My Vaio doesn't go to sleep/hibernate when closing the lid


Maybe the little sensor or pin that sticks up and is pushed in when you close the lid is broken and the software doesn't realize the lid has been closed.

While at home I plug a wide screen monitor into my Dell studio 1737 Laptop. As long as I keep my lid open the icons and print on my monitor are the right size. When I close the lid, icons and prints get...


You appear to be cloning your internal LCD and as long as it is active, the resolution setting for the LCD is also controlling the resolution of the external monitor. When the LCD is closed, then the default resolution of the external monitor is being used by Windows 7 (It apparently has autodetected the size of the monitor and knows the Highest optimal resolution it will display.) The higher the resolution, then smaller the icons.
To resolve, go to display properties and check the resolution of the internal LCD and then set the External display to the lower resolution.
You should be able to wake the system with an external keyboard, by pressing the spacebar, if the system is sleeping

Hi i have an apple display connected to my macbook


Unplug the display from your macbook, and restart your macbook, when it's fully restarted and you are logged in, plug the display back in, then check to see if it is detected. Macbooks don't like to be put to sleep (shutting the lid) with a display connected, this causes issues with display detection. So always unplug your display and wait about 5 seconds before closing the lid on your macbook, and when you open the lid, wait another 5 seconds before plugging in your display. The only time it is acceptable to leave the display plugged in when you close the lid is when you plan to use the macbook in clamshell mode, this is done by plugging in and configuring your display, shutting the lid, and then "waking" the macbook from sleep mode with an external mouse (wired or wireless will work). That will start the macbook using the external display as the main display, without even turning on the macbook built-in display. Never connect or disconnect an external display when your macbook is off or in sleep mode. Have a nice day.

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.
