    Hi! I too have an ASUS (UX360UAK) laptop. The power button is annoyingly on the side and rather inconvenient to push down every time I want to wake my laptop, and hitting a keyboard button won't wake it from sleep either.

    I've gone into device management-->keyboards-->power management. In device management there are three keyboards: a PC/AT Enhanced PS/2 (101/102-Key), and two HID Keyboard Devices. I'm not sure which one of these is the physical keyboard, but only the only one that has a Power Management tab is one of the HID Keyboard Device's so I'm assuming it's this one. In Power Management, Allow this device to wake the computer is CHECKED/ENABLED but still keyboard won't wake my laptop from sleep.

    I've completed the BIOS instruction too, and HID Keyboard Device (001) is listed and enabled (See pic)

    I've also tried entering this command: powercfg -deviceenablewake "HID Keyboard Device (002)" and it doesn't work I get the following:
    C:\Users\Mahsa>powercfg -deviceenablewake "HID Keyboard Device (002)"Unable to perform operation. An unexpected error (0x490) has occurred: Element not found.

    I think it's pretty obvious that those screenshots are not of elevated command prompts... If you right click > "Run as admin" cmd.exe, then it will display "C:\WINDOWS\system32" as path (not "C:\Users\username") and "Administrator:" at the beginning of title text.

    Anyways, it's a great tutorial as always. I especially love downloading .reg files and scripts from here, terrific resource. Thanks again @Brink.

    This HowTo isnt working anymore, either because of a bug in Windows (1803), or because of modern standby. I have a Dell XPS 15 9570, which unfortunately uses modern standby and not S3, and neither of the two options work.

    1. there are no energy save tabs anymore in device manager for ANY device, not wifi, not bluetooth, not mouse nor keyboard HID devices. (tab is missing) (tab is missing) (grayed out)

    2. powercfg shows just, that the fingerprint sensor is allowed to wake up the device:C:\Windows\system32>powercfg -devicequery wake_armedGoodix fingerprint

    yet... ANY movement of the mouse, keyboard press, or bluetooth event just wakes up the laptop from sleep.
