HP Pavillion Keyboard Dies

Hello I have an HP Pavillion and sometimes when the machine is on for a while when and goes into sleep mode, when I come back the keyboard wont respond. I can move the mouse, open programs, and the machine otherwise seems like its working, but the keyboard won't work. I have to restart the computer to get it to work again. Any leads on to why this happens would be great. It is a wired keyboard. Thanks

My suggestion to you is to do research into power saving settings. If its a usb keyboard, you may be able to find information on your usb power settings. If your able to find the settings part, there may be something that says "reduce power in power saving mode". This setting may even be in your fact, that would be the first place I'd look. The second would be my device panel. If you do find the setting, tell your usb to not save power. This may help. I'd also suggest to go onto hp's site and see if there are updated drivers for power saving modes especially if you have a ps/2 keyboard. Sometimes there are hotfixes that solve problems like these what are 'optional' downloads. If you still cant figure it out, let me know.

Hp pavillion t660a... when i turn power on the light flashes a few times like it would as if it was going to startup normally, then everything goes neutral and nothing happens. is this a motherboard p

It sounds like your computer is in sleep mode or hibernation mode. remove the battery and unplug it from the wall wait a few seconds and try again. If it does it again press the sleep button on your keyboard. Also make sure no flash drives or cds are in the computer during boot up.

HP Pavillion won't bring monitor back from sleep mode

hi...if u can read " no input signal" from ur screen, this means that ur monitor is ok..
Look if u have power buttons on ur keyboard.. try to wake it from there.. some pc may have shortcut keys to bring back the pc... look @ ur pc docs on the internet for more info...
However if it's a hardware issue, it may be that ur RAM memory needs to be cleaned

HP Pavillion laptop sleeping

There is another setting in the power options and it is above the sleep settings. It has to do with closing the lid. Click on that listing and choose "Do Nothing" as the choice, hit apply and ok. I do not believe there are any settings in the bios that deal with the sleeping of the system or components.

I just replaced my keyboard with a new one. Now,

the sleep button on your keyboard must be stuck
even though the key might not be stuck, the connection inside the keyboard might be stuck which makes the computer go to sleep again and again and again

try using a different keyboard

Try to boot the notebook with F8 Key. (Safe Mode)

Also try to go into the BIOS setting and change there --> Power and Boot Priority.
