If it's left on for a period of time, specified by the power settings, it will dim the display, Hibernate, Sleep, etc. In the Control Panel, Power settings, Advanced Power setting , Change to High Preformance, adjust Hibernate and Sleep to Never, adjust advanced power setting to your specs. Shut down and unplug laptop , remove battery, when not in use, if you use on AC most of the time remove battery.
I find sleep mode nothing but trouble, eventually corrupts window files over extended use, go into power options, go to stand by and select never and click apply, next go to hibernate "top right" and click, make sure the check box is clear, if not! remove check and click apply and restart your laptop.
adjust time for monitor time to sleep you can adjust 5 minutes to never the option available
same can be done for hard disk. This is necessary as even monitor is active and when hard disk goes to sleep you may end up in same situation
Alternatively you can activate screen saver by
right click on desktop, settings screen saver choose screen saver set time to activate screen saver.
Three possible causes of sleep mode. first, an extensive screensaver with password lock prevents display. A condition that is observable as a blankscreen also known as sleep mode. Second, a computer power saver settings that shutsdown during idleness. Third, An improper shut down of the computer would have caused a sleep mode to save the system data files.
Restoring the computer to regular functionalioty
First solving predictable sleep mode settings
1. A movement of mouse pointer across the screen should reestablish unprotected password modes
a. password protected sleep mode would display an promp message requiring key code soon after the mouse pointer has changed direction
sloving unpredictable sleep mode settings
1.A computer power saver, screen saver, or splash screen displays prevnting programs acess would require manually powering off the computer system.
a. A manual power back on of the system should restore to program functionality mode
1. contact expert technical assistance
go into the power settings. The power saver can dim almost instantly and also shut down fairly fast if the settings aren't correct. If vista start type in power and click power options. If xp go to control panel and choose maintenance and then power settings.
If the screen is breaking up into multiple screens, the video resolution isn't set correctly. Change the video properties back to the native resolution.
Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen. Click on Properties at the bottom. Now click on the Settings tab. The Screen Resolution slider should be all the way to the right, close to -> More. The Colors should be set to the highest setting.
When you close the lid, you may have your laptop set to Sleep Mode, check that. You may also have your screen saver set to Blank, and no screen saver has been chosen.
(1.Screen Saver: Right-click on empty area of desktop>Properties>Screen Saver.
2.Sleep Mode: Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>Power Options>Power Buttons>When I press the sleep button on my computer>Then choose what you want it to do)
If none of this helps, I suggest you have a problem that HP needs to repair. Since you bought this dv9700t last July, would I be correct in assuming it's still under warranty?
THEN SCREEN SAVER
You will find your settings in there
and will be able to set your screen saver then if you click settings at the top then power you'll be able to set when your hard drive and monitor shut off if you need more info just let me know
To remove the sleep mode: right click the desktop and select Personalize, Click screen saver, at the bottom of that window you'll see "Change Power Settings" Click on that. Next to the left side of the window click on "Change when the computer goes to sleep and change the setting to "Never".. As far as why its doing it is unclear without hands on work, but you should have warranty for it. Tell them to fix it or try a differ brand of PC.
