For problems like this i reccomend to all pc new-ers that use win of anykind with such problems, first use a free program iobit's advance system care 3. scan computer, then i think windows will run to 300% faster, expecially if you have your OS installed over 6 months and more. it cleans, checks, removes and repairs. you can also buy pro version but thats your thing.

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

My HPw1707 monitor keeps going to sleep and I have to turn off the computer to get the programs to open when I want to work on anything.


Are you saying that the monitor is going to sleep or the computer? If the computer goes to sleep I can understand not being able to get to your programs. This is a simple matter of turning off hybirnate in the power supply icon of your control panel. If the monitor is going to sleep there should be a menu with a timer for sleep time. Just change it to a much longer time or turn it off.

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!!!

Computer not sleeping in sleep mode.


One possibility is if you have an optical/laser mouse that is on a relective surface and the mouse light is reflecting and triggering the computer to think that there is activity.

More than likely, your network card is keeping your computer from staying in sleep mode as any internet data activity is taking the computer out of sleep mode making the computer think there is activity.

There is an option in the Network Adapter properties that says to "Allow this device to wake up your computer"

Go to Control Panel and click Classic View on the left hand side

Double Click the Network and Sharing Centre Icon.

On the left hand side of the window that opens, click Manage Network Connections.

Right Click on the connected Network Connection. It is probably the Local Area Connection. Right click on it and choose Properties

A new box will open up. Click the Configure button under the Connect Using: box

Click the last tab at the top that says Power Management.

Under the Power Management tab click the square box that is beside: Allow this Device to Wake the Computer to take the checkmark out of the box. Then Click OK at the botton and close all the windows.

Let the computer go into Sleep mode and see if the computer still comes out of sleep mode on its own.

Let me know if this worked for you,

Ry

Works when it wants to then turns whie with grey line in it


Hi

If only the monitor is going to sleep, then it could be a problem with the connection from the monitor to the computer or with the cable.

If the computer goes to sleep and if you are not able to wake it from sleep then check the sleep mode settings and also the power management settings for the keyboard and mouse.
You may also do a system restore if you are not able to wake the computer from sleep.
