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.

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.

Is it normal for an acoustic solution 24" LCD TV to stay for like 10seconds before coming up after switching on from the stand by mode?


10 seconds doesn't seem an excessive amount of time. Standby is supposed to be a power saving mode - the fewer parts of the circuit that are kept in complete readiness for switch on, the less power will be saved.

These days there is much prejudice against using the standby mode and it would be expected designers would respond to this by changing the internal arrangements so standby consumes less power so when the set is switched on it will take time for capacitors to charge and digital computers to fully boot and so forth.
Think of it not so much as a TV but as a computer. A 10 second reboot from the sleep mode wouldn't be so unusual...

If the TV works ok otherwise you probably have no worries...

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.

My laptop keeps saying hibernating and i cannot get to menu screen.


Definition: Hibernate is another option for powering down your laptop. When you use Hibernate all data will be saved to the hard drive in a compressed form. Once you start up from Hibernate mode you will be able to work with the applications and documents you left open before putting the laptop into Hibernate.
Hibernate is best used to conserve laptop battery power when you will be away from the laptop for more than a few minutes. You can put your laptop into Hibernate overnight or when you will be away from it for a few hours. Examples: Rather than shutting down my laptop each night, I use Hibernate to help conserve battery power and enable me to access my open files quicker in the morning.

If you are not going to use your computer for a few hours, it is a good idea to put it to sleep (also known as mode) to save power. If you are not going to use the computer for more than a day, it is usually best to turn it off.


hope it helps.... please rate if you like my post...thanks

Compaq F572US won't start (led turns on, but nothing happens)


I have been having the same problem. At first I thought that the motherboard was fried and the laptop was a paper weight, but I kept it plugged in and kept pressing the power button several times over the days. It would always seem to start (screen remained off/black) and then it would just go off again in seconds. But persevarence has paid off, finally almost after a week it started up like normal and started working again as normal. I then had the same episode repeat a few weeks later, the computer was useless for a few days and again started up as I kept pressing the power button several times a day.

I believe the problem is with the standby mode. Each time the problem happened, it seems like the computer was going into standby mode and the power button was pressed again before it could competely go into standby or the button was pressed again while it was coming out of standby.

To sum it up, nothing is wrong with the cimputer components, there is some problem with the standby routine. Keep pressing the power button and hopefully you can get lucky in getting the computer to start again. Long term, I am thinking about checking whether there was a new flash update that came out that could fix this problem. I purchased the laptop compaq F72US in 2008 and never updated anything. Also worth noting that I called HP and they didn't stand behind their product.
