How can I get the screensaver to stop after a few minutes, while the screen turns off.

original title: computer sleeps

I leave my computer on all night.  When I'm done with it for the day, after 5 minutes, the screen saver turns on.  How can I get the screensaver to stop after a few minutes, while the screen turns off.  What we call that?  Sleep is - this Mode?  Hibernate? Thank you!

  • Equium A100-027: can not get the screen turns off automatically in Vista


    Got one of the new A100-027 of the load with Vista a couple of weeks. I can't get the screen to stop automatically when the appliance is left unattended. Standard windows screen saver or power options makes no difference. The screen is always on when I get back to the schedule of the machine later, I don t want to put a 'sleep' mode because the machine is internet access.

    In desperation I changed the option to close the display does not go into mode 'sleep', but it would be nice if the screen would make her s auto off, instead of having to close the screen every time.

    Thank you very much

    A bit of an update, I found the screen stops automatically in normal conditions. But then, I leave the computer running a program of file sharing peer-to-peer on the net that he will not cut the screen down. Even minimize the program doesn t allow the screen to close.

  • How can I get the SecureWebBHO malware off 33.03 FIrefox

    I use Firefox (version 33.03 now) as my main web browser. Recently, a number of regularly visited sites started acting strange. I also get random pop ups telling me that I need to update my video player, or the version of Java (my version is current). I checked the "add ons" in the menu control, nothing seems out of place (2 nVidia 3D Vision plugin, a VLC Web plug in, an OpenH264 CAP in Cisco). I pulled the top 11 IE to see if it had the same problem. He did. When I opened menu IE control and is gone to 'Manage Add-ons', he showed the BHO SecureWeb from a company called Jelbrus LLC. I disabled it in IE 11, and it runs correctly. I ran Windows Defender on a complete analysis. It says that there is 1 point, he says that she deleted. I ran the MalwareBytes Anti-Malware freeware version. It is said that he found 2 registry problems and a PUPPY (probably an unwanted program). Asked to quarantine problems. Problem persists try with Firefox, ONLY. My questions are: a) why is he not appear as an add-on or extension or a service? and (b) how can I get rid of this?


    Other information points:

    -The problem reappeared.

    -J' downloaded and executed Offline defender of Microsoft today. It has been downloaded with a separate, non-infected, serious computer on DVD, and then I booted from the DVD player on infected patients * computer. Performed a full scan on the infected * computer and let it run in full. No infections found.

    -Restarted Windows 8.1 Upgrade 1. Open FIrefox. Problem still there. Went in the menu control, watched the Add-ons and extensions. Nothing showed up. Went to the extensions. Did a search and downloaded NoScript. Closing Firefox. Restarted Firefox and the problem disappeared.

    Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most of the modules.

    (If you use it, switch to the default theme).

    • Under Windows, you can open Firefox 4.0 + in Safe Mode holding the key SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac, you can open Firefox 4.0 + in Safe Mode holding the key option key when starting Firefox.
    • Under Linux, you can open Firefox 4.0 + with leaving Firefox then go to your Terminal and running Safe Mode: firefox-safe-mode (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)
    • Or open the Help menu and click on the restart with the disabled... modules menu item while Firefox is running.

    Once you get the pop-up, simply select "" boot mode safe. "

    If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to understand that one. To do this, please follow article Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems .

  • How can I get the screen adapters?

    I just got this old Tower after moving... load the windows xp disc with what he came... seems that it does not load the graphics cards... There is no subject in the Device Manager... it only picks up the card while it is plugged... I have been through the system and can not find anything to do with the device...

    The rocks of XP has track you on the right.

    But there are a few weird things...

    Information on the system that you are using an Intel 82810 Graphics adapter... but as near as I can tell, the motherboard for Dell XPS Gen 2 is not any graphical support integrated: and

    You say that your graphics card is a Radeon 4670, but according to Dell, the XPS Gen 2 came with a Radeon 9800 Pro, a Radeon 9800 XT or an nVidia GeForce 5200.

    Your old tower again, you may have been improved.  If you really have a Radeon 4670 AND it is in the agp slot (there's a pci-e version of the Radeon 4670), you can download a driver here-->

    And I don't really understand your list of 'components removed,' which is a combination of hardware and software.  It's one thing to delete "Internet games" or "music samples", but I do not understand what is meant by removing Ethernet (LAN), Modems, graphics cards, etc. (and I would be very surprised if a tower as the XPS had same "Wireless Ethernet (WLAN)" in the first place.

  • Gmail button (in internet explorer) keeps having moved to the right in my taskbar when I wasn't staying on the left (that's why I first open). How can I get the taskbar buttons to stop randomly to reorganize and stay in order?

    Gmail button (in internet explorer) keeps having moved to the right in my taskbar when I want to keep it on the left (that's why I first open).  How can I get the taskbar buttons to stop randomly to reorganize and stay in order?  I'm talking about the buttons on list of my open applications and documents in Windows Vista.  The bar tasks are "locked", but the button of the window open with gmail in internet explore reappears suddenly in the good moments apparently random.

    It is in the middle part of the taskbar (what I found online so far is on the start menu, the quick launch area or area/system tray of notification, the location of the taskbar in full, either about grouping taskbar - I disabled because I would like to separate).  Can anyone help?  I don't understand why this is happening (or why microsoft would never do).

    Lock the taskbar that it prevents to be moved elsewhere on the office and maintains the different sections where they are - it does not block the tabs showing what is open where they were when they were opened.  There is no control for this function.  Maybe if you uncheck similar taskbar buttons group it will help, but I honestly don't know (and fear he won't make any difference - it may even make things worse).  This also happens to me and I was unable to find an answer.  I think that there are more than just random, but I can't telll you why he moves the legs periodically (sometimes it works fine all day and other days it happens almost immediately).  But still, there is no control for this function, so there is no way to tell him to keep a specific order or to lock an established order, once it has been created.  I suspect that it happens because the notification area icons appear and hide and new programs open and close and which changes the amount of space available and so he rearranges things so that they match and apparently does not always consider the original sequence in which the elements have been added.  Maybe if you remove the Quick Launch toolbar and then add again, the order will reset (but that I know not - probably not in the original sequence, which I doubt is logged nowhere - it did not work when I tried it).

    Unfortunately, I don't have a solution to this problem (and I spend a little time looking for even before myselff posed the question) and do not believe that there is a.  It is also unfortunate that you can't move them so they can be put back in the right order if they change.  I don't think that there is nothing wrong with your system or that it is something that can be repaired or fixed - it's just the way it is and we just have to live with it.  I don't know any 3rd party software that controls the order of tabs open in the taskbar program (but you can check out Bing, Gooogle,www.tucows.comand to see if I'm wrong on this - here n "t all when I looked trying to solve this problem for my own system).

    I'm sorry it wasn't what you wanted to hear, but it's like that.  I don't know if it's different in Windows 7.

    Good luck!
