Why my lenovo b450 laptop shutdown when in sleep modeif I'm not using it for about 10 minutes?

hi! just a tip! you could actually adjust the settings on that so that it wouldnt sleep after 10 minutes. you could adjust the settings of it on the lenovo energy management or on the power management. try to adjust the hibernation on it and the sleeping time as well. hope this helps! goodluck!

go to the power management settings in Windows. Open control panel, then go to power options, then look for power schemes. From the drop down, select your preferred option.

My laptop keeps going to sleep

Absent any specific information on your model, right click on the Desktop, and go to Properties, then to Screen Saver, and click on the Power button, and modify the Power Schemes to suit your requirements. Also click on the Hibernate tab, and optionally, you can turn Hibernate off.

Windows HP AMD Vista PC won't awaken from sleep/hibernate - sometimes

To the original poster: There's a patch from HP related to this. Visit, and review the support download and drivers.

Below is the solution if you can't find the patch from HP, or if you're one of the countless people having this problem on another brand computer (usually an Acer or Toshiba with Vista and AMD chips).

The problem is actually related to the screen-saver, not to sleep/suspend/hibernate, although since they tend to happen in similar time frames and similar ways, it's hard to pinpoint. To resolve...

1. Set your computer power-scheme to "max performance" or "high performance".

1a. Alternatively, go to Power Settings, then click on Change Plan Settings, then click on Change Advanced Power Settings, Scroll down to Processor Power Management, and set Minimum Processor State to 100 percent for both plugged in and battery.

(For 1 and 1a, I realize some people don't like that the "solution" is actually a "work-around", but at this point in time, nobody from either Microsoft or AMD has fully "fixed" the problem, so to use your computer, you're stuck with a lowly "avoid the problem" workaround.)

2. You have AMD chips in your computer, so chances are, you have ATI powered video. Go to Catalyst Control Center, and turn off "PowerPlay".

3. Also for your power settings, set your "Turn off monitor" setting to a suitable value, 5 to 20 minutes (whatever your like), AND TURN OFF THE SCREENSAVER ENTIRELY. The "turn off monitor" will do basically the same things that the screen saver would do, and avoids the problem that Vista/AMD computers sometimes have.

If you're brave, you can skep step 3, but I recommend doing all 3 of the steps.

My asus a639 shuts down within 3 minutes when unused and the only way to start it up is by pressing the reset button. The control buttons on the base of the machine also don't work at all.?? Any help...

Check the power settings - Start>Control Panel>Power Options Properties>Power Schemes - make sure Turn off hard disks and System standby show Never. Go to the Hibernate tab and uncheck the Enable hibernation box.

That's a start...

My pc turn off after e few minutes

It sounds like you have "Hibernation" mode activiate. Try these steps to re-configure Hibernation....
It can be configured to kick in automatically via the Power Options Properties screen. In the screen capture below I've selected the Portable/Laptop power scheme that includes a setting to put the system into hibernation mode after 3 hours of system inactivity.
sp32-20040707-141822.gif The Advanced Tab in Power Options Properties gives you the option of setting Power buttons to invoke hibernation. Many keyboards contain a 'Sleep' key that is very convenient to use with hibernation as illustrated in the screen capture below.
You can select "NEVER" in the pull down menu....

Let me know if this helps!
