I'm running Windows XP on a Sony XP desktop 2006. Purchased the ViewSonic 19" from Fry's and looks great. One thing that bugs me is that when I select sleep or hibernate mode, the monitor does not come back on. It stays black. Please help. Pierre

If the monitor says "no signal" then "going into sleep mode" and won't wake up - do the following: Set the Power Options to not enable hibernation on Hibernation Tab. Put the computer into sleep mode by briefly pushing the Computer's Power Button. Then bring it out of sleep by tapping "Space Bar" or "Escape" while moving the Mouse at the same time. The monitor should wake up. This method allows you to turn off the monitor power button and re-awake it without needing to restart the computer when the monitor won't wake up. Obviously be sure the monitor power button is on before you try to awake it.

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

Acer one with windows 7 ultimate fall into sleep mode

A laptop computer is typically set to conserve battery power. One of the common settings called standby, sleep mode or hibernation turns off power to the screen and the laptop itself after a preset time limit passes without any mouse or keyboard activity. It can be inconvenient for the computer to shut down while you're working on an open page or during a download. Change the setting if you don't want your laptop to going into automatic shutdowns

Turn the laptop computer on with the power button if it's not set to turn on upon opening. Allow the system to boot up. Open the panel for adjusting the sleep settings. This varies among the popular versions of Windows operating systems. To change the sleep mode setting on a laptop running Windows XP, click the "Start" button, and click the "Control Panel" selection. Choose the "Performance and Maintenance" selection, and click on "Power Options." Click the "Power Schemes" tab, and click the drop downs next to "Turn Off Monitor," "Turn Off Hard Disk," "System Standby" and "System Hibernates." Select "Never" for each drop down in both the "Plugged in" and "Running on Battery Power" columns. Click the "Hibernate" tab and click to remove the check mark in the box next to "Enable Hibernation." To change the sleep settings on a Windows Vista laptop, click "Start," "Control Panel," "Systems and Maintenance" and "Power Options." Then click "Change Plan Settings" under the currently established plan. Click on the "Advanced Settings" tab and select the "Never" option on the "Sleep," "Sleep After," "Hibernate After," "Display" and "Turn off Display After" drop downs. Click the "OK" and "Save Changes" buttons to confirm the settings. To change the sleep settings on a laptop running Windows 7, click the "Start" button, choose "All Control Panel Items," select "Power Options" and click "Edit Plan Settings." Click the drop downs for "Turn off the Display" and "Put the Computer to Sleep." Choose "Never" for both and click the "Save Changes" button.

VA902b monitor will flash on for half a second and then go black even though the light shows green. Didn't have any problems with the monitor until updates were automatically installed for windows....

The "sleep mode" is probably set too low.. or a "power saving" mode is set too cut off too quick..(sorry for the low information) .. I am at work on an Apple.. geeezzzz :(

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

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

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
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.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.

Fig. 1. Windows VISTA Start Menu. To put Windows VISTA to Sleep or Hibernate, click the small arrow head right next the Lock icon then click Sleep or Hibernate.

Fig. 2. Windows 7 Start Menu.
To put Windows 7 to Sleep or Hibernate, click the small arrow head right next the word Shut Down then click Sleep or Hibernate.

Please can you help us. when we turn the computer on the monitor light stays blue with the screen remaining black, when we turn the tower off the light stays blue when it usually has the orange standby...

There is probably a conflicting setting in your power management options. My recommendation is that you check the monitor setting in Windows and see how you have it set up. In Windows it is under CONTROL PANEL>POWER OPTIONS. There are a few differences between WINDOWS 7 and XP from here on out, but in general, do not select a scheme and do not select any hibernate, standby, or sleep modes. If you stick with a simple power saving option, like "TURN OFF MONITOR: After 15 mins." you should not have any further problems.

Many of the Windows "green schemes" will not work right with different combinations of BIOS, Hard drive, motherboard, and monitor. It is best to avoid them, unless you are very patient and willing to go the trial and error route. Good Luck!

My viewsonic monitor goes black after booting up

Does it do the same with other PC?
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed VIEWSONIC monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
