Screen distortion when coming back from idle/sleep mode
After my computer sits for a while, of course it goes to the screen saver and then to sleep mode. When I turn the computer back on from sleep mode, the screen is scrambled and distorted. I have to shut the computer down totally in order for the display to show correctly. Any ideas how to solve this???

It might be setup to go into sleep mode if it is left idle for a certain period of time. To change the settings click the following(I am assuming you have windows vista or windows 7): Start,Control Panel,Power options,Choose when the computer goes to sleep(look on the left side),Then adjust the settings to what you wish by clicking the black arrow there. Also check the "choose when to turn off the screen" in the same spot you clicked Choose when the computer goes to sleep.
u must remove screen saver and go in screen saver property than go on the power there are some setting u must disable the power option and hdd sleep mode too be disable good luck enjoy vote for my comment
Dear! take display properties use tab ans select screen saver then click on power and use tab again select hibernate if it is enable check again it and disable now. After that your computer will not go in sleep or hibernate mode.
If the screen is breaking up into multiple screens, the video resolution isn't set correctly. Change the video properties back to the native resolution.
Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen. Click on Properties at the bottom. Now click on the Settings tab. The Screen Resolution slider should be all the way to the right, close to -> More. The Colors should be set to the highest setting.
When you close the lid, you may have your laptop set to Sleep Mode, check that. You may also have your screen saver set to Blank, and no screen saver has been chosen.
(1.Screen Saver: Right-click on empty area of desktop>Properties>Screen Saver.
2.Sleep Mode: Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>Power Options>Power Buttons>When I press the sleep button on my computer>Then choose what you want it to do)
If none of this helps, I suggest you have a problem that HP needs to repair. Since you bought this dv9700t last July, would I be correct in assuming it's still under warranty?
CHECK YOUR POWER SETTINGS
1. Right Click your desktop and click properties
2. On properties window click the screen saver tab. Beneath it, click the power button.
3. On the Power Schemes, you can either select the Home/Office Desk or Always On option
4. For the other options below, select NEVER for all of them and click apply.
5. go to the Hibernate Tab and take off hibernate and also click the apply button
Restart your PC and watch out if the problem still persists.
if it dos then you need to download a new Power Management driver or ACPI from HP's website.
If it comes to this pls let us know so we can assist.
it sounds like your most likely having trouble with the hibernate feature try this
start>>control panel>>power options>> click on the hibernate tab un check enable hibernate mode
this should fix your issue
I've had spotty luck with Windows and sleep or hibernate modes. I would suggest just disabling sleep/hibernate mode. The options can be found under the control panel under power options. While turning off the sleep mode won't help your battery life, if you ask me, it beats having to power off the laptop by pulling the battery out. If you don't want to turn it off, you can try adjusting the amount of time it lets pass before it goes to slee.
