Problem description: I have an acer predator 17 hooked up to a tv and i can not wake it with my logitech usb devices when the lid is closed.
I have set the power option for lid closure to "do nothing"
I have set the usb ports to be powered during sleep
I have gone into the device manager and attempted to set the logitech devices to be able to wake the computer from the power options menu you need admin priv to see, but that option is greyed out
Recent changes: system is new
Operating system: windows 10
System specs: Acer predator 17
google/faq? yes. There are actually a bunch of threads going back to 2014 of people complaining about this on acer machines and none of the advice they give does anything or is inaccessible to me.
Thanks for helping.

Good enough solution: i turned on wake over lan in the bios and got a phone app to send the magic packet.
