The BIOS information is typically found at or near the top of the POST screen for a very short time ALR PC non / PCI = CTRL+ALT+ESC AMD advanced micro devices=BIOS = DEL Award BIOS = DEL Dtk Datatech Enterprises Co. BIOS = ESC Phoenix BIOS = CTRL+ALT+S Phoenix BIOS = CTRL+ALT+INS Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key usually Delete or F2 to enter setup

Sleep mode is a convenient power-saving feature used on both laptops and desktop computers. This feature powers down hard disks, monitors, wireless devices and any other power-consuming peripherals without turning the unit completely off and necessitating a reboot. Sleep mode can prevent battery drain if using a laptop or mobile device while away from the power supply. This mode is useful when quick access to a computer is needed, but can be irritating if the sleep mode takes a long time to come back from. It is simple to turn sleep mode off, based on the operating system being used.

Go to the "Start" button, then click on "Control Panel." In the control panel screen, click "System and Maintenance," then click on "Power Options." This brings you to the "Select a power plan" page. From the "Select a power plan" page, select the option that says "Change plan settings." This changes the settings on the currently selected plan. Select the "Change advanced power settings" option. Click "Sleep" and then click on "Sleep After" to expand it. If using a laptop or mobile PC, click "On battery" and "Plugged in," then select the "Never" option. This turns off sleep mode for both battery and AC use. If you are using a desktop computer, click "Setting," click the arrow and then click "Never" to turn off sleep mode. Click "OK," then click "Save changes" to save the modification. b> Turning Off Sleep Mode - Mac OS b> Click on the Apple logo at the upper left corner of the screen to open the menu and select the "System Preferences" option. From the "System Preferences" screen, click on "Energy Saver." If you are using a desktop, select "Power Adapter" in the top drop-down menu. In the second drop-down menu, select "Custom." Highlight the "Sleep" tab, then adjust the top slider to the far right, marked "Never." I f you wish the display to stay on, adjust the bottom slider to "Never." Click the red button on the upper left side of the "Energy Saver" screen. If you are using a mobile product or laptop, follow step 2 and select "Battery" from the top drop-down menu. Repeat step 3 to change the settings for battery use. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: emachine 5220 keeps tuning its self off

I think the problem  may be that your operating system  may have gone corrupt

try  to enter the Safe mode  (if you can )
and see if you can  revert back to old settings and whether it helps or not
else   you would have to
  reinstall the whole operating system

No, you should check all the background running processes, one of them is waking the computer from sleep.
It's a common problem with media players or media agents, firewalls and anti-virus programs that updates frequently over internet.

it's probably in hibernate mode. go to your display properties ->screen saver, click the power tab and check the hibernate tab, try disabling hibernate.
Sometimes, if a machine won't properly wake from sleep, there may be a bug in the BIOS, you can try updating to the latest BIOS for your machine. Check the manufacturer's website to see if an update is available.

My computer will only turn on in "sleep mode"


When the computer is on try just pushing the power button in and out once. if this doesn't work you may need to change some settings in the startup setup menu to keep sleep mode off. Usually when a computer is turned on there is something like "press F1 for Bios or DEL (something else) for setup" setup is where you'll want to go. it will look like an old MS DOS program but using your arrow keys to navigate you should be able to change the settings.

Emachines t6528 keeps shutting off on its own. I have been getting more error messages lately. Now it just shuts off whenever. The power button flashes on and off. The only way to get it back on is to...


The flashing power button indicates that the machine has gone into sleep mode. Moving the mouse or hitting a key on the keyboard should wake it up. But if it doesn't...

Go to Control Panel -> Power Options and change the Power Scheme to Always On (if you are still using XP) or High Performance (if you have upgraded to Vista).

This should solve the problem. You may also want to verify that you have the latest BIOS for your machine. Some motherboards have issues resuming from sleep mode due to bugs in the BIOS, so an upgrade may solve that problem. (Had a similar issue with my current system.)
