How to prevent Bose Companion III speakers from turning off when computer sleeps?

I want to receive Skype calls overnight, but my Bose speakers go into sleep mode when the computer does. But they don't wake up unless I manually hit a key on keyboard.

SOURCE: bose companion speaker stopped working!?

What happened to you is probably mere coincidence with your cousin's use of the headphones and this is throwing you off. I own the Bose Companions also and they stopped working as well. However, I traced the problem to the "wall wart" power supply. Not sure why but Bose is now using an interchangable plug on them. If you look at the power supply you will see a "PUSH" button. If you depress it the plug can slide out. When it is slid back in and locked in place the connection between the plug plate and the power supply is not a good one. Try fiddling with it. But even if the connection is not the culprit, something in the power supply is. I swapped another power supply with the same connector and spec's ( amps must be the same ) from another item and the speakers worked perfectly.

SOURCE: Bose COMPANION 2 Speaker case disassembly?

yes..the only solution is to pop the front panel with screwdriver...to do this more efficiently (without breaking the front panel) ...first insert the thin screwdriver in the gap in front lanel on side wall...and rotate the screw driver 90 degree..this will pop that side....repeat it on other sides too...i did it last night only.....
my problem was that when i dropped the speaker....its magnet fell down...and its no longer working...i am trying to find another broken bose speaker to replace mine...from e bay,,but no luck till now :(

SOURCE: Bose Companion II Computer Speaker: The AC power adapter burnt

My puppy chewed through the cord for my a/c adapter, I just took the speakers into Circuit City, and they found me a workable replacement (the replacement isn't BOSE, but it works just fine).  Hope that helps!

Make sure that the power is plugged into both the wall or strip and the back of the speaker.

SOURCE: Samsung TV and Bose Campanion 3 speakers

Are these PC speakers? OF so you need a stereo RCA to min-jack cable, assuming the TV has a set of RCA audio outputs.

My Bose Companion III Computer Speakers have stopped working.All connections are fine but no sound is produced


This may sound obvious and you might have checked this already, but check all of your mute keys. If the speaker's volume control is down, that's one. If there's one on your keyboard you could accidentally hit, that's one. If the sound properties on your computer insist sound is coming out, try a different set of speakers, or try the speakers on a different device like an iPod. Get back to us if you still have problems. Hope this helps =]

Bose Companion 3 Series II not working (Mac)


The speakers seem to be muted by default - you'll see that the LED is yellow/amber. Tap the control pod - the LED will turn green and speakers will work. I felt like such an idiot after I spent almost an hour trying to figure this out. (This feature should be more prominent in the manual.)

Left speaker sometines has no sound? Please help


I bought a set of Bose companion 3 speakers and the darn RCA jacks are cheap and wiggling loose. The cost to send back and repair out of warranty is about $125!! BOSE companion speakers may sound good, but for my money, I'd rather go with more reliable computer speaker systems like Creative or Logitech. BOSE IS WAY TO OVER-RATED, but HEY....they suckered ME out of $275!!!
