Question about Compaq Presario SR1103WM-B (PC183B#ABA) PC Desktop

How can I get my computer to remain in standby mode overnight?

I put my computer into standby mode at the end of the day to help save power (and to keep my room quieter), and most of the time, it "wakes up" soon after I do this. I haven't touched a thing on the computer or connected to it, but it comes back to full power. I then usually decide to shut it down completely, and a ccApp program has an error in shutting down. I'm pretty sure that this program running is the cause for the "waking up", but I've looked it up and it appears that it is essential to the Symantec virus protection system on my computer. The only thing I don't like about this program is the interruption in standby mode on my computer. Is there a way that I can get around this, or perhaps to change the ccApp program? Any help would be appreciated.

Check the Ethernet Driver Advanced/Properties tab in Device Manager. Look at the Magic Packet setting. If set to Magic Packet + Pattern matching (or says 'both') then set it to disable and see if that fixes it.
Something on your network may be generating packets and the 'pattern matching' option is known to not be initailised properly and so is triggered by random packets.

Re: how can I get my computer to remain in standby mode...

You are correct as regards ccApp, this is the norton antivirus apllication running in the background and stopping the process will stop the constant monitoring. Just double check the power options are as they should be in control panel and if you want you can turn off norton for a set period of time by right clicking the icon in the taskbar and dissable it, the options for a set time should then appear. You can also check in the bios F2 or Del on start up and in the advanced cmos settings look for the line 'Wake On Lan' and maybe dissable it if you are on a wired network, save settings and exit. Remember also if you have an optical mouse they are more sensitive to noise or vibration or movement and will wake your pc.

How do I get my hp pavilion a1030n out of power save mode???

In order to help users save electricity and battery charge, Windows operating systems include a setting that puts the computer into standby mode if it's left idle too long.

While usually a helpful feature, it can sometimes interrupt long processes like virus scanning or downloading long files.

However, you can easily change these settings, and there is even a way to have your computer automatically switch between settings depending on how you are using it.

Click the "Start" button and select "Control Panel." Wait for the "Control Panel" window to open.
If it is not already, set the "View by" drop-down menu to "Category."

Click "System and Security," then "Power Options." This displays a list of the default power usage plans that Microsoft and HP add to your computer.

The plan with the filled dot on its left is the one you are currently using. Click the "Change Plan Settings" link to the right of the active power plan.

The drop-down menus following "Put the computer to sleep:" allow you to determine how long the computer will wait when left idle before automatically going into standby mode.

If you have a laptop, choose different settings for when the computer is plugged in or running on its battery.

If you want to computer to always remain on, select "Never" from the menu.

Won't go into sleep mode

Which operating system ?

Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work.

This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation.

Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money!

Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow.

The Shut Down menu appears.

Point at "Sleep" and click on this option.

Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode.

Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse.

There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on.

All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode.

Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time.

Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security."

Click "Power Options."

A menu opens.

Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode.

If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity

Your Computer in sleep mode

First, save all of your work. Information in computer memory is not saved while your computer is on standby.

From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel, then Power Management.

Click Standby Beside When I Push the Power Button.

Push the Power button.

Automatically Putting Your Computer on Standby

Save all work before leaving your computer.

From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.

Double-click Power Management.

Set the times that you want your system to go on standby, to shut off the monitor and to shut off the hard disks.

Click OK. Your computer will go on standby according to the schedule you have entered.

Putting Your Computer in Hibernation

From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.

Double-click Power Settings.

Click on the Advanced tab.

At the When I Push the Power Button On My Computer screen, click Hibernate.

Click the Power button.

Hope this helps.

When I turn on computer, the monitor say going to dpm mode. any help?

DPMS (Display Power Management Signaling) is a standard developed to save energy and maximize the useful life of computer displays. By switching the horizontal and vertical sync lines on or off, a DPMS compliant video card provides the capability to place the monitor into one of four modes (Normal, Standby, Suspend, Off).
Each mode puts the display into a different powered state from fully powered up, to the Off mode. In the Off mode, only a small auxilliary circuit is running which monitors the horizontal and vertical signals to wake up the monitor.

When i shut down my pc it shuts down, but the psu stays on, i can turn it off by the button but not by the desktop, any ideas???

Hi, "Sleep" mode or "standby" mode allows your computer to go on standby or sleep until you "wake" it up again. This is a power saving feature which is usually used for a few hours. You can change it to completely shut down everything (including power supply) in power supply options in your control panel. Check out your help section for sleep or standby options. Hank

It is possible that you have a CA Voltage problem... so, do you have overvoltage protection at power supply?. though you should remove jumper from "boot block" pins (or similar) in the Motherboard (HP computers usually have it). This surely willl help you.

Comuter will not stay in standby mode.

So why do you need the computer in stand-by mode anyway? My computers are either on or off. Off saves power and hardware.
