Computer wont stop timing out

Whether you use your computer for home or for work, it is important that it be available when you need it. If your computer keeps timing out, it will take precious time to bring it back to life so you can use it. Fortunately there are some simple changes computer owners can make to keep their computers from timing out and going into sleep mode.

Log on to your computer and click on the "Start" button. Choose "Control Panel" from the menu. Double-click on the "Power" icon in your computer's control panel. Look at the power settings for each option. Adjust the power options so that the computer's hard drive, monitor and system resources do not turn off. Many computers are set to time out after a period of inactivity, but it can be time consuming to wake them from their hibernation. By changing the power options you can prevent your PC from timing out and make sure it will be there when you need it. Hope this helps.

Dell pc with windows xp wont come out of standby mode to be able to power up pc and use it

First, how do you know it's in standby mode?
I would turn it off and disconnect from the power source. Then plug it back in and try to start it. If possible, start it in safe mode to see if you can identify what is happening. If in safe mode, do a system restore back a day or two.
var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_889fec04667049cfad3405862ebb395a(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_d9758fe2c8fa4d33bc34f8b0b6f0496c(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Sir/madam, i would like to know how to download photos from sony ericsson w8 10i to pc. I don't have software cd with me now.

Hello there.

If you have the cord to connect from PC to your Phone, then you can try downloading them.

Plugged the connector from your phone to pc.
Then look at your computer there would be popup.
And look to your Phone there would be an option for you like.
Print, USB mode, Mass Storage etc.

Use the Mass Storage so that it wont need such pc suit.
In that option you can also charge your phone.

Once connected go to My Computer. there you should find your Phone Drive. mostly F:

Hope that helps and please vote. :)

Windows explorer keeps shutting down if inactive.

Go into the Control Panel and check out this category:
Power Options - See if your computer is set to shut down or enter standby mode at a specified interval. If you do not want it to, change the setting to an acceptable one. You will have options for time until the monitor turns off, the hard drive turns off, the system stands by and the system hibernates.

Hope this helps,

WindowsXP Desktop not Opening:

If you mean that your pc constantly restarts, then you may either have a RAM problem, or a PCI Card problem. Start by removing the screw on the back of your computer, The one that is holding down the left side cover if you are looking at it from the front.

Then, simply remove your stick of ram, and put on the pc. Then take off the pc and put back the part in another slot... Put the pc on and see if it boots.

Next, if that does not work, Press the power button and start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.

If that does not work, try live help so someone can run you through the process...
