    If you reboot the machine does it come back up to the desktop? are you just wanting to know how to turn off standby by mode? Sorry for the questions, but this is all I see... "

    Computer is on but in constant standby mode and..."Just need some more info.

    Have you tried actually unplugging the power cord from the back of the machine. if there is a light on the back of the power supply let it go all the way out. Then plug it in and turn it back on.

How to turn off safe mode?


When booting up computer constantly tap F12. until you get a boot selection screen.
At that point use the arrow key to make sure start windows normally is selected, and hit enter.

That will knock it out of safe mode. if by hitting F12 you do not get to the boot selection screen, then shut off the laptop, unplug the charger, wait 10 seconds, and then turn the computer on, and the menu should appear.

I hope this was helpful!

SAYS IT IS IN STANDBY MODE


your best option is to remove the powercord from the back of the computer and wait a minute before plugging it back in and turning on your system this will delete the "standby mode save" and turn on your PC normally

Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

Gateway MX6927 Windows Xp won't boot


put your xp disk in the optical drive.Turn off computer. Turn computer back on as soon as you turn it on start tapping f 12 constantly.it should go the boot menu giving you a choice of booting from cd or hard drive choose boot from cd.Be sure you choose repair rather than new installation or you could loose all your information stored on the hard drive,I personally would try safe mode first you can get to safe mode by tapping f 6 when you first turn on your computer.

My Gateway 500s monitor is stuck in power save mode


Try tapping the F8 key while booting the computer, you will get the start up menu, choose safe mode, when you log on, go to the display settings, that is right click on the desktop, properties, screen saver, advanced and make sure that hibernation is off, along with turn off disks or whatever , probably see turn off monitor after XX minutes, I make ours 15 minutes (150 computers and servers), I don't let the disks turn off. Choose always on also, not home/office. Try this and see if these settings help.
