So I got a USB keyboard and external monitor to use with my laptop while the lid is closed. It worked great the first couple of weeks, I was able to wake it by pressing a button or shaking the mouse just like a desktop. Now it has stopped working, and I have to open the lid and press the keyboard or power button to wake it. I enabled the wake from USB setting in the BIOS, and verified a handful of other things that should have solved it, but here I am.
If I lift the lid and press a button on the built in keyboard, it lights up temporarily but then proceeds to shut down. It requires that I plug in the power cord and press the power button to get it going again. The battery is not dead, however. Immediately after logging in the battery shows 90% charged. Very odd behavior, I'd really appreciate some help with this. Thanks
