It is probably a setting in windows that is your problem.
Try This, Right click your screen and select properties,select the screen saver tab, then select the power button. If you don't want power saving highlight never for the monitor and hard disk. Then go to the hibernation tab and disable hibernation.click ok to all screens to back out. Hope this helps.

HP 8200 Keeps coming on after I turn it off. It seems like it is on a schedule. Sometime ten minuites after I turn it off, it come back on.


Check "wake on..." settings in the system BIOS, likely that "wake on lan" or
"wake on ring" is enabled.

So disable it and your problem is gone !

When i shut down my pc it shuts down, but the psu stays on, i can turn it off by the button but not by the desktop, any ideas???


Hi, "Sleep" mode or "standby" mode allows your computer to go on standby or sleep until you "wake" it up again. This is a power saving feature which is usually used for a few hours. You can change it to completely shut down everything (including power supply) in power supply options in your control panel. Check out your help section for sleep or standby options. Hank

It is possible that you have a CA Voltage problem... so, do you have overvoltage protection at power supply?. though you should remove jumper from "boot block" pins (or similar) in the Motherboard (HP computers usually have it). This surely willl help you.

XP Computer Standby Feature Question


Have you disabled "Wake on LAN" in the power settings? There are also other settings in Power management that could affect this.
There should also be general settings for power savings such as "none" "medium" and "maximum power savings" With a little explanation of each.

Stand by mode


Check the display cables , and if you have one test a different monitor on your computer.

If this is not a sceen problem, then it is an internal fault possibly the motherboard.

Try first leaving the PC power cord unplugged for ten, fifteen minutes and check if PC restarts afterwards.

When I put the computer to "sleep" it decides to come back on by itself. This happens frequently, but not all the time. What could be causing it to do this? Also, if I shut the computer down,...


Sleep on Vista is a combination of Standby and Hibernate. First it will go into Standby and then later if a laptop it will go into Hibernate. Any movement of mouse or keyboard may cause it to wake up.
Some computers will wake on Lan. If you have ethernet connected this may be the cause. You can turn this off by using Device Manager - Hardware - Select ethernet adapter - driver - Advanced - look for Wake on Lan and Pattern Matching and disable this.
ALso check your BIOS settings and disable all Wake on XXX settings.

How can I get my computer to remain in standby mode overnight?


You are correct as regards ccApp, this is the norton antivirus apllication running in the background and stopping the process will stop the constant monitoring. Just double check the power options are as they should be in control panel and if you want you can turn off norton for a set period of time by right clicking the icon in the taskbar and dissable it, the options for a set time should then appear. You can also check in the bios F2 or Del on start up and in the advanced cmos settings look for the line 'Wake On Lan' and maybe dissable it if you are on a wired network, save settings and exit. Remember also if you have an optical mouse they are more sensitive to noise or vibration or movement and will wake your pc.
