Question about Sunpentown WA-1205E 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Is there a way to set this A/C to power saving mode? My other A/Cs have a power save option -- for example: where when I set the AC to 75 it starts and stops trying to maintain the 75 degree temp. I don't have a manual for this Sunpentown so I'm wondering if there is a way to set it to start and stop periodically.

It is possible. But you have to refer to the user guide. Try searching in Google with model no mfr name.

Prostart 6 button in sleep mode

Sleep mode is a convenient power-saving feature used on both laptops and desktop computers. This feature powers down hard disks, monitors, wireless devices and any other power-consuming peripherals without turning the unit completely off and necessitating a reboot. Sleep mode can prevent battery drain if using a laptop or mobile device while away from the power supply. This mode is useful when quick access to a computer is needed, but can be irritating if the sleep mode takes a long time to come back from. It is simple to turn sleep mode off, based on the operating system being used.

Go to the "Start" button, then click on "Control Panel." In the control panel screen, click "System and Maintenance," then click on "Power Options." This brings you to the "Select a power plan" page. From the "Select a power plan" page, select the option that says "Change plan settings." This changes the settings on the currently selected plan. Select the "Change advanced power settings" option. Click "Sleep" and then click on "Sleep After" to expand it. If using a laptop or mobile PC, click "On battery" and "Plugged in," then select the "Never" option. This turns off sleep mode for both battery and AC use. If you are using a desktop computer, click "Setting," click the arrow and then click "Never" to turn off sleep mode. Click "OK," then click "Save changes" to save the modification. b> Turning Off Sleep Mode - Mac OS b> Click on the Apple logo at the upper left corner of the screen to open the menu and select the "System Preferences" option. From the "System Preferences" screen, click on "Energy Saver." If you are using a desktop, select "Power Adapter" in the top drop-down menu. In the second drop-down menu, select "Custom." Highlight the "Sleep" tab, then adjust the top slider to the far right, marked "Never." I f you wish the display to stay on, adjust the bottom slider to "Never." Click the red button on the upper left side of the "Energy Saver" screen. If you are using a mobile product or laptop, follow step 2 and select "Battery" from the top drop-down menu. Repeat step 3 to change the settings for battery use. Hope this helps.

My Acer 5583 laptop will not turn on

Acer notebooks with the Windows operating system installed give computer users the ability to set power-saving options. For example, with Standby or Sleep mode, the computer will turn off certain battery-consuming features and save all open files in memory. If Hibernate is enabled, after a period of time, the computer will turn itself off after it saves all open files to the hard disk drive. You may save time in troubleshooting by first verifying the settings that control how your notebook powers on and off.

1. Press the "Power" button to turn the computer on and recover from Hibernation or open the lid of the Acer notebook to awaken it from Sleep mode. If your computer does not power up, continue.

2. Click the "Start" button, click "Control Panel," and then click "System and Security."

3. Click "Power Options" and then click "Change plan settings" on the "Select a power plan" page.

4. Click "Change advanced power settings" on the "Change settings for the plan" page.

5. Double-click "Sleep" on the "Advanced settings" tab and then double-click "Sleep after."

6. Click one or both of the "On battery" or "Plugged in" options and then click the arrow.

7. Click "Never" and then double-click "Hibernate after."

8. Click one or both of the "On battery" or "Plugged in" options and then click the arrow.

9. Click "Never" and then double-click "Display."

10. Double-click "Display" and then double-click "Turn off display after."

11. Click one or both of the "On battery" or "Plugged in" options and then click the arrow.

12. Click "Never," click "OK," and then click "Save changes." If you still experience problems, visit the Acer website and check if updated drivers are available for your Acer notebook. The link is listed in References.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

When i apply power to my PC, it goes right into power save mode.

At boot up press F8 and boot in Safe Mode. Once booted then go to Start->Control Panel->Power Options. Here you will be able to set it up correctly to not go into power save mode immediately. Save and reboot - normally this time.

Power saving mode

Prevent the laptop/desktop monitor from going to power saving mode:

  • Click on Start | Control Panel | Power Options.
  • In the Power Option properties window, click on the Power Schemes Tab
  • Set the Turn off Monitor/ Turn off Hard Disks option when on Power (and also Battery for laptop users) to Never.
  • Now click on the Save as... button and assign a name to this power scheme... Let us call it 'Presentation' and then click on OK.
  • That's it congrats!

    Monitor not starting up -

    I think the Power Settings in your Computer needs to be changed. As whenever your computer been IDLE, it goes in a Power Saving Mode.

    Adjust your Power Settings from the Control Panel "Power Options" and set them to "Balanced Power Settings" or as per your requirement. There are lot of options their to mention.

    Hope your problem will be solved.

    Try just using the epson scan utility

    1. Launch Epson Scan by going into your HARD DRIVE, APPLICATIONS, and EPSON SCAN.
    2. If prompted, select your scanner from the list of models and click OK.
    3. In the FILE SAVE SETTINGS window, you can designate the location, name and type of file the scans will be saved as.

    -LOCATION defaults to HD/USERS/(YOUR USER NAME)/PICTURES. Click CHOOSE if you wish to change this.
    -PREFIX determines how the scan will be named. Type any name you like. You can also designate a start number.
    -FILE TYPE dictates what format the scans will be saved in. ie. .JPG, .TIFF, .PDF, or .PICT)
    -For example: if the prefix is "img", the start number is "1", and the format is "JPG", the name of the file saved in
    PICTURES will be "IMG001.JPG"
    4. Click OK once settings are changed as desired.
    5. The EPSON SCAN window will open and begin scanning in FULL AUTO MODE. In FULL AUTO MODE the software makes all the decisions for you (as to what is being scanned, where it is on the flatbed, etc). This is the easiest way to scan.
    6. If you want full control over the scanning process click PAUSE and change FULL AUTO MODE to HOME MODE or PROFESSIONAL MODE. In the latter two modes you can change your scan settings as desired. Click SCAN after you have selected your settings. Click CLOSE once the EPSON SCAN is finished scanning.
    7. When scanning is complete, your images will be saved in the location specified on FILE SAVE SETTINGS, with the prefix and in the format you set.

    "analog power save mode"

    different monitors have different settings. Anyhow, press the menu button on your monitor (hope it is there otherwise some other button must have been assigned this function). Choose recall or auto adjust or factory default from there (whichever of these options you can see). Nothing serious.....
