Have you disabled "Wake on LAN" in the power settings? There are also other settings in Power management that could affect this.
There should also be general settings for power savings such as "none" "medium" and "maximum power savings" With a little explanation of each.

Windows Vista : System not coming up from Sleep Mode.


Disable Hybrid Sleep Mode in Windows Vista Windows Vista has a neat new feature for laptops called “hybrid sleep”. Actually, Windows Vista has a neat new feature for laptops called sleep too, so I’m getting ahead of myself a bit.
Windows used to have a fairly simple hardware suspend command called “standby”. However, this operation took a while to execute (both entering and exiting standby) and it was somewhat unreliable when performed repeatedly, on certain hardware or with certain applications running. Sleep is meant to alleviate these problems by just serializing the current state into memory and then shutting down all devices other than the RAM. With the OS state simmering in memory like that, entering and exiting sleep is nearly instantaneous. However, the dark side to all this is if there is a power outage while the computer is in sleep, all of the unsaved data is lost (since it just existed in memory). That’s where hybrid sleep comes in.
Hybrid sleep saves the OS state into RAM, but it also writes it all to the hard drive as well (sort of like hibernate does). This ensures that even if power is lost, the data will remain. This all sounds like a good idea, but in practice it’s just as slow as standby was.
Now, laptops have batteries and most of them are configured to enter hibernate when the battery dips below a certain level. This means that unless the battery is physically removed, power to the RAM is never unexpectedly cut. Thus, we don’t really need the hybrid sleep feature. Unfortunately, giving hybrid sleep the pink slip is a little harder than it could be.
Step one, open up the power options setting from the control panel and select the “Change plan settings” link below the selected power plan.


Once in the resulting dialog, choose “Change advanced power settings”. Now you need to scroll through the miles and miles of options to find the “Sleep” node. Expand this, and then the “Allow hybrid sleep” node below it. You should see two options, “On battery” and “Plugged in”. Set both of these to “Off”.

Once this is done, click “OK” and you should be all set! From now on, whenever your laptop would normally go into “Sleep” – usually when the lid is closed or when inactive for a certain time – it will enter full sleep mode, rather than hybrid sleep. And when you go to awaken it from its slumbers, it should be fully responsive within a second or two of reactivation – as opposed to the 10-15 seconds after hybrid sleep.

Define "standby" mode.


Hello,

The standby mode is a power saving feature. In this mode, a it does not shut down completely, just goes to low power state and so it consumes less power. When it resumes from the standby mode, full power is restored.. During the standby mode, if the power supply is disconnected or interrupted, data might be lost.

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

After i touched the reserved button, the router stopped working.


Did you press the Reset button on the router ?
If you press the reset button then the router will come back to the factory default settings. You will need to reconfigure the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

How do i stop the monitor going to standby or sleep while watchin movies every so often?


Vista: "Control Panel"-->"Power Options". On the left hand side you will see various options, you want the one labeled "Choose when to turn off the display". You will have 2 settings you can change, 1.Turn off the display and 2. Put the computer to sleep. For both of those options, change them to "Never".

XP: "Control Panel"-->"Power Options". There will be a setting for "Turn Off Monitor", change it to never.

When I close the laptop and reopen it, there is just a black screen and I can't get it to work. So I end up having to turn off the computer. Also when I go to the shut down from the start menu, the standby...


You probably have a sticking hibernate, or sleep button. Near the hinge, there is a tiny pin looking thing sticking up. When you shut the computer, this presses against a switch below the case and puts the computer into sleep or hibernate mode. If this sticks, it won't boot up right. Shut the computer down and use canned air to blow out at the pin opening to clear any debris.

I pressed the sleep button by accident and the pic and sound went off and the stand by/timer red light started blinking. what does it mean?


Depends on how many times it blinks,just count the blinks Example: if it blink 2 times then pauses and blink 5 times then the code would be 25 and so on

Once you have this code,please post it.
