how to turn on laptop from sleep mode when on tablet mode

HP Recommended
ENVY X360 13
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Not a huge issue it's just when my laptop goes to sleep when on tablet mode I do not know how to turn it back on while still in tablet mode without changing back to desktop mode, turning it on, then changing back to tablet mode.

Usually, when a touch-screen laptop is in sleep mode, all you have to do is tap on the screen, maybe more than once, and the laptop wakes up.  At least, that's what works for mine.


You might have to open the laptop enough to get at the power button if it is not on the side of the laptop.


If you are having to shut down the laptop and THEN, power it up again, to awaken it from sleep, then you're probably running into issues do to Fast Startup.


Win10 has enabled a new hibernation process known as Fast Startup -- which is enabled BY DEFAULT. This is different from Fast Boot, which is a BIOS/UEFI option.

Fast Startup is supposed to dramatically speed up the booting process, but in some PCs, it actually slows it down or causes it to hang. It's also a new form of hibernation known as hybrid sleep -- and this causes battery drain to maintain the state of the PC while turned off.

Disabling Fast Startup might fix booting and shutdown problems.

There are two ways to disable FastStartup in Win10: (1) through the Control Panel, and (2) through an elevated command prompt.

Control Panel - Open Control Panel --> Power Options.
Select "Choose what the power buttons do"
Select "Change settings that are currently unavailable"
At the bottom of the Window, under Shutdown settings, uncheck the box regarding fast startup

Elevated command prompt - run the following command:
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power" /V HiberbootEnabled /T REG_dWORD /D 0 /F

In both cases, reboot Windows.

NOW, FastStartup is disabled.

See if that helps.

I have tried disabling Fast Startup but it still doesn't work. No matter how many times I tap on the screen, using my HP pen or my finger, the laptop still doesn't wake up.
