Sony Vaio with Vista

I bought a Sony Vaio (model PCG-7V2L) with Windows Vista in August. The power settings have never worked right. The screensaver comes on, but the display never shuts off or the computer never goes to sleep on it's supposed to (no matter what power settings I use, or how I set the times). It also never goes to sleep when I close the lid, even though I have it set that way.

Thank you!

    Thank you! I do have everything set up so that it should go to sleep when I close the lid. It's also set up to shut off the display after 10 minutes & go to sleep after an hour, but it never does either. I will try to figure out what program is running & stopping it from sleeping...

A program that is stopping your computer from being "idle" will stop the computer from going into standby. An antivirus program doing a check in the background, or a backup utility or another background program could do this. Try to terminate the various running applications and see if the problem goes away, then you'll know which program was the offending one.

As for the lid, just doublecheck - go to control panel->power options->advanced and the dropdown that says "When I close the lid of my portable computer" should read "Stand By"

Have sony vaio pcg-7v2l but no drivers.


You are getting the model from the unit's bottom which is incorrect
Search around the lid or open <system information> window from the start menu - accessories - system tools OR Run - type msinfo32 and press enter
On the right side of system information you will find system model
Then go to esupport.sony.com and enter the model vgn... or vpc... or vgc... something you found before. If it doesnt find it there its because the model is foreign and you need to go to the sony support page from the country of purchase
