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.

My viewsonic cine1000 shuts itself off after about 15 -20 min of playing. The bulb has about 500 hours on it. Why does it keep shutting itself down? It doesn't turn itself to standby either, the...


Make sure the PC itself is not going into a power saving or screen saver mode...this is the most common issue when playing completely automated presentations or movies.
Normally, I suggest turning off all power saving functions in the PC or Laptop, and disabling the screen saver all together.

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

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.

Standby Mode


Go to control panel then power options>power schemes and see if system standby is enabled, it may have changed if done some major updates. also turn off screen saver if on as this may bring it out of standby
