I just wanted to ask if it's possible to wake the laptop up from Sleep by opening the lid? Right now, I would have to open the lid and press any key. My laptop is a XPS 13-9350. Thanks for your help!

Hi Robert, Thanks for your reply. The link I posted is a download link, not streaming like YouTube. As far as I know, video files tend to look better than YouTube due to the compression YouTube uses which is why I feel it might be more taxing on the system. I don't have access to another PC with similar or better specs than my XPS 13 unfortunately. I was kind of hoping someone can try downloading it on their XPS 13 and see how it runs. Regards, Marco

I have a XPS 13 9350 with an i7-6560U and 16GB RAM. I tried to watch a 4K video such as this one but it would stutter considerably. I've tried using Media Player Classic and VLC (with hardware acceleration turned on and off) with no success. Streaming 4K videos on YouTube presents no problems. Is it supposed to be like this? If so then I am a bit disappointed. Even though it's an under-powered laptop CPU, I was still hoping the i7-6560U would have better performance than this.

I can't find .Net Framework 4.0 or any other version in Programs and Features but on the left side, there was an option to "Turn Windows features on or off". So I went in there and turned the .Net Framework features off and retired what you suggested but I still got the same thing. I think the file you suggested to me is simply not compatible, especially since it is so old. Not to mention, .Net Framework 4.0 and newer should be built into Windows 10 so if it can't detect it, maybe it's just not compatible.

No, it wouldn't install because it says it requires .Net Framework 4.0 to be installed. After downloading .Net Framework 4.0 from Microsoft's website, it also won't install because it says it's already part of my system.
Thank you for your reply. I just tried to install that file but it says that it requires an x86 system. My system is 64 bit. Do you have a 64 bit version?

Hi, I have a XPS 13 9350 and would like to know if it's possible to limit the charging or stop battery charging? I saw that this is possible with Dell Battery Meter but I can't find the right version for my laptop. Also, I would like to know if it's possible to make the keyboard backlighting turn off after a longer period of time? Right now, it turns off far too soon after interaction. I saw that this is possible with Dell Quickset but once again, I don't know which is the right version for my system. Thank you!

I just got the XPS 13 and tried using my Logitech Performance MX wireless mouse. It seems to work perfectly when the wireless receiver is plugged into the right USB slot on the laptop but it doesn't work very well on the left one with often erratic movements. I also have a AUKEY USB C Hub which is plugged into the Thunderbolt port and the mouse doesn't seem to be detected at all when plugged in there. I have installed all the drivers though, can someone recommend another solution? Thank you!

Okay guys, this is really embarrassing and I already know I'm an absolute idiot so please, just bear with me. I just bought the XPS 13 Developer Edition, simply because I already have an extra Windows 8 license key and didn't want to pay extra for Windows 10. Now I know that Windows 10 wouldn't accept my Windows 8 key but I also read that Windows 8.1 doesn't accept Windows 8 keys either. I really didn't want to have to install Windows 8, followed by 8.1 and then Windows 10 so I did a search and apparently, if I used a KMS Client Setup Key during the 8.1 install, I will be able to change the key back to my Windows 8 key after the install. So I gave that a try but unfortunately, after the install, it won't accept my Windows 8 key. Finally, I decided to just screw it and install Windows 8 and start from scratch. I probably should have read up on how to downgrade from 8.1 to 8 but I thought I'd get an option to format the disk and start from the complete beginning. Turns out, it just went ahead and started installing Windows 8 (on top of 8.1 I presume). After that, it wouldn't allow me to boot anymore, each time saying that Windows detected an error or something. This was when I decided to boot into the bios and get it to boot from my Windows 8 USB drive to see if I can start over from there. For some reason, it wouldn't detect my USB and after some searching around, I realised that it's because UEFI doesn't support USB bootup (unless I'm mistaken) and that the only way to do it would be to go into the BIOS and disable Secure Boot, Enable Legacy Option ROMs and then choose the USB in the boot sequence. After doing all that, I managed to boot with my Windows 8.1 USB and install Windows 8.1 (after editing a file that allows the product key phase to be bypassed during the install) and activate it with my Windows 8 key after installation. Problem is, now when I try to re-enable UEFI and Secure Boot, the computer won't boot and says that it can't find a bootable device. Can someone please give me a hand and let me know how I can get out of this mess I made? Thank you!
