    Been there, done that! It doesn't do a thing, except blink the half moon symbol at me again. Any other ideas?

    I have since been able to wake it up. I had to remove the battery, unplug it and retry everything. It's been a closet for a year. Thanks for your assistance!!!!

My monitor is a sleep and wont wake up


Hi Mellissa,
I have the same problem at times.
At the top right hand side of your keyborad there may be a half moon button.(THIS IS A SLEEP MODE BUTTON)
Push that button, wait for your computer power light to turn from blue to yellow.
Then lightly touch the power button on your PC, wait a few then tis should fix your issue, I hope.

Where is the sleep button on the VGC-RB52? Is it different from the power button?


It is the same as the power button if your computer is set to sleep when you push power. I was looking too because when you go into the power options in the control panel it shows a button with a half moon as the sleep button, but I don't have that on my keyboard. So I put the question in Vaio help and it said use the power button. I guess some Vaio keyboards have a half moon button, but mine doesn't. I did notice that when I thought I had turned it off using the power button when it got hung up that it did come back up with the move of the mouse. So it really is the power button, as long as it's set that way in the control panel.

How do I get my monitor back on if I accidently press the key in the top left corner (with the half-moon shape on it). What is that key for?


That's the sleep button
(half-moon -> night-time -> sleep).
It puts the PC into standby mode. Pressing the power button should bring it back to life.

What does the half moon lit up mean, No screen.


The half moon usually means the computer is in SLEEP MODE. Normally, pressing the spacebar will wake the computer up but I have noticed that sometimes, the computer can get "stuck" in sleep mode. If that is the case, you can hold the power button down (until the power turns off and the moon disappears). Wait a few seconds then hit the power button again to turn the laptop back on.

Curious - What is the moon shaped key all about


this button puts the computer into sleep mode.

FROM WIKIPEDIA-

Sleep mode can go by many different names, including Stand By (Microsoft Windows 95-Server 2003), Sleep (Mac OS 8)-(Mac OS X) / (Windows Vista,Windows Server 2008), and Suspend (Linux). When placed in this Sleep mode, aside from the RAM which is required to restore the machine's state, the computer attempts to cut power to all unneeded parts of the machine. Because of the large power savings, most laptops automatically enter this mode when the computer is running on batteries and the lid is closed.
Though Sleep and Hibernate are generally thought as two separate functions, modern Macintoshes, Windows Vista (termed Hybrid Sleep), and some specially configured Linux machines also feature a variation of Sleep mode that incorporates the strengths of Hibernate. The RAM is copied to the hard drive before sleep mode is initiated, preserving the RAM contents in the event of a power loss.
ACPI is the current standard for power management, superseding APM and providing the backbone for sleep and hibernation on modern computers. Sleep mode corresponds to ACPI mode S3. When a non-ACPI device is plugged in, Windows will sometimes disable stand-by functionality for the whole operating system. Without ACPI functionality, as seen on older hardware, sleep mode is usually restricted to turning off the monitor and spinning down the hard drive.
