Can't get my iPad to turn on! Have tried pressing the button for a long time, still not turning. What else should I do to get started?


In order (stop if one works):
1. Recharge at least an hour from power adaptor rather than USB computer lead.
2. Reset by holding down Sleep/Wake button on top right of tablet while at the same time pressing down home button. Keep both depressed 15 seconds. If slider appears or screen dims, keep pressing till Apple appears.
3. Restart (display not working) by pressing and holding Sleep/Wake button till power off slider appears. Drag slider to right. Wait 2 minutes. Press and hold Sleep/wake button till Apple appears.
4. Recovery Mode. With device powered down, hold sleep/wake button down and drag slider to off position. Then plug USB into a computer (do not have usb cable connected to iPad yet) running latest version of iTunes. Hold down Home button while plugging USB cable into iPad. Keep Home button down until Connect to iTunes appears. If does not appear, start Recovery Mode procedure again. When Lightning cable, arrow, and iTunes appears, release Home. Click OK to restore to factory defaults (erases data). Restore data from earlier backup. (Summary of method from Phone Cruncher site.)

How do I stop my tv from going into sleep mode, it keeps powering down


You have a Short on your Power supply or Vertical or Horizontal boards that may be faulty. The TV puts itself into self protection mode to prevent any further damage. Let a Pro. look at the Set.

My computer hp s3700f keeps going black or sleep. Mode


Hello

You can prevent the computer from going into sleep or hibernation mode by going to the CONTROL PANEL - POWER SETTINGS.

Once here, change the settings to High Performance.

You can also go into advanced properties and manually change all of the settings - including when the hard drives go to sleep (I set this to NEVER), when the monitor will go to sleep (again, I set to never).

My fax machine keeps going into sleep mode. How can I prevent this from happening?


you can't. you can only change the length of time before it enters sleep mode. (00-99 min). if you want to change, "menu/set" "1" "8" then enter the length in minutes from the dail pad, hit "menu/set" then "stop/exit".

My old (vintage 2000) CRT monitor (Dell) occasionally goes into sleep mode and nothing I do will "wake it up".


You could try turning it off and back on again when it does that, or pressing a few of the buttons on it.

If you would like to prevent it from going into sleep in the first place, you could try changing the settings in the control panel, turning off the monitor before you leave (to prevent it having a chance to go to sleep mode), or just shut down your whole computer before you leave. That is probably the best option, because it is a lot healthier for your computer to just have your computer shut off instead of leaving it on all the time. It may also save some money on your power bill, depending on how many things you have with it and how much power it actually uses.

I have a Dell Optiplex 780 and when I am logged in and walk away for 15 or more minutes it will go to sleep, I will then come back wake it up, log in and the screen will go black and I cannot get in unless...


This problem is ongoing because you have it configured to sleep turn the sleep mode off. What it is doing is attempting to load drivers again and not saving to cache when in sleep mode you may have not enough storage allotted for the sleep mode to save information go and increase the storage memory to store the data so that when it sleeps it can store the data and wake up with your screen as it was when you left it.
Personally I do not use sleep mode never have, never will. It is nothing but a problem for me anyway. I always keep my machines running with the exception of a lap top. So my suggestion is turn sleep mode off. I also log out and then log back in same principal really. Or just close the machine totally power it down. Sleep mode was a wonderful concept along with shutting down hard discs etc. However you will often times be more into a hassle than just leaving it on or shutting it down. Less work for a computer is better just my humble opinion.
Last but not least, my last resort would be to re-install operating system again once I start getting to many things going wrong with my machines I do them over solving all sorts of problems that are behind the scenes that take hours sometimes to repair individually. This would be after you retrieve your lost files from the drive. John

I am unable to access the internet from sleep mode Can only get on internet from shut down mode


Three possible causes of sleep mode. first, an extensive screensaver with password lock prevents display. A condition that is observable as a blankscreen also known as sleep mode. Second, a computer power saver settings that shutsdown during idleness. Third, An improper shut down of the computer would have caused a sleep mode to save the system data files.



Restoring the computer to regular functionalioty

First solving predictable sleep mode settings
1. A movement of mouse pointer across the screen should reestablish unprotected password modes
a. password protected sleep mode would display an promp message requiring key code soon after the mouse pointer has changed direction

sloving unpredictable sleep mode settings
1.A computer power saver, screen saver, or splash screen displays prevnting programs acess would require manually powering off the computer system.
a. A manual power back on of the system should restore to program functionality mode

important notes
1. contact expert technical assistance

When I put my mac in sleep mode and restart it I get a message that says I have not put my lacie hard drive away right. How do you do that.


The message you are getting is refering to removing the Lacie before disconnecting it.

Just as you eject a drive before unplugging the cables to prevent corruption you must do the same before going to sleep as turning off the power to your USB ports(which happens in sleep mode) is no different than unplugging the drive without ejecting the drive when the computer is running.

If your Mac is set to go to sleep and save power when it is not in use then you should only plug your Lacie in when you are using it and should eject the Lacie before going to Sleep.

Failure to do so will eventually result in a loss of data.

If you have already lost data from a Mac formatted Lacie drive then you should refer to the below link for assistance in recovering your files, if not simply follow the above steps and you should not have any problems as a result of your Mac going to Sleep.

Computer not sleeping in sleep mode.


One possibility is if you have an optical/laser mouse that is on a relective surface and the mouse light is reflecting and triggering the computer to think that there is activity.

More than likely, your network card is keeping your computer from staying in sleep mode as any internet data activity is taking the computer out of sleep mode making the computer think there is activity.

There is an option in the Network Adapter properties that says to "Allow this device to wake up your computer"

Go to Control Panel and click Classic View on the left hand side

Double Click the Network and Sharing Centre Icon.

On the left hand side of the window that opens, click Manage Network Connections.

Right Click on the connected Network Connection. It is probably the Local Area Connection. Right click on it and choose Properties

A new box will open up. Click the Configure button under the Connect Using: box

Click the last tab at the top that says Power Management.

Under the Power Management tab click the square box that is beside: Allow this Device to Wake the Computer to take the checkmark out of the box. Then Click OK at the botton and close all the windows.

Let the computer go into Sleep mode and see if the computer still comes out of sleep mode on its own.

Let me know if this worked for you,

Sleep Mode Lockup on Dell Inspirion 530 w/ Vista


Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.

As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.

Hope this helps.
