Are you using an optical mouse? If so, try turning it upside down before entering sleep mode. On some surfaces (with some mice only), the mouse picks up movement even if perfectly still.

My HP monitor keeps going to sleep,it reads (power button lockout) How do I fix this?


This is because the monitor's Power Button Lockout function is enabled. Press and hold the Power button for 10 seconds to unlock the Power button function. Your sleep problem should also be related to the lockout issue.

How does one make the screen brighter on a laptop computer


Normally there should be two keys to turn up and turn down the bightness on the top of the keyboard partnered with the F keysLook for a lightbulb symbol, one showing it getting brighter and one dimmer. First press the key a few times and if the screen gets dimmer or brighter you are good to go, but sometimes it might be the second function key, so you will have to look for the key on your keyboard to activate the second function, and normally that key is called the FUNC or FN key, and should have the same color and the second function options. So hit that key, by either pressing it once, or holding it in.

Sole treadmill won't go in to sleep mode


You need to go into the maintenance menu.

Take out the red safety stop key, hold down the "start", "stop" and "Enter" buttons, keep holding them down while putting the red key back in (a bit tricky), keep holding the keys down until you see "Maintenance menu" scrolling (this will happen as long as you didn't let go of the three keys).

Initially when you put the red key in it'll might show software version etc, after a few seconds it'll change to maintenance menu. Use the speed UP and Down buttons on the console or arm to scroll through menu until you reach "FUNCTIONS" press enter.

In the functions sub-menu, depending on what year model/software version it has, it should have a selection called "Sleep Timer" if so set it using up down keys to "ON". If your model doesn't have "sleep timer" listed (i.e. a newer model) it's now just called "DISPLAY" and in that case set it to "OFF". That should fix it.

Press Stop, to go back. If you want you can disable the key tone/training beeping as well in the "functions" sub-menu of the "maintenance menu".

To exit press stop repeatedly until you're back to the normal display.

How can I unlock the blue function keys on my HP Pavilion dv2000?


If you press the function key (Fn) it should unlock the function keys with normal use. However, sometimes when an external device is removed from the computer while it's in use (such as an external keyboard) the function keys will turn on and refuse to turn off. When this occurs you can typically reboot the computer and the problem will fix itself.

How do you reboot a apple laptop, my laptop is messed up!?


When you mentioned in the issue detail, that your Macbook portable "is messed up", without more details, I honestly cannot tell to what extent you are having issues with your Macbook.

So to better assist you, I am going to provide a few troubleshooting steps to see if this can help with your Macbook's rebooting up to the desktop normally.

Procedure #1
Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:
• First, hold in your power button for approximately 10 seconds to do a hard shutdown.

• Once your Mac is shutdown, you will need to perform what is called a PRAM reset (Parameter RAM)
This should help with the freezing issue:

• Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously .

• Turn on the computer.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the third time.

• Release the keys and allow the Macbook to start up.

If the PRAM reset still does not help, try this second procedure below.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Procedure #2

-SMC RESET-
The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is usually on the logic board of your Mac portable.

It is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

Shut down the computer.
• Disconnect the MagSafe power adapter from the computer, if it's connected.
• Remove the battery.
• Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
• Release the power button.
• Reconnect the battery and MagSafe power adapter.
• Press the power button to turn on the computer.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Give this a try and you should be able to boot up normally. If not, let me know.

Thanks!

Regards,

I am running a model 1045 on VISTA. The sleep key puts my computer to sleep but what key wakes it up?


Hi there,

Normally when you put your computer to sleep with your keyboard you only have to press a key on the keyboard to wake the computer again.
I normally use my spacebar to wake my pc but any key should work fine.

Kind regards!!!

Screen goes black on my hp pavilion dv4000 notebook


Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video data will switch to the monitor automatically, check if the monitor dislays a normal image and see if the image stays on the monitor.
Also press and hold the Fn key and press the F4 key, these keys toggle the video output between the LCD screen and the video port.
Test to see if this functions correctly.
Get back to me with the results of the tests.

NC10: Can't type without holding function key down


I set up my girlfriends this morning, to turn off Num Lock, you need to have the machine on and select Fn + F11.

That'll turn it off and you'll have the bliss of typing normally again!!
