I am not sure if you're asking about how to change the settings to make a single tap on the touchpad function like double click. You can go to control panel>mice or touchpad.

If you're just asking how to do double click on the touchpad, by default, it's set to tapping the touchpad twice. You can change change the speed settings in control panel too.

Lenovo c540 wont start after sleepmode or beeing a couple of hours off. why?


Sleep and hibernation frequently asked questions
On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop. Check the documentation that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.


How can I prevent my computer from automatically sleeping or hibernating?

You can adjust how long your computer waits before sleeping or hibernating-or prevent it from turning itself off altogether. But be careful. On a battery powered laptop, inhibiting sleep or hibernation can result in data loss if the battery dies. Here's how to prevent your computer from entering a power-saving state:
  1. Open Power Options by clicking the Start button .jpg" alt="Picture of the Start button">, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.
  2. On the Select a power plan page, click Change plan settings next to the selected plan.
  3. On the Change settings for the plan page, click Change advanced power settings.
  4. On the Advanced settings tab, double-click Sleep, double-click Sleep after, and then do one of the following:
    • If you're using a laptop, click On battery or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click Never.
    • If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.
  5. Double-click Hibernate after, and then do one of the following:
    • If you're using a laptop, click On battery or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click Never.
    • If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.
  6. If you also want the display to stay turned on, double-click Display, double-click Turn off display after, and then do one of the following:
    • If you're using a laptop, click On battery or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click Never.
    • If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.
  7. Click OK, and then click Save changes.

I Hope that helps very old problem but still happens even with windows 8.1. Good Luck.

Num lock


If you use the number pad frequently during your daily computer usage, you may want to have the "Num Lock" key enabled when the computer starts up.
You can enable Num Lock automatically in two different ways: one involves modifying a value in the registry and the other requires you to create a small script in Notepad.
Activate Num Lock Through the Registry
Enter the registry and navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard\." Double-click on the value labeled "IntitialKeyboardIndicators," which has a value of 0,1 or 2.
Change the value to "2" to turn Num Lock on after logon, "0" to turn Num Lock off after logon and "1" to disable Num Lock.
Create a Num Lock Script
Configure a script that runs to automatically change the Num Lock state.
Depending on where you place the script, you can activate the script for a single user or all users on the computer. Open Notepad and paste the following code
"set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.SendKeys "{NUMLOCK}"
Save the file as "numlock.vbs," including the quotes to change the notepad file to a script.
Paste the file in the directory "Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" to enable Num Lock for all users by default.
For a single user, copy it to their startup folder instead of All Users.
Enter the BIOS
Enter your computer's BIOS before Windows boots up to change the integrated Num Lock settings.
Depending on your motherboard manufacturer, different key combinations allow you to access the BIOS.
Common keys include "F1," "F2," "Del," "ESC" or "F10."
Consult your computer's documentation for specifics.
Navigate through the basic or advanced options until you find a section dedicated to enable or disable Num Lock on boot.
Enable in Linux
Linux is an alternate operating system.
While the BIOS method may work for Linux, you can also change the process through the options if using KDE Linux.
Navigate to "Control Panel" and click "Peripherals." Select "Keyboard" and select the option "Turn on" under the heading labeled "NumLock on KDE Startup."

How do you remove that warning message


Windows Vista


In newer versions of Windows, User Account Control (UAC) is implemented to warn users when they are about to complete an action on the computer that could cause damage.


However, these warning messages can become bothersome. Disable UAC to prevent warning messages from being displayed constantly as you use your computer.


Click "Start," then click "Control Panel."


Double click "User Accounts."


Click "Turn User Account Control on or off."


Remove the check from the box, and click "OK." You may need to restart the computer to complete this change.


Windows 7


Click "Start," then click "Control Panel."


Find the search box at the top of the window and type "User Account Control" into it. This will result in a link labeled "Change User Account Control settings." Click the link.


Move the slider to the bottom of the window to disable UAC warning messages completely or to a position in the middle of the window to disable warnings in only certain situations.


Hope this helps

How do I increase the size of the text being displayed on my laptop monitor ?


Hello,
To increase/decrease the font size,
1. Right click on the desk top screen (or double click on control panel, then choose personalize icon)
2. Under "Task" double click " adjust font size (dpi)" then click "continue".
3. Click "larger dpi" or "custom dpi" box. Choosing custom setting should indicate 100%.

To increase font size, type a percent greater than 100 (ie. 105%) or to decrease size, use a percent less than 100 (ie. 95%).
4. Click "ok". You may receive a message to restart computer for change to take effect.
5. Restart computer. Repeat process until you are happy with the results.
