Sleep mode troubleshoot

When my compaq presario V3618LA wakes up from sleep mode, instead of resuming windows, it restarts that whole system. it even sends an error message saying that windows wasn't shut down correctly, and offers me to open it in "safe mode". how can i fix that, and have a normal sleep mode, in which when it wakes up, it just resumes instead of restarting?

HP DC7800 doesn't wake up


Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity The computer will power-down and turn off unnecessary systems, including the monitor, while keeping the memory active so it can start back up quickly and still have all programs up that were being used prior to entering sleep mode. While this is a helpful feature that can extend the battery life of a laptop, it can result in errors where the computer won't power back up. You can usually solve the problem quickly.

Look for a sleep-specific key on the keyboard. It will usually be near the top row and have a symbol of a moon on it. Press this key as some laptops only respond to that command to come out of sleep mode. Press the "Enter" key to see if that will cause the computer to respond. Move the mouse back and forth several times and click the mouse button. Hold down the power button for 5 seconds if the previous methods have not worked. This is another common method for exiting sleep mode for many laptops. It may also trigger a full computer restart which would also solve the sleep mode problem. Unplug the laptop and remove its battery.
Reinsert the battery and then plug the laptop back in.

This should cause a full restart when the power button is pressed. Download the latest video drivers from the website for your video card manufacturer. Old drivers can sometimes cause problems with the laptop's power functions. See if your computer manufacturer has an updated BIOS on its website. The BIOS (basic input/output system) is the firmware that controls the initial boot processes for your laptop. Computer companies will release updated BIOS firmware if they get multiple complaints of boot or power problems. The BIOS interfering with Windows Power Manager is a frequent cause of sleep mode problems. Adjust your BIOS settings by rebooting the computer and pressing the appropriate function key when prompted on start up. It will normally be F1, F2 or F3, and you will often see a message during start up saying to press that key to enter the BIOS. Experiment with the BIOS settings by scrolling through the menu and locating Power Management. Increase the amount of time the BIOS allows before hibernating to make sure it is higher than the the Windows power setting. This can help eliminate conflicts between the BIOS and Windows concerning power shutdowns.

Computer goes in to sleep/ hibernate mode and I can not wake it up without shutting it off, and restarting


Hi,
If we are talking "hibernate", then that's what the computer does - it saves the whole memory contents on the hard disk and shuts down. You then have to power it up and it boots like always on power up, but instead of loading the system the usual way, it reads the hibernation file and restores the state in which it was when hibernated.
"Sleep" or "standby" mode is different - the system stops execution of all the running programs, switches the processor into low-speed, low-power mode, executing only the basic functions of waiting for wake-up signal. Depending on machine and settings, it will be woken up by keyboard event, system event (like laptop battery running out - time to hibernate), network activity, or the power switch.
It should wake up when the Fn key on keyboard is pressed, the lid is lfted up (if it was closed of course), or when you momentarily press the power button. If it does not, then something is wrong with your ACPI/Power Management setup, and/or there are some drivers missing or corrupt. You can try going to IBM/Lenovo website and looking for updated system drivers for your model.

Sleep and standby


Well... Sleep and Standby are not the same. While Sleep only turns off a few things, like display, WiFi, and HDD to save energy. Standby saves your session to the Hard Disk, the reason why the laptop seems unresponsible. This is the reason to uncheck Stanby if you want a fast wake-up.

My speakers work but my headphone jack won't


The Solutions that will mostly work :

1) Go to sleep mode - wake up ! - tada !! the headphone jack will work again .. I know it sounds crazy.. i had the same problem.. (ie speakers onboard worked while headphones jack didnt work) usually restarting solves any problem, but this time even a restart did not worked while putting the laptop on standby(sleep) mode and waking it up worked !!

2) If the above does not work, uninstall the sound drivers from device manager - restart the computer - then let windows detect appropriate drivers by itself. Sometimes the Sigmatel drivers(which are provided by manufacturer) do not work well compared to windows vista's HD sound drivers. May solve the issue... Do not worry doing this, in the worst scenario you can always download and reinstall the dell drivers from dell support page.

Please update on sutarianiral@gmail.com if the problem gets solved..

Check in your bios for the power settings - your laptop is likely set to wake on lan or some other hardware. Also, check in the windows power management for the settings in there.

Waking up after going to sleep


I have had similar problem. I found, by trial and error, that using Windows hibernate mode actually works every time! Windows makes a "System screen shot" and stores it on hard drive and then powers off. Just be aware that you must ensure enough hard drive space for this. I am using this mode every day now.
