Wake up hyperpixel with PIR sensor (or anything really)


I want to make a wall mounted control panel with my Pi zero and Hyperpixel. The screen going to sleep is great as I don’t want it lit up when watching a film for example but I want it to wake up when I get close to it.
Can I wake up the screen with code? I want to hook up a PIR sensor so that when movement is detected the screen will wake up.
