Re: sleep mode

Depends how it is set-up. If it is just in standby then simply moving the mouse or pushing a key should work. If it is in hibernate, then you have to push the power button for it to power back on.

Won't go into sleep mode

Which operating system ?

Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work.

This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation.

Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money!

Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow.

The Shut Down menu appears.

Point at "Sleep" and click on this option.

Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode.

Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse.

There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on.

All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode.

Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time.

Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security."

Click "Power Options."

A menu opens.

Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode.

If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity

Your Computer in sleep mode

First, save all of your work. Information in computer memory is not saved while your computer is on standby.

From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel, then Power Management.

Click Standby Beside When I Push the Power Button.

Push the Power button.

Automatically Putting Your Computer on Standby

Save all work before leaving your computer.

From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.

Double-click Power Management.

Set the times that you want your system to go on standby, to shut off the monitor and to shut off the hard disks.

Click OK. Your computer will go on standby according to the schedule you have entered.

Putting Your Computer in Hibernation

From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.

Double-click Power Settings.

Click on the Advanced tab.

At the When I Push the Power Button On My Computer screen, click Hibernate.

Click the Power button.

Hope this helps.

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

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....

If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.

Sleep Mode Lockup on Dell Inspirion 530 w/ Vista

Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.

As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.

Hope this helps.

Laptop goes into permanent sleep mode, etc

If you can restart it and it starts up fine, then I would go into the power settings and disable sleep mode. Every computer is different on how to wake a sleeping computer, so you could read through your manuals and find out for yours, but I just disable sleep mode on all computers so i dont have to hassle with it.
