Under the extreme left of the tool bar, find the blue apple.
Under that, choose "System Preferences"
Choose "Security"
Click in the circle that says "require password to wake..."

When you installed OSX, you will have created a Username and Password. That will be the password you will use to get past the screensaver, if set, or a blank screen if not.

My LG optimus keeps getting stuck in sleep mode. When I turn it on it seems fine but once it enters sleep mode it won't turn back on. I have to restart the phone to get a picture again. Any tips?


Is it ''sleep'' mode or ''Hibernate'' mode? If ''Hibernate'', then that is the problem. Turn off ''hibernate.'' If it is in fact just ''sleep'' mode, check to see if it is set for ''enter password to exit sleep'' _and_ you don't have a password set up... then either create a password or set it so that it does not require a password upon exiting sleep. Also, you can always resort to resetting everything to ''default'' settings. (This will not effect any data on the phone, and you can take your time setting all the settings ''just right'').

Override Password


You probably have set the settings that requires a password immediately after the screen goes to sleep or when screen saver kicks in.
Goto: System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General... and untick the setting "Require password....." or change the setting to allow for some more time.

Dell laptop computer how do i unlock ruby laptop not a desktop when sgin on it read ruby lock how do i unlock it. rubybryant89@yahoo.com


The computer goes in to lock mode when it goes into hybernation or to sleep after a period of inactivity. By "ruby laptop" I presume you mean there is a button with the name ruby on it? If so, just click on the button and if it is password protected, it will ask you for the password for that user account. If it is not password protected it will go on into the desktop.

I am unable to access the internet from sleep mode Can only get on internet from shut down mode


Three possible causes of sleep mode. first, an extensive screensaver with password lock prevents display. A condition that is observable as a blankscreen also known as sleep mode. Second, a computer power saver settings that shutsdown during idleness. Third, An improper shut down of the computer would have caused a sleep mode to save the system data files.



Restoring the computer to regular functionalioty

First solving predictable sleep mode settings
1. A movement of mouse pointer across the screen should reestablish unprotected password modes
a. password protected sleep mode would display an promp message requiring key code soon after the mouse pointer has changed direction

sloving unpredictable sleep mode settings
1.A computer power saver, screen saver, or splash screen displays prevnting programs acess would require manually powering off the computer system.
a. A manual power back on of the system should restore to program functionality mode

important notes
1. contact expert technical assistance

Not turning back on after sleep mode


I had the same problem when I first bought my Acer Aspire One a few weeks ago. I searched the web for answers, but it didn't really seem like anyone had a solution. However, one guy on a forum or website said something that gave me an idea - he said something like: What's the problem? Just open it up, hit the power button, type your password, and it wakes up.

Well, that didn't seem helpful to me at the time that I read it, but after thinking about it, I had a hunch. I had not set up my netbook to have a password (yet). So I did. And it's been waking up from sleep mode like it should ever since!!!

Hopefully, if you're reading this, setting a password will work for you, too. If you don't know how to set a password, here goes... Start...Control Panel...User Accounts...Change an Account...[Pick your name.account]...then the option to create a password should come up. Let us know if this works for you!
