Black Screen / Computer Stays in Standby Mode

I recently closed my laptop lid without restarting, which caused it to go into standby mode. When I came back the screen stayed black and the power signal was blinking as if it were still in standby mode. I held the power button down to turn off the computer and when I turned it back on it went right back into standby mode with the power light flashing again. There are no lights other than the power light that turn on. I tried powering down and restarting with both AC and battery power with no luck. Someone please help!!!

Completely remove the battery and unplug the power cord for a few minutes. Reinsert battery and power up. You can also hit F8 when starting and see if you can boot into safe mode.

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.

Power light blinking on nv53a gateway

Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

Black screen

If the screen is breaking up into multiple screens, the video resolution isn't set correctly. Change the video properties back to the native resolution.

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen. Click on Properties at the bottom. Now click on the Settings tab.
The Screen Resolution slider should be all the way to the right, close to -> More.
The Colors should be set to the highest setting.

When you close the lid, you may have your laptop set to Sleep Mode, check that. You may also have your screen saver set to Blank, and no screen saver has been chosen.

(1.Screen Saver: Right-click on empty area of desktop>Properties>Screen Saver.

2.Sleep Mode: Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>Power Options>Power Buttons>When I press the sleep button on my computer>Then choose what you want it to do)

If none of this helps, I suggest you have a problem that HP needs to repair. Since you bought this dv9700t last July, would I be correct in assuming it's still under warranty?

Computer does not stay in hibernation or standby mode

That happen because on the stand by or hibernate setting the time was setting in 5 minutes.
Go to Control Panel >> Display >> Screen Saver >> Power

And set the time right there as your preferences.

Select "When I close my lid (or something to that effect)" and change it to "do nothing" or "ask what to do". There is nothing I hate more than a misbehaving hibernation mode!
