IME, standby leaves the power button flashing because the board is still powered to keep memory alive, so it shouldn't have appeared off before. It would however be quiet because the voltage required is normally not enough to warrant use of cooling fans... or that area of the board is not powered.

Try starting in safe mode as Administrator, uninstalling all keyboard drivers, rebooting to CMOS/BIOS/Startup and looking through the areas, changing nothing but:

  1. On-board Devices - Enable onboard USB keyboard (if it is a USB keyboard)
  2. Power Settings - Wake on Keyboard (shut off wake on mouse if present and you have an optical [laser] mouse, as it is too sensitive and might not allow you to completely go into standby)
And taking notes on what you changed JIC.

Remember, don't change anything in this area unless you know it is correct. If you accidentally change something, it is best to exit out without saving and start again with a reboot. Then when you're sure, F10 to save and exit, select Yes [Y and then Enter] and boot to normal windows.

Then when you reboot, drivers should install or you should be prompted for the driver disc

Very possible standby is not enabling completely or "Windows is hanging" on standby. Check Windows Updates for that or reenact the problem, note the time and check event viewer for errors. Event viewer is accessed by Administrative Tools or by typing eventvwr in the Run dialog box. Red Xs will be errors. Click on System or Application in the left column and search the right column for a red X (You'll see a lot of them most likely). Match the time the error occurred and then find the Event column on the toolbar, which will show the Product ID. Product ID is the ID of the component/program. Search google for the description you see when you double click (or right click > select properties) the Event in the right hand column.

    Sorry...

    ... Also try and look primarily for support.microsoft.com results in your searches and if none found, be cautious of what site it is, for the link/url you are thinking about clinking.You can also search Microsoft's support site first. Include the Event/Product ID and as short as description as you can in the search field. Like:

    windows hangs standby "your_windows_version" Product/Event_ID
    or
    standby "your_windows_version" product/event_ID

Keyboard locks on startup, mouse pad works, FN & ECS (for Standby) works


your comp is infected for sure.i`ve seen many cases where my customer`s comp is infected and they face the same problem.
make sure you have ethernet cable plugged in to your laptop so we can use safe mode with networking. shutdown your computer.on top of the keyboard you have F8 key.the moment you`ll press the power button to turn on the computer start tapping F8. advance boot up options will appear. select safe mode with networking
try restoring your comp to a previous time when it was working. if it doesn`t work don`t worry just follow the steps below.In any case you have to clean virus out of your computer.
download,install and run this software.after running the scan clean all the infections and restart your comp.

I can not get my Saitek Eclipse Keyboard to get my comp out of Stanby


  1. Open shortcutcold.gifPower Options in Control Panel.
  2. On the Advanced tab, under When I press the power button on my computer, click Standby. If you are using a portable computer, click Standby under When I close the lid of my portable computer.
  3. Click OK or Apply, and then turn off the power or close the lid of your portable computer.
note.gif Notes
  • To open Power Options, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
  • You can also put your computer on standby by clicking Start and then clicking Shut Down. In the What do you want the computer to do drop-down list, click Stand by.
  • You might want to save your work before putting your computer on standby. While the computer is on standby, information in computer memory is not saved on your hard disk. If there is an interruption in power, information in memory is lost.
  • To put your computer on standby, you must have a computer that is set up by the manufacturer to support this option.
  • Using Power Options in Control Panel, you can adjust any power management option that your computer's unique hardware configuration supports. Because these options may vary widely from computer to computer, the options described may differ from what you see. Power Options automatically detects what is available on your computer and shows you only the options that you can control.
