My monitor won't wake up

I have a HP 6560 b with Windows 7.  Only in the last days, this problem.  When the monitor goes to sleep, I can't wake him up.  I can hear the computer wake up - the fan starts - but the screen remains dark.  I have to reboot to get to the back of the screen.

Any help is most appreciated.


Hello jorlofsky.

Have you noticed that the internal LCD screen waking up rather than the external monitor?

If the problem arose only in the last days you can also try to perform a Microsoft System Restore.  The steps are as follows.

  1. Restart your computer and press F11, until the recovery of load Manager.
  2. Select "Microsoft System Restore" under Advanced Options.
  3. Select a point before when the problem started.
  4. Check if the problem persists.

This should not affect the personal files other than those that are stored on your desktop.  So be sure to back up all the files on your desktop before performing these steps.

Let me know the result.  Have a great day.

  • HP 2311 x monitor won't sleep

    I have my system my computer Setup will put my monitor to sleep after 10 minutes if the computer is idle.  The problem is that my monitor will not fall asleep.  It shows the system status menu, scan for input device, said so he'll sleep, power light goes Orange and a few seconds later he wakes. Then start the whole process again and again.  If I put the system to sleep monitor goes to sleep (didn't at first when I got until I updated the driver of HP).  I connected it to the DVI plug.

    I changed and hooked it up to the VGA connection.  Set the computer up so the monitor going to sleep in a minute and waited.  Monitor went to sleep and not wake up until I moved the mouse.  Tested several times more and no problem.  So apparently there's something with connections DVI monitor won't sleep when you use this connection.

  • HP laptop (Vista Home Premium) won't wake up mode 'sleep'

    My HP Pavilion dv6910us laptop will follow the recommended power options and enter "sleep mode", as you want it or made-to-order... among the STARTUP options or by closing the lid.  However, once he is in "sleep" mode it won't wake up.  The LED on the power button flashes and the indicator on the chassis... but by pressing, open the lid or by touching the keys is useless... he wakes.

    To restart the laptop, I have to disconnect power, remove the battery and then connect the power/insert battery.  Needless to say, it causes Windows down and declare an unexpected shutdown during the power upward.  I did the research many resolutions... currently, my best solution is to change the power options so that when plugged the laptop doesn't go to sleep and then if I disconnect I have to shut it down... Rather, I don't have to go through this hassle all the time.

    I've followed many troubleshooting procedures... Updated BIOS update... Updated graphics driver... I even tried a "clean boot"... no additional services except for Windows services and has always had the same problem.

    Please... Help!

  • New U2413 monitor won't allow my Mac Pro computer to sleep

    My new U2413 monitor works fine. However, when I try to turn my Mac Pro (model 1.1, with OS 107.5) computer to sleep monitor goes to 'power save' mode that triggers the computer to wake up, the monitor return to power save mode, the back of the computer to sleep and so on. If I change the preferences of the computer to the monitor and the computer to sleep after 10 minutes, the monitor going to sleep, but the computer does not work. Any ideas? Is it possible to turn off the monitor power saving mode?

    I tried your suggestion to use an external USB key to monitor the connection. It works!  The computer and the monitor can now go to sleep at the same time. The only downside is that the auxiliary USB ports on the monitor is no longer connected to the computer. So, now I need a hub USB powered, connected to the computer, since I have more USB devices (card reader, USB stick or two, two scanners and two printers) that the USB ports on the computer.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

  • 10 updated Windows now HP Pavilion won't wake up from sleep

    Since I upgraded to W10 this week, my laptop now wake from sleep.  I searched on the net and so far cannot find people having problems with their laptop in standby.  I followed the advice of one of those on the HP forum, update a driver, that I thought could not wrong.  It made no difference, however.

    When I come to wake my computer, which was always simply lifting the lid, now nothing.  The power indicator lights up in solid and wifi lights up orange (as opposed to his usual white solid while the machine is running).  Other than that, noting.  No tapping of pressing or screen button any it will not bring to life, and the only solution is to hold down the power button to force a complete stop and start again.

    Can be only 3 days into it, but it's already driving me crazy.

    Any suggestions welcome!

    Thank you


    It is the way I got it to work.

    I made an iso of windows 10 Microsoft windows 8 and then downloaded factory restore and reinstalled.

    Yes, you will need to first save since you do a factory restore, but so far, he awakens from his sleep when the lid is opened or closed. Also seems faster start and stops correctly also, something he didn't have before. I did not try to roll back to 8 because I've heard of problems this. Don't know if it works for everyone, but it did for me. I hope for good. Will make it count if it changes so no one loses time try.

  • HP Pavilion 13-a113cl: computer HP Pavilion laptop won't wake up from his sleep by the keyboard or mouse

    I don't know if it is good advice to post this question in, but I'm having the same problem with two a113cl-13 laptops HP Pavilion running Windows 10 Pro (64-bit). The issue has to do with the awakening of the machines to sleep using the key on the keyboard or the mouse. I'm not having problems with them to wake up from sleep using the button of power or when I open or close them.

    I checked the BIOS and power settings are not there. (Version of BIOS F.32)

    I have checked boxes to allow devices to wake the computer in the management section of power without success.

    I changed the Intel MEI driver with 9.5 instead of 11 which is usually installed without success.

    I don't know if there is a problem with the BIOS and Windows 10 or something driver associated. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello @jpk717,

    Thanks for the information!

    Since you have formatted the drive, you must be unable to return to the old operating system, unless you use recovery media.  You can find your product here recovery media:

    USB - Windows 8.1 Recovery Kit 64B

    You can try to use the recovery media to install the original operating system and see if the problem is resolved.  If you choose not to go down this path, you can try to re - install Windows 10, using the media creation tool.

    I hope this helps.

    Have a great weekend!
