Mine does not power down automatically at 30min; it stays on unless I press and hold the power button. Warantee is out of date and Dell want $49 just to chat.

My power options in control panel really is a waste.

So much for Dell

Windows XP:

By default, all laptops either go on standby or turn off to save precious battery, but you can override these rules from the Power Options (XP) in your control panel (Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options) and click on Advanced Tab and override the settings according to your preference.

Tip

Change the Sleep Button on the Start Menu to Shut Down


Want to shut down Vista with one click, instead of sleep.

Open Power Options in Control Panel

On the current plan your computer is running, click change plan settings

It will open Edit Plan Settings, find Change Advanced Power Settings and click on it.

Power Options will open, find the expandable tab that says Power Buttons and Lid, expand it.

Expand the tab that says Start Menu Power Button.

If you are running a laptop there will be two options, one for On Battery and one for Plugged in, click on the word sleep to open a pull down menu.

Click on the arrow, than Shut Down.

Click Apply and than okay. Close all Windows, Shut Down should be on the start menu instead of sleep

Hi My daughter has an Advent 5313 laptop. It will load vista ok then randomly while using the screen willbreak up into blocks and start shaking. on pressing and holding the power button it shuts down but...


Sounds like the unit could be over heating, or the laptop video memory is not strong enough to run vista with its full graphics. For the over heating issue try cleaning out the air vents with some compressed air and making sure your not placing the laptop on its belly completely, and use the legs to let air flow beneath the machine. For the Video Graphics, once Vista is up, go into the Video Settings or Perfomance of the machine. Best way to get to this Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Theme.

If I leave my samsung q210 idle, the screen goes blank after a while. You can still see (and move) the mouse cursor, but the computer does not respond and you have to restart the computer to be able to...


Sounds like ou might have the Computer set to either Hib ernate or Standby.

Go into the settings and disable them so as to NOT have Hibernate or Standby.

My wife's Laptop has this problem, and we found that just shutting it down when you don't need it, when on battery this is, is the simplest and easiest way.
On power it doesn't matter, just close the lid is all that is needed.

Problem with Vista update on Feb. 17th 2009


What do you mean by "LOOPING"

Also have you tried to shut down auto updates to stop this problem them go and manually update yourself picking a few updates at a time, allowing them to install then rebooting the machine to make sure you dont have any issues?

You can get to windows update by click on your start button then on Windows Update Icon.

Myself as a tech Ive never allow windows to do auto updates as there is usually a glitch of some sort that happens. That is a lot of changes to a machine at any one given time.

Hope this helps you and others!

My laptop won't shut down properly!


Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

Windows Vista doesn't shut down the machine by default when you press the power button. Additionally, if you look at the bottom of the start menu you'll see this:

6fe475d.jpg

The button on the left, highlighted here in bronze, does NOT turn the machine off in Windows - it suspends it, which requires power. When the battery runs down, the power goes out and you get this message the next time you start up.

Some laptops also indicate suspend mode by flashing the power light.

Happily, if you click on the little right facing arrow a menu pops up, one of the options of which is "Shut down" and this will bring Windows down properly and fully.

You can also change the function of the power switch (which defaults to suspend, NOT shut down) by going into the power options from Control Panel:

Selecting one of the above options will allow you to set the power button and closing the lid to turn the machine off fully, not suspend it.
