Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet

How can I stop stop my computer from going to sleep all the time.

My HP computer goes to sleep and I have to wake it up with a password. I've gone to the control panel and tried to change the sleep modes but nothing works. This has just started happening about 2 weeks ago.

Depending on what phone you have, you can perform a reset to get rid of the password. If you have an Iphone ( You will need a computer with Itunes for this )
  • Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
  • As soon as the screen goes black release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Then begin the reset process.

WHY DO MY COMPUTER STARTS WITH TWO STEP?


Sounds like it is in sleep mode at startup. On some compaq, hp, and emachines the power button also serves as a sleep button. If you touch it, they go to sleep, hold it down at least 4 seconds, they shut off. If it was shut off this way that could happen. Also look in display properties under sreenssaver/power options to find the timeout on going to sleep, hibernate, password on waking up, using the tabs,(xp), or categories on the left (vista, 7, 8) to find these features. Also check under power schemes, advanced, and UPS to select timeout features and password on waking up. If it was touched to sleep, touching it should wake it up and allow it to be shutdown properly. On the next startup it should be normal.

My HP w2007 has started clicking to Monitor Going to Sleep and then going blank. I have never known how to wake it up so I have to turn the whole computer off and restart. HELP


Hey there, Normally simply pressing a random key on your keyboard or moving your mouse should wake it up, if it doesn't though I think the easiest way to solve this is to simply turn off the sleep mode after x amount of time.
If you have windows 7, press the start button and type in "power options", go ahead and open power options and there you will be able to set the time it takes before your PC shuts down, and you can also set it to never.


If you still wish to use this feature but just want to be able to it's a bit tricky and it won't even work for all PCs but if the keyboard waking isn't working, then it's probably because your pc does have this feature. When your PC is off, boot it up again and enter the bios by pressing F10 i believe it is for HP. And somewhere you should be able to set which devices are allowed to wake up your computer, all devices are probably disabled now, so go ahead and enable the keyboard to wake up your computer. Now save and exit, and the next time your PC goes to sleep mode you should be able to wake it up by pressing a key on your keyboard.


I hope I was able to assist. If I was, please don't forget to rate this solution.

press and hold the power button down for about 5 secs. The computer will shut down. Restart it and right click on the desktop, go to properties then look for screensaver tab , then choose power options, click on hibernation tab at the top and uncheck enable hibernation. Or choose stanby options and choose a longer time before the computer goes to sleep.

Monitor goes to sleep and never wakes up


I have called HP Technical Support 6 times about this issue and have logged at least 14 hours into the issue. The things they have done are turn all sleep settings in the "Power Options" in the control panel to "never". The problem persisted. Today, they sent my problem to the complaints department, so maybe they will have the authority to do something for my 5 week old setup.

For me, the monitor was in the "other devices" part on the device manager (go to start menu and type device, and the device manager will show up). I went to HP's website to the support and drivers spot and found a patch for the My Display program. This will allow you to uninstall your monitor, just right click the monitor under "other devices" and click uninstall. After you uninstall, restart and your computer will recognize the and put it under "monitors" in the device manager with the updated drivers. After I did this, the monitor hasn't gone to sleep.

Vista wakes up on it's own. Never goes to sleep.


Sounds like you've tried all the obvious things. Did you check the BIOS settings and turn off all of the WAKE ON settings in there? Otherwise, it sounds like you might have a third party program which is scheduling without your knowledge (check your start up programs and running processes during normal use). If, when asleep, the machine runs a fan, it may also be waking up for the OS to receive a power or overheat warning message from the BIOS.

Problems with machines not going to sleep when asked are often related to drivers that are not unloading when asked to prepare for the sleep/hibernation process. If you have installed any new hardware (or driver heavy software like specialized encryption or hard drive management stuff) trying uninstalling it and testing the sleep functionality.

Ideas, anyway.
