Sleep State Resume Trouble

Hi.
I opened laptop to resume work. It began to 'waken' from sleep state, but I closed 'lid' again before it had fully wakened. Monitor is now blank/black, and laptop is unresponsive to any input, even though power is still indicated as 'on'. Cannot shut down, as power button is nonresponsive. I removed AC power cord, with no change.

Should I remove battery, discharge power button, then reinsert battery and AC cord and power up again?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes, unplug, remove battery, replace, then start. It's just glitched slightly, no biggie.

Hi I am using my LG 42LH3000 LCD TV as a monitor for my Dell M65 Precision Laptop, which works fine but only as long as i have the lop top open, as soon as i close the lid of the lap top the TV goes blank....


Make sure you set the right action for the laptop closing. Right click on the battery or plug icon on far right of the windows bar the go to power option.

Then make sure that for any power mode the computer won't enter the sleep state when closing the lid.

If this doesn't work, you might have a dell specific software the takes care of the power setting and override the windows default one, try to find it and alter the settings as mentionned above.

good luck

Effect of sleep button


Hi a_hedges,

Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player-the computer immediately stops what it's doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.

When a computer is in Sleep mode, the power light is blinking and you get a blank screen like it's turned OFF.

On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop. Check the documentation that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.

Hope this helps.

Windows XP Pro 64-bit intermittantly wont come out of 'Sleep' mode or waken


Hi,
Try turning off, and unplugging the monitor.
then replace the cable between monitor and pc.
if you still get no action, i,d suggest looking at the graphics card.
if it,s a pci card, try it in a different slot on the motherboard.
if it,s agp try an alternative card, if it,s onboard, try adding an additional card to the system, to see if that brings the monitor out of standby.
