Cortana in Windows is enhanced with new technologies like Intel’s Smart Sound Technology which will give her a new ability i.e. to wake up you Windows 10 PC. If you want Cortana to wake up your computer from standby mode, all you need to do is to tell Cortana, “Hey Cortana, wake up my PC”. Your computer will subtly turn on by following your command.
