Question about Dell Inspiron 700M Notebook

Laptop won't turn back on from standby mode

Whenever I try to turn my laptop back on from standby mode by pressing on the power button quickly or tapping the mouse area, it doesn't respond. (The Wifi light, power, and battery light stay on but all the other icons are off). So what I end up having to do is to turn it off completely and then I turn it back on. This is a problem that I've only had recently. I used to be able to just click the mouse to get it out of standby. Is there's somthing wrong with my computer or is it me?

    I looked in my list of add/remove programs but couldn't find it. Where else could it be?

    I have another solution for you - upgrade your BIOS.
    Download the flash utility here
    Here <- is the download site for the newest version of the BIOS.

    Forget the Dell Quickset, just do the things I said about the BIOS.

    You downloaded, installed and ran the flash utility? This one..Remember to NOT choose the Dell Download Manger. Pick "Use your internet browser".

    If this is not working, I dont think I can help you any further.

Laptop Fan and Power Indicator won't turn off.


Are you sure you are turning it off completely. Sounds like you have it sleeping or hibernating. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds or so, it should power off completely.

Standby mode is not working..


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, would suggest going into the CMOS/BIOS setup and restoring all configurations/settings back to default. Should this be not corrective, try verifying settings inside the Properties box of the Power Options inside Control Panel.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

That happen because on the stand by or hibernate setting the time was setting in 5 minutes.

And set the time right there as your preferences.

Completely remove the battery and unplug the power cord for a few minutes. Reinsert battery and power up. You can also hit F8 when starting and see if you can boot into safe mode.
