Sounds like it is locked up. There should be a power switch on the back. Switch it off, leave it off for a few minutes, then turn the back power switch on again and push the front power switch. If no rear switch, pull the plug. Windows doesn't like hard power downs, but if your system won't recognize the keystrokes or mouse movement, tere is nothing else you can do.

SOURCE: stuck in sleep mode

Press the power button on the Computer it should come out of sleep mode then if it doesn't hold the power button of the computer down until the system turns completely off.

Then turn back on the computer should now boot fine. Once in windows goto control panel and select power option then adjust the setting.


Hope this helps you
Cheers J

SOURCE: Computer sleep mode

Power utilities (Sleep, Hibernate, Standby...) are invented most for laptops, to save battery power.

I dont't remeber anybody using power-savings on the Desktop PC.
You may use a (blank) screen saver, if you make pauses for about 30 minutes, but if you don't use your computer for more than that, I'd suggest to turn it off.

You save energy and avoid risks of loosing data if power gows down.
Of course you loose some time for next boot, but it is more safe.

Also, I want to mention that I've met abt 30 HDDs that never woke up from Standby.

Regards.

SOURCE: Computer not sleeping in sleep mode.

One possibility is if you have an optical/laser mouse that is on a relective surface and the mouse light is reflecting and triggering the computer to think that there is activity.

More than likely, your network card is keeping your computer from staying in sleep mode as any internet data activity is taking the computer out of sleep mode making the computer think there is activity.

There is an option in the Network Adapter properties that says to "Allow this device to wake up your computer"

Go to Control Panel and click Classic View on the left hand side

Double Click the Network and Sharing Centre Icon.

On the left hand side of the window that opens, click Manage Network Connections.

Right Click on the connected Network Connection. It is probably the Local Area Connection. Right click on it and choose Properties

A new box will open up. Click the Configure button under the Connect Using: box

Click the last tab at the top that says Power Management.

Under the Power Management tab click the square box that is beside: Allow this Device to Wake the Computer to take the checkmark out of the box. Then Click OK at the botton and close all the windows.

Let the computer go into Sleep mode and see if the computer still comes out of sleep mode on its own.

Let me know if this worked for you,

Ry

How to open hp laptop in sleep mode


This is a common problem on HP computers but also has many causes. If your laptop is not coming back on after being put into sleep mode, it could be a software issue among a few other things. If your computer has a hibernation mode I would suggest using it to get around the sleep mode issue. This mode will save everything the way it is and shut down completely. When you restart the computer it will open up just as you left it. Just like sleep mode except with a restart. This does not solve the sleep mode problem but easily provides a power saving alternative to it.

My computer hp s3700f keeps going black or sleep. Mode


Hello

You can prevent the computer from going into sleep or hibernation mode by going to the CONTROL PANEL - POWER SETTINGS.

Once here, change the settings to High Performance.

You can also go into advanced properties and manually change all of the settings - including when the hard drives go to sleep (I set this to NEVER), when the monitor will go to sleep (again, I set to never).

The computer starts and the monitor instantly goes into sleep mode and cannot be restored. It first shows that there is no inputs and goes into sleep mode


It is possible that your video card is Gone!!! Try to connect the monitor to another computer (to a laptop for example) to verify if it works properly.

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.
