PC stays in Sleep Mode and Keyboard and Mouse doesn't work

Well the title pretty much sells the deal on what my problem is. Two days ago I put my PC on sleep basicly and when I wanted to get back at it, it wouldnt do anything... I closed my PC by doing a reset, and basicly now my monitor won't turn on just the light flashs, my keyboard and mouse start up when I press on the ON button but after that there is nothing that's happening.

Help :( ???

Well that's kind of a loaded question.
There is several things that can cause this to happen.
1. The CPU died because the cpu fan just died and burnt it out.
2. The Ram is bad which I doubt.
3. Somthing happend and burnt out the motherboard sometimes we get insects that climb inside our computer and go onto things and alot of stuff in the computer that can be grounded by a bug or whatever and burn out our computer I've had it happen before.
The monitor is fine it's just blinking because it's not getting a signal from the P.C.
You can try to unplug the PC and plug it back in and try again or even check in the back on the power supply there is a I/O switch make sure it's on.

I put my Dell Dimension 9200 XPS 410 into sleep mode after connecting a wireless keyboard and mouse and the only way to wake it is to hold the power button in until it shuts off and then switch the power...


I would say it is in the Hibernation Mode To get it out of this mode you need to go to your Control Panel, open "POWER OPTION'S" and deselect the Hibernation mode then reboot.

Spacebar on keyboard makes my computer go to sleep mode


Sounds like your keyboard is sending the wrong signal (the one telling your PC to enter sleep mode) to your motherboard when you press space key, which (if true) would indicate it's faulty. It could also be you've contracted a virus and is playing a particularly nasty practical joke on you (let's hope that's all it does). Try connecting another keyboard to your PC and see if that helps. If it doesn't, then you'll need to clean your computer of any viruses. Try also disconnecting your mouse and see if that changes anything. If your keyboard comes with a shortcut utility software for it, run it and check there's no shortcut set on your keyboard's space bar. You've additionally specified you're not using wireless keyboard, but could you also please write what OS you're on?

My monitor will not stay on, it goes on sleep mode


Hi,
Your problem may be due to the sleep button in your keyboard may got struct into when you cleaned your keyboard.
Try to resolve the struct in the keys, if any.
Restart your system and if still your problem persists, then remove your keyboard and restart your computer and try with some other keyboard if possible. Once if you find out that the problem is with your keyboard, then replace the keyboard / service the existing one.'

I hope this is helpful to you. Please provide your ratings.
Thanks

How do I wake up the monitor when it goes to sleep when not used for a short time.


slapping it around usually works. "just a joke!"

tapping a few keys on your keyboard and moving the mouse will usually wake the monitor from sleep mode.

Computer will not stay in sleep mode. It reboots in about 10 seco


The PC comes back out of the sleep mode by input from the keyboard, mouse, or if it's configured in the BIOS, by the network card. If you are connected to other PC's, the network card might constantly be passing info back and forth throughout the network and then it won't remain in the sleep mode. First thing I'd do is check if there is a setting in the BIOS which makes the PC come out of sleep mode by the network card.

The mouse and keyboard can also be pretty hyper. You can sometimes just sit in front of your PC and blow air onto your mouse or keyboard and the PC reacts. Therefore, if you have your PC in a room with a slight draft, it might help to keep the doors & windows closed. Any small vibration may do the job, so make sure the table isn't on top of something that vibrates, even if ever so slightly.

Cannot get me monitor out of sleep mode, please help?


Hi

Pls check the power management properties in device manager to check if the option to wake the computer from sleep for the keyboard and mouse are enabled.
You may also try to change the power plan or create a new power plan and check if you are able to wake the computer from sleep.
If this problem started a few days back, then you may try to do a system restore.
