computer goes into sleep mode every 5 minutes

My computer goes to sleep every 5 minutes in standby mode and needs to get back to where I left my password. I tried to change the power options, but he keeps doing. If I'm watching a video, the screen turns off and ask for my password, but you can still video game.



Open windows control panel, open personalization, click on the link to screensaver at the bottom right and in the next window, set the time in the area of 'Wait' for once you want before the screen saver appears, and click on apply. Or if you never get the logon screen, remove the check mark next to of "on resume, display the login page»  Click on apply to save the changes.

Then open windows control panel again and click on Power Options, click Change plan settings next to your current power plan selected in the next window, set the time using the drop-down list next to "Turn wide Display" to a more acceptable level and then click on save changes.

Note:  Set in the Options menu of food to be slightly longer than the time set in the Menu of the screen saver or you will never see your screen saver start.

Kind regards

  • When my computer goes into sleep mode, I have to press the power button to turn it back on.

    original title: sleep/hibernation

    When my computer goes into sleep mode, I have to press the power button to turn it back on.  I used only having to press a key on the keyboard.

    Can someone tell me how to solve this problem, as if it was before?

    Well, on the theory that your computer is awkward, try to change the settings to another thing and OK your way out the control panel.  Then go back and put them in the way they were and OK your way out.  Occasionally, it will reset the internal parameters and things can return to normal.

  • HP pavilion/dm4 goes into sleep mode after 1 minute - it's a Cannonball!

    I checked my control panel settings, then advanced settings (for the notification icons - which does not apply to this problem).

    What I put, I'm working at my computer and screen will still sleep a minute after, if I'm not touching the keyboard.

    What I don't get. I need at least 5 minutes or longer before it should go to sleep. My office computer goes to sleep after I do it.

    Thank you.


    I assume you mean that you have checked your Power Options settings in the control panel?

    Have you tried clicking on a blank spot on the desktop screen and selecting Customize? From there look "Screen saver" settings at the bottom. It can be set to "empty" with a time of 1 minute.

    Original title: waking up from sleep

    Hi, I have windows 8, I have a question that has not already happened in win 7

    Then, when I put my computer on standby covering the screen down. And when I wake up, I had to press or on the keyboard, the Start button / stop or mouse button. the computer turns on itself. so for about 4 seconds it shuts itself again. the second time by the press of the keyboard and etc will not turn the computer off again.
    There is a small problem, but its getting really boring, time on the computer turns off by itself again is like 10 seconds of frustration, and I turn it back on, it's just really annoying after months. I thought that I have will get used to it, but nope.

    Hi Ianlei,

  • My computer will always run a scheduled backup, if it goes into sleep mode? Windows 7...

    original title: will BE BACKUP OCCUR IF MY LAPTOP GOES TO SLEEP MODE? (WIndows 7)

    I have my laptop value backup at midnite.  I have the computer goes into "sleep" mode before.  Is my computer still backup as expected?

    You can get the Task Scheduler to wake him up.

    You can configure the backup form program timed task in the Task Scheduler with the game of "wake up to perform this task.  Depending on what you use for backups, the backup application can already use Task Scheduler & all you need to do is add the "wake up to perform this task" setting.

    To open Task Scheduler, type 'Planner' in the search box of the start menu.  Search in the left pane and select its library.  Browse the tasks in the list that has your backup program in its "Action" tab  Make a copy [a test version] 1 by clicking Export in the right pane & recording in an easily accessible folder, 2 when you rename the file in the selected folder [simply add 'Test' at the beginning of its name] 3 click on import in the right pane to bring in the copy renamed the task from the same folder.

    Now you can play safely & just disable the test version when you are finished.  The main change would "allow to wake up...." "and it's in the conditions tab.

    If it works, let the enabled test version & disable the original for a few days while you're fairly confident that the new version works.  Then you can delete one of them - but only after have exported them again if you know that you can recover later.

  • What printer goes into sleep mode computer stops

    just got a hp7520 as a gift. updated from xp to 7. If the printer goes into sleep mode, the computer shuts down.  currently I'm keeping the printer in demo mode so that it does not expire.  Anyone know how I can use printer without him turning off the computer in normal mode?  I talked about Noone has even heard of that happening.  I hope someone can help. Thank you!

    Hi @JNBLanocha

    My stomach says mt that perhaps you have the printer USB cable connected to a USB 3.0 port on your computer instead of a 2.0 port. The image below is some examples of 3.0 ports.

    3.0 ports are supposed to be backwards compatible, but I've seen questions arise.

    I wonder if the cable you are using is the computer and causing problems pulling power. All I can do at this stage is to assume and to gather information. Please post back with the answers to the following questions;

    1. You have a USB connection
    2. If the USB is connected, you use a 2.0 port or 3.0?
    3. Again, if you use a USB connection type, have you tried another USB cable? It could be a cable problem.
    4. You put XP or you remove XP and install Windows 7?
    5. You have your printer connected directly to a power outlet, or you are using a power strip/bar, or a surge protector?
    6. Now this may sound silly, but you have a timer on your computer, such as the hibernate after so many minutes and maybe the computer and the printer are set at the same, it is possible the moment closures / sleep coincide.

    I look forward to hear from you and to work towards a solution.

  • my notebook, ProBook 450 G2 go goes into sleep mode when well even parameters of energy set to never.

    My notebook, ProBook 450 G2 goes into sleep mode when well even parameters of energy set to never. The operating system is Windows 7 Professional.  I had a technician Microsoft verifiez_ the. I also had HP tech check the. They both said that it was a hardware problem. I sent it to HP to fix it and they replaced the motherboard and said that they have tested. When I came back, it entered into mode 'sleep' again. I left my laptop for about 15 minutes and when I came back it was in mode 'sleep'. This always occurs after the laptop remained for about 15 minutes.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    I sent my laptop repair HP. They replaced some cables and motherboard, but it does not solve the problem. They finally replaced the Windows 7 operating system. Basically they gave me a new system. I spent 3 days to update windows with all the updates and then re-loading of my programs. What a mess!

  • 64 bit Vista crashes when the system goes into Sleep Mode. Have cold start. Simultaneous began with the June 8 patches.

    This problem started a week ago, say at the time of the June 8 fix release. I think the relevant in case the log message is 'detected bad event COM + a system code back during internal processing. HRESULT is C 8007043 line 45 of d:\longhorn\com\Complus\src\events\tier1\eventssystemobj.epp. Error report, please contact Ms Product Support Services. "However, when I contacted MS, they would not help without paying the fees because it was an OEM installation. The system remains upward after the stabilization of the system going on in SafeMode after cold start, close and then switch to normal mode. However, once launched, it seem (ed) as the hard drive light was permanently. I did a restore to June 8, most early I could continue.  The hard drive worked without interruption after that.  I did a forced sleep and restart and the system froze again. With this in mind, I wonder if .NET patches that were released were running somehow at the time of sleep and that he could not recover.  OR, during sleep, the system was made of updates and the system has been disabled, corrupting the updates.  I looked at the Windows Update settings and it has been set to automatically install updates.  It is quite possible that the user did not know and did not recognize there are pending updates.  Maybe updates were not correctly packed in order to manage a system from going into Sleep Mode, while they were installing. In any case, any who would provide help on how to identify the problem and fix it.  There may be registry entries need to be corrected?

    Duane G. Leet, Ph. d. 45 years of experience in technology

    Microsoft support has provided a solution.  Here is the procedure:
    We can run reset Windows Update Tool and system update tool to detect incorrect manifests, files or data from the registry. Please follow the steps below.
    Step 1: Launch the tool to reset Windows Update and the update of the system tool
    1 download and run reset Windows Update Tool from the link below:

    2 download and run the update tool of the system from the link below depending on the Type of system:
    Update for Windows Vista 32-bit system tool
    Update for Windows Vista 64-bit system tool
    Note: It may take an hour or more time to detect and replace the erroneous data, please be patient. When it is finished, restart the computer and reinstall Windows Vista SP2.
    If Windows Vista SP2 can not always be installed, I suggest to download the stand-alone Installer and install it in clean boot Mode.
    Step 2: Download the installer of Windows Vista SP2 Standalone
    1 download the installer of Windows Vista SP2 Standalone from the link below depending on the Type of system:
    Windows Vista Service Pack 2 - version independent ALL languages for Windows Vista 32 bit (KB948465) (475,5 MB)
    Windows Vista Service Pack 2 - version independent ALL languages for Windows Vista 64 bit (KB948465) (745,2 MB)
    Step 3: Install Windows Vista SP2 in clean boot Mode
    Please disable all startup items and services of third parties at boot to avoid conflict when installing Windows Vista SP2.
    1. click on 'Start', type: MSCONFIG in the search box and press ENTER.
    Note: Click 'Continue' if the "User Account Control" window appears.
    2. click on 'Services', check "Hide all Microsoft Services" and click on 'Disable All' (if it's not gray).
    3. click on 'Start', click 'Disable all', click 'OK' and restart the computer.
    Note: Disable temporarily the startup group only prevents the start up programs from loading at startup. This should not affect the system or other programs. We can manually run these programs later.
    4. double-click the downloaded standalone installer and follow the instructions to install Windows Vista SP2.
    To restore the computer to a Normal startup, repeat step 1 above. Then click "Normal startup" in the general tab, click on "OK" and restart the computer.
    If there are any questions or concerns, feel free to let me know. It is my pleasure to be useful.

    The cause was not determined, but evidence tends to a disturbance in the download or installation process, with one of the errors in the event log is an error in checksum on one of the modules. With a large file, 745 meg, the mean time to failure on a LAN network is probably shorter than the download time.  The installation process was probably longer than the time that the system has increased...  Corrective actions for Microsoft could include more small download / install, not allowing an automatic installation for automatic download over a certain size, or deal with the best controls during installation to intercept the checksum error.  Duane G.
