For Windows XP, go to "Control Panel" and select "Power Options". There you can adjust power schemes, hibernation, advanced settings, etc...

Unable to turn off music in sleep mode


Hi, There are different levels of sleep a computer goes through as time passes and it can take a while for your computer to fully awaken. What happens is the computer closes programs not necessary in sleep mode. Some of the small programs used to carry instructions called batch files are in hibernation and especially in older computers with slower processors and very little ram can be a problem. You can set your computer to never sleep by going to the control panel and opening Power Settings. Good Luck

Sleep/hibernate mode


Hi, If the computer seem to wake from sleep mode for no reason? Some device settings can cause the computer to return from a power savings state when not expected. If the computer is using an optical mouse, changes in light can cause the computer to wake. Network activity can cause the network hardware to wake the computer, especially when the network is always on (like cable and DSL connections). High Definition Audio audio may also cause the computer to wake from sleep mode. Use the following steps to prevent the these hardware devices from waking the computer:
  1. Click Start c00847244.gif , and then right-click Computer .
  2. Select Properties , and then click Device Manager in the left panel of the window.
  3. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to the device that needs to be adjusted. If you are using an optical mouse, select Mice and other pointing devices . If the computer is using an "always-on" connection, click Network Adapters . To check the high definition audio, click Sound, video, and game controllers .
  4. Double-click the name of the device to open a Properties window.
  5. Click the Power Management tab, and remove the selection from Allow this device to wake the computer . Figure 6: Power management tab for a mouse c00851648.gif NOTE: If you prevent the mouse from being able to wake the comuter, wake the computer using the Sleep button on the keyboard or from the power button on the front of the computer.
  6. Click OK , close the windows that are open, and then restart the computer.
  7. Click Start c00847244.gif , and select the Sleep/Standby button to see the problem still exists: If the problem still exists, go to the next Step.
  8. Disconnect all non-essential connected devices (printers, scanners, USB drives).
  9. Restart the computer with only the original mouse, monitor, and keyboard connected. If this resolves the sleep/standby problem, one of the connected devices was causing the problem. Replace one device and test to see if the problem occurs again. Continue adding devices and testing until the you find the device that is causing the problem.
If you have already tried all the above steps, you can try the steps below: Many software components start up automatically and run without being seen. Most of these programs are not necessary to the work performed on a computer, but can interfere with sleep/standby mode. For troubleshooting purposes use the following steps to prevent programs from starting when Windows is first opened.
  1. Click Start c00847244.gif , and then type msconfig into the Search field and then press the Enter key.
  2. The System Configuration Utility appears. Click the General tab, select Selective startup , and then and remove the check from Load startup items . c00847247.png
  3. Click OK to accept the changes and restart the computer.
  4. After completing these steps, Windows opens using Selective Startup. A small reminder may appear when Windows restarts. Select Don't show this dialog again and click OK to prevent the reminder from re-appearing every time the computer is restarted.
NOTE: To undo the changes made in this process repeat the steps above and replace the checkmark next to Load startup items .
  • If disabling Load startup items did not resolve the suspend problem, go to the next step.
  • If disabling Load startup items resolved the suspend problem, enable one startup item and test to see if the problem occurs again. Continue enabling startup items, until you find the software task that is causing the problem. Remove or update problem software.
If the problem still exists, go to the next Step. Upgrading the BIOS and keyboard software If the sleep button on the keyboard still does not work, go to the HP Software and Driver Download page , enter your computer model number into the field provided, and install any keyboard and BIOS updates for Windows Vista. Should you require any further assistance regarding this issue or any other computer related issue in future please feel free to contact get back to us, we will be more than glad to assist you.

Cant get power saving mode off


Step 1:
Sleep Mode b> Sleep mode is primarily used with home computers (desktop computers). Sleep mode is designed to save the current work, programs, and settings of your computer using your computers memory, while using very little power. b> Hibernate Mode b> Hibernate mode is primarily used with laptop's. Hibernate mode is designed to save your computers current state on to the hard disk, then turn off your computer to stop using power completely. This mode is usually used when you do not plan on using your laptop for an extended amount of time. Benefits b> Using Hibernate mode is more power-efficient, but files may become fragmented over time by using this mode frequently. Sleep mode does consume more power, but the advantage that Sleep mode has over Hibernate is that it does not take as long to resume your computers former state when you are ready to continue using it.

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.

Windows sleep mode problems


Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work. This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation. Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money! Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow. The Shut Down menu appears. Point at "Sleep" and click on this option. Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode. Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse. There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on. All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode. 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

I am unable to access the internet from sleep mode Can only get on internet from shut down mode


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

important notes
1. contact expert technical assistance

When my computer goes into sleep mode it freezes after 5 seconds


There are a lot of systems out there having trouble with the sleep and hibernation programs in windows. The first thing I would do if I wanted to keep the sleep and hibernation programs in place would be to update the BIOS file on the system. I for one am a believe the computer in turning off the sleep and hibernation. They have caused more corrupt windows installations than I care to remember or work on again. If you want to try turning these off for a while and see how the computer reacts, go to the control panel > power option > scroll through the settings and change the way the computer sleeps and hibernates. Also change the setting for what happens when the lid is closed. Change it to "Do Nothing" this will correct a case of the computer not waking up from somply closing the lid. The lcd will automatically turn off when you close the lid and turn back on when you open it...you don't need the computer going to sleep simply because you close the lid for second.

My desktop pc has gone into power save mode


Turn the whole pc off then back on. If the LCD stays in power save then I would try a diffrent monitor on the PC. If that fixes it the the monitor is probably stuck in power save. Check www.lcdrpair.us for parts and instructions.
