    when i turn it on the lights in the front light up but it only boots up 95% of the way. it wont read a recovery disk and i try to press f2 or f12 and it does nothing.. im just wondering what it might be, i dont know alot about computers. there could have been a power interuption perhaps i dont know but like i said i just moved the mouse to wake it back up and it didnt do anything. my adaptor doesnt have a light on it so i cant tell if that is working properly. thanks for any info you have on this..

It went into hibernation mode you most likely knew that. While it was on was there a power cut? its likely your power adapter. Please explain a bit more what it does when you turn it on does the lights lite up can you see the adapter lite on if there is one. You can leave a laptop on for days there may have been a power cut and stuffed your adapter up like a power serge unbenown to you?.

    Try it without the adapter see what happens...I dont think the adapter is faulty. when you say it only starts up 95% Im trying to figure out what you mean is there a meter on your machine to tell you this or are you talking of the battery at 95%. You said you pressed F2 F12 try pressing F8 to boot to safe mode? Does anything light up on the screen or does it stay black in any attempt. Perhaps (this is a theory) the screen might be stuffed plug an external to the laptop see what happens then??????

Computer will not wake up from sleep mode


Best way to restart it from wake up is remove the battery (if it is a laptop) or push the power button for at least 10 seconds (or more) until you can't see any lights at all or any sound from the hard drive. That is the only way you can restart the computer if it is not waking up from sleep mode.

Pc keeps waking up


Some things that caused this same issue for me were:
1. I had a very sensitive mouse and even though I was in bed, the mouse would move very slightly, but not noticeably, and that woke my computer up.
2. I have also had problems with USB devices (keyboards, mice, and wireless adapters). Sometimes, and usually over a period of several years, the ports on the computer will become loose (or something), causing the USB device to move around a little if the desk gets bumped. This caused my computer to play the "USB device removed and inserted" sound, and it also caused my computer to wake from sleep.
3. Check out your Scheduled Tasks. You are bound to have a few if you are not the type to manually delete them all. If updates are scheduled to run in the background, this could also be waking your computer up. Look out for Google, Apple, Adobe, and Java in particular. I always see them in Task Scheduler. And somehow, Google update keeps reappearing.

The WiFi keeps turning itself on. I turn it off and it turns itself back on ..


Why would you turn it off unless you are using another wifi adapter?
Most computers are set up to start the wifi when restarting the computer as default. If you don't want it on, don't restart the computer. I never restart mine, I just put it to sleep. It is dormant until you click something to make it wake. Nothing is working while asleep or hyberated. Perfectly safe, (but turn off the mouse it may wake with vibration of walking across the room).

You should be able to just press the main system unit power button to wake up your 'sleeping' computer which will then resume your Windows desktop and bring you back to the Login panel if you have a password set for your account.

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

You should check the "Power Options" when the computer "Sleeps" & "Hibernates". Go to the "Control Panel" if you Win 7 or below, if you have Win 10 just type "Power" on the "Search Box" on the bottom left of the screen and then click "Edit a Power Plan" and set when the Computer "Sleeps" and when it "Hibernates". Basically when you move your mouse you are waking up the Computer from "Sleeping" or "Hibernating". Goodluck.

How can I wake my computer from sleep or hibernation?

On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop. Check the documentation that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.

Wireless mouse not recognize after HP elitebook wakes up


Mine does that also. Usually it is because one of both have gone into sleep mode and both haven't woke up. I click on the left and right mouse buttons and it usually comes right up.
