Question about HP EliteBook Computers & Internet
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.
Go to power options in the control panel and change the settings

In control panel, > Hardware and Sound > Power options > System settings you can set up what your computer will do after you push power button...... you can set up sleep and your problem is solved
it's in Windows 7////... other OS are pretty much same...

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.

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.
