Open Question

C4580 shuts down when not in use, won't wake up.

It shuts itself down when inactive and cannot be awakened without unplugging it and then powering it back up.
I am running it on a new Mac powerbook.

    I have the same problem. Bought it with a new macbook. It goes on standby and won't respond to pressing any of the buttons. Like you, the only way to "wake it up" is to unplug and plug back in the power cord. Someone please help!

    HP C 4580 shuts down after about 4 hours and won't wake up unless the DC supply cord is unplugged and reconnected.

    This happened when the printer was about two months old.

    Same exact thing here bought with an iMac and the only way I have to wake it up is to unplug and plug back in so I leave it unplugged until I have to print...

    That makes 6 on this post. I have the same problem running on a pc wireless router. The printer goes to sleep after some period of inactivity and won't wake up. I have to unplug it and plug it back in to get it working again.

Why will my surface tablet not turn on?


If you mean that nothing happens at all when you push the power button along the edge of the device then the battery is dead or the device itself is defective.
If it is off and you are just tapping the Windows button or using the keyboard to try to wake it then use the power button to turn it on first. It will sleep after idle for a time and can be awakened by the keyboard or the Windows key.
Hope that helps...

New Computer Shuts Itself Down


Call DELL support. Doesn't sound normal. There is Standby and Hibernate modes; neither of which would require you to unplug and plug-in the power cord in order to start the machine.

Dell support will have you run the Dell diagnostic at startup which will detect hardware problems. Or you could run it without calling...

Unplug power and remove battery
Press and hold power button 20 seconds
Replace battery, plug power cord in
Hold down the "Fn" key (to left of space bar)
Turn power button on while still holding Fn key
When diagnostics begins, let go of Fun key
Note any errors; let Dell know your findings

HP DC7800 doesn't wake up (and power switch does nothing!)


Bad setting. If you press and hold the power button, the computer will shut off. That will keep you from having to unplug it.
