Hp pavilion all in one AMD goes to sleep after 1 minute idle then asks for password to open up.. how to extend idle time to 2 hours


What you are experiencing isn't "sleep" mode, it is the screen saver. If you have WINXP, right click on a clear area of the desktop, and select "Properties". When the DISPLAY PROPERTIES window appears, select the "screen saver" tab. Change the "WAIT" time to the time you wish the scrren saver to delay. If you don't want to have to login after a screen time out, uncheck the "On resume, display Welcome Screen" box.

Created a 300 picture slide show on my pc. the screen will go blank after 30 minutes and i have to hit the return key or touch the pad. Is this a sleep setting issue or kodak?


I suspect you have a screen saver set up that blanks the computer screen after 30 minutes.
If you are running Window XP, right-click your mouse on the desktop, choose Properties, from the Display Properties dialog, click the Screen Saver tab, then in the Wait box, increase the amount of time before the screen saver activates. Click the OK button when you are through.
Good luck,

How can I disable my monitor's sleep mode? I don't want the screen to go black, I want to be able to see the screen saver as it cycles. Thank you.


You can do this in the Power Savings options with Windows. For Windows 7, rght click on the display (anywhere with no icons or running programs) and choose Personalize. Click on Screen Saver in the lower right hand corner. Adjust the Wait time for the screen saver if desired and click Apply. Then click on Change Power Settings. This brings up the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Settings. Then click on Edit Power Settings for the active power plan. (For desktops it is usually the balanced power). Then change the setting for Turn off monitor to Never when plugged in. Also change the Sleep time for the computer to Never. You can do the same for when on battery but it will shorten the length of time that the computer will be able to run on the battery for laptops. Then Save Changes and close the windows.

For older versions of Windows, these advanced power settings are also available from the Screen Saver settings page but details may differ.

I hope this helps.

2. select properties
3. go to the screen saver tab in the window that opened
4. check wether the screen saver is set to "None" If not, do so.
5. Click the "Power" button
6. In the window that opened, set Turn off monitor to never.
7. You're done!

For Vista and Windows Seven:
1. Right-click the desktop,
2. In the windos that opened, click personalize,
3. Click screen saver (bottom right)
4. In the window that opened, set the screen saver to "None"
5. Click "Change power settings"
6. In the window that opened, click "Choose when to turn off the display"
7 Set "Turn of the display" to Never.
You're done!

My hp goes to sleep alot???


CHECK YOUR POWER SETTINGS
1. Right Click your desktop and click properties
2. On properties window click the screen saver tab. Beneath it, click the power button.
3. On the Power Schemes, you can either select the Home/Office Desk or Always On option
4. For the other options below, select NEVER for all of them and click apply.

5. go to the Hibernate Tab and take off hibernate and also click the apply button

Restart your PC and watch out if the problem still persists.

if it dos then you need to download a new Power Management driver or ACPI from HP's website.

If it comes to this pls let us know so we can assist.
