  • Computer won't sleep

    My computer won't go to sleep at home. On the road, it does exactly what I want - after 5 minutes, he made a screensaver of my photos for 30 min, then falls asleep. Home, that she won't, the screen stays on the home screen forever.  Help!

    I venture a guess that it is running on battery, on the road and connected to the House. You can define things upwards so that the computer handles things like the "sleep mode", etc., differently depending on whether or not it works on battery.

    The first thing you should do is, make sure that your power settings are the way you want.
    To do this:

    Place your mouse over the the battery icon on the taskbar and right click.

    Select "Power Options".

    (You can also access power options through the control panel: start > Control Panel > system and Maintenance > Power Options.)

    According to the plan used on your computer, click on "Change Plan settings".

    As you can see, there are two different columns of parameters here, one battery and one for hip. Make sure that the settings for each column are defined as you wish.
    You can access more advanced options by clicking on the 'change power avancΘs' link. Go through the list of parameters available with care, make adjustments if necessary. Click ok.

    Click "Save".
    If this does not resolve the problem, please let us know.

  • Problem with power options

    I always put my energy saver to be able to turn off my PC after 10 minutes.

    Press a key or move the mouse and it restarts.

    Recently he returned to power down then power on its own.

    I tried several times to reset and have even reset by default and does not...

    I have an ASUS and Windows 7 computer and had no problems with either until recently...

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for posting your query on the Microsoft Community.

    You did changes to the computer before the show?
    I suggest to remove the battery in case of a laptop and plug it in again and then check.
    You can run the troubleshooter of power to set your computer's power settings. The resolution of the problems of power check things as settings timeout of your computer, which determines how long the computer waits before turning off the display or enter the mode 'sleep'. These settings can help you save energy and extend the life of your computer's battery

    When I'm done for the day with my computer, I click on the power button that is preparing to sleep. Recently, I noticed when I wake my computer is also awake. Since then, I learned from my granddaughter that he wakes up around midnight.

    I am running Windows XP SP3 with RAM sticks of 256 MB (2) on an old eMachines T5026 desk top.  I added strips of RAM 1.0 GB (2) for the two slots open and computer would not start.  I tried with stick (1) 1 G and (2) 1 sticks and it still won't start.  I tried to mix and match the 256 with 1 G in each combimation, but it does not start.  Won't start with one or two sticks of 256.  Best Buy had PC3200 DDR RAM but the spec above States use PC2700.  Geek Squad says that PC3200 is OK instead of PC2700.  Is this the problem or I had to do something besides just insert new RAM?   Suggestions welcome.  Thank you.

  • computer won't start, replaced power has not set

    I had a problem for the last few weeks when I try to turn on 1 of my computers, initially, it would not just usually turn on and start. I would like to press the button and it would flick amber a second but not turn on. Sometimes it turns on after hours and the last times that the internet on it had become very slow, and yet the same internet worked fine on the computer that I use to post with. The computer itself was not slow, just the internet about it. I don't know how this could be related, but I guess it must be related to my problem given that the Internet is fine on my other computer. The fan on the computer also was not working but replace the PSU which set.

    Also, not sure if this is related, but until this problem occurs the computer freezes a lot and I have to force it off the coast. Or he would break himself. I don't know what message it would but it would go to the black screen of death and mention something about an internal clock, then restart itself.

    I removed the Mcafee antivirus software a few weeks before and downloaded Microsoft virus softwear on the same day. Other then that I did not any changes to the computer recently. I use a Dell Studio xps 435MT with vista. I checked and all drivers are updated.

    Here are the steps I did the last time that I was able to get on this weeks trying to understand the problem: I have run the dell diagnostic test and it detected no problems. I also looked in the event viewer, but there's a lot of mistakes, so I don't know if it could cause a problem. Memory diagnostics have been run, and no problem found there. A comprehensive analysis was performed as well and it detected no viruses.

    Since then, I've replaced the power supply and now instead of light, flicking a second flashing repeatable, yet does not turn upward. Fan works again tho so it's good, I guess.  Power supply is compatible and right hook. Before purchase power supply also bought the new point of sale, so that obviously wasn't the problem etiher.

    Please help me I need this computer works again one I am on now is much older and slower.


    I suggest you contact the manufacturer for further support as seems to be a hardware problem:

  • Problems with power options


    I have a HP Compaq 6200Pro MT i5-2400 with Windows 7 pro 64-bit.

    My problem is that if I leave the computer for 10 minutes, the screen goes black (turns off). When I touch the mouse or keyboard, the screen lights up again, and I have to log in again. It's very annoying. I want to keep it all the time.

    I tried to change the power plan in the Panel, but it seems to not work. The computer is not picking up changes I make.

    I tried to change the local policy gpedit.msc-> computer-> administrative templates > system-> power with the same result, nothing changes.

    I tried to see if he has installed a software of HP power on the computer, but I can't find.

    The strange part is that if I listen to Internet radio, the computer\monitor is all the time.

    Can someone help me with my problem?


    Check the following points.

    Open windows control panel, open personalization, click on the link on the bottom right and in the next window, screen saver set time "Wait" to a more acceptable figure and Remove the tick in the box next to "in curriculum vitae, the logon screen.  Click on apply, then Ok to save the setting.

  • Question about the power option "Sleep with a password on wakeup"

    What is the difference between sleep with a password required to wake up and lock? I understand that if I choose the lock, other users can still connect?

    Hello Jim,

    Please keep us updated on the status of the issue. I apologize for the late response.

    I would like to inform you that if you have not set a password on your user account, then Windows will not ask for the password to unlock or wake the computer from sleep mode. If you move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard, the computer will automatically unlock or to wake up the fashion 'sleep'.

  • Satellite L40 don't stop with power connected and is not in sleep mode

    Hello world. I hope someone can help me. Basically, there are two problems: one with judgment of the laptop (Satellite L40 - 17U (Vista 32 bit Home Premium SP1)) down when power is connected and the other with closing the lid and put it to sleep.

    1. in recent weeks, it all of a sudden won't stop, whenever power is connected. When it's on battery, it will stop. When the power is connected, and I try to stop, it seems that it closed down (all activity stops and the led goes off) for about 1 or 2 seconds, then it goes back.

    2. when I close the lid (all settings in Vista are set to put the laptop in a State of 'sleep' when the lid is closed), the laptop enters a State where it cannot be recovered by stopping by pressing the power button for 10 seconds to close completely. When closing the cover, only the battery LED continues to Flash orange (the way it should be), but apparently the laptop keeps consuming power, because when I restart later (first having to close as described above) tends to be quite an empty battery as it was before the next redΘmarrage it (like go from 100% to 65% in 30 minutes as "standby mode"). Also, when I open the cover, the other LEDS will on new (green), but nothing happens.
    After the restart first by pressing the power button for 10 seconds to close, I often get the message that Windows cannot be started and run the system repair.

    I just do a completely clean install with the product recovery CD (has not installed SP1 yet), updated to v1.90 BIOS, but the problem remains.

    I'm afraid that my only option will be to bring him away for a warranty repair, but knowing that these repairs can take weeks, I'd rather try a solution here could someone recommend me first. If you have any ideas, please let me know.

    Thank you
    Daniel Breslauer

    Hi guys

    Never had this problem on my laptop, but with regard to an other users here in the forum the BIOS might help solve such strange behavior for laptop
    To be honest the closed question is unclear for me I noticed a problem before on my laptop but the update of the BIOS helped.

    This is why I recommend update BIOS first.
    If the problem still appears, the ASP should take a look in the notebook.

    Good luck
