Go green & use hibernate instead.
Well, actually a lot also depends upon what is the duration of you not using the system between breaks. Hibernate anyways is quicker than a normal boot process. I would highly recommend hibernate.
Sleep - is a combination of stand by and hibernate. Be default most of the newer system will write the memory info into hibernation file & put your system to stand by mode. After certain period say 2-3 hours your system will go into hibernate mode. (these are standard settings & unless you keep coming back in 15-20 mins you should use hibernate & contribute towards environment too)

Why and how does my fitbit flex go into "sleep mode?"


You can enter or leave the "Sleep mode" by tapping the Flex rapidly for 1-2 seconds. You'll feel a vibration and the LEDs will blink. (The blinks will depend on if you are entering or leaving sleep mode.) In this mode, the Fitbit Flex reduces the LED intensity and doesn't give alerts. Afterwards, it will provide some data about your sleep pattern - length, movement, waking up during the night. This can help you determine the quality of your sleep. (Note: it isn't a replacement for consulting a doctor if you always wake up tired.)

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(You can manually enter your sleep and wake times into the app without using "Sleep mode". Then the app will use the movement data from the Flex to determine sleep quality. However, LED lights (primarily blue frequencies) are known to reduce sleep quality so dimming them helps most people sleep better. The alerts will also interrupt your sleep and reduce the quality.)

I have a curtis mp1021uk 1gb & i canr remember how to charge it etc


Just leave it connected to your PC USB port while your PC is On for about 3 hours. Make sure your PC is On and not in sleep mode ( don't leave your PC idle ).If your battery is in a healthy condition it should be fully charged by about 4 hours.

If I leave my netbook alone for a few minutes, it freezes and I have to power down and start up again. Why???


It is likely going into a sleep mode.

You can try updating your BIOS to see if this resolves the problem, otherwise you can disable sleep mode from occuring.

I am going to assume you have Windows OS.

- BIOS drivers will be available from the Asus website.

----

To disable sleep mode:

- Click the battery icon at the bottom right of the screen.
- Select 'More Power Options'
- On either plan, choose 'Change plan settings'.
- Change 'Put Computer to Sleep' to 'Never' for both settings.

Good luck.

My netbook wont boot, i turn it on and i will hear the fan but nothing else, i was using it everything was going well, the batery ran out and it went into sleep mode, i pluged it in and since then i canot...


Leave it plugged in for about 10 minutes. The battery just needs to charge a little more. Then you can come out of sleep mode.

If it is locked in sleep mode. Just hold the power button down to shut off the computer. Let it charge, you can now reboot, and keep charging after about ten minutes.

Computer sleep mode


Turn it off at night or if you leave it for an extended period. It still uses power even in sleep mode, plus the longer Windows runs, the more chance of corruption.
