Re: Wake up from standby
OK, so George's solution is working now. I will try also waking up with mouse other key event. It should work because "acpitool -w" lists PS2K and PS2M as wake up events but shows them as disabled.

I don't think this is feasible. I believe the manufacturer determines
which keys/buttons are recognized while the unit is suspended.

This is indeed how I could circumvent the problem:
As George has already pointed out, it is not really an elegant
solution, but it seems to work.
