I have installed Windows 8 on my Acer Aspire laptop, when I sleep it I can only bring it out of sleep with the power button which is broke and i have to use a screw-driver

Iam currently using the laptop as a PC with it connected to a monitor, USB Mouse and USB Keyboard and want too sleep it so I can wake it from the keyboard (or mouse) because my current PC is whack!

the BIOS has no options for sleep...
ive disabled the 'power Management' in USB ROOT HUBS in DevMngr
ive set the mouse and keyboards to "allow to wake device"
and ive reboot...

but nothing works..?

does anyone have a fix for this? - it worked on windows 7?
