I believe this model only comes with Vista. Go to Control Panel, and on the left hand side click Classic View then click the icon for Power Options.

There will be a few options under Preferred Plans and one is selected (Filled in dot)

Under the Power Plan that is selected, click Change Plan Settings and on the next screen, click Change Advanced Power Settings.

You will have a new window that opens up with a bunch of categories with little boxes with + signs. Click the + Sign box beside sleep to open op the menu. In the options under sleep, change HYBRID sleep and HIBERNATE to NEVER. Especially the Hybrid sleep as this was a problem I found with Vista. It sounds like the computer is going into the Hybrid/Hibernation and not comping out from it unless you power off the computer and turn it back on

Also, click the + sign beside Hard Disk and make sure the option to "Turn off Hard Disks After" is also set to NEVER

Monitor won,t wake up from sleep mode


Open monitor and look at power supply board for capacitors which are "balooning" or deformed in any way. These look like cylindars on the board. These tend to dry out and make what you are describing occur. Replacing them usually fixes about 80% of the problem you are describing. Those parts run about $0.25 to $0.75 each.. well worth trying, right?

Blank screen after monitor sleep just blue flashing light


Hi,

First of all you can change the Power Settings in Control Panel. You can configure as you need. I mean after how much wait it should go for sleep n all.

If it takes 5 min. to wakeup that means you have so many applications running that system cannot manage or RAM is small.

The final solution just remove the Display drivers and reinstall it.

After removing please restart the system once to proceed further

Screen shows message "no input signal" and monitor goes to sleep.


monitor show "no input singnal" error masage when not gating any type of video singnal ,
so if u realy check your monitor wires for correctty plugged in .
then:-

Two possibilities:

either the video/mainboard of the monitor is defective; or
the video card/ CPU is the faulty.

A way to verify is to try the PC with another monitor or to try the monitor in another PC.

thanks

Monitor TFT 5015 now says "going to sleep


Make sure the laptop's external VGA port is turned on. There will be a function key somewhere on the keyboard (location varies by manufacturer and model) that controls the connector. If the connector has gotten turned off the external monitor will go to sleep because it's not getting any input.

Monitor "Goes to sleep"


Have you tried to go in thru the control panel and select "display"? From here you can go to the screen saver section and adjust the time it takes for the screen to cut out. Of course you want to use a monitor that you can read before you set up both of your screens.. See if that helps....

Going to Sleep


Due to the power surge, it is highly possible that the monitor was given a boot by your computer on it's way out.

This will short out a very small transistor inside the monitor on the video board and in turn, then monitor cannot see that there is a signal so goes to sleep.

If you get brave enough to venture inside the screen, then check near the cable input. The transistors are only around 3mm and have 3 legs (two one side and one in the middle on the other).

If you find anything like that burnt (get a magnifying glass) then replacing the board is the easiest option. Just don't be tempted to wipe the board before you look at everything very closely, you may wipe away the tiny bit of evidence you are looking for.

Hope it helps =)
