Problem solved. inside this computer there are a set of dip switches a block of 4 top middle of circuit board, 1 up 3down, what i did was to switch all switches to the the up posistion, and not having a clue what would happen.

Ureka the computer came on, if you switch of and switch on again comp becomes operative at once, depending how long you leave it off the longer it takes to come on.

Example if it is switched off say overnight it will take about 2.5 mins to come on, it seem that the comp is doing some sought of self checking. I could play around with those dip switches but as it is now working and i understand what is happening (I think) i will leave well alone.

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 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

I have a dell C521 tower,switch it on but light stays on orange,fans work but it wont switch on.help.


Hi,
if the light remains Orange, Possible In Standby/Sleep/Hibernate Mode.
Try pressing And Holding The power Button For 4-5 seconds Or more.
If this Fails, remove the power Cable, remove side-panel ( Unless Warranted ) locate the silver cmos battery, on the motherboard. remove the battery for 10 seconds, replace and repower and startup. failing this i,d suspect the ram/memory or cpu.

Monitor keep going into "sleep" mode


Check the power setting in control panel of windows. If you have a monitor from another computer swap them and see if the problem stays with the computer or monitor.

Computer not sleeping in sleep mode.


One possibility is if you have an optical/laser mouse that is on a relective surface and the mouse light is reflecting and triggering the computer to think that there is activity.

More than likely, your network card is keeping your computer from staying in sleep mode as any internet data activity is taking the computer out of sleep mode making the computer think there is activity.

There is an option in the Network Adapter properties that says to "Allow this device to wake up your computer"

Go to Control Panel and click Classic View on the left hand side

Double Click the Network and Sharing Centre Icon.

On the left hand side of the window that opens, click Manage Network Connections.

Right Click on the connected Network Connection. It is probably the Local Area Connection. Right click on it and choose Properties

A new box will open up. Click the Configure button under the Connect Using: box

Click the last tab at the top that says Power Management.

Under the Power Management tab click the square box that is beside: Allow this Device to Wake the Computer to take the checkmark out of the box. Then Click OK at the botton and close all the windows.

Let the computer go into Sleep mode and see if the computer still comes out of sleep mode on its own.

Let me know if this worked for you,

Ry

Hello, my name is David and i am having a problem with my epson all in one computer except keyboard .model 730-2025, i do not have a remote control it is stuck in standby or sleep mode, the power supply is...


Check for a sticky power switch or reset switch to see what happens, but also check all of your internal connections because this could cause a similar reaction. I am not sure if your system has dual processors and a four pin connector, but check that first. It is located near the processor and would have green and black wires extending from it. Good Luck.
