Right Click on the desktop and select properties.
Click the Screen Saver Tab
At the bottom, click on power.
There you can select from a variety of power schemes and when your system will go into standby mode.

(Note these are Windows XP instructions, if you have Vista, let me know)

I need a new on/off switch for my hp pavilion a335w.

You can easily buy a new computer case. They are usually inexpensive. I have not seen any sites that sell the switch separately.

Try going on the HP website to find the part.

I have a HP vs17 monitor that keeps going to sleep. It will flash to windows when I first start and immediately goes into sleep mode. When this first happened, I had managed to make sure any sleep modes,...

trixieb1, It's NOT going to sleep mode. Use warranty if possible!! If that not option you will need to read about "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" and the voltage inverters that power them. Learn to do flashlight test when screen goes to black or blank n black!!! Read my fixya profile and those of other ccfl back-lit lcd monitor technicians. We already know what is wrong with your unit. And It is a VERY big problem for all LCD monitor manufacturers. Just do some reading before you do anything else. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

Computer goes into hibernate mode frequently. Has to be rebooted

Check the cooling fan on the processor, if its working well then you have to reinstall ur OS, backup ur data on an external HD and format the system and reinstall the OS, this would solve the problem.
