Lap Top Automatically Goes into Stand By Mode

Recently my computer all of a sudden just turned off and when I tried turning it back on it went into stand by mode. The screen does not turn on and neither the hard drive or fans seem to be working. Only the Power light is blinking and the caps and number lock work. I tried taking out the battery and disconnecting the cpu from the wall outlet and left it overnight. The next morning, everything was back to normal and then all of a sudden it happened again. I tried the same steps and the computer worked again, but again it went right back into standby mode after a few minutes of use. Can anyone help me?

Hi Ansari
It sounds like a main board problem. The control voltage that goes to back-light inverter board; from the main board, goes down. Contact any service technician. This is not a user repairable fault. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Tv powers up but goes directly into stand by mode

An Electronic component has failed. Unless you can repair circuits, take it to a shop or friend who can. Consider cost of replacement. A few hundred will fix an old tv, a couple more and you have a whole new unit.

My display screen goes on and off

I find sleep mode nothing but trouble, eventually corrupts window files over extended use, go into power options, go to stand by and select never and click apply, next go to hibernate "top right" and click, make sure the check box is clear, if not! remove check and click apply and restart your laptop.

I would suspect the power supply problem first, look for bad caps with bulging top. Post back what you see so we can guide you further. See example of failed monitors due to bad caps:

Gerneral advice please

On hibernation, the state of the computer is saved to the disk, to turn it on again press the power button, the computer will read the hibernation image from the disc and restore its state.

You can press stand by, from that mode the computer should come back with the press of a button, the computer might also go into stand by if the cover is closed and come out of it when opened.

let me know if you have further questions.
