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

Hit start Alienware computer goest to alien head on screen then straight to sleep mode. Please read


When you say computer clock do you mean the LED read out on the mother board? if so the numbers you are seeing are error codes you will need the mother board manual to know what those codes mean. If you don't have the manual it's possible you can go to the mother board manufacturers web site and download one then you can look up the codes to see what the problems are. Hope this helps

Try using a different monitor or use that monitor on a different computer to see if the monitor is bad. It shouldn't have anything to do with your CMOS battery. I'd check to make sure the monitor itself is good before I go tearing my computer apart. Let me know how it goes and maybe we can get it figured out.

Problem with hard-drive


Stand-by is sometimes in a deeper sleep than desired. Suggest that U disable the hd hibernation. HP is one of the many brands that have trouble with hd hiberation. The hd will always spin-down after delay when not being addressed. U don't save anything going to hibernation. If U leave Ur system on all the time, U need to shut-down and blow or **** the dirt out of the case every coupla months. The dirt will cause over heating and can create problems with the wakeup from hibernation.
