Question about Computers & Internet

Laptop goes into permanent sleep mode, etc

Laptop screen goes blank - permanent sleep mode. Can't wake it up. CTRL, ALT, DEL does nothing. Touching mouse pad or any key does nothing. Can't switch off obviously so have to resort to holding down On/OFF button and it then shuts down. Sometimes then when I try to turn on again, all the lights come on but nothing happens. It will not boot up except for once in about every 10 tries! Then it runs great until left alone when the 'sleep' cycle starts again. Really frustration. It does not appear to be overheating. Any ideas?

If you can restart it and it starts up fine, then I would go into the power settings and disable sleep mode. Every computer is different on how to wake a sleeping computer, so you could read through your manuals and find out for yours, but I just disable sleep mode on all computers so i dont have to hassle with it.

by the next time if the screen goes blank, press alt+ctrl+del together and check are you able to see the task manager....
if you can see the task manager, then close the game from that window by selecting end task....
if you cant see the task manager, then press ctrl+alt+del together 2 times and check....
if nothing works, then try by checking with any HD monitors if available with you or with your friends...

Wont turn on think its in sleep mode. how do i get it out of sleep mode


1.You need to push the power button once. 2.You can also use Alt+Ctrl+Del to wake up the computer. 3.You can change the Sleep/Hibernate to 'Never' n this is how you do it:
Right click in the desktop area (not on an icon) and select Properties Click the tab labeled Screen Saver then click on the Power button Under Power Schemes tab change System Standby/Hibernate to Never then click on the OK button Click the OK button on the Display Properties windows for the changes to take effect. That will Do. If this also doesn't solve the problem...you need to call a service person.
