Re: sleep mode ineffectual
Are you saying that your computer keeps going into standby? You can change your power management settings to whatever you like in your control panel power options. Tell it not to go into standby, hibernate, or anything you don't want.

Step 1: Sleep Mode b> Sleep mode is primarily used with home computers (desktop computers). Sleep mode is designed to save the current work, programs, and settings of your computer using your computers memory, while using very little power. b> Hibernate Mode b> Hibernate mode is primarily used with laptop's. Hibernate mode is designed to save your computers current state on to the hard disk, then turn off your computer to stop using power completely. This mode is usually used when you do not plan on using your laptop for an extended amount of time. Benefits b> Using Hibernate mode is more power-efficient, but files may become fragmented over time by using this mode frequently. Sleep mode does consume more power, but the advantage that Sleep mode has over Hibernate is that it does not take as long to resume your computers former state when you are ready to continue using it.
When you say sleep mode, you mean the LED behind your power button is on? There may be some other way to tell it's asleep, but, saying the obvious, did you push the power button? This usually takes us out of sleep and brings us to login. If you have done this, you may have something serious. Take the skin off the PC and lay it down so you can see the motherboard. with all connections on, turn on the unit and see if any fans work. Write me back after this has been done and we'll continue.
ok got t o your power mangement setting and extent the time of sleep and do change the setting of your mouse power management in Device manager. wake system when in sleep mode something like this just check it and enjoy.
Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.
As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.
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.
What I believe is your problem is that your computer is going into a power saving mode called a "Sleep state".
If this is the case you should be able to "wake it up" by pressing the sleep button.
HP/Compaq usually put one on their keyboards. It has an icon on it the shape of a crescent moon and is usually labeled "Sleep" Press that to give your pc a wakeup call when it is asleep. Or if you want to put your PC to sleep to save power when it is awake.
If your like me you probably don't care for this feature. Fortunately it CAN be disabled easily. open the page you would use to change your screensaver. At the bottom of it is a smaller page with an "Energy star" logo in it.
This is your power settings control panel. From here you can adjust the settings so the "Sleep state" takes longer to kick in or disable it altogether.
You should also be able to find power settings in the control panel (But the path is different depending on which version of Windows you have" but it is always at the bottom of the screensaver panel.
