That is correct, sleep mode does not utilize / see the CMOS battery upon waking up. However when it's booting from off mode it does check the CMOS battery. I would recommend getting it changed, however it you don't the worst thing that will probably happen would be that you will have to reset the clock any time you completely remove power from the computer.

That is because while a computer is in sleep mode, it is still using power to keep the memory. The battery is only used when the computer is turned off. You should replace the battery as soon as you can in order to keep your computer running properly.

Please replace the battery when you have a chance. This will not only help you to remove that warning... but also to keep your system date current.

Stuck in sleep mode


remove the battery and unplug your power chord for 1 min. then plug your power chord back in and try to turn it back on.
if it works then plug your battery back in and see if it boots your system up without the power chord.
if everything works fine then go into your control panel and change your power options.

Sounds like your battery is faulty and not charging. Try replacing the battery or just use the mains lead with the battery removed. If this keeps happening replace the system board

Compaq presario f572us_power cycle off then back on every 20 to 30 seconds_display never comes on.


If the display never comes on sometimes its the battery. When the battery gets so low it won't boot until charged.

If you can boot check the power settings to see when the laptop goes into hibernation or sleep mode.

Cannot Boot


Removing the cmos battery isn't always enough to reset the bios you may need to find the 'JBAT1' terminal on the mobo and put jumper across pins 2-3 then back to 1-2. But it may be a faulty mobo where the charger connects to the board.
