Hi, just installed Big Sur on a Dell XPS 13 9360 (2017, Developer Edition).

Despite having a few issues getting it to install, Im near the last few hurdles but this one has stumped me.
I am using a Logitech MXKeys on Unifying dongle (not bluetooth) via a KVM which works fine on my original Macbook PRO 2019 but on the Dell waking up from sleep does not work. I have to open the lid and press any key.

I have tried the following:
Updates/Observations:
  • Seems that if I press the keyboard after a few seconds but not after a few minutes.
  • Also plugged the unifying adapter directly into usb dock for the dell laptop
Any other methods I can try?

Thanks.
