Windows 7 machines taking several minutes to return power save mode

I wonder why Windows has never addressed this failure, and if anyone knows a workaround solution.

My desktop Linux Mint can be in standby mode, but once you shake the mouse connection screen appears on the right and once you put the password and press enter it takes all of 3 seconds for you to have a completely awake and functional office.

Try to do the same on a Windows machine and it takes 2 to 3 minutes for that all to wake up completely.

Does anyone know of a way around this failure of Windows?


Hello Arnold,.

Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

I understand you have questions after the release of the standby or hibernation in Windows mode. We will certainly help you with the same.

You can try to follow the following suggestions to solve the problem.

Stage: Start the computer in safe mode in which the computer starts with the basic drivers and no program third.


Step b: If the problem not persists in Mode safe mode then run clean boot mode in order to check if any third-party application is causing the problem, as the clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

Note: Referring to "How to reset the computer to start as usual after a clean boot troubleshooting" under more information to prepare the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting.

Also check if the video card drivers are up to date. Install the latest drivers for video card for Windows 7.

  • Windows XP/Skype/power save mode

    I'm on a Dell desktop computer with windows XP Edition version 2002 Service pack 3 family - which of course the warranty has expired.
    I have a Logitech C615 camera and have the latest version of Skype.  I can connect to Skype and stay there without any problem.
    However, when I'm on a video call, it automatically changes to the mode - no code error saving.

    I spoke with Dell, Logitech and my cable company - all who have told me that the problem is with Skype and Windows XP.
    I spoke with the service of Microsoft's response and the person I spoke to studied the issue and came back on the line and said
    "ok, this is what to try." Then we have been disconnected.  When I called back, of course, I had another person,
    had to go through the spiel all over again.

    This time, I was told I had a problem with advanced troubleshooting and will have to pay $99 to get my fix. NOT.

    Then he told me that I could fix it myself if I went out on the answers.

  • U2515H, stop 5 minutes power saving Mode message?

    I have a new Dell U2515H monitor and a new computer 6i7kyk of Nuc Intel running Windows 10.  When I send the computer in standby mode, the annoying message "this display will enter Power Save mode in 5 minutes' appears on the display for 5 minutes before the screen darkens finally.  I want a standby computer to initiate screen-watch immediately.

    Unfortunately, this is not possible. When the computer starts "standby" mode, it is electronically 'disconnect' the monitor cable. You can see on the U2515H user's Guide page 47, that the message is by design.

  • My laptop locked after I use it for several minutes.

    Hello world

    I have a really annoying problem.

    My laptop is locked after I use it for several minutes.

    When I say locked, I want to say it is the place where shows my account name and below it says locked.

    As a first step, I think it is caused by the automatic locking of cuz I'm really annoyed by this last, I uninstalled it.

    However it still does not.

    Could someone tell me what the problem is on the Earth?

    It's maybe just because I really don't know with my new laptop.

    It's a power setting that determines how long before its entry in the screen saver, sleep more, or even in hibernation mode. You can change the requirement for a password (somewhere in the Windows screen saver section) or the duration before entering these modes (you should be able to define with the Lenovo Power Center thing). Of course, making one is a security risk, but it is up to you as to how much safety or comfort desired.

    1 when was the last time it was working fine?

    2. did you of recent changes on the computer?

    Sound like a hardware problem.

    Don't forget to have only one major security/antivirus on the computer program, much
    less running. Uninstall the extras and check their managers for removal tools be
    that there is no harm because of the remains.

  • Windows 7 is extremely slow to return to the screen saver mode.

    I installed upgrading Windows 7 on my computer and everything is fine.  However, when the system is idle and past in mode screensaver (with or without a password), the return of the screen saver mode are extremely slow (just a white screen).  It is sometimes quick, sometimes it comes back in 3-4 minutes, but most of the time it takes a long time.

    The system is a low end, but more than enough to manage w7.  It consist of:
    Pentium dual core (2140)
    2 gig memory
    NVIDIA 7300GT 256M

    I tried to delete the zone alarm security suite, does not solve the problem
    thought it was the HP 2610 print software, removed and still happens.
    update the bios (MSI p4m900)

    can someone figure this.  Is there something that prevents him to return to the desktop.

    Note that, I try to reboot from the blank screen by pressing the windows, right arrow, return.  But I think also, it does not address key strokes.


    I found a way to fix it! I did this:

    1. Press win + r and run msconfig. Go to tools and brand to troubleshoot the computer, and then click Start.

    2. then go to system and security and press electricityballance (not sure of the name in English because I have a Norwegian version..).

    3. restart your computer.

    4. my screen saver was not afterwards, but I gave it to display photos and now it works perfectly!

    When I checked the general tab afterwards, it did not have the checkbox to use the... start (a last..) one has been verified and the second has a blue full mark.

  • Icons displayed incorrectly at startup, the computer is unusable for several minutes

    My computer is less than a year, I'm running Windows 7 Professional, and for several weeks my computer acted strangely. When I turn on the screen displays properly, however some or all (it seems to change every time) of my icons appear as these things white paper folded. It continues for several minutes during which I can't run any programs, but I can use my mouse pointer and the loading symbol when I move the taskbar. After a 5-10 minutes (I've not timed, but it might be compatible), the icons to revert to the normal and my computer seems to work perfectly well. Any idea what the problem might be?

    When a Windows computer starts in place, some of the non-Windows installed on the computer programs also starts alongwith. In your case, it seems that some of these startup programs is responsible for the delay. You can disable startup programs and services non-Windows on the computer by placing the computer in what is called a "Clean-boot". If the problem does not appear in the clean boot state, you can track Windows service start defective or not programme following a policy of division and conquere.

    This process takes a little time. I would say by following the instructions in the following article to diagnose the problem:

    Hi soveryconfused,

    Follow these methods.

    Method 1: Run the troubleshooter of power.

    Method 2: Follow the steps in the article.

    Method 3: Perform a clean boot to see if there is a conflict of software like the clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.
