sleep only command (i.e. not a toggle between the two).
