Today this functionality is proprietary. It means you need an HP dock to wake up an HP laptop.
We expect things to be more universal in next generations.
I recommend you contact HP to ask if the HP USB-C/A Universal Dock G2 power button works with your HP laptop.
Kind regards,

Got this off Google : Open the Start menu and search for Control Panel. Navigate to Hardware and Sound > Power Options > Choose what closing the lid does. You can also type "Lid" into the Start menu to immediately find this menu. I assume you would have tried this already, is there a specific reason why you would like to this, maybe understanding why can provide another solution if the above doesn't work.
