When my computer is sleeping I can easily boot it by pressing a bottom on either my mouse or keyboard, but when it is hibernating I have to press the power bottom.

Please help me to find a way to wake up the computer from hibernation using the my keyboard or mouse, as my laptop is hidden away and I'm using separate monitors, keyboard and mouse.

Thank you very much for any help you can provide!! :)

I doubt that is possible since a laptop doesn't have a keyboard Power On function.

Hibernation (or Suspend to disk) in computing is powering down a computer while retaining its state.

Upon hibernation, the computer saves the contents of its random access memory (RAM) to a hard disk or other non-volatile storage. Upon resumption, the computer is exactly as it was upon entering hibernation.

When used to save power, hibernation is similar to sleep mode and saves more power at the cost of slower resumption.

Hibernation saves electrical power. After hibernating, the hardware is completely powered down (just like for a regular shutdown). Therefore a hibernated machine uses no more electrical power than one which is switched off. Hibernation is a means of avoiding the burden of saving unsaved data before shutting down and restoring all running programs after powering back on.
