I have been using Stand By quite frequently lately for quick start-ups. It's been working fine when I come back to the computer hours later butduring the last few days, I've noticed that Stand By is suddenly just going off and I'm back to completely re-starting my computer again. How do I keep stand By by from automatically shutting off- a problem that has just recently surfaced. I own an HP Pavilion DV5000 laptop.

Re: Standy By Going off/Computer shutting down
The presentation power scheme is used when you are giving a briefing using the PC as your slide show. So the presentation power scheme will never shut off the monitor or the hard drive, don't want it to shut down in the middle of a briefing.However, leaving it in that state for long periods of time may cause the CPU to overheat and shut itself down for protection. A better scheme for quick boot up would be Home/Office. Turn monitor off after 20 minutes and "never" for hard disk. This way it will save energy (therefore heat) and you will have a quick boot up. If you are using XP Pro, there is also an option to automatically put it in standby when you close the lid of your monitor. Hope this helps. If you have any questions let me know...

plz stand by is just a power safe option for ur laptop. with some laptops when u shut the screen they hibernate with others they go to stand by and others too shutdown. and the power button on ur machine is also configured to shutdown ur machine when its being pressed. u can change these setting in the control panel\power options. hope it solves ur problem
nope ...the problem might be from bios...it has a setting to power of when it gets to a certain temperature ...(CPU temp limit ) just ask for someone whom knows to set it ...and will be fine ...the other issue it might be the fail of your cpu cooler...and the temp exceeds normal values and its shutting down as a protection...when it gets to the maximum temp allowed. .So! just check first if it has a limmit around 70C or so ...and remove the limitation from bios...CPU settings..I dont know exactly cause there are a lot of bios variations...but when you will see it you wil know what to do .....good luck!
Is your laptop's Operating System Vista? Also, does the laptop completely power off or just go to sleep and nothing you do (touchpad/pressing keys) brings it out of sleep?
If it still is powered on, but won't come out of stand by, or sleep mode try this:
Go to Control Panel, and on the left hand side click Classic View then double 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
Wow that is strange. When the power supply turns off there cant be any more power. Are you sure you dont log off or go to stand by? My computer does that to. Since I reinstalled windows my cpu fan stays running and my 2 case fans. Just go to power options to adjust your standy by options.
