Gateway FPD2185W Monnitor Goes to sleep and won't wake up.

I too have what seems to be a sleep problem. Button won't work. This problem just began about a week ago. So far, unplugging it bring it back. But it is getting worse because this morning I had to off/on three times to get it back.

Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

If your desktop goes to sleep when it is idle, then this is controlled by your power settings and you can change the time for how long the system can be idle before going to sleep....If pressing a key or moving the mouse does not wake the system again, then try just pressing once on the power button which should cause the system to wake and bring you back to a sign-on panel again. Note: do not press and hold the power key as this will force power off if held for more than 4 seconds normally on most systems.

Gateway monitor fpd2185w goes to sleep and then shuts off


I suggest to mess around with the monitor buttons and see if you can disable it from sleeping from there. If not then try enabling it to sleep on your computer settings. A good restart after any changes is always helpful.

Can't wake up....gone into sleep mode...how do you wake it up


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.
