    I have contacted Dell, and no solution has worked for me. I did find this -- Leave the tablet in desktop mode when your done using it and it will wake from sleep fine. Just touch the slim keyboard mousepad and it wakes right up. This has been working for me for almost a week. I hope this can help others that have the venue pro 11 and the slim keyboard.
    What do you mean "desktop" mode?

    What I mean is leave the tablet not in "Metro" Tiles Mode, Leave it in the mode that resembles the computer "desktop" with clock in lower right corner. Also my previous post about Intel HD Graphics Power Saving Technology still applies as it must be disabled. If enabled the tablet will not sleep even in the computer "desktop" mode. With Intel HD Graphics Power Saving Technology disabled and the tablet in the computer "desktop" mode it will wake from sleep just fine.

    The only other thing I did that might have an effect is I set my resolution to 1600x900. I think for some reason that this has an effect on the sleep issue.

    SOLVED : here is what you have to do, and why...

    You MUST install the most currently BIOS ( A16 ), via Dell Command Update or manually.

    The sleep button function is controlled by the Dell Video driver ( not intuitive, but this is the case ). Download the current update for the driver from Dell -- current version is 10.18.15.4281, published 8/31/2015

    Now -- go into your BIOS and DISABLE C-states. You must do this, as the C-State control for sleep has issues on this particular chipset and CPU. Your battery life will not suffer, if you use the "Balanced" or "Dell" power plans in windows 8.1 or 10.

    That's it. Your sleep button should now work correctly. As a bonus, in your power management settings, you can now set your "sleep/hibernate" preferences for when you push the button, or when you close your media/slim keyboard covers.

    Enjoy
