When my computer is in standby it's not possible to wake it up by pressing a key on my WhiteFox (works fine with my previous keyboard). Is there any way to make it work?

(This is on both Mac and Ubuntu.)

This is a current bug in the firmware, I'm working on a fix for this. Sorry! The firmware was able to do this before the launch of the K-Type.

I see, so we just have to wait for the fix then.

I nearly have a fix (the computer is waking now, just need to clean up a few things). Should have something in the next few days.

I've pushed the fix to master, but it may take a bit until we can push the fix to the configurator (there are a few regressions).

Has a fix been pushed to the configurator? I am still having this issue.

Though, there are a few regressions to fix before this will be made available from the Kiibohd Configurator:

If you are impatient, you can try compiling the firmware manually from master which has the fix:

I cloned the git repo and tried to compile the firmware but I'm not sure if I did it right or if I missed something. Anyway, my computers still refuses to wake up - both Ubuntu 17.10 and MacBook Air.

I'm working on some more fixes this weekend. I'll post a test binary for you to try once I've finished testing.

Has this been pushed to configurator? The latest version still doesn't wake up a computer. The lts version can wake it up, but for some reason F10 and F12 do not work in lts ('0' and '+' are being sent instead). I've got the firmware from

The web configurator is a bit out of date (as we need to port a bunch of the changes in the downloadable version; the backend has changed entirely). So for now I'd recommend using the donwloadable configurator (makes flashing much easier as well).

Thank you for your answer. Already used the downloadable configurator and it worked flawlessly.
