Check out your power settings, its probably set to go to standby mode after a set time.

Start - Control panel - power settings.

Elonex tv keeps going onto standby, take about 10-15 goes to work.


Sounds like you may have some capacitors going bad. If it is a high end TV it may pay you to take it to a repair shop.

Compaq F572US won't start (led turns on, but nothing happens)


I have been having the same problem. At first I thought that the motherboard was fried and the laptop was a paper weight, but I kept it plugged in and kept pressing the power button several times over the days. It would always seem to start (screen remained off/black) and then it would just go off again in seconds. But persevarence has paid off, finally almost after a week it started up like normal and started working again as normal. I then had the same episode repeat a few weeks later, the computer was useless for a few days and again started up as I kept pressing the power button several times a day.

I believe the problem is with the standby mode. Each time the problem happened, it seems like the computer was going into standby mode and the power button was pressed again before it could competely go into standby or the button was pressed again while it was coming out of standby.

To sum it up, nothing is wrong with the cimputer components, there is some problem with the standby routine. Keep pressing the power button and hopefully you can get lucky in getting the computer to start again. Long term, I am thinking about checking whether there was a new flash update that came out that could fix this problem. I purchased the laptop compaq F72US in 2008 and never updated anything. Also worth noting that I called HP and they didn't stand behind their product.

Standby mode is not working..


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, would suggest going into the CMOS/BIOS setup and restoring all configurations/settings back to default. Should this be not corrective, try verifying settings inside the Properties box of the Power Options inside Control Panel.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Computer does not stay in hibernation or standby mode


That happen because on the stand by or hibernate setting the time was setting in 5 minutes.
Go to Control Panel >> Display >> Screen Saver >> Power

And set the time right there as your preferences.

My internet won't work on my new laptop.


First turn off you laptop. Second, go to your comcast cable modem unplug it from the wall and wait about 3mins. Now plug the comcast modem back it and wait for all the lights to come back (will take about 2-3mins). Now plug the yellow ethernet cable into your laptop if its not already and turn your laptop on. You should now have internet.

Also if you using a Comcast Surf Board modem be mindful of the standby button on top of the modem. You can tell your in standby mode if the standby light (bottom light) is amber. If it is press the standby button once to get out of standby mode.

hope that helps

I'm still not sure about your question. Let me quess that by saying power/standy light goes to red...that mean your computer
is going into standby mode.!!!! So do it this way..on the left or right top corner of your notebook not the monitor, you should be having a small pin pointing up..I think that pin is use when you close the lid of your Laptop and it make your laptop goes into standby mode.When I mean goes into standby(sleep mode) the first think you can notice that your monitor light will be off and you can still see a very light image.So maybe this pin is stuck try to push it down for several times..
best of luck, takecare
