2005 XLT. What is causing battery drain?


It's highly unlikely that the head light washers are your draw. You will always get the spark when disconnecting and reconnecting the battery cable because you have modules still communicating. You can't do an actual draw test till the vehicle goes into sleep mode. You need to disconnect the negative battery cable and install an amp meter between the cable and the battery post and wait. Should be around 1 amp draw at first with everything off then you can watch as the modules got to sleep one by one the amperage will drop until it gets down to 20-50 milliamps. It may take up to 10 minutes for all modules to go to sleep.

How to wake Dell All in One, Win 7, from sleep mode


In Windows 7, there is a bug, if you put the PC in sleep mode when the system is running on batteries then it may still drain out the batteries and you cannot wake it up. In this case, you need to connect the AC power and reboot the PC. If you put the Pc to slepp when the AC power was connected. Then there are no issues and just by pressing the enter key it should come out of sleep mode. Sometimes - depending upon settings - you may need to press the Power button the PC to wake it up from sleep mode.
If you have already tried all this, then please go to the Power settings in Control panel and check all the setups that exist. You may need to change some of them.

Battery status incorrect


This recalibrate's the battery.

Charge the battery completely. Monitor the battery indicator, which is usually found that the bottom of your computer screen, to check if the battery is already fully charged.

Plug off the power adapter and use the laptop until the battery is completely drained. To drain the battery faster, run several programs at once and keep the contrast of your screen to its highest levels. Turn off all power-saving features as well. Turn off sleep mode.

Make sure that the battery is totally drained by waiting for your laptop to shut off or go into sleep mode automatically because of very low battery charge.

Plug the power adapter again and charge the battery again completely. Once this is done, restore the power-saving features and adjust the contract settings of your screen to normal.

Prostart 6 button in sleep mode


Sleep mode is a convenient power-saving feature used on both laptops and desktop computers. This feature powers down hard disks, monitors, wireless devices and any other power-consuming peripherals without turning the unit completely off and necessitating a reboot. Sleep mode can prevent battery drain if using a laptop or mobile device while away from the power supply. This mode is useful when quick access to a computer is needed, but can be irritating if the sleep mode takes a long time to come back from. It is simple to turn sleep mode off, based on the operating system being used.

Go to the "Start" button, then click on "Control Panel." In the control panel screen, click "System and Maintenance," then click on "Power Options." This brings you to the "Select a power plan" page. From the "Select a power plan" page, select the option that says "Change plan settings." This changes the settings on the currently selected plan. Select the "Change advanced power settings" option. Click "Sleep" and then click on "Sleep After" to expand it. If using a laptop or mobile PC, click "On battery" and "Plugged in," then select the "Never" option. This turns off sleep mode for both battery and AC use. If you are using a desktop computer, click "Setting," click the arrow and then click "Never" to turn off sleep mode. Click "OK," then click "Save changes" to save the modification. b> Turning Off Sleep Mode - Mac OS b> Click on the Apple logo at the upper left corner of the screen to open the menu and select the "System Preferences" option. From the "System Preferences" screen, click on "Energy Saver." If you are using a desktop, select "Power Adapter" in the top drop-down menu. In the second drop-down menu, select "Custom." Highlight the "Sleep" tab, then adjust the top slider to the far right, marked "Never." I f you wish the display to stay on, adjust the bottom slider to "Never." Click the red button on the upper left side of the "Energy Saver" screen. If you are using a mobile product or laptop, follow step 2 and select "Battery" from the top drop-down menu. Repeat step 3 to change the settings for battery use. Hope this helps.

Samsung galaxy s2 gti9000 past drained even the phone is in off mode.they consume battery when it's off


If the phone is powered off it may consume a small amount of battery to keep your settings but shouldn't be much. There might be a sleep mode that makes the phone look like it's off but really isn't and that will drain your battery

Something is draining my battery when my van is not being driven


Hi Robert,

I don't know anything specific about this vehicle. However, vehicles made in the 90's onwards that had factory "security" devices fitted often drew significant current when in "sleep mode" - ie: the car not running. This current drain could be 10-20mA. Over time, this will flatten any battery! Typically, 7000 to 8000 hours = 156 days = 5 months.
Modern car electronics draws significantly lower current whilst in sleep mode (say 1-2mA) so the problem essentially "goes away".

Alternatively, it could be gunk and/or corrosion around door light microswitches causing unwanted drain. You could measure the battery current drain and remove the car fuses in turn to determine which circuit is the culprit. Beware - connecting a meter capable of measuring milliamps in series with a car battery takes a bit of knowledge and skill. Do it incorrectly and (a) your meter goes POOFF and/or (b) you may generate a dangerous arc/spark. Ask an auto-electrician for advice.

Hi. I have a HP Compaq 6820S, Intel Pentium T7250, 2 Gb RAM, 160 Gb HDD, i have a problem, Laptop won't charge battery. I let the laptop in sleep mode, around 7 days, when i come back, battery was 0%,...


try a new battery yet? (brand new fresh)
sleep mode. so you want it to run for 7 days in sleep.
ive no idea how long this laptop runs in sleep
and hibernate is longer.
no idea at all.
you do know that the speed features are programmable
right?
including what chips do and do not go to sleep'
like USB ports, WIFI, and all wake on , features. like Ethernet chip.
and more.
why not just turn it off, and let the battery last longer..
this mode sleep kills batteries faster. way faster.
leave it plugged in all the time to the wall pack.
so the battery never drains unless you need to use it, on battery.

Ipod touch battery drains while in sleep mode


batteries drain, even when not in use. in fact, when in sleep mode your ipod is on, and is doing many things. for example, checking email, keeping time, etc.
so the battery drain is normal. to keep it charged i suggest you keep it plugged in. personaly i have it plugged in when not in use. that is one downside of iPods is their battery life.
