Lenovo idea pad 300 won't turn on. Red power light blinks 3times then switches off. Rebooting doesn't work. Tried different adapter. Power on Lenovo screen appears for 5 seconds then goes black.


Sometimes they 'crash' in sleep mode. Try hold the power button down for 10 seconds. This should make it reset. After the 10 seconds, release the power button. Then press it again to turn it on normally.

My dell Studio laptop takes too long to wake from sleep mode and the monitor just flickers when i try to switch on


If you use Windows 7, u might have hybrid sleep activated. This is similar to hibernate. When u choose SLEEP, your computer goes to hibernate. Sometimes this hibernate just hangs. You have to reboot computer.
Try pressing the power button for several seconds (10-15). It should power off the laptop.
If not, unplug the charger and remove the battery for a few minutes. Then try to start it up again.

I opened my mac and pressed the power on button and nothing.


You're most likely trapped in sleep mode. This can happen when the mac runs out of power in sleep mode.
Simply hold the power button down for 10 seconds, then press again to boot up as normal.

I am unable to wake up my netbook from sleep... pressing the power button or anything else on the keyboard seems to do nothing.


Try having it plugged in and press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds. If it is stuck in sleep mode this may force it to shutdown and then it will hopefully start up next time you press the power button.

Delay in Monitor display once the system goes in sleep mode


Instead of sleep mode, tyr hibernate. It is generally faster except the whole computer shuts down. When you power back up, you're exactly where you were. Mine takes about 30 seconds.

Sleep mode


If u use Windows OS go in control panel - performance and maintenance - power options, and u'll find there the settings for shut down/stand by/hibernate ...etc

U probably don't have to press the ON button, but the sleep button to come up from that state (probably Fn buton and sleep button (it has to have a pictogram on it ....))
