In Windows I can get my computer to resume from sleep mode by pressing any key on the keyboard. My keyboard is a Logitech G15 (USB).

How can I get this functionality in Ubuntu?

I have a dell 1405 with ubuntu, and when it sleeps, I have always found it hard to resume, so i turned off that feature.. – fady Feb 22 '10 at 23:39

Is it a USB keyboard? Maybe this thread at Ubuntu Forums can help.

Yep, it's a USB keyboard (Logitech G15 to be exact). – Jephir Feb 23 '10 at 0:28
