Make sure that in the Power settings of your control panel that the hibernation mode is enabled and that you have enough disk space to use it.

Check to see which mode your power button is set for as well.

No active standby button, hybernate facility not found.


In the control panel, go to performance and maintenance then click power options. Or, right click the desktop and select the screen saver tab, then click the power button. If the hibernate tab is missing, either your hardware does not support standby/hibernation mode, or it is disabled in the BIOS. If the hibernate tab is available, click Enable hibernation to do you know what.

Wont come out of sleep mode


hi ck leapfrog,

thry this method done through about.com

right click on desktop > properties > screen saver > click on power > set the time u want your monitor to turn off ( but with the pc on ) and the hard disk also, but i would suggest give it more time with the hard disk.
and standby mode, i think it's what you want, it turns off the whole computer but if you touched anything, it will turn back on.
hibernate closes the computer completely but it's same like standby, coz the application will still be running and all.
about the welcome/login screen, click on advanced tab > under options, uncheck prompt for passport when computer resumes.

hope this helps.

regards,

voodoo

The prpblem is your screen saver settings. The screen saver is password protected, which means when your computers screen saver is active and you start to use it again you have to sign back in. Beside the minutes settings there is a box that if it is check off than it dislays the log in screen, uncheck that box and your good to go.

Let me know how you made out.
Good luck.

I want to watch a movie on my pc but it goes into sleep mode 20 minutes into the movie. How can i change the settings. It displays (auto input interjection) how can i change it?


Turn off your screensaver from your desktop settings, and modify your power control settings from within control panel. Alternately, you can make a conscious effort to move the mouse every 19-1/2 minutes. I think I would change the settings.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

New Dell desktop computer - installed Norton Security 2007 - sreensaver and energy modes don't work


Since Norton and many other virus protection programs run in the background of the computer, when you try to go into standby mode, or screen saver mode, the program is recognized as an action by the user, hence triggering the computer to return to normal use. So all you have to do is turn off Norton before you go into standby mode, and this should fix the problem.
