Question about Computers & Internet
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."

First try without the docking station, if the problem still exists, right cllick on the desktop area, click propertys, click screen savers, click power, in the 3 windows on the left "when plugged in" set first window set to never turn off monitor, 2nd never turn off hard drive, 3rd never go into standby. click advanced tab, 1st window enter do nothing, 2nd shut down, 3rd do nothing. click hybernate remove check mark that enables hybernation. I hope my suggestions and the other 3 suggestions fix your problem. BPCS

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.

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.

Try pressing F-8 and look for last known good working configuration.
If you are trying to reload from CD/DVD drive and it continues to boot into your old windows configuration, Enter your BIOS settings, and change the boot order to CD/DVD and then Hard drive
