Bonus Feature For Dock Power Button

Wake A MacBook Or PC With The Power Button On Your Targus Laptop Docking Station

The dock's power button can wake a PC from S0 to S4, but not S5 since it is not supported in Windows. View Documentation for more details.

While Wake-On-LAN (WOL) is not officially supported from soft off (S5), the BIOS on some systems may support arming NICs for wake, even though Windows is not involved in the process.

Currently, there is no specification for dock power button operation in powering ON hosts from mechanical OFF. However, many MacBooks can be powered ON from the dock’s power button. .
