Enable Hibernation in Windows 7 Starter on Samsung N150


Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work.

Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money! Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow. The Shut Down menu appears. Point at "Sleep" and click on this option. Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode. Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse. There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on. All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode. Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity Your Computer in sleep mode b> First, save all of your work.

Can not turnon standby on a dell xps 400


Assuming you have Vista on your machine, this is something you can set or turn on or off from the Power Settings options. You get to them from the Control Panel->Change Screen Saver->Change Power Settings. You do need to spend a few minutes reviewing the different options available to you, and selecting the one that fits your needs.
The one of interest to you is under "Change when your computer sleeps". It'll take you to a window where you'll set the number of minutes of inactivity on your keyboard or mouse before an action is taken. I suggest you inspect all of the options available to you under "Change Advanced Power Settings", where you can be very specific and either allow or block "standby" or "hibernation" modes.
Good Luck!

Generally you can just hit the space bar a couple of times, and that should bring the machine out of Standby mode. However, if it is not Standby but Hibernate mode, you usually need to push the power button to bring it back from Hibernate.

You can adjust these and other power settings by going to the Control Panel, and clicking on the Power Options applet.
