Hi

I do not know why you need the automatic power on for your server. Server should be on all the time 24/7 .
If it is a PC , then you should know that even though shutdown , they are still on (you can see a light) .
This means you can use magic bullet to wake it up (wake up on lan).
Read up on magic bullet.

Good luck,
David

Sleep button won't activate


I'll assume you're referring to the Sleep option accessed through the shutdown menu in Windows. My bet is you'll have to make a change to your power plan in the Power Options section of the Control Panel. You should see a few pre-configured power management options like "Power Saver" and "High Performance." To the left of these options should be a sidebar containing more specific and direct links to changing how your computer behaves and what options are available.

If you cannot resolve your problem through using the Power Options under the Windows Control Panel, I suggest you enter your BIOS setup (you'll have to restart your PC), and press the right arrow key until you're on the last page of BIOS setup. Once there, press the down arrow key until the option to load "default settings" is highlighted, and then press enter. Then highlight the option to exit saving changes and press enter, allow the computer to boot normally into the Windows desktop, and check the sleep option again. You may have to select the default BIOS settings before making changes in the Control Panel, but I would recommend trying the Control Panel first.

I want to disable the system password on my dell computer


I assume that you have the password? Restart your computer. As soon as you see the dell screen, hit the f2 key. This will take you into setup. Look through the different menus and you will find the password options somewhere. You should be able to disable it there.

Computer wont reboot can you help me fix it


possible cause is that Windows XP was installed with the wrong power management hardware abstraction layer (HAL). Verify that power management is enabled in the BIOS. Open the Power Options applet from the Control Panel, click the APM tab, and turn on Enable Advanced Power Management support. If you don't see this option, the system is likely configured with the ACPI HAL and your problem lies elsewhere.
You can also reinstall Windows XP and manually select the ACPI HAL during installation to overcome potential power management issues with hardware (such as video cards) that does not support APM.

Disable Power Management on Windows 7 or Vista If you are using a desktop computer, chances are that you don’t want the computer to go to sleep automatically. This is even more the case if you are running Windows 7 or Vista in a virtual machine for testing purposes.
Disabling Power Management in Windows 7
Start by clicking on the power icon, and open up the More power options:

Disabling power management is simple and easy. First go to the start menu and click on the Control Panel.
Click on the System and Maintenance link:

Configuring Power Settings Using Power Options in Control Panel, you can adjust any power management option that your computer's unique hardware configuration supports. Because these options may vary widely from computer to computer, the options described may differ from what you see. Power Options automatically detects what is available on your computer and shows you only the options that you can control. To configure your power settings:
1.
Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options.
2.
Or, if you see the little battery indicator on your task bar, right-click it and then click Adjust Power Properties
I would put it on always on

Windows will not turn computer off. I have unpluged every thing and all fans but the hard drive. I get 0.01 dcv when the computer is running and the same when I try to have windows turn the computer off....


Hi,

This usually happens if Windows is having trouble closing a program. The easiest way to avoid the problem is to close all programs before you close Windows.

If that does not help, you need to track down which program is causing the problem.

If you are running Windows 95, remove all shortcuts from your StartUp folder.

If you are working with 98/ME/XP, uncheck all the programs listed in StartUp in the System Configuration Utility (you get to the utility by opening Start/Run and typing "msconfig" without the quotes in the Run box and then clicking on OK).

Shut down the PC. Reboot. Shut down again.

Then add one program back, shut down, reboot and shut down again.

If Windows shuts down as it should, add a program back to StartUp and repeat the shutdown, reboot, shutdown routine. Do that until you have pinpointed the errant program and reinstall it. If you are running a screen saver, consider it also to be a prime suspect.

Your Advanced Power Management, or APM, utility has decided to take leave of its senses.

Disable it, both in your BIOS file and in Windows.

That little sound riff that accompanies the shutdown is hitting a sour note.

Go to Control Panel and click on the Sounds icon to open the Property dialog box.

Scroll down in the Events box until you see Exit Windows. Change the sound settings to None.

Your TEMP folders are bulging at the seams.

If the C:\Windows\TEMP folder gets overloaded, all sorts of bizarre events can ensue. Clean it out. While you are at it, clean out your Temporary Internet Files folder as well.

Updating XP with the latest Service Pack may also cure the shutdown failure.

However, it is also possible that Advanced Power Management, or APM, is getting in the way of the shutdown routine.

APM may not be enabled in your XP configurations, but it may be turned on in your BIOS, a memory-resident program that controls how your PC sets itself up.

Microsoft recommends that you go to the Control Panel, click on “Performance and Maintenance,” and choose Power Options.

Click on the APM tab and click on Enable Advanced Power Management Support.

Personally, I don’t like automatic power management on desktops because it can cause all sorts of bizarre behavior. I would leave Advanced Power Management disabled in Windows and turn it off in the BIOS.

Consult your PCs manual to determine how to enter BIOS’ Setup file. Sometimes, as the PC boots, you can see a message on the screen that tells you which key to press to enter Setup. Press it before the screen welcoming you to Windows appears.

Once in Setup, look through the various sections until you find the option for controlling power management. Choose to turn it off.

For guidance on other XP shutdown problems, consult article 308029 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Use the article number as a search term at the support site below. Good information is also available at the aumha.org site.

Upgraded mem.now mon pc dont shut off fan con to run


Computer doesn’t power down when users shut down
In some cases, Windows XP’s Setup program can misidentify the power management scheme in a computer’s BIOS as Advanced Power Management (APM) instead of Advanced Configuration Power Interface (ACPI). When this happens, users will notice that the computer no longer automatically powers down when they shut down Windows XP. Instead, they’ll see the message It Is Now Safe To Turn Off Your Computer and be forced to manually press the power button to turn off the computer.

You can verify this problem by checking the power management configuration in two places—Device Manager and the Control Panel. To quickly access Device Manager, select Start | Run, type Devmgmt.msc in the Open text box, and click OK. When you see the Device Manager window, locate and open the System Devices item. If Setup identified the system as having an APM-compliant BIOS, it will be listed as a Standard PC in the System Devices tree. (If it were identified as having an ACPI-compliant BIOS, you would see it listed here as a Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System.)

To check the power management configuration in the Control Panel, open the Control Panel from the Start menu. If the system is using Category View, select Performance And Maintenance and then click the Power Options icon. If the system is using Classic View, just click the Power Options icon. If Setup identified the system as having an APM-compliant BIOS, you’ll see an APM tab in the Power Options Properties dialog box. (If the system were identified as having an ACPI-compliant BIOS, you wouldn’t see an APM tab.)

You may be able to fix this problem with a BIOS update. To begin, check with the computer manufacturer’s Web site to see if it’s providing the latest BIOS update. If you’re troubleshooting an off-brand computer, you may be on your own as far as tracking down the BIOS update. Here’s how.

Once you obtain and install the BIOS update according to the manufacturer’s instructions, you must perform what I call a Refresh Installation, in which you reinstall Windows XP on top of an existing Windows XP installation. You must perform this reinstall operation because the power management features are tied to a special power management Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL). During the Refresh Installation procedure, Setup will completely redetect all installed hardware, including the updated BIOS, and rebuild the power management HAL as well as the part of the registry in which information about the installed hardware is stored.

How to turn on toshiba satellite M300 laptop from hibernating mode


hi shirleygty, is that automatic hibernation (the computer hibernates by itself) or manual hibernation (by pressing the hibernate button)? If either applies to your case you might need to update the BIOS information for your computer to fix the power management issues on it. You can get it here. Just run the file, click install & choose Install From Windows. Make sure you don't have any BIOS password or any external devices connected to the computer. When the update completed successfully, your computer will automatically restart, then try hibernating this time (manual or automatic). I do recommend setting the hibernation to 1min. at the control panel > power options > change when to turn off the display. When it hibernates, pressing any keys or the power button should wake up the computer.

Hope this helps.
