I rebuild these systems all the time and I have to tell you I just shut off the hibernation which is what the problem is. Go to power options in the control panel and click the hibernation tab and uncheck the box. That way you save the disk space and the aggravation of trying to wake up the system. Let the computer go into standby if you want but you really need to turn off the hibernation...

HP DC7800 doesn't wake up (and power switch does nothing!)


Bad setting. If you press and hold the power button, the computer will shut off. That will keep you from having to unplug it.

Pressed the sleep button..how do I get it to w"wake-up?"


Is there an actual button on your keyboard that is the sleep button? Or did you put it to sleep within Windows?
If you pressed the sleep button on your keyboard, you should be able to press that button again, and it should wake up. If you pressed it within Windows, then pressing any key should wake it up.
If neither of those works, then sometimes you need to press the power button. Don't hold it down, just press it, and your computer should wake up.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for using FixYa.

My HP w2007 has started clicking to Monitor Going to Sleep and then going blank. I have never known how to wake it up so I have to turn the whole computer off and restart. HELP


Hey there, Normally simply pressing a random key on your keyboard or moving your mouse should wake it up, if it doesn't though I think the easiest way to solve this is to simply turn off the sleep mode after x amount of time.
If you have windows 7, press the start button and type in "power options", go ahead and open power options and there you will be able to set the time it takes before your PC shuts down, and you can also set it to never.


If you still wish to use this feature but just want to be able to it's a bit tricky and it won't even work for all PCs but if the keyboard waking isn't working, then it's probably because your pc does have this feature. When your PC is off, boot it up again and enter the bios by pressing F10 i believe it is for HP. And somewhere you should be able to set which devices are allowed to wake up your computer, all devices are probably disabled now, so go ahead and enable the keyboard to wake up your computer. Now save and exit, and the next time your PC goes to sleep mode you should be able to wake it up by pressing a key on your keyboard.


I hope I was able to assist. If I was, please don't forget to rate this solution.

I put my laptop in the sleep mode as a requirement for using "Magic Jack" and have using the power switch to go out of sleep mode and activate Vista. I read this could cause problems later but don't know...


Hi,

On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop.

It just need an interruption to wake from the sleep mode so its perfectly ok to do so by any key or by the power key....

For any further guidelines give a comment...

I am running a model 1045 on VISTA. The sleep key puts my computer to sleep but what key wakes it up?


Hi there,

Normally when you put your computer to sleep with your keyboard you only have to press a key on the keyboard to wake the computer again.
I normally use my spacebar to wake my pc but any key should work fine.

Kind regards!!!

Vista wakes up on it's own. Never goes to sleep.


Sounds like you've tried all the obvious things. Did you check the BIOS settings and turn off all of the WAKE ON settings in there? Otherwise, it sounds like you might have a third party program which is scheduling without your knowledge (check your start up programs and running processes during normal use). If, when asleep, the machine runs a fan, it may also be waking up for the OS to receive a power or overheat warning message from the BIOS.

Problems with machines not going to sleep when asked are often related to drivers that are not unloading when asked to prepare for the sleep/hibernation process. If you have installed any new hardware (or driver heavy software like specialized encryption or hard drive management stuff) trying uninstalling it and testing the sleep functionality.

Ideas, anyway.
