Question about HP EliteBook Computers & Internet

3 Answers

I heard there was a sleep button. Is this true? And if so, where is it?

I use my HP EliteBook for school, and I liked putting my old computer to sleep instead of just closing it. If there was a way for me to close it instead of manually going in and putting it to sleep, it would benefit me greatly.

You should press the fn key followed by half a moon enclosed in a box sign available at the function keys (can be f3 or f5 or any other function key depending on the keyboard) and that should put your PC to sleep..

Not sure, but if you installed any new software, such as Anti-Virus, or Anti spyware, it may have been disabled to facilitate scanning.

SOURCE: HP Pavillion dv6000 once in sleep mode, won't wake up/crashes

Yeah I can understand. I must assist by telling you that you can configure these settings by using POWER SETTINGS application which you can find in your CONTROL panel.

Your all confusions and doubts will be clarified by that application and then you will have to reboot system manually. You can choose configuration for your best personal use.

If this solution was helpful to you then please rate 100% (or FIXYA) for this solution, otherwise don't rate at all. It was my pleasure helping you.

SOURCE: My Laptop will not Stand-By

There are 3 parts to standby. Your version of windows must support it. You have the utility enabled and working. The display switch must be operating.

If you have checked the power utility setting and are sure they are right and the utility is installed operating right then your problem is the lid switch.

On some models you can see it under or along the bottom edge of the screen. To check if it is working use something like a tooth pick to depress the switch. The display should at least blink out when fully closed. If you can't find it or get at it you can close the display and try to spot any light coming from the screen. It should be easy to see but if nothing else try a dark room. The display should go dark as the lid closes fully. It will be pretty close to when its down so can be hard to see when.

If the display is working after you close then the switch needs replacement. If it goes dark then I would reinstall the power utility as something may have got corrupted.

Hp elitebook 2730p I left the tablet on and when I came back the screen was blank. I can't get the tablet switched off or get the screen to work and I think it might overheat if I leave it like this -...


Hi,

Either your laptop had gone to sleep or hibernate mode. You can set the timers under Power Options on the Control Panel for the laptop to go on sleep mode or hibernate mode if idle for span of time.

You can wake up the laptop by touching the touchpad, pressing a key or pressing the power button.

However, if above options will not work, the only option for you is to press and hold the power button for at least 5 seconds to completely turn off the unit. Try to power on the computer if it will boot up okay.

***ADDITIONAL NOTES FOR CASE TO CASE BASIS**

If you still get black screen, remove the battery and the ac adapter (charger) then press the power button for at least 20 seconds to discharge power in the motherboard. You can now reinsert the battery and power on the system normally.

***NOTE: If the computer will not boot up, the LCD or the motherboard might have failed.

Hope this helps.

The slot is in the front of the laptop right next to the button to open the laptop. Once you insert the card it should be recognized in windows and you can access it through My Computer.

Effect of sleep button


Hi a_hedges,

Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player-the computer immediately stops what it's doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.

When a computer is in Sleep mode, the power light is blinking and you get a blank screen like it's turned OFF.

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.

Hope this helps.

My keyboard has a quarter moon on a round button top left what is this


Hey,
that is very likely the sleep button, it puts the computer into a low power sleep state, which you can turn it back on by pressing any button or mouse.
just let it go to sleep first before you start pressing other buttons again.
if its not coming up press on the power button once and it wakes up.
let me know if you have any other questions.

Monitor goes to sleep and won't wake up


Yeah, im not sure about how to fix the problem with it shutting down like that, but one option is to go under your control panel and taking off the sleep function, or putting it on a 4 hour timer so that doesnt go into sleep mode anymore. However, the problem is not your monitor but your computer. Id just take the sleep mode off, there is no need to have it on.
