My Alienware 17 R2 will only wake from sleep by pressing the power button, not from keyboard or mouse press.....thought this would be a simple fix but I just can't seem to work this out......never seen this on any other laptop....any ideas people ;-)

Update to this issue....If the laptop goes to sleep due to inactivity I can wake from mouse/keyboard etc. If I put the laptop to sleep via the shutdown menu it can only be woken via the power button.....Is this a common experience?

its common, if your laptop was sleeping that means you have to wake it by pressing the logo button.

my laptop (after updating to windows 10) has to be shut down when it goes to sleep mode. I use it for work so it has to be password protected. When it goes to sleep mode it wakes up and I can type a few letters of the password then it freezes up and I have to hard power it off to reset it.
Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

Change power setting so it don't sleep. Or UPGRADE to Windows 8.1 ;-)
