Generally you can just hit the space bar a couple of times, and that should bring the machine out of Standby mode. However, if it is not Standby but Hibernate mode, you usually need to push the power button to bring it back from Hibernate.

You can adjust these and other power settings by going to the Control Panel, and clicking on the Power Options applet.

The screen on my dell laptop d610 sometimes will not turn on when starting the computer from standby. And never turn on if running off the battery.

Don't you just hate when your trusty laptop slips into a coma and won't resuscitate?

Jen, the good news is this will be easy to correct. First, I recommend you go into your operating systems control panel and configure your power save settings to avoid going into a stand-by state whether plugged in or running on battery unless as a last resort when reaching critical power depletion on battery mode. Shut your computer down when you are finished and leave it at that. If The you want to leave it running unattended, its okay to configure the monitor and hard disks to shut down after a period of inactivity, b4t on laptops, standby mode really doesn't seem to enjoy a reliable and consistent track record on numerous laptop models. Check your systems bios settings on start-up by pr goes into W5nd6ws by pressing the (delete key). Disable any power management settings in the bios then save and reboot.

If you must for some reason, feel compelled to keep using stand-by mode... when the black screen issue rears its ugly head, hold down the 'Fn' key and press 'F4' a couple of times... this worked for me until i got tired of doing it and disabled stabdby.

Hope I was able to FIX-YA! with this post. Please take a minute or five to eloquently detail the range of emotion and feelings you experienced when tempest-tossed, you found safety and calm in the smooth glass-like pools of knowledge here in Geek Harbor.

Wifi turns off in every 10=15 min

In the configuration settings for the adaptor look to see if there is a CAM (Constantly Awake Mode). Also in the System settings in Control Panel for the adaptor there may be a setting for Windows to switch off for power saving.
