Sleep mode is a convenient power-saving feature used on both laptops and desktop computers. This feature powers down hard disks, monitors, wireless devices and any other power-consuming peripherals without turning the unit completely off and necessitating a reboot. Sleep mode can prevent battery drain if using a laptop or mobile device while away from the power supply. This mode is useful when quick access to a computer is needed, but can be irritating if the sleep mode takes a long time to come back from. It is simple to turn sleep mode off, based on the operating system being used.

Go to the "Start" button, then click on "Control Panel." In the control panel screen, click "System and Maintenance," then click on "Power Options." This brings you to the "Select a power plan" page. From the "Select a power plan" page, select the option that says "Change plan settings." This changes the settings on the currently selected plan. Select the "Change advanced power settings" option. Click "Sleep" and then click on "Sleep After" to expand it. If using a laptop or mobile PC, click "On battery" and "Plugged in," then select the "Never" option. This turns off sleep mode for both battery and AC use. If you are using a desktop computer, click "Setting," click the arrow and then click "Never" to turn off sleep mode. Click "OK," then click "Save changes" to save the modification. b> Turning Off Sleep Mode - Mac OS b> Click on the Apple logo at the upper left corner of the screen to open the menu and select the "System Preferences" option. From the "System Preferences" screen, click on "Energy Saver." If you are using a desktop, select "Power Adapter" in the top drop-down menu. In the second drop-down menu, select "Custom." Highlight the "Sleep" tab, then adjust the top slider to the far right, marked "Never." I f you wish the display to stay on, adjust the bottom slider to "Never." Click the red button on the upper left side of the "Energy Saver" screen. If you are using a mobile product or laptop, follow step 2 and select "Battery" from the top drop-down menu. Repeat step 3 to change the settings for battery use. Hope this helps.

Shut down my Acer 2480 wrong by pressing the power button. Now it doesn't reboot or boot up. I tried to pressing F2 to reboot but it doesn't do anything. Any suggestions?


Look at the power indicator:
If it is not lit, no power is being supplied to the computer. If the computer has a battery, it may be low and unable to power the computer. Connect the AC adapter to recharge the battey pack and make sure the AC adapter is properly plugged into the computer and to the AC power outlet.
If the power indicator is lit, check if a non-bootable (non-system) disk or USB thumbdrive is in the computer. If so, remove it and press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart the system.

Pressing F2 by itself is only used to enter the system's BIOS on startup. If the power indicator is lit but nothing appears on the screen - The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display on.
If pressing any key does not turn the display back on, check the following....
1. The brightness level might be too low. Press Fn and the right cursor key to increase brightness level
2. Display device might be set to an external monitor. Press Fn and F5 to toggle to the internal display
3. Backlight might be turned off. Press Fn and F6 to turn on the backlight.
4. If the Sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in Sleep mode. Press & release power button to resume.

Vista will not come out from sleep mode ?


Disable sleep mode. Right click the desktop any where. Chose screen saver at the bottom chose change power settings and chose change when the computer sleeps. Set to never. Just turn it off when not in use. Next; check the MS window site for a fix, there is a download update if it is still posted.

Macbook goes to sleep and doesn't wake up unless I do a hard reboot.


I have seen this caused by having a mouse plugged into mine. I have removed the mouse and touch the touchpad and it has come up from sleep.

That very well may not be your problem.

Here is the procedure that is recommend from Apple to help with the not waking from sleep problem. I included both methods as it is not clear which macbook you have. I also included the link to the article at the bottom.

The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is on the logic board of the computer. As the name implies, it is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

Over time, the settings in the System Management Controller may become unusable, which can result in operational anomalies with the computer. Examples include not turning on, not waking from sleep, not charging the battery, or not recognizing the AC Adapter, among others.

MacBook (13 inch, Late 2008), MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2008), and MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2008)
  1. If the computer is on, turn it off.
  2. Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the computer's battery.
  3. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds and then release the button.
  4. Reconnect the battery and AC Adapter.
  5. Press the power button to restart the computer
Note: Starting with MacBook Pro (Late 2008) and MacBook (Late 2008) models, you may instead use the reset method for MacBook Air (below) to reset the SMC. All earlier models of MacBook and MacBook Pro must use the method described above, which involves removing the battery.
MacBook Air and MacBook Pro (Late 2008 and later)
  1. If the computer is on, turn it off by choosing Shutdown from the Apple () menu.
  2. Connect the power adapter to a working power source.
  3. On the built-in keyboard, press (left) Shift-Control-Option along with the power button once.
  4. Wait 5 seconds and press the power button to start the computer.
Note: You must use the keys on the left side of the built-in keyboard.


Here is the link to the article at the Apple support site.

On button


Look at the power indicator. If it is not lit, no power is being supplied to the computer. Check the following:
  1. If you are using on the battery, it may be low and unable to power the computer. Connect the AC adaptor to recharge the battery pack.
  2. Make sure that the AC adaptor is properly plugged into the computer and to the power outlet.
If it is lit, check the following:
  1. Is a non-bootable (non-system) disk in the external USB floppy drive?
  2. Remove or replace it with a system disk and press <Ctrl> + <Alt> +<Del> to restart the system.
The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display back on. If pressing a key does not turn the display back on, three things might be the cause:
  1. The brightness level might be too low. Press <Fn> + <→> (increase) to adjust the brightness level.
  2. The display device might be set to an external monitor. Press the display toggle hot key <Fn> + <F5> to toggle the display back to the computer.
  3. If the Sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in Sleep mode. Press and release the power button to resume.

Flashing Lights when powered down


The flashing LED is because your system is in "sleep" mode. By default windows Vista puts your computer in sleep. What this means is it doesn't shutdown the power completely it leaves a little going through certain computer components (more specifically the ram) to speed up the boot time when the power button is pressed again.

In XP a the default shutdown scheme is a complete shutdown where power is turned off after the shutdown process is done. If you are using XP you are putting your computer to sleep when shutting down.

As for the boot problem. Newer motherboards have an LED on the actual board to indicate that it is receiving power. If it is of either the power supply switch (at the back of the case) if off or the motherboard connection is loose and the shaking makes it fall into place. (Shaking is usually not necessary and indicates a problem...)

There are a few possibilities I can deduct from your description:
  • the connection from your power supply to your motherboard isn't properly seated and is causing this
  • the power supply switch (not the case switch) is being  turned off and results in the computer taking a few seconds before the internal LED become solid
  • ... the dreaded sign that the power supply is failing and is on it's last legs...
My suggestion is to check all connections and if that doesn't work borrow a power supply from a friend and swap them to see if it boots properly.

(If a friends with a spare power supply isn't an option a local PC repair shop should be able to help you out... but probably for a fee...)
