    I have the same problem except mine is not related to Standby Mode at all, it's related to what happens when the lid of the laptop is closed. When the lid is closed, the laptop does the same thing as before. The power light is on, the wireless light is on, and the numlock key is on, however, the PC will not come out of this "standby mode". The setting in Power configuration is set to do nothing when the lid is closed.



    I attempted to run a power configuration reg file that can correct many problems with power configuration options not being changable and it did not resolve the problem.

Your Computer enters Stand-By mode when untouched for more than one hour. This appears to be NOT A PROBLEM but the SETTINGS need be adjusted. Follow these SIMPLE steps to resolve it: -

(1) Goto Control Panel>Power Options>Power Schemes,
(2) Set the System standby to Never.
(3) Click Apply.
(4) Click OK.

Your Problem finished.

First advice would have been to remove battery, but since you did that, I'd say that your laptop is stuck in hybrid-sleep, or the old hibernate. Try pressing the power button for 10-15 seconds, the laptop should go off, then try presing the power button again, for normal boot.

Hi,
It seems that your windows has gone bad. I think you need to reformat your laptop. I hope you save all your file in other partitions and not in windows partition. You can use the recovery disk provided by Compaq to reformat your laptop or you can get one from them or any store nearby. Hope this will help.
Good luck ;)

According to Toshiba Support the remedy is to connect the laptop to the ac adaptor and plug in to wall outlet. Then turn it on and leave it on for 24 hours while the rtc battery charges.

Power meter says the battery is charged to 95% but when I un plug it the screen goes blank and it needs to be rebooted


Ok, just because the battery is 95% charged doesn't mean that it has 95% of the charge it's supposed to have. When a battery ages it holds less and less of a charge so it can have just a tiny bit of power and show as 95%. You can check the health of the battery on this Dell by removing the battery, pressing and holding the status button. The more lights that light the worse the battery is. Dell recommends a new one if 5 or more light.

Also, check the battery charge by just pressing without holding. This time the MORE lights the better. It may be that powermeter is lying.

Acer aspire one, won't wake up from sleep mode, screen blank


I'm having the same problem, but I don't want to have to turn off my computer EVERY time it does this. (I have not been able to shut down the laptop normally because it goes into sleep every time.) I've heard that after 3 hours it builds up an eletrical charge and you have to take the battery out, but I havn't had it on for 3 hours at a time.

Eee pc won't turn on (I think have already posted this,not sure)


Sounds like a classic case of hardware failure!!!!!!! possibly your motherboard, start by removing the battery, hard drive and optical drive.
disconnect the laptop monitor and connect the laptop to an external monitor.
remove the memory modules clean the brass contacts with a eraser and place back in the machine 1 at a time to check to see if they work, remember to plug in the AC power suppy, if you see the post screen then its a memory issue and you can then reconnect your laptop monitor to see if it lights up, if everything works but the monitor then its the inverter or backlight that has blown and is easily repairable saving you money on a brand new screen
