How can I make the computer sleep after 5 minutes of inactivity on the logon screen?

Original title: How to sleep in the login screen?

How can I make the computer sleep after 5 minutes of inactivity on the logon screen? Currently, on the login screen, white screen, but the computer is still running. Sleeping would save a lot of energy because the computer is used most of the time.

Hi Phil.Ganchev,
 
Using a laptop or a desktop computer?
 
The reason for this question is, if you have a plugged AC adapter you must set power accordingly as opposed to laptop settings battery operated.
 
I suggest you head over to the power settings and create your own power management.
 
a. power by clicking on the Start button, open the Options click on the Control Panel, clicking system and security, and then clicking Power Options.

(b) according to the plan you want to change, click on change plan settings.

c. on the parameters of change in the plan page, choose "Put the computer to sleep" that you want to use when your computer is running on battery (if applicable) and when it is plugged.
(Change in 5 minutes for the batteries and sector)

  • How can I make the full screen of the first rectangle in a vertical Parallax scrolling site?

    My site is www.train-nourish-talk.com.au

    As you can see I want to get the first rectangle (the one with the white background and the TNT logo) the size of the whole screen if you do not the following rectangle (subject of article) until you press the button about.

    I tried several ways to do this with no luck.

    Hi Katherine,

    There is no surefire way to achieve because it can vary according to the size/resolution of the screen. You can try to make a rectangle large enough, big enough to cover the commonly used screen size/resolution.

  • Re: Satellite A300 - how can I make the webcam work on Win7

    Hello everyone.

    I had Win Vista installed on this Satellite A300 and it worked well.
    I had no problem at all.

    Then I moved to Win7 and now I'm going through the test of the work of webcam.
    I tried to install all types of drivers, even those for A500, but it would be of no use.

    So, how can I make the webcam work on my A300?

    I've tried everything, even the installation of Ubuntu on this laptop and still it wouldn't work. If this is your interest, I'm under Win7 in Spanish, x 32, Home Edition.

    I really need your help here, please, I beg you, I spent 5 days ago almost try ANYTHING!
    And yet, I get the message after each installation/reboot of the: "the camara web esta disabled o ha Fall.» "Por favor, it check las web camara su configs", which would result in something like "the webcam is disabled or it has failed. Please check the configuration of your webcam. I've been browsing the forum for related issues, but I have not found any solution :(

    Thanks in advance,

    Ozma.

    Hello

  • How can I make the best use of a new external hard drive and a new catalog full of photos just loaded into Photoshop elements 14 Organizer?

    How can I make the best use of a new external hard drive and a new catalog full of photos just loaded into Photoshop elements 14 Organizer?

    Keep all the files on external hard drive image?  Nothing else and no pictures on the desktop?

    Keep all image files both places?

    What is the best way to go through thousands of images in the Organizer to identify and place them in files?

    Once I've placed a file, I just leave it in the entire catalog or a way indicate to me that it has been sorted?

    As overwhelming, any tips/shortcuts/schemes, you can offer are welcome!

    As I only have the version of the EP, here is some info on the organiser:

    https://helpx.Adobe.com/Photoshop-elements/how-to/use-elements-Organizer.html

    Independent of how this feature works, you want to have your photos in one place and have a backup (second copy) somewhere else. All hard drives will not be successful at some point - some more early, some late - never trust to have your files in any safety devices if they are on a single disc. Once you have your sorted, it would be useful that you will organize/name/tag new photos immediately if the task is relatively short and simple. I copy my photos on my internal hard drive for my camera, take a quick look with preview to see who needs some changes and then decide where to put them - either drop them immediately after naming them or bring in an editing application and then file them away.

  • How can I make the biggest impression

    How can I make the biggest impression on all Web sites? where is the setting? Thank you!

    To temporarily make more big, click on 'view' in the menu, then choose 'Zoom' & then it will allow you to set the zoom to larger or smaller.

    If you want to definitely bigger, if you have a Mac, click on 'Firefox', then 'Préférences' / If you have Windoze choose 'Tools', then 'Options' (both look the same from here...), then click the "Content" icon and change the font size.

    That should do it...

  • On another PC I want to save my favorites, but my browser Firefox does not work how can I make the backup, before I reinstall Firefox

    On another PC I want to save my favorites, but my browser Firefox does not work how can I make the backup, before I reinstall Firefox.
    Firefox cannot renew its tabs and now won't run and let me do a backup

    This may be considered to be solve my problem.
    I decided to uninstall the rogue program Firefox download and reinstall the same version (No. 8). I used Windows XP Add Remove programs who asked if I wanted to save the settings of Firefox until I uninstalled Firefox. I said yes and operated with the uninstall. I couldn't find a Firefox 8 so I went for the 12 version and installed on the laptop. This version 12 now works with all the passwords one favorite of the uninstalled 8.
    Thank you for all your help and advice.

    My 6s iphone shows that I have an unread email.  I have read and open any emails in my Inbox.  How can I make the 1 red go?

    Go to settings > Mail, Contacts, calendars > press e-mail account. Put the Mail DISABLE (display white side). To return to the home screen (it's essential!). Phone power off. Turn the phone to power back on. Mail switch must stay off - if enabled, you will need to repeat this process. If it is disabled, you did it right - turn it on and the 'ghost' post should have gone - for now. That they will probably come back until this bug is fixed permanently.

  • How can I make the tΓches play a mp3 file at some point please?

    I would like to that task scheduler to open windows media player and play an MP3 for me at a given time. I followed the instructions here, but nothing helps. The windows media player window does not open, but it does not play mp3.

    http://www.Vistax64.com/tutorials/132903-Task-Scheduler-create-task.html

    In the program/script box, I put in "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe '.

    In the Add arguments box, I put in: Wildlife.mp3

    At the beginning of area (optional), I put in: C:\Reminders

    which is a folder that I created in the C drive.

    Wildlife.MP3 file is of course in the C\Reminders folder.

    I have Windows 7.

    Hi cjohnm,

    You can use the 5 Lightroom Catalog and improve it in Lightroom 6, therefor all folders and collections will be identical in both version.

    Open the Lightroom all holding the key Alt/Opt and select only the 5 Lightroom Catalog and it will switch to it.

    Let us know if that helps.

    Kind regards
