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.

My Toshiba Satellite S75D-A7272 laptop has always had a problem with getting it out of sleep mode. Is there a fix for this?


Sleep or standby mode should allow your computer to conserve energy yet respond quickly to power back on when you need it. Most Toshiba laptops should exit sleep mode if you press a key on the keyboard or use the trackpad mouse. If the lid was closed, opening it should also wake up the computer. If none of these methods work to bring the computer out of sleep mode, you may have a power issue or software glitch. Causes Insufficient power can cause this problem, so try plugging in your Toshiba laptop before attempting to wake it from sleep mode. If this does not immediately fix the issue, your problem is more likely a software issue. If your laptop was shut down incorrectly prior to the sleep mode incident, it may be stuck on a blank screen that makes it appear to be in sleep mode when it actually is trying to start up.
Indications Press the power button for a few seconds to see if your computer will wake up. If it does, the laptop was not truly stuck in sleep mode, but rather went into hibernation mode. If your laptop is truly stuck in sleep mode, you may be able to force a shutdown by holding down the power button, but when you power back up it will move right back into sleep mode. In some cases, the power button may not shut down the computer from this mode at all.
Solution The best way to solve your Toshiba's problem is to completely remove all power from the laptop to ensure a fresh restart. Close the laptop's lid, turn over the unit and remove the battery. Also remove the power adapter cord from both the laptop and the wall socket. Open the laptop lid and press and hold the power button for approximately 20 seconds. This will drain any stored power in the backup battery. Wait a few seconds, then put the battery back in, plug in the laptop and press the power button to turn on the computer. It may start up with an error screen; in this case, select the option to start your computer normally. If the error recurs, start the computer in "Safe Mode" to see if a program running on your computer outside of the basic Windows operating system is causing the problem.
Further Help Sometimes this issue also requires holding down a specific key, such as "F8," when you restart. If the basic power drain and restart process doesn't work, you can use Toshiba's support website to look up further information for your specific model. Just click the "Product support" tab and enter your laptop's model information, then read through the support bulletins listed for your particular Toshiba model. Toshiba also maintains a support hotline at Call us : +1 850-610-1013 https://www.instantprintersupport.com/toshiba-printer-support

How to open hp laptop in sleep mode


This is a common problem on HP computers but also has many causes. If your laptop is not coming back on after being put into sleep mode, it could be a software issue among a few other things. If your computer has a hibernation mode I would suggest using it to get around the sleep mode issue. This mode will save everything the way it is and shut down completely. When you restart the computer it will open up just as you left it. Just like sleep mode except with a restart. This does not solve the sleep mode problem but easily provides a power saving alternative to it.

Sleep vs Shut down


It depends on how long computer is being used in a day.
for general use
you can shutdown your computer once in 2 days but i highly recommend not to put in sleep mode and betting putting in hibernate mode instead of sleep mode.
note: most of simple issues are resolved by restarting PC so you can guess now how important is to shut down computer.

Good luck,
