Any key! This may help if its a display setting problem:
Fn & F5 simultaneously, cycles the display output through the 5 modes. (hold the Fn key down, and press the F5 key, press it again, give it time to change before you press it each time)
the 5 modes are:
1.built in display only.
2.built in display AND external monitor.
3.External monitor only
4.built in display and TV
5. TV only
*note: Internal display resolution must match external display resolution, and that resolution must be
at least 800X600, or higher

windows 10 HOME edition (crippleware)
so run the DON'T_SLEEP program.
do that. and it can work.
do know that LEnovo and Dell are not the same company.
They both set the rules. here.
nor do they have the same drivers, nor same settings.
nor the same chips inside.
only That W10 HOME ,in name alone is the same.
if your PC goes to sleep there will be issues.
one issue is the KVM is not waking the Dell.
because it does not know or try all modes to do that.
as the KVM wiki shows.
a good KVM holds and emulates the USB port. to the PC does not drop the USB connection. switched off that PC.
the sure way is to not allow it to sleep, this is first.
if it was Pro version this is easy, but it is not PRO
it's HOME.(home = pain) windows 10, Pain edition.!!!
and home has no tools to do that.
so use the DON'T-SLEEP app. this is like 1minutes work here to run that and us it.
if this fails that means the USB ports are going dead on the DELL. (sleep or ?)

Check for power options you might have some hibernation settings or some wallpaper wakeup program. If you properly shut down your computer, it won't turn ON itself unless you provide it power.

It goes to sleep and won't wakeup

I believe this model only comes with Vista. Go to Control Panel, and on the left hand side click Classic View then click the icon for Power Options.

There will be a few options under Preferred Plans and one is selected (Filled in dot)

Under the Power Plan that is selected, click Change Plan Settings and on the next screen, click Change Advanced Power Settings.

You will have a new window that opens up with a bunch of categories with little boxes with + signs. Click the + Sign box beside sleep to open op the menu. In the options under sleep, change HYBRID sleep and HIBERNATE to NEVER. Especially the Hybrid sleep as this was a problem I found with Vista. It sounds like the computer is going into the Hybrid/Hibernation and not comping out from it unless you power off the computer and turn it back on

Also, click the + sign beside Hard Disk and make sure the option to "Turn off Hard Disks After" is also set to NEVER

Problem with hard-drive

Stand-by is sometimes in a deeper sleep than desired. Suggest that U disable the hd hibernation. HP is one of the many brands that have trouble with hd hiberation. The hd will always spin-down after delay when not being addressed. U don't save anything going to hibernation. If U leave Ur system on all the time, U need to shut-down and blow or **** the dirt out of the case every coupla months. The dirt will cause over heating and can create problems with the wakeup from hibernation.

No display

Usually the keyboards have an fn key. Press fn + the key that has the sign of moon at the same time.

Also you may try to close your laptop and open it up and see if that will wake up the computer. Somehow your power setting on battery are messed up.

Hope that helps you.

Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.
