Question about E-Machines E17T4 LCD Monitor

Standby Mode Does standby/Hibernate mode save electricity? My power button used to flash, which I imagine indicates standby mode. Is that correct? Now it does not flash. If it saves electricity in standby mode, how can I get my eMachine back in standby mode? Thanks!

Hi.i have a dell e521 with a e197 fp monitor. when i turn the system on the monitor stays in stand-by mode. so i have a black screen,is it broken?


not really.. theres a possibility that the monitor is just on standby mode. try to disconnect the power cable of the monitor, then hold the power button of the monitor to drain its flea power. put the power cable back then try it again.

if its going to do the same thing, check the connection of the monitor at the back of the computer. see if its seated properly.

try restarting the computer..

try draining the flea power on the computer as well, possible that the computer is in standby or hibernate mode..

The setup menu on your monitor needs to be changed. On most monitors there are buttons which you press in sequence, go through these buttons and you will find a monitor mode which allows it to stay on permanently.

My flatron 1920P monitor is in power saving mode. How do I get it out of power saving mode?


It may stuck in the standby mode because it is not seeing the signal feeding it or there is problem in the power supply, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Make sure that your computer isn't going into Standby or Hibernate mode. You can test this by briefly pressing the power button and wait to see if the screen comes back on.

How do i get out of hibernate mode and get into standby


To get the computer back up again and out of hibernation you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.


Also the following may be of interest.
You must be logged on as an administrator or member of either the Administrators or Power Users group in order to successfully complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, the forced network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure. In this case please consult your Network Administrator.
  1. Click Start, then Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box.
    If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start, and then click Shut Down then select Hibernate.
    If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional with Fast User Switching turned on, the Shut Down menu will present the options to Stand By, Turn Off, or Restart your computer. Hold down the Shift key, and the Stand By button will change to Hibernate.

Digital power saving mode


check your monitor power settings.

right click on your desk top then left click on 'properties' in the white box that appears.

this will bring up a 'display properties' box which should have a tab headed 'screen saver' amongst others.

select the screen saver tab.

in this tab there are 2 sections. one to select which screen saver you want to use (and what settings are applied to it), and another section which should be called 'monitor power'.

click the button here which says 'power...' to adjust your power settings.

in the next window there are 4 tabs. select the first tab (power schemes - which should be already selected by default) and you now have 4 options. leave the selected 'power scheme' in the top of the window as it is and just alter the settings for the selected power scheme.

your 4 options are: 'turn off monitor', 'turn off hard disks', 'system standby' and 'system hibernates'  i would recommend setting all of these to 'never', and don't forget to click the 'apply' button after you've done this.

i would also recommend disableing hibernation in the 'hibernate' tab (this is in the same window as the power schemes tab).

once you've adjusted your power settings, don't forget to activate one of your screen savers.  this is only important if you leave the monitor on for a long time with no changes taking place in terms of what is being displayed. if you leave a static image on for hours you will end up with permanent screen burn. (a ghost image that is always there - even when the monitor isn't switched on!).

i don't bother with screen savers personally as i find them annoying, and find it much easier to simply turn the monitor off whenever i'm not going to be using it for the next hour or more.

hope that solved your problem. apologies if it doesn't.

by the way, the tabs etc i described are what i have on my OS (windows XP pro) and may be named differently if you're using a different version of windows.  the 'power options' settings will still be accessible via 'screen saver' tab in desktop properties though.

good luck!
