Preferred Solution: power saver mode.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

My computer seems to switch to Power Saver mode of its own volition. I'm not sure what triggers the switch from Balanced mode to Power Saver. Yes, I know and how to prevent screen dimming and sleep mode, and I know how to change the plan settings for any power mode...

...but what is the specific setting I need to use to prevent my computer from ever automatically switching to power saver mode? I want it to boot up into Balanced mode, and never, ever switch from that plan.

Thanks!

Jay

A:Dell Power Saver Mode

Well dust doesnt help any computer whether its a laptop or desktop. Although desktops for some reason get more dust in them than a laptop.Not everyone is comfortable taking computers apart to fix them.If people arent sure what they are doing take it somewhere and pay the money to have it done right.One wrong move and a computer can become a very expensive paperweight in minutes.

The screen works fine with the PC but with the television receiver it goes into Power Saver Mode.

Anytime I go to use my monitor (1.5years old Dell E2209W) it will turn on and be stuck in "entering Power Saver mode". This process began slowly, first it only happened every week, and all i had to do was just turn it off and then back on. It would sometimes happen as soon as I start my computer, and sometimes in the middle of doing something on it. Sometimes I would just have to turn it off and back on, sometimes I would have to unplug everything for a couple minutes and it would turn back on. For some reason it will not work with this computer now (Dell Vostro 410, Intel core 2 quad q6600 @2.4ghz, 4gigs ram, radeon HD3450, ...), and when I went to hook it up to my other computer, it worked for 2minutes and then cut out again, and it will not connect back to the computer.
I also have a Viewsonic VA912b that works perfect with both computers (with the same cords I was using for the E2209W, so it wouldn't be the cords), so it doesn't seem like it could be the computer. I've read a lot of forums of poeple having similar problems with their dell monitors, but usually they work with other computers.

It does pass the Monitor Self-Test. The computer doesn't acknowledge that i plugged anything into it when i connect the dvi cable either. Anyone have any idea what might be wrong?

I set my screen saver to blank after 4 minutes and my monitor to power down after 5 minutes. After 4 minutes I hear the Windows seven default sound for log off (I think) and the screen powers up but the blank screen saver stays on. This only happens when I have a check mark by show the welcome screen when the screen saver wakes up. Like I said, the screen saver does not show the welcome screen, the power just comes back on the monitor. paj692

A:after 4 minutes monitor wakes up from power saver mode

I'm not really sure what you are after, but if you don't want a screensaver, why not set it to "none" instead of "blank" That way there is no time factor involved, and the welcome screen will appear normally.

I've tried various settings on the advanced link in power saver in Windows 7 Ultimate. I hear the bing-bong (or is it bong-bing?) sound windows makes when the system wakes up, but the screensaver stays on. The screen goes to gray (LCD) as I'm using the 'blank' screensaver. I tried turning on the powersaving feature (monitor) with no special settings, and no screensaver loaded. (circle with a line through it on the screesaver icon). It has been asleep for over an hour (power off to the LCD monitor). With the screensaver on, the power usually only stays off on the monitor for 5 or 10 minutes tops. I've turned off several options in advanced and even told the NIC card not to wake up the system. Why would the power saver wake up when there is a screen saver running, but not when there is no screen saver running? paj692
 

A:Power saver mode (monitor) wakes up if screensaver is used.

Further information; this only happens (monitor wakes up) when the checkmark is placed in the box marked, 'on resume display welcome screen', Otherwise the monitor stays asleep with the screen saver on and the power saver on. Thanks paj692

I'm currently experiencing this issue and it's really annoying. I just bought this laptop for 2 months and it's been working fine. Then suddenly this problem started yesterday. Generally every time I open up a game my laptop will automatically switch to Power saver mode and it causes some lags in the game. At this point I would Alt+Tab to desktop and switch it to "High Performance". Here's the annoying part, even though I have set it back to "High Performance", the laptop still works as it in "Power saver" mode, I can tell because the game is still laggy and slow. I tried to restart the laptop and experienced the same issue. I ran a Full scan by using Avast Internet Security 2014 and didn't detect any problem at all. What should I do? Thank you.

Hello Frankie, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Hi, I've been having a few configuration problems that started happening a few days ago. First, my screen saver won't initiate after the set time. Trust me, the mouse has NOT moved. Second, I just recently changed my screen resolution back to the highest setting (which I had it on when I got my laptop in January, worked fine then), then when I restarted my comp, it went back to the previous setting. Finally, my standby mode will no longer activate. Its supposed to initiate when I close my laptop, (yes the power save options are set to that). But I still can't enter Standby even when I manually select it from the Turn off Computer Menu. Hibernate option also inoperative. I've run Anti-Spyware and Anti-Virus, but it didn't fix the problem. I'm not sure if these are related, but its kind of weird that they all started happening at once. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Listed problems for quick reference:
Screen Saver won't initiate after set time (Mouse has not moved, no key pressed)
Screen Resolution configuration won't save after system restart.
Standby mode and Hibernate inoperative. Manual and power save settings do not work.

I was working on my computer when the monitor spontaneously went into Power Saver mode and turned off. I was forced to do a hard shut down using the power button. I tried restarting the computer and got to the Windows logo before the screen went into Power Saver mode again. After another hard shut down, I restarted and only got to the Dell screen before losing the monitor again. A few more tries produced various results – in some cases, the monitor continued to go out from the Dell screen, while in some cases it would just sit on the Dell screen indefinitely, there was even one time through that it reached the auto-chkdsk stage, but promptly died a few minutes into that. I can select F2 or F12 from the Dell screen – but it doesn’t actually enter the BIOS setup or the Boot menu before the monitor dies again. It seems as though it sometimes finishes POST and other times it doesn’t, though I don’t hear any beeps in either case. (Yes, there is an internal speaker connected.)
It strikes me as being a problem with the BIOS or the video card – but it is really hard for me to tell. There could be a problem with the OS on the drive, but it doesn’t seem to get far enough in the boot process for me to think that’s the problem. I’ve read a number of posts with similar symptoms, but they don’t seem to ever run into the problem of not even being able to get into the BIOS setup or Boot menu, so it’s hard to know if they&rsquo...

My P50 could work with zero Fan noise before updating to Windows 10 Creator. FYI I use power option set to power saver plan and a VM set to use Nvidia GPU. This setup gave me very smooth silent desktop like VM with very long battery life. This way machine becomes warm but it cools down passively without using any Fan rotation.  Basically, CPU stays about 800Mhz most of the time and it saves battery because there is no fan usage.  After  Windows 10 Creator update, Windows do not respect power saving plan. CPU goes up to 3.1+Ghz for any simple task such as writing this message. This makes fan rotate with high speed even if I just use a chrome with intel GPU. I have reinstalled all drivers and I use Bios 1.38.My silent P50 become like a helicopter now. I want my power saver plan with zero Fan back!  Please give me an option so I can force the fan to stay silent or rotate less!

Hi. If i change in Windows 10 in Power Management from Balanced to Power Saver is this safe for graphic card?
I change from Balanced to Power Saver and fps in benchmark went from 180fps to 50fps. Is there any hardware related changes due to swap from Balanced to Power Saver ?

A:Windows Power Management - Power Saver - is this safe for graphic card

Power Saver attempts to save power by reducing the CPU’s speed all the time and lowering screen brightness, among other similar settings and that may account for your fps drop when benchmarking. Doesn't sound like a good choice for your purposes.

Hi,
I have a recent DELL laptop:
Inspiron 7000 (Inspiron 17 7778 2-in-1),
Core i7, 16 Gb RAM, 128 GB SSD + 1TB HD...
Not a lot of programs and lots of space available.
In the last few months I have had a lot of poor performance issues. I finally figured out it is related to Windows 10 Power Plan. When set to "Power Saver", the performance is awful. The CPU is maxed to 0.80 GHz. So when browsing the net or looking at my picture gallery, the computer hangs, and it becomes impossible to use. If I change the plan to high performance, the computer behaves normally - fast!
And even if I change the plan to another plan (i.e. High Perf), the next time I restart or wake-up the computer, the "Power Saver" power plan is set back... Very frustrating. And as shows the image, it is not the "bolded" option in the list. What can be changing constantly that parameter??
I contacted DELL chat support and they asked me to re-install Windows! There is probably a better way to fix this. It looks to me as a DELL Driver conflicting with Windows. Also, my mother has an older DELL laptop on Windows 10 and she experiences the same issue...
Any help would be very appreciated!
Cheers,

From the description of your problem and the fact that you used the word upgrade. I am assuming that you did just that upgrade and not a cusotm or clean install. If you did an upgrade, you will probably find other problems later on. My suggestion, bite the bullet save your documents etc. and do a clean install. If I am correct and you are not sure how to do this with and upgrade disc, just post the question and you will be helped.

Hello,

I've a Tecra M11 (Windows7 64-bit). The Toshiba Power Saver Settings V8.9.3.64 are installed.

My problem is: The fan is almost always on with maximum speed, whereby there is no processor load (only 1-5%). That is really loud and annoying!

What I've done so far: I switched the cooling method to "battery optimized" for both power modi, but without any effect.

Question:
1) Is there any quite office mode available (as many other notebook manufacturers offer for there business notebooks) to work in a silent environment?
2) Is there any option to deinstall the Toshiba Power Saver Settings and use the standard Windows7 cooling methods, because Windows 7 in general offers a passive cooling option with the effect that the fan is off.

Thanks a lot!
Frank

A:Tecra M11 power saver settings - fan almost always on

I?m really wondering this ?cooling method? settings didn?t help. I have Tecra A11 with Win7 64 bit and my notebook is absolutely silent. Changing these settings on several other Toshiba notebooks the result was the same. Notebook was much quieter.

Which power plan do you use?
Have you noticed some difference when you switch to ?Toshiba eco mode??

Answers:
# As far as I know such mode is not available on Toshiba notebooks.
# You can remove Toshiba power saver but it is a little bit complicated. You must remove whole Toshiba value added package. Later you must install VAP again but not in standard but custom mode and remove check mark in front of applications you don?t want to install.

I can go into my screen saver and into the Monitor Power settings and set it to turn off the monitor in, for example, 45 minutes.
And it will work for some period of time, usually for a couple of days.
Then it will inexplicably go back to simply a screen saver with no power saving. ANd when I look at all the settings, they are all just the way I left them.
This also happened, BTW, on my old WIN 98 system, which was an entirely different computer, except for the monitor.
However, there is some software that I had in WIN 98 that I reinstalled onto my new XP Home system, so I suspec that one of those peices of software is causing the problem.
What I don't know is what to look for to tell me what might have caused it to stop functioning.
One thing I was wondering is if there is some kind of software available that I can buy that will keep a log of what applications I have started and stopeed, so I can have a kind of journal of my activity, so I can narrow things down.

Starting a couple of days ago, Screen Saver and Sleep Mode are not starting as scheduled. I'm running Win 7 64bit and have had my setting established since I got the computer. There appears to be something running in the background that is preventing them from starting. As I watch the screen, I see something flash on the screen for a second, just a quick flash, not long enough to see what it is. The only thing I have running at startup is "Computer and Outlook 2013" which I have always had in Startup.

I looked at MSConfig and Services, but could not determine what this might be. Is there anyway to nail down what is causing the quick flash on the screen, as I think it is probably preventing Screen Saver and Sleep Mode from starting.

Thanks for any insights and tips on what to do.

A:Problem with Win7 Going to Screen Saver and Sleep Mode?

Uncheck everything in msconfig>Services and >Startup tabs (after Hiding all MS Services), reboot to see if problem persists.

Then add back your AV to see if it's involved, very possible if its bloatware like AVG or Avast instead of recommended MSE or Panda Cloud.

From there work through these Sleep Mode Problems - Vista Forums

There's no reason to use a Screen Saver which were to protect old CRT terminals. So I'd turn it off and use one of the Aero theme slideshows which are spectacular. You can even have the whole collection from 120 Original Windows 7 High Resolution Scenery Regional Wallpapers Free Download by downloading the folder then browsing to it from Control Panel>Personalization>Desktop Background.

Newbie here. Getting BSOD consistently every day. Sometimes occurs while using the computer and often has occurred while the computer was in screen saver mode and I come back to find it restarted.

This is a home built computer....built at the beginning of this year and everything ran fine until last few weeks (not sure how to tell what changed). I know enough to be dangerous but not enough to diagnose this. I followed the SF Diagnostics directions and attached the zip file here.

Please let me know if you can help. Thanks in advance!

A:BSOD Every day, multiple times, even when in screen saver mode

Welcome to SevenForums tdub4,

Most of your BSOD-s were caused by Asus Charger Driver and its Likely a BSOD cause

My power options (sleep, hibernate, monitor off etc) all ceased to work. Also the screen saver will not automatically start. I've tried all different settings and non of them function. I can preview the screen saver but it will not automatically start.
Thanks for any help or input.

I don't know if this may have been posted previously, but just in case it helps someone, I'll go ahead and post it. Use of the Power Saver Setting in Windows 8 lowers my pc temperature (at idle) by at least 6 degrees. Using this setting, my pc now idles at 27 degrees C. When I use High Performance, my idle temp is usually at least 33 degrees, or more. For those who have problems with their pc's running warm, this is just one of the things I've found which helps temperature lowering. My biggest impact on lowering temp was air cleaning the pc case interior - getting all the fuzzy balls out.....lol. At one point, my idle temp was in the 50 to 60 degree range and I figured my disk was failing. After checking for a possible problem, I found much of the problem was my own maintenance procedure failure. So, if your pc seems to be running rather high, look around for the simple solutions - clean pc, use power settings, etc.

If you reduce power, you also reduce performance.

Probably not but it would be cool and convenient.

A:Is it possible to connect a particular screen saver to a power plan?

AFAIK, no. Screensavers are "connected" to your desktop theme - if you save a theme different from your current, and assign another screensaver to it, it should change when you which between themes.

I can't seem to make the screen saver and power save settings work.
I adjust the power saving settings and set the screen saver, push the preview button and it's all good. But leave the computer for the allotted time and nothing happens. I also set the standby/powerdown duration and nothing happens there either, the machine just stays on.
any suggestions?
 

A:Screen Saver and Power Save issue

see the screen saver thread under "vista". I had the same problem and got it solved thanks to this site.

I've got a asus 7100 agp vid card (geforce 2 mx 400) on a gigabyte ga-8irxp mobo (p4 1.6 mhz). All is well, until the monitor goes into power saver mode. When the mouse or keyboard is tiggered to bring it out of powersaver, video does not return. The indicator on the monitor goes back to green, but the video image does not return. The machine continues to work through all of this - it is not frozen. my only way out of this is to do a blind shutdown (without the help of video). Upon reboot, all is well.

If I disable powersaver in windows, all is well, but I leave my system on and would like this feature to work. These are all new componenets on a clean win98se install.

Any thoughts?
