Is the monitor and the pc sleeping? You can change the settings in Control Panel under Power Options. Since I keep my pc on all of the time, I have my power settings as follows: go to Control Panel, then Performance and Maintenance, then Power Options. I have the option checked for 'always on' and for the monitor and HD, I have all of the options set to NEVER. I also don't have the box checked for Hibernation.

I have a Dell Optiplex 780 and when I am logged in and walk away for 15 or more minutes it will go to sleep, I will then come back wake it up, log in and the screen will go black and I cannot get in unless...


This problem is ongoing because you have it configured to sleep turn the sleep mode off. What it is doing is attempting to load drivers again and not saving to cache when in sleep mode you may have not enough storage allotted for the sleep mode to save information go and increase the storage memory to store the data so that when it sleeps it can store the data and wake up with your screen as it was when you left it.
Personally I do not use sleep mode never have, never will. It is nothing but a problem for me anyway. I always keep my machines running with the exception of a lap top. So my suggestion is turn sleep mode off. I also log out and then log back in same principal really. Or just close the machine totally power it down. Sleep mode was a wonderful concept along with shutting down hard discs etc. However you will often times be more into a hassle than just leaving it on or shutting it down. Less work for a computer is better just my humble opinion.
Last but not least, my last resort would be to re-install operating system again once I start getting to many things going wrong with my machines I do them over solving all sorts of problems that are behind the scenes that take hours sometimes to repair individually. This would be after you retrieve your lost files from the drive. John

Laptop goes into permanent sleep mode, etc


If you can restart it and it starts up fine, then I would go into the power settings and disable sleep mode. Every computer is different on how to wake a sleeping computer, so you could read through your manuals and find out for yours, but I just disable sleep mode on all computers so i dont have to hassle with it.

Ensure that you did not press the conbination of keys that switches to the external screen, on thinkpads this is Function key , plus one of the numbers.

Check if the computer is in sleep (hybernate) mode, in this case you should be able to wake it up with the start button, or on some model with the wake up button.

IF you still cannto restart the computer, then it is probably frozen, remove battery and try to restart the laptop in this way.

After restarting check the power settings (you find them also on display properties/screensaver, or in the control panel). set the computer not to turn off.

If the computer screen does not turn on again doing the above, or there is no way to wake it up when it goes in standby, then the unit may be faulty.
If the computer is new, in this case, better getting a replacement or a repair.

Monitor will not restart after sleep mode


Hi,
it's not a hardware-problem - it's a windows feature smile_wink.gif - (and it really is one !) - please try this:
To prevent a USB mouse from waking your PC

1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Device Manager.

2. In the list of device categories, expand Mice and other pointing devices.

3. Right-click the entry for the USB mouse, and then click Properties.

4. On the Power Management tab, clear the Allow this device to wake the computer check box.

5. Click OK.
Don't forget to do this with your mouse + keyboard !

If it is in standby mode hitting any key on the keyboard or moving the mouse should wake it up. If it is hibernating pushing the power button should wake it up.
