There is a long silver button with a black moon on the upper left of my keyboard. When I accidentally hit it, the screen goes black. What is it.....and how do you get your screen back?


Hi,
Depending on how your keyboard is configured, that key is set to do one of two things:
  1. Puts your computer to sleep. (A low power state where almost everything is shut off, including the monitor). You can resume from sleep by hitting any key on the keyboard, hitting the power button on your computer, or clicking the mouse.
  2. Puts your computer into hibernation. (An even lower power state where everything is actually shut off, but a copy of everything open is saved to the hard drive to be opened during start up. It basically allows you to turn off the computer, but be able to turn it back on with program exactly how you left it). You can resume from hibernation only by hitting the power button on your computer.
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! You can leave a testimonial or contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

There is a narrow button with a C or crescent shape on it on my Compaq keyboard near the Escape key. I accidentally pushed it and all went black and I couldn't get anything back. Had to turn off to reboot....


Hi and thank you for using fixya:
That is the sleep button. When you press that key the computer goes into sleep mode. After it fully goes to sleep you can get it back by pressing the same button or pressing the power key
Thank you
Good luck

LCD Flatron 21inch going into power save mode problem


this is not a problem with the monitor, it looks as your computer is not sending any video signals to the monitor thus it goes into saving mode. Take a look at the computer, check the video card. Pull it out then turn it on, turn it off again and place the video card where it should go then turn the PC on again. This should clue the OS to re-configure the video driver. Did you try another monitor ?

Monitor goes to sleep and won't wake up


Yeah, im not sure about how to fix the problem with it shutting down like that, but one option is to go under your control panel and taking off the sleep function, or putting it on a 4 hour timer so that doesnt go into sleep mode anymore. However, the problem is not your monitor but your computer. Id just take the sleep mode off, there is no need to have it on.

Snooze alarm


Like everyone else here I have accidentally hit the NAP button and couldn't turn it off. This morning at 2am I accidentally hit it with my husband in bed. I decided one and for all to guide this out. By flashlight and my cell phone i Googled a solution. I came across many, none of which worked. I resorted to trying methods that were posted for other models of this brand of clocks. The solution that I found that worked was to hold down the back part of the NAP button until the seat the time displayed and the nap light off. By back part of the button I mean hold down the tiny section closest to the rear of the clock. I got this solution from instructions for model RP3721A clock. It took me 17 minutes.That's just 3 minutes before the alarm would have gone off.

When I select sleep or hibernate mode - the monitor stays black...


Hit the keyboard keys. It is better to just turn sleep and hibernate off and just use a screen saver or tun it off.
