  • 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.

  • Satellite L650 does not start sometimes the Power button

    Sometimes when I press the button works / starting the fan of laptop and the laptop does not start.
    However when I press once again lights up.
    This does not depend on how long you keep holding the power button so that it starts.
    Anyone facing this problem.

    Thank you.

    What exactly do you mean by does not start?
    Is this means that the laptop has been closed or has been set to standby or hibernation mode?

    Are you able to see the Toshiba start screen when you switch on the device?
    If fans hang on this means that the laptop has been put under tension, and then you the OS should start to initialize.

    PS: usually it s no matter how long the power button could be pressed. Briefly press (1 sec) should turn on the laptop.
    But if you do not want to power OFF using the Notepad works / stop, then you will need to tap more long time 4 sec long but it is not recommended that this reset should be made only if the OS hang

  • power led on the rear of the computer the power button / stop turns on, then turns off.

    I have a HP TouchSmart 610-1015xt.  The light on the transformer power is on, but not exactly brilliant (I think it's good, but not sure).  The light next to the power input is on.  When I plug in the power, the power led lights up for a couple / few seconds then turns off and does not turn.  At no time the computer capable of running and it does no whether noise (no fans, no beeps, no attempt to start.

    Any suggestions?

    Figured it out.  Apparently I have reset the battery internal and then unplugged the power button circuit and then he started upward.  The only problem is that now it will restart automatically every time it is closed or even sleep.  I'll start another forum on this issue.

  • HP Pavilion DV7 laptop: Touchpad, sometimes active, even when the power button is pressed on off (light orange)

    I use a wireless mouse (or a wired mouse) preferably instead of the touchpad.   The touchpad has a power button to press - white light indicates on and off Orange light.    After booting, I usually disable the touchpad and mouse wireless, however, sometimes when you type I realize my palms are contacting the touchpad and the cursor jumps around accordingly.    The touchpad is disabled (orange light) but I can control it with a finger, it works like its supposed to as if it is enabled.     Any ideas?   I have not downloaded a driver updated or do anything to try to solve this problem, as I fear, it could actually cause other problems.

    Update the driver it is the usual Council for problems - that is the solution here?   Has anyone else had a similar problem.    Most of the touch pad problems I've read is in regards to an erratic touchpad - nothing to do with 'on' or 'off' problems.

    HI @WayneCM,

    Thank you for your inquiry. I will do my best to help you!

    I understand that you use the power button / stop to turn off the touchpad.  Sometimes, you will notice that your palm is in contact with it and the cursor is accordingly jump around but the rest light orange, to show that he has disabled.  Here is a link for HP Notebook PCs - using the touchpad and ClickPad (Windows 10). Please review the section on "Open the properties of the ClickPad" in figure 4, you'll see there's a button where you can disable the touchpad, until you want to reactivate it. Please let me know if this helped.

  • Satellite 1005: Push the power button, will turn off the AC power.

    Laptop: Toshiba Satellite 1005

    Problem: When I press the power button and let go, the laptop immediately loses all power.

    I use the power cord plugged into the laptop, the power supply light is green, but when I press the power button and let go, as soon as the power light goes black(turns off), nothing happens.

    Howerver, if I PRESS the power button without letting go, power LED lights, but the laptop won't boot at all, no Startup logo, no sound no matter what.

    It's the second time this has happened, the first time, I let stand overnight and the next day she booted up fine.

    Currently, the laptop is cold, it did not work, but always the same thing as described above.

    There are no changes made to the laptop.

    Any ideas?

    It seems that the contact, the power button is faulty. Better to elevate the laptop to a Toshiba service station for a check.

    I n ' t´t think that it is a software failure.

    Good bye

  • Two Macbook Pro, both does not start up, when I press the power button, I hear two disc bit Caryl, I see little light on the front on the displasy release button, black screen, no edge

    It was weird because I've NEVER had two computers have the same problem before. They are the model 2008 2.2 Ghz Core 2 Duo, 6 g of RAM, models of 128 GB of hard drive, the two Yosemite running, both had new hard drives, cables, batteries and RAM installed OWC (Apple approved reseller) and I use Macs for at least 20 years. In about a week, one just blacked out while sitting on my desk doing nothing, the other does the same on a week later. When I press the power button, I hear the drive hard hum twice, then all I get is the little light on the screen release button, that's all. Black screen. fails, nothing. I can press the power button and it will fit off the coast. Is it possible that some of them have infected somehow, or possibly send me the malware that has infected my system? I would not normally only, but for all of them to go down to one right after the other with the same problem just made me think, it must be the same cause, but what?  I had been in a war of fire recently with very ugly people, and I've never seen two Macs have the same exact problem in a row like that right.

    I took readers on the Macbook Pro, put them on sleds and threw them in my PowerMac, and both seemed fine, no problem, started well upward, ran utility disk on them, no problem, so I started to the checklist. Reset the PRAM. Nothing. SHIFT key at startup. Nothing. D at the start. Nothing. V order at startup. nothing. I wouldn't mind even their evisceration and making a portable useful with the parts of the two, but until I find out what the problem is, what can I do?

    If anyone has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it, I've supported every button I can think at the start, tried an inch USB key, boot and disk, this is the same Caryl bit both of the car, no chime, black screen, that's all.

    Thanks for your help.

    I don't think they are infected.

    The startup chime indicates that the Mac has made the initial diagnostic tests and there is no hardware problems or fundamental software.

    No edge in your case is a problem.  I think it's the luck of the draw to have 2 failures.
