I can't wake up my HP w1907v monitor. Please help!!

When I've pressed the 'half-moon' button on my keyboard and my HP w1907v monitor has gone to sleep, how do I wake it up again? I always end up having to switch off the computer - HP Pavilion Slimline - and start again - losing everything I was doing at the time. There must be a proper way to wake it up?? I try to avoid sending it to sleep but sometimes the button gets pressed by accident... for example my inquisitive cat!!

My HP w2007 has started clicking to Monitor Going to Sleep and then going blank. I have never known how to wake it up so I have to turn the whole computer off and restart. HELP


Hey there, Normally simply pressing a random key on your keyboard or moving your mouse should wake it up, if it doesn't though I think the easiest way to solve this is to simply turn off the sleep mode after x amount of time.
If you have windows 7, press the start button and type in "power options", go ahead and open power options and there you will be able to set the time it takes before your PC shuts down, and you can also set it to never.


If you still wish to use this feature but just want to be able to it's a bit tricky and it won't even work for all PCs but if the keyboard waking isn't working, then it's probably because your pc does have this feature. When your PC is off, boot it up again and enter the bios by pressing F10 i believe it is for HP. And somewhere you should be able to set which devices are allowed to wake up your computer, all devices are probably disabled now, so go ahead and enable the keyboard to wake up your computer. Now save and exit, and the next time your PC goes to sleep mode you should be able to wake it up by pressing a key on your keyboard.


I hope I was able to assist. If I was, please don't forget to rate this solution.

My keyboard has a quarter moon on a round button top left what is this


Hey,
that is very likely the sleep button, it puts the computer into a low power sleep state, which you can turn it back on by pressing any button or mouse.
just let it go to sleep first before you start pressing other buttons again.
if its not coming up press on the power button once and it wakes up.
let me know if you have any other questions.

How do I get my monitor back on if I accidently press the key in the top left corner (with the half-moon shape on it). What is that key for?


That's the sleep button
(half-moon -> night-time -> sleep).
It puts the PC into standby mode. Pressing the power button should bring it back to life.

I have a Compaq keyboard that has a half moon on the top left of it and I hit it and my monitor went blank. How do I get it back


Reboot the computer in Safe Mode by pressing F8 at boot up and selecting Safe Mode. Then go to Start->Control Panel->Keyboard. Here you will find settings of this keyboard. Disable the sleep mode. And your monitor will come alive. Whenever you have any problem you must first use the control panel and try your hands at DIY. But do remember what you did in what sequence to undo it later if need be.

What does the half moon lit up mean, No screen.


The half moon usually means the computer is in SLEEP MODE. Normally, pressing the spacebar will wake the computer up but I have noticed that sometimes, the computer can get "stuck" in sleep mode. If that is the case, you can hold the power button down (until the power turns off and the moon disappears). Wait a few seconds then hit the power button again to turn the laptop back on.

No display


Usually the keyboards have an fn key. Press fn + the key that has the sign of moon at the same time.

Also you may try to close your laptop and open it up and see if that will wake up the computer. Somehow your power setting on battery are messed up.

Hope that helps you.
