    I need you to be a little more specific... Tell me exactly what you are trying to do and what you want the PC to do in response.



    Like heres an example "I'm closing my laptop so it will enter sleep mode but the display is staying on"



    I just need a little more specific information and also the brand and model of laptop would be helpful. Thank you.

If it is a newer laptop (meaning you purchased it at any date since January 28th of 2007) then you are running Windows Vista™, most likely the basic or premium versions. The actual version does not matter, but you might be able to agree or identify your operating system from those titles.

When you close the lid of the Laptop, the computer is being told to execute a command that has already been pre-defined by Microsoft to hibernate or go to standby to conserve power. Or when you open the lid it will not resume unless you press the power button.

These are settings in the computer that you can change, you just have to know how to access their context menu in order to do so.

The easiest way I can explain to do so is this:
1: Press the windows key on your keyboard, or click on the windows icon in the bottom left of the screen (the start menu).
2: Type in "Power Options". The computer will quickly find the power settings for your machine.
3: Notice the plan your unit is currently set to. Underneath the plan name, is a blue lettered option called "Change plan settings". Click to change the settings.
4: Choose "Change advanced power settings" from the middle of the screen.

The menu that appears contains the behaviors of your entire system in relationship to your power settings. In particular, if you would like the computer to turn off when you close the lid, expand the menu called "Power buttons and lid" and change the option from "Sleep" to "Shut Down"

You can always return to this menu and select "Restore plan defaults", so don't be too concerned with accidentally configuring your power options incorrectly.

Hope this helps you set-up your laptop the way you like.

Cant get the laptop screen to come up the snooze button light is on


Try holding the power button down for 5 seconds this will fully turn off the laptop - then try switching it back on. Also try removing the battery then switching it back on, hopefully this will clear the fault.
You could also check the keyboard. If you have a faulty keyboard, it maybe that the key that puts the laptop to sleep is faulty. You may need to disconnect the laptop keybaord and use a USB one - if the fault goes away then the fault is with the laptop keyboard.

Hope this helps.

When I push the on button after the oven is in "Snooze" mode, the oven starts cooling down instead of heating up . Then when I push the on button again, the screen comes up and says oven ready.


Pushing the Back touch pad will give Snooze option, push it again and the Oven Off comes up. From there you can leave it off to cool down and clean, or push the bottom right pad to turn on,
