Detection for computer waking up from sleep.


Simple browserify module based on this clever trick by Alex MacCaw.

It simply exports a single function that you can pass a callback to.

When your computer wakes from sleep your callback will be called.

If you're not using a module system or using AMD use the wake-event.bundle.js file instead.

var wakeEvent = require('wake-event');
wakeEvent(function () {
    console.log('computer woke up!');

If you're not using a module system at all, use Alex's jQuery plugin or just include the bundle file by itself.

<script src="wake-event.bundle.js"></script>
    wakeEvent(function () {
        console.log('computer awake!');
npm install wake-event
