You need to tweak your power options to get this functionality back, these options are found in the control panel under power options.

My hp pavilion dv6810us notebook does not come out of sleep mode


Press the power button momentarily. If that doesn't work press and hold the power button until it switches of. On rebooting turn sleep mode off.

Toshiba Satellite L300D. Laptop will come out of sleep or hibernate mode without prompting and display the login box.


If the login box is displayed when it wakes up, that is usual. It uses a sensor to detect when the lid id open and will come out of standby when it thinks the lid is open.
Re configure the power off settings to avoid standby or sleep mode when the lid is closed.

Computer re-starts when i want it to shut down or sleep


You should check to see if there is a setting time where the computer installs updates, because the computer may be updating at a certain time and then restarts to finish the update. Check the setting to you might also have the computer restart every so often. hope that this helps.

Compaq presario CQ50 106CA. When powered on the power light and wireless light illuminates. The DVD sounds like it's initialising and fan runs, but screen blank. Ihave tried all basic fault finding...


Have you tried turning it on and selecting the function key combination for the screen? For example some screens use FN+F7, hold down the Function key and F7 to cycle between presentation modes.

When my computer goes into sleep mode it freezes after 5 seconds


There are a lot of systems out there having trouble with the sleep and hibernation programs in windows. The first thing I would do if I wanted to keep the sleep and hibernation programs in place would be to update the BIOS file on the system. I for one am a believe the computer in turning off the sleep and hibernation. They have caused more corrupt windows installations than I care to remember or work on again. If you want to try turning these off for a while and see how the computer reacts, go to the control panel > power option > scroll through the settings and change the way the computer sleeps and hibernates. Also change the setting for what happens when the lid is closed. Change it to "Do Nothing" this will correct a case of the computer not waking up from somply closing the lid. The lcd will automatically turn off when you close the lid and turn back on when you open it...you don't need the computer going to sleep simply because you close the lid for second.

I am unable to unhibernate


Power down the computer and power back up. Lets just shut hibernation off...you can always just have the computer sleep...it is much better on the system anyway.

Shutting Down Hibernation

Go to the control panel > Power Options > Hibernation tab > uncheck hibernate…this way you save a lot of disc space and don’t have to go through all the intermittent hibernation problems that occur. After you uncheck hibernation, you can go to the other power options and change how the computer reacts to the lid being closed, when it sleeps and for how long before sleep kicks in. Make sure to change the setting for what happens when lid closes to “do nothing” this will keep the laptop alive even though you close the lid to move it, etc.

Sleep and standby


Well... Sleep and Standby are not the same. While Sleep only turns off a few things, like display, WiFi, and HDD to save energy. Standby saves your session to the Hard Disk, the reason why the laptop seems unresponsible. This is the reason to uncheck Stanby if you want a fast wake-up.

HP Pavillion dv6000 Vista notebook crashes when entering sleep mode


This is a common problem with HP Pavilion laptops, including mine. Check and make sure there are no non-OS programs running that are trying to control power settings (like a power monitor program running in the system/task tray) and then turning of hibernation in the POWER SETTINGS and then for all "WHEN I CLOSE LID" and "WHEN I PUSH THE SLEEP BUTTON" and "WHEN I PUSH THE POWER BUTTON" select DO NOTHING, then APPLY. Then SAVE SCHEME AS and choose any new name. This will disable all sleep modes forever, but at least you can get on with normal use.

If you are geeky, try going into the BIOS and DISABLING anything marked WAKE ON, and disabling anything having to do with automatic power features, and then try hibernating and so forth normally through the OS again. Sometimes this works if there are conflicting settings in the BIOS also trying to increase power efficiency.

Good luck...

Compaq Presario 700 PC Notebook keyboard locking out


Check that your notebook power settings are correct, it may be that when you press off or shutdown it's actually going into hibernation or standby, this is only correct when you close the lid without shutting down through Windows. As for Windows Media Player, you cannot remove it as it's a Windows component, you can only dissable it through Add/Remove programmes>Add/Remove Windows Components.
