"Sleep" mode only works for a minute


I've recently set up a HP Pavilion a6530f PC and it seems to work very well.  When you press the symbol of the 'Moon' on the keyboard to put the computer in standby mode, it goes into the mode 'sleep' as it should.  The only problem is that after about 2 minutes, the computer returns, so not really enter the mode "sleep" and leaving the computer on when I don't want to.  Does anyone know how to get the "sleep mode" actually stay in mode 'sleep'?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Well, it is supposed to wake up if the mouse moves, etc. so if you walk by, or a heavy truck driven by could wake up. You can lower the sensitivity of your mouse or shut down then upward on the moving mouse feature.

Moreover, I say this because I think that a6530f is that a desktop PC has so probably a connected mouse. You are in the Notebook forum however.

  • Synchronize the dictionary of data with model only works for models imported?

    When I imported data dictionary model (file-> import-> data dictionary) then in relational model the two buttons "Synchronize Data with Model Dictionary" and "Synchronize model with Data Dictionary" works very well.

    But when I model created from scratch and I'm clicking on the buttons "Synchronize data dictionary with the model" or "Synchronize model with Data Dictionary" nothing happens.

    It works only for models imported?

    (Data model EA 3.3)


    Yes, Synchronize only works for objects that were imported to the original (like Synchronize uses the information entered during the import to determine which database connection and the database object to compare to).

    If your model is not imported, you can achieve the same effect as follows:
    -Open the template in Data Modeler and also open the relevant physical model.
    -Do an Import of data dictionary, select the objects you want to compare with that.

    After the import phase, this will display the dialog box to compare, showing the differences between the objects imported from the database and your model.

    Note that if you intend to generate the DDL to update your database of the difference (as in "synchronize with Model Data Dictionary"), you must select the "Swap Target Model" option in step 2 (select database schema) data dictionary import wizard.


  • Toshiba 32W2433DG auto stop signal only works for the analog TV

    I recently bought a 32W2433DG led TV.
    This TV has supposedly auto signal feature where if no signal is found for 15 minutes, the TV is supposed to go in standby mode.

    However, the only way I've seen this work, is if the TV is on analog TV.
    None of the other methods of entry, either digital like hdmi or analog as the SCART, don't trigger the minute 15 none of signal strength.

    Surely, this must be a bug in the firmware?

    I wouldn't mind this problem IF I could get the TV to go to 'snow' (the method of analog TV input) after having turned off my hdmi device, but unfortunately, it seems that want to switch to analog tv after using another entry SOMETIMES turn off a unit SCART.

    I also wouldn't mind, if the regular automatic power down when idle could be reduced by default 4 hours to say 1 hour.

    The file firmware would be somehow modded to allow energy standby more short time (run it via a hex editor?)?

    I don t think that the firmware could be modded or edited by joint customers of TV.
    If new firmware is available, you should be able to download the file from the Toshiba page: http://www.toshiba-om.net/firmware.php

    I suggest you to follow these steps and check if that helps:

    Method 1:
    Start the computer in safe mode and check if the same problem occurs:

    Method 2:
    If the computer works fine in safe mode, then I suggest you perform the check and clean boot if this can help:

    NOTE: When you are finished troubleshooting, make sure that you reset the computer in start mode normal such as suggested in step 7 of the above article.

  • Control values defined by the Index function only works for a running VI?

    I've never used set of control values based on the Index before so I decided to compare it against two other ways to set the controls on the front panel, by using the invoke Ctrl.Val.Set node and nodes for the value property. But if the VI which I am trying to set the controls does not work I get error 1000 say "The VI isn't in a State compatible with this operation." When I run the VI which I am trying to set the controls, I get an error. This is VI really only work if the VI is running? I can't set the values before calling the VI to run dynamically?

    I wonder why you do so in the first place.

    a bit of history. This feature was added to the problem write to items in front by reference is about 1000 times slower than writing to the Terminal. I think that this feature works by writing directly to the transfer buffer. It always ends up by being slower than writing to the Terminal, but only about 10 times slower.

    My company made use of this new feature. We needed it because we have updated thousands of values of frontage on the same VI by reference and labview couldn't keep it up (Yes, probably could have worked around him in a different way, but there is more detail than this...). If your ' e does not update thousands of articles, probably you should not use this feature. Performance savings is not worth the additional development effort it takes.

    It does not work probably because the transfer buffer does not exist when the vi is not running

  • Flash player only works for a single user on the PC

    I'm running a PC with Windows XP and IE8 there are two accounts on the PC, one for me and one for my wife, we are both members of the Administrators group on the computer. It was that I installed everything on my account. Then he was asked to update Adobe once, the installation failed, and since it does not work on his account.

    I've been through the knowledge base and uninstalled using the Adobe cleaning tool. I haven't used any other third-party tool, although I use the microsoft file to clean the registry. I even went up to now as uninstall adobe all other relevant documents and turn off my Norton antivirus to do a reinstall.

    I do not have or that run the system only works antivirus.

    The flash drive installed large on my journal, like the installation of ActiveX. It worked great (for me) when my wife recorded it did not work. So I ran the Adobe clean uninstall once again and then tried to install my wifes log. Installed fine but adobe flash activeX will not settle, it fails to half way through.

    I then go to my login and it installs and works for me, but not on hers.

    Any ideas would be really helpful

    Thank you

    I had a similar problem except Flash worked on some sites on one account administrator and all sites on the other. After deleting Java and re - installing and removing the Flash and reinstalling still had the same problem on this account of an administrator.

    I then deleted the history of full navigation on the account that did not work and 'Bingo', it worked. Who knows? Don't know what actually helped but remove history solved the problem in the end. Sometimes the simplest things solve the problem?

  • How can I get Vista navigation pane to only work for a specific folder view?

    I am running Windows Vista classic folders. Significant irritation is that I want to have the navigation pane enabled for the _only_ in my computer/Windows Explorer folder. I don't want that it activated for other folders with groups of icons for programs.

    But I find that when I turn it on for the first folder, it becomes activated for all. On the other hand, if I turn it off for a program icon folder, it is disabled for all files, including the Windows Explorer.

    So, how to customize the navigation pane to make it work for a folder specific _only_?

    The other models are for music or photos or videos or Documents (and I can't remember the fifth).  They show the different columns and present different data sorted differently.  I don't think they will solve your problem.

    Some general information here is on models and how to set any records that might be of interest to you (but will not solve your problem, I think):

    Here's how to change the default template for a folder: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/70819-windows-explorer-folder-view-settings.html.  Default behavior is to select the model based on the first type of file placed in the folder (you must choose something).  Vista sets the folder type template according to what are the types of files in the window and the settings display window Explorer. This will show how to reset the display settings for the Windows File Explorer, disable Automatic folder Type Discovery (which is I think what you want)and increase the folder display the cache to make Vista do not forget the display settings, the folder type template, the size or the position of a specific window for when it was still closed to the location of specific path.

    It does not work with the Sub record under, Open with, open in a new tab (Internet Explorer), etc... dialog windows of type through the good File menu bar item. These don't seem to be able to have their size or their position to recall. For the latter, you can use the free program http://autosizer.en.softonic.com/ to resize them.

    Here is another article on how to modify the columns in Windows Explorer and sort in Vista: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/108665-column-customize.html.  This will show you how Add, Remove, move, change the widthand change the sort order of the columns in Windows Explorer in the way that you want.

    Here is another article on how to change the display of the default folders in Vista (but she argues, it is not a perfect solution and can revert to the previous behavior is not as good as the two prior links provided: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13880_3-10019957-68.html.)

    I hope this helps in your situation.

  • Pavilion Slimline lock up in sleep mode-fan works high not lights up unless I pull the power cord 1

    New HP Pavilion Slimline desktop 400-314 - mode 'sleep' sometimes cause to lock the computer, the power light is on, the fan runs at the top.  Only way to unlock the computer is to hold the power button for 5 seconds.  I wait 15-20 seconds, then press the power button to wake it up.  Immediately the computer restarts to the top with solid power light and the fan turns at the top.  The only way to break this vicious circle must first pull the power cord to the rear, wait 30 seconds and plug it in again.  This time, when I turn on the computer it goes off just fine.

    Is this a BIOS problem?  Please help as I don't have that much hair left.

    * Solved * Finally!  After 8 grueling days of pain staking agony and incessant attempts to fix this thing, I finally solved my problem.  I spent countless hours on the phone with HP support and nothing resolved.  That is: the problem with this computer locking up and sending the fan at high spin was due only with external speakers. When you reset the power system disconnected to boot the system, he would normally go for at least half a day before locking up.  I discovered that the speakers are older than 15 years. It's funny, these speakers worked fine on a desktop HP 2004 previous Pavilion running on Windows XP.  Now, it's static build-up that caused my death or something else?  As far as I know, it's that I'm a happy camper using headphones with a new system of HP that finally works.  Thank you to everyone who made suggestions.

  • Key 3 C often does not work for several minutes after the start, the other keys work fine.

  • "Scan to computer" the printer only works for admins

    HP Officejet 6700, OS X Lion. Latest version of the software.

    Only admin users can scan the printer using the screen touch "Scan to Computer".  The non-admin users get communication errors. The computer is listed and after choosing works very well if the admin user is the active connection. But if a standard user is the current user, then it does not work. Scanning HP utility does not connect on the standard user account to "Activate the Scan of the computer". That translates into a communication error. But return to the admin, and it connects.

    Surely, it works in a context of user multi for non-admins. Do the other admin users is not an option.

    Standard users can use the HP scanning app on the computer, but the family loves the conveinence of the button "Scan of the computer. Its a nice feature. But seems broken.
