VPCSA does not properly go to sleep / hibernate

Hello,I have a Sony VPCSA and a probleem with sleep mode / hibernate. Quite regularly, it will not properly switch off when going into sleep mode / hibernate. The drive keeps running, the keyboard stays lit the screen goes black and switching it off is the only way out, which produces an error message on restart.it appears that the problem goes away as soon as you re-install any given driver, but that does not last long. There also seems to be a correlation between length / intensity of activity and failure (i.e. sleep works immediately after booting, but not wwwhere the machine has been used for some time). No direct link to the connection of external devices.Any idea?Thank youP.

My advice is to shut down and unplug the Laptop when not in use. Set the Power Options to High Performance, set Sleep and Hibernate to never, adjust your Advanced Power to shut down when lid is closed. A reboot everyday resets the computer and IF there is a Power Surge your Laptop will not get fried. If left plugged in the battery COULD malfunction and become a fire hazard. Not to mention the unnecessary power applied to components and shortening their lifespan.

Testimonial: "Thank you, but that is a workaround and in my circumstances not particularly helpful for that I "work on the street" and my laptop opens and shuts its lid about 30 times a day..... sleep / hibernate is imperative."

SOURCE: Laptop apprears to go into sleep mode while I'm using it

To my knowledge it could be hibernate mode for laptops to save battery life when not plugged into the wall, try pressing the power button, my Compaq did that too. Also don't hold down the power button as after 5 seconds it just shuts off the laptop, unless you wanna do that.

SOURCE: Acer Extensa 5210 laptop wont boot

Try the following:
1) Remove power cord, battery and hold the power switch down for at least 30 seconds.
2) Remove and reinstall your memory module(s).

If those don't do it, get back to me for more ideas.
Thanks!

Monitor has gone to power saving mode


Hello, The reason your monitor switched to power saving mode is because the operating system on your computer told it to. A computer left on and unattended is programed to sleep/hibernate after usually a short period of time. Without going to in depth, There are stages of sleep and after time the hibernation deepens. However, moving the mouse or pressing a key should take it out of sleep. Microsoft has a support page for this issue: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/266283 Good Day

Cant get power saving mode off


Step 1:
Sleep Mode b> Sleep mode is primarily used with home computers (desktop computers). Sleep mode is designed to save the current work, programs, and settings of your computer using your computers memory, while using very little power. b> Hibernate Mode b> Hibernate mode is primarily used with laptop's. Hibernate mode is designed to save your computers current state on to the hard disk, then turn off your computer to stop using power completely. This mode is usually used when you do not plan on using your laptop for an extended amount of time. Benefits b> Using Hibernate mode is more power-efficient, but files may become fragmented over time by using this mode frequently. Sleep mode does consume more power, but the advantage that Sleep mode has over Hibernate is that it does not take as long to resume your computers former state when you are ready to continue using it.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users

By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.

* might your pc is in Hibernate or Sleep mode

A power management mode that conserves power by powering down the system. In hibernate mode the current state of the system is saved to the hard drive, and the system will power down. When a user turns the system power back on, the saved information is read from the hard disk, restoring the last used settings. Hibernate mode is similar to sleep mode, however in sleep mode the power cannot be shut off.

go to control panel > power management and change or default the settings you wish.

it's probably in hibernate mode. go to your display properties ->screen saver, click the power tab and check the hibernate tab, try disabling hibernate.
Sometimes, if a machine won't properly wake from sleep, there may be a bug in the BIOS, you can try updating to the latest BIOS for your machine. Check the manufacturer's website to see if an update is available.

Hiberation mode ,,what do i do/


Hello,

Hibernate mode is a power saving feature for computers. In hibernate mode, the current state of a computer is saved to the hard disk, and the computer shuts down. A user will have to power on the computer to restore the previous settings. When a computer resumes from hibernate mode, it reads the saved settings from the disk and restores the system state as it was before it entered hibernate mode. By default, hibernate mode is disabled. If a computer is not ACPI-enabled or APM-enabled, users will have to enter hibernate mode manually. Users cannot set the computer to automatically hibernate after a certain time. With ACPI-enabled and APM-enabled computers, users are able to set hibernate mode automatically

How to enable Hibernate:
Please follow this steps below to enable your Hibernate features:

1. Go to Main screen in your windows then right click your mouse to an empty area in your main menu.
2. After clicking the right click please select the properties then go to Screen Saver Tab.
3. Please Click the Button name Power then click the Hibernate Tab.
4. Please check the CheckBox name Enable Hibernation to enabled the hibernation if it is not hibernated.
5. To try test the Hibernate process please follow the steps in How to start using Hibernate below.

How to start Using Hibernate:
Please follow this steps below to active your Hibernate Features:

Make sure all necessary programs are closed prior to shutting down. Hibernating will put all programs to "sleep," but some programs won't start up properly. Experiment after this to figure out which programs perform as intended.
  1. Click Start and Shut Down,
  2. Point the standby button and maintain the shift key pushed,
  3. A new hibernation button appears: click it while still holding the shift key: voila your PC will hibernate.
Thanks

Disable hibernation in the power settings. I've run across many computers that do not respond properly to hibernation mode, and that do the same thing. It's easier to simply disable hibernation mode and have it fall into sleep mode instead.

Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.
