Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook

1 Answer

My IBM T23 Laptop screen keeps going off (hibernating or sleeping?)

How do I change the setting so that the screen does not go to hibernate or go to sleep?  Or, as I am not familiar with programming computers and changing settings, what should I do to turn it on again besides removing and replacing both the main batter and backup battery? On internet I found T23 manual for maintenance and repair, but not User Manual. I bought this secondhand and have not had it very long, so I'm not used to it and it is my first laptop. Pls help me.
Thanks

Acer one with windows 7 ultimate fall into sleep mode


A laptop computer is typically set to conserve battery power. One of the common settings called standby, sleep mode or hibernation turns off power to the screen and the laptop itself after a preset time limit passes without any mouse or keyboard activity. It can be inconvenient for the computer to shut down while you're working on an open page or during a download. Change the setting if you don't want your laptop to going into automatic shutdowns

Turn the laptop computer on with the power button if it's not set to turn on upon opening. Allow the system to boot up. Open the panel for adjusting the sleep settings. This varies among the popular versions of Windows operating systems. To change the sleep mode setting on a laptop running Windows XP, click the "Start" button, and click the "Control Panel" selection. Choose the "Performance and Maintenance" selection, and click on "Power Options." Click the "Power Schemes" tab, and click the drop downs next to "Turn Off Monitor," "Turn Off Hard Disk," "System Standby" and "System Hibernates." Select "Never" for each drop down in both the "Plugged in" and "Running on Battery Power" columns. Click the "Hibernate" tab and click to remove the check mark in the box next to "Enable Hibernation." To change the sleep settings on a Windows Vista laptop, click "Start," "Control Panel," "Systems and Maintenance" and "Power Options." Then click "Change Plan Settings" under the currently established plan. Click on the "Advanced Settings" tab and select the "Never" option on the "Sleep," "Sleep After," "Hibernate After," "Display" and "Turn off Display After" drop downs. Click the "OK" and "Save Changes" buttons to confirm the settings. To change the sleep settings on a laptop running Windows 7, click the "Start" button, choose "All Control Panel Items," select "Power Options" and click "Edit Plan Settings." Click the drop downs for "Turn off the Display" and "Put the Computer to Sleep." Choose "Never" for both and click the "Save Changes" button.

Laptop does not wake up after sleep


I see this problem a lot, in most cases it is a problem with the ACPI driver. The easiest solution is to make changes to the Power Management settings. What happens is part of the computer goes to sleep and part goes into hibernate. Unless I am trying to conserve battery power I set the system to always on and use the screen saver to protect the screen from damage. If I am looking to save battery then I still set the screen to always on with the black screen saver and set the rest of the settings to sleep with no Hibernate settings. Hibernation is nice but really does nothing more than write data to the hard drive so the system can restart and you do not save anytime allowing it to operate. It causes more problem in configurations than it solves. In fact the only machine I might consider using a Hibernate setting on would be a server.

When my computer goes into sleep mode it freezes after 5 seconds


There are a lot of systems out there having trouble with the sleep and hibernation programs in windows. The first thing I would do if I wanted to keep the sleep and hibernation programs in place would be to update the BIOS file on the system. I for one am a believe the computer in turning off the sleep and hibernation. They have caused more corrupt windows installations than I care to remember or work on again. If you want to try turning these off for a while and see how the computer reacts, go to the control panel > power option > scroll through the settings and change the way the computer sleeps and hibernates. Also change the setting for what happens when the lid is closed. Change it to "Do Nothing" this will correct a case of the computer not waking up from somply closing the lid. The lcd will automatically turn off when you close the lid and turn back on when you open it...you don't need the computer going to sleep simply because you close the lid for second.

I am unable to unhibernate


Power down the computer and power back up. Lets just shut hibernation off...you can always just have the computer sleep...it is much better on the system anyway.

Shutting Down Hibernation

Go to the control panel > Power Options > Hibernation tab > uncheck hibernate…this way you save a lot of disc space and don’t have to go through all the intermittent hibernation problems that occur. After you uncheck hibernation, you can go to the other power options and change how the computer reacts to the lid being closed, when it sleeps and for how long before sleep kicks in. Make sure to change the setting for what happens when lid closes to “do nothing” this will keep the laptop alive even though you close the lid to move it, etc.

Hiberation mode ,,what do i do/


Hello,

Hibernate mode is a power saving feature for computers. In hibernate mode, the current state of a computer is saved to the hard disk, and the computer shuts down. A user will have to power on the computer to restore the previous settings. When a computer resumes from hibernate mode, it reads the saved settings from the disk and restores the system state as it was before it entered hibernate mode. By default, hibernate mode is disabled. If a computer is not ACPI-enabled or APM-enabled, users will have to enter hibernate mode manually. Users cannot set the computer to automatically hibernate after a certain time. With ACPI-enabled and APM-enabled computers, users are able to set hibernate mode automatically

How to enable Hibernate:
Please follow this steps below to enable your Hibernate features:

1. Go to Main screen in your windows then right click your mouse to an empty area in your main menu.
2. After clicking the right click please select the properties then go to Screen Saver Tab.
3. Please Click the Button name Power then click the Hibernate Tab.
4. Please check the CheckBox name Enable Hibernation to enabled the hibernation if it is not hibernated.
5. To try test the Hibernate process please follow the steps in How to start using Hibernate below.

How to start Using Hibernate:
Please follow this steps below to active your Hibernate Features:

Make sure all necessary programs are closed prior to shutting down. Hibernating will put all programs to "sleep," but some programs won't start up properly. Experiment after this to figure out which programs perform as intended.
  1. Click Start and Shut Down,
  2. Point the standby button and maintain the shift key pushed,
  3. A new hibernation button appears: click it while still holding the shift key: voila your PC will hibernate.
Thanks

My IBM T23 Laptop screen keeps going off (hibernating or sleeping?)


What operating system you running? I assume XP. If you go to start > settings > control panel > Power options (I think). You can change the options on how long before the screen turns off and stuff in there. For the other problem just right click on your desktop, and click "Properties". Adjust the screen resolution there.
