When I leave my computer for more than 5 minutes, the monitor turns black and I am unable to access my data. I have to use the power button to shut down and start all over again.


Just change the power settings to never turn your monitor off or never put your pc to sleep when idle.

For Windows 7:

Click on Start.

Go to Control Panel.

Go to Power Options.

Click on Change Plan Settings.

Make sure both Turn off the display and Put the computer to sleep is set to never.

Click on Save Changes.

Restart your pc.


The steps should be similar for Windows Vista and Windows XP.

For Windows 7:

1)Left Click the battery icon on the bottom left of the desktop.
2)Click "More Power Options"
3)Click "Change Plan Settings" of the one that you are using
4)Change the time for "Dim the display"

It must be similar with any Operating System you are using. Just find the power options which is usually in the Control Panel.

If i leave computer on without anyone using it . computer goes to black/dark screen , can't perform any functions. also computer crashes at times during use.


You need to check your power settings. It is being set to go to turn of the drivers after a certain amount of time.

Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options Then change the power options so it does not shut off the hard drive.

Monitor comes on for 2 seconds and then goes all black. What type of problem do I have?


May be you have set "Changed" the setting of your monitor power. If it's set then try this step and see whether it's helpful to you or not. In Windows 7, Vista, or XP, to change the power management settings. To change power management settings in Windows 7, Vista, or XP: Note: If this doesn't match what you see, refer to About navigation settings in Windows.
For Windows 7 and Vista From the Start menu, select Control Panel. Then choose Power Options.
From the list in the left panel, click Choose when to turn off the display or Change when the computer sleeps.
Set your options. For each action, "Turn off the display:" and "Put the computer to sleep:", you can select times ranging from 1 minute to Never.
Click Save changes.
Windows XP From the Start menu, select Settings, and then Control Panel. Double-click Power Management or Power Options. From the "Turn off monitor:" drop-down menu, select a time from After 1 min to Never. Click Apply, and then click OK.

All the Best!

PC help. My pc will no longer go into 'standby' mode. I have reset the time in 'power options' but no luck.


if it's a desktop i would recommend not setting it to go to stand by but setting your monitor to go to standby your system can run and run an run without hurting it or using up much electricity just go to your power options and select turn off monitor after however many minutes u want usually run it at about 30 min

The monitor is black


i've had this problem from even trying to restart my pc at times. it happens usually when you've changed or added something that the pc wasn't prepared to do. if you've installed a new card. disconect it and try again. installing the drivers and software for it first.

My computer sleeps and I cant wake except by turning it off and restarting it can you help me?


Is the monitor and the pc sleeping? You can change the settings in Control Panel under Power Options. Since I keep my pc on all of the time, I have my power settings as follows: go to Control Panel, then Performance and Maintenance, then Power Options. I have the option checked for 'always on' and for the monitor and HD, I have all of the options set to NEVER. I also don't have the box checked for Hibernation.

Monitor goes into Power Save mode unexpectedly


What are your settings in Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Power Options? Do you leave your pc on all of the time or do you turn it on just when you need it? If you are getting lines on your monitor, it is possible that it's starting to give out on you. Please don't try to fix a monitor unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing. It can be very dangerous.
