Windows 11 Won’t Wake up from Sleep, How to Fix It

Check the Mouse, Keyboard, or Trackpad

If the mouse, keyboard, or trackpad you’re using to try to wake up your Windows 11 computer stops working, of course you’ll end up in failure. You should plug out the mouse and keyboard properly; then, plug the mouse (or the keyboard) back into your computer and try to use it again. Please also check these things:

  • If you’re using a Bluetooth mouse or keyboard, please check the battery.
  • Check the USB port you’re using to connect the mouse/keyboard.
  • Check whether other external devices are connected to your PC; remove them and try again.
