Can’t Wake the System by Touching the Monitor

Symptom:

Touching the monitor doesn’t wake your system.

Problem:

If your system’s Display setting is on No Signal, your monitor may be powering down its USB ports when the system goes to sleep and disabling its touch capabilities.

Workaround:

  1. Configure your monitor to wake when touched.
  2. If your monitor doesn’t have this kind of setting, switch your system’s Display setting to Black.
