Default K63 Wireless - Wakeup time

I like most things about my new K63 Wireless. But what almost brings me undone is the wakeup time from idle.

I am not talking about the sleep time, which can be changed in iCUE, but rather the time the keyboard takes to wake up after it has gone to sleep.

This time is in the vicinity of 3-4 seconds. And even worse, no keystrokes are registered until it actually fully wakes up.

I have previously used Logitech and Microsoft wireless keyboards. They have awoken instantly, and remembered keystrokes immediately. So... it can be done.

Is my only alternative to set an absurdly long sleep time? And thus, reduce my battery length?

I was excited to get a quality keyboard with the K63 Wireless, but my particular usage pattern makes using it problematic.

In no reviews, nor in any Corsair advertising/information, did I read about this inordinate delay in waking up. Especially, as I said, even $20 wireless keyboards seem to have instant on.

Advice / commiserations would be welcome. Thanks.

Using dongle or BlueTooth? I use it BT and wake up is almost instant. In fact I don't have much experience with it via dongle, I'll have to experiment. Only time it's slow is when the PC sleeps, and the BT on the laptop has to wake up and re-establish connections. That can take 3-4 secs. (about 3 flashes of the BT indicator)

I just bought the k63 10 days ago and after updating the firmware to 3.07 I have the same issue. Sometimes it will wake up immediately but others it will take 2-3 seconds. None of my previous wireless keyboards had such issue

@Apophis3

I'm using the WiFi dongle. It's on a PC - no Bluetooth.

But my other wireless keyboards were WiFi as well, and they awoke instantly.

@mr_ako

Yes. I notice other posts on here as well about this.

I would be happy to sacrifice half my battery time if the keyboard just always stayed available.

Please Corsair..... fix this in a firmware/iCUE update. This is a *premium* device, with a premium price...

@RomanSandstorm

I just got home, so I nabbed my dongle and switched. I'll try it for a couple of days and see how it works. Also, I have my Sleep timer on the KB set to 30 minutes.

Hi everyone, we've heard you and are working to implement two improvements:
1) Reduced re-connection time when the keyboard is woken from sleep
2) Separation of low power mode (w/ backlight timeout) and sleep mode with adjustable settings

These will take a bit of time to roll out, but they are coming.
