Click on start and Control Panel then Power Management. Some computers have an option to do "nothing" when sleep button is pushed.

There is a long silver button with a black moon on the upper left of my keyboard. When I accidentally hit it, the screen goes black. What is it.....and how do you get your screen back?


Hi,
Depending on how your keyboard is configured, that key is set to do one of two things:
  1. Puts your computer to sleep. (A low power state where almost everything is shut off, including the monitor). You can resume from sleep by hitting any key on the keyboard, hitting the power button on your computer, or clicking the mouse.
  2. Puts your computer into hibernation. (An even lower power state where everything is actually shut off, but a copy of everything open is saved to the hard drive to be opened during start up. It basically allows you to turn off the computer, but be able to turn it back on with program exactly how you left it). You can resume from hibernation only by hitting the power button on your computer.
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! You can leave a testimonial or contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

The sleep button was hit by mistake resulting in the monitor going black. What do I do?


Just press the power button to wake it up again.

Then come back here and hit the "thumbs-up" button for me. :)

What is 1/4 moon symbol on top left of my compaq keyboard ? when i press it seems to put my computer into sleep mode . how do I get my computer started again ?


You are correct. The moon is sleep mode. Closing and opening the lid will often take it out of sleep mode. You might have to "unlock" the keyboard as well by entering a password (just hit return if you haven't entered a password.)

Under power options, you can select what the computer does in sleep mode.

Sleep mode


usually, to get a PC out of sleep mode, you either press the ESC key, press the power button a bit quickly, or press the sleep key agian. It really depends on the system. Try any of those to see if it helps.

The button puts your computer in to standby. If you do not want this to happen, you can turn that feature off from within your Keyboard Software.
