Description Moritz 2022-03-10 09:18:42 UTC
I have no clue, if this is kwin specific, but it probably is. I could be wrong, please tell me where to open the isse or move it please.

When the screen is turned off (either via power button or just waiting some minutes) I can easily turn it on with the keyboard or the mouse, but not with the pen.

I am on wayland.

On Wayland I can only wake up my laptop by pressing the power button. This may be a device-specific power management or kernel thing, not a KWin thing.
Comment 2 Moritz 2022-03-30 09:49:49 UTC
Maybe waykeup is not the correct word. I mean turning the screen on.
I can turn on my laptop when moving the cursor (mouse or touchpad) or pressing keys or pressing the power button.
I can wake up pmy device when pressing any key or the power button.

I should be abke ti turn on the screen when moving the cursor with the pen.

I don't know if it is to kwin, but it could be, it is the display manager?
