Hello,

So, is the BIOS handover to the USB stack a prerequisite when resuming from
standby mode HC (not completely off HC)?
In other words, do we need to implement BIOS handover before we can use
wake on usb keyboard input?
Or is there a workaround for this specific functionality?

Many Thanks again,
Julian
