Their weird thing is I have a wireless keyboard and mouse hooked up via USB and if I touch a key on the keyboard it wakes right up I just dont understand why its not doing the same with the remote though.
Its killing me. lol
Can you please tell us what MCE remote are using? How did you set it up? Have you modified any keys, specially the power button? Does it use Microsoft's eHome Driver?
In my systems BIOS I have all kind of options that would wake my PC from standby and all of them are turned off including the USB option. I tested my remote using the correct registry IR code and it works, perhaps your registry settings might simply turn off your PC instead of sending it to sleep. There are another registry setting that you need to use to force your laptop to start.
Usually the Sleep command should do but in your case you might need to add another button for system Wake.
You can backup your current registry settings and use my registry config on my site to test. Change the [POWER] button as follows.
0c,00,00,00,03,82,00 this will send your pc to sleep and usually wake it up.
Test this by assigning it to another button.
