My Mouse icon is jumpy and when returning from sleep or hibernation screen goes bad.

After clearing my Vista Home and reloading it on my Inspiron 1501 the mouse is very jumpy any causes me to click and drag where I don't want and is almost unusable because of it. Also after returning from sleep mode many lines go horizontally across the screen making it hard to see anything to reboot to correct the problem. Please help. Thank you

I put my Dell Dimension 9200 XPS 410 into sleep mode after connecting a wireless keyboard and mouse and the only way to wake it is to hold the power button in until it shuts off and then switch the power...


I would say it is in the Hibernation Mode To get it out of this mode you need to go to your Control Panel, open "POWER OPTION'S" and deselect the Hibernation mode then reboot.

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.

I have vista on my dell inspiron 531s. Once it goes into hibernation, it won't come out of it when I move the mouse. I have to turn it off without powering down correctly. How do I fix this?


If it didn't used to be a problem, but now is, and you've added some program recently, try removing that program. Other than that, the solution is probably too difficult to track down, so open the power settings in your control panel and set the power savings mode to never, never, never to keep it from hibernating.

You can turn Sleep and Hibernate off in Windows but this sounds like it might be your Bios putting the system to sleep. In windows go to power options and turn sleep and Hibernation off but double check your Bios as well for a possible setting there that will put the computer in sleep or Hibernate mode.

Video not waking from sleep mode, can I slap a card in this machine?


Sleep mode is problematic in Windows XP and always has been. It works well on some computers and not on others. Before looking at the Video card as the culprit I would suggest you simply turn it off which will more than likely solve your problem. You do not need to use the Sleep Mode. Turn your monitor off to save energy. To turn Sleep Mode off;
  1. Begin by first clicking on the Start Button.
  2. Then click on the Control Panel icon located in the right column of the Start Menu.
  3. Now click on the Power Options icon to display the Power Options Properties Window.
  4. If your Start Menu is set to the Classic View, then begin by clicking on the Start Button.
  5. Then click on Settings, then click on the Control Panel icon to open up the Control Panel.
  6. Now, click on the Hibernate tab located at the top of the power options screen.
  7. Then uncheck the Enable hibernation option with your mouse if it happens to be enabled.
  8. Now click on the OK button to save your changes and exit the Power Options windows.
  9. And then close the Control Panel to return back to your Window session.
  10. Your computer will no longer enter into a hibernation sleep state when you are away from it.

Check your backlight settings, Power Settings, etc.....

You may have Vista (vista has other power settings such as a custom sleep mode which can fail sometimes to work properly with some hardware/monitor configurations).
So Disable any unconventional Hibrid Hibernation options k!
