That is 2 issues, they may be related

if you use a wireless keyboard and mouse, they may prevent the system form going or staying asleep. If you use a wired mouse, turn it upside down, sometimes there is a little motion from the floor that is transferred to the desk and is translated as motion by the mouse.

As far as the large type is concerened, please explain further (where do you set the large type, is it in an application (specify) or the ease of Access Center?

Hope this helps

How do I take desk top out of sleep mode


Wiggle your mouse!
I have had a comp which refused to come out of sleep mode. In the end I had to set it not to go to sleep. To do this goto Control Panel > Power Options/Schemes.
There you will see a choice of times 'before going to sleep', including 'never'. Try to avoid this if possible as it adds a lot to wear of hard drive

Is there any way of putting a mac 10.6 on sleep and saving safari with say 4 tabs open?so when reawake safari will open with 4 tabs open?


Is this a clean install 10.6 or an upgrade? Does you Mac even sleep? The reason I asked is that a lot of Mac users had problems putting their Mac to sleep after they have upgraded their systems to 10.6. If your Mac does not sleep, you can download this freeware.
Anyway, if your Mac does sleep, putting your Energy Saver Preferences into Display Sleep mode only will put your display to sleep and will leave the hard disk / applications running.

I put my laptop in the sleep mode as a requirement for using "Magic Jack" and have using the power switch to go out of sleep mode and activate Vista. I read this could cause problems later but don't know...


Hi,

On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop.

It just need an interruption to wake from the sleep mode so its perfectly ok to do so by any key or by the power key....

For any further guidelines give a comment...

Sleep mode wakes up on it's own


turning off all the power saving items does not help this- it just ensures that it doesn't automatically power down your hard drive or shut off power to your monitor automatically when you aren't using it.
May I suggest Hibernation Mode as an alternative? this mode saves everything you are doing to disc and shuts your computer down completely. when you turn it back on, it will restore what you were last doing onto the screen, so you can pick up where you left off.
you can find more information on this and sleep mode from here: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/335c6a5d-0304-4af1-b135-6bf6c124dc111033.mspx#EZAAC

PC will not stay in sleep mode.


Hi,
it's not a hardware-problem - it's a windows feature smile_wink.gif - (and it really is one !) - please try this:
To prevent a USB mouse from waking your PC

1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.

2. In the list of device categories, expand Mice and other pointing devices.

3. Right-click the entry for the USB mouse, and then click Properties.

4. On the Power Management tab, clear the Allow this device to wake the computer check box.

5. Click OK.
Don't forget to do this with your mouse + keyboard !

My computer will not go to stand by or sleep mode


Were you able to make the computer go to sleep mode before? Well what you can try doing is go to start, run and type msconfig, click ok. You will get the system configuration window, then go to the startup tab in the system configuration window and at the bottom of the window there is a button as disable all, click that and on the same window there are startup items, select the antivirus program and items that you would need to have at the task bar. Then click apply and ok. You will get a message to restart the computer. Click restart. As it restarts you will get a message saying that you have used the system configuration window, click do not show me the message again in the message. Also you can go to start, right click on My computer and go to properties, click the hardware tab, and select the device manager button. That would show you the device manager window. From the list of hardwares listed in the window, right click on network adaptors, properties and under the power management tab uncheck all the power options checkboxes. Now you can close all the windows and try to go to sleep mode again. You can also try disconnecting the USB devices as you try going to sleep mode and see if that works, if yes, try connecting the USB devices one at a time and check again.

Vista wont start up


To remove the sleep mode: right click the desktop and select Personalize, Click screen saver, at the bottom of that window you'll see "Change Power Settings" Click on that. Next to the left side of the window click on "Change when the computer goes to sleep and change the setting to "Never".. As far as why its doing it is unclear without hands on work, but you should have warranty for it. Tell them to fix it or try a differ brand of PC.
