My LG optimus keeps getting stuck in sleep mode. When I turn it on it seems fine but once it enters sleep mode it won't turn back on. I have to restart the phone to get a picture again. Any tips?


Is it ''sleep'' mode or ''Hibernate'' mode? If ''Hibernate'', then that is the problem. Turn off ''hibernate.'' If it is in fact just ''sleep'' mode, check to see if it is set for ''enter password to exit sleep'' _and_ you don't have a password set up... then either create a password or set it so that it does not require a password upon exiting sleep. Also, you can always resort to resetting everything to ''default'' settings. (This will not effect any data on the phone, and you can take your time setting all the settings ''just right'').

VPCSA does not properly go to sleep / hibernate


My advice is to shut down and unplug the Laptop when not in use. Set the Power Options to High Performance, set Sleep and Hibernate to never, adjust your Advanced Power to shut down when lid is closed. A reboot everyday resets the computer and IF there is a Power Surge your Laptop will not get fried. If left plugged in the battery COULD malfunction and become a fire hazard. Not to mention the unnecessary power applied to components and shortening their lifespan.

cant get power saving mode off


Step 1:
Sleep Mode b> Sleep mode is primarily used with home computers (desktop computers). Sleep mode is designed to save the current work, programs, and settings of your computer using your computers memory, while using very little power. b> Hibernate Mode b> Hibernate mode is primarily used with laptop's. Hibernate mode is designed to save your computers current state on to the hard disk, then turn off your computer to stop using power completely. This mode is usually used when you do not plan on using your laptop for an extended amount of time. Benefits b> Using Hibernate mode is more power-efficient, but files may become fragmented over time by using this mode frequently. Sleep mode does consume more power, but the advantage that Sleep mode has over Hibernate is that it does not take as long to resume your computers former state when you are ready to continue using it.

I have winows vista and it takes a few minutes for my pc to shut down and startup how can i get it to shut down and start up faster


Forget it, it takes what it takes. There is an idea of an external drive, that can be rigged that helps, but It is a waste of resoruces.
Consider using sleep mode, for faster cycling and only shutdown when you actually need to. If this is a laptop, consider hibernate. Both sleep and hibernate focus on faster start ups, but on laptop, if you use sleep and run out of battery, you can loose data that you were working on. ALWAY save and backup.
