Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook

1 Answer

My IBM T23 Laptop screen keeps going off (hibernating or sleeping?)

How do I change the setting so that the screen does not go to hibernate or go to sleep?  Or, as I am not familiar with programming computers and changing settings, what should I do to turn it on again besides removing and replacing both the main batter and backup battery? On internet I found T23 manual for maintenance and repair, but not User Manual. I bought this secondhand and have not had it very long, so I'm not used to it and it is my first laptop. Pls help me.
Thanks

    After about 2 seconds, the monitor goes to sleep and it won't wake up for longer than that.

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.

Laptop does not wake up after sleep


I see this problem a lot, in most cases it is a problem with the ACPI driver. The easiest solution is to make changes to the Power Management settings. What happens is part of the computer goes to sleep and part goes into hibernate. Unless I am trying to conserve battery power I set the system to always on and use the screen saver to protect the screen from damage. If I am looking to save battery then I still set the screen to always on with the black screen saver and set the rest of the settings to sleep with no Hibernate settings. Hibernation is nice but really does nothing more than write data to the hard drive so the system can restart and you do not save anytime allowing it to operate. It causes more problem in configurations than it solves. In fact the only machine I might consider using a Hibernate setting on would be a server.

I am tying to charge my ipod but my laptop but ifi am not using my laptop for more than15 mins. how do i get my laptop to stay on while i am not using it


Go to help or control panel and type in 'sleep and hibernation faq' and follow the 'power options' to the directions to keep the computer from sleeping and hibernating.


You can adjust how long your computer waits before sleeping or
hibernating-or prevent it from turning itself off altogether. But be careful. On
a battery powered laptop, inhibiting sleep or hibernation can result in data
loss if the battery dies. Here's how to prevent your computer from entering a
power-saving state:



  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Power Options.


  2. On the Select a power plan page, click Change plan settings next to the selected plan.


  3. On the Change settings for the plan page,
    click Change advanced power settings.


  4. On the Advanced settings tab, double-click
    Sleep, double-click Sleep after, and
    then do one of the following:



    • If you're using a laptop, click On battery
      or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click
      Never.


    • If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.



  5. Double-click Hibernate after, and then do
    one of the following:



    • If you're using a laptop, click On battery
      or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click
      Never.


    • If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.



  6. If you also want the display to stay turned on, double-click Display, double-click Turn off display
    after
    , and then do one of the following:



    • If you're using a laptop, click On battery
      or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click
      Never.


    • If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.



  7. Click OK, and then click Save
    changes
    .

Screen goes blank every 30 second, have to hit the


go to control panel > power options. Turn off hibernate and sleep mode, change all settings to never sleep and change the setting for "when closing the lid" to "do nothing" sleep mode, hibernation can destroy the registry on these laptops, you are better off turning that garbage off and just letting it run.

When my computer goes into sleep mode it freezes after 5 seconds


There are a lot of systems out there having trouble with the sleep and hibernation programs in windows. The first thing I would do if I wanted to keep the sleep and hibernation programs in place would be to update the BIOS file on the system. I for one am a believe the computer in turning off the sleep and hibernation. They have caused more corrupt windows installations than I care to remember or work on again. If you want to try turning these off for a while and see how the computer reacts, go to the control panel > power option > scroll through the settings and change the way the computer sleeps and hibernates. Also change the setting for what happens when the lid is closed. Change it to "Do Nothing" this will correct a case of the computer not waking up from somply closing the lid. The lcd will automatically turn off when you close the lid and turn back on when you open it...you don't need the computer going to sleep simply because you close the lid for second.
