PC will not wake up from 'power save' mode

Q: PC will not wake up from 'power save' mode

My PC will tend to not wake up when it has been idle for maybe 30mins plus. My screen is set to turn off after 10mins, when I try to wake it up nothing happens basically, but the HDD (SSD) light is normally blinking.

My power save options are all set to Windows 7 default apart from:
Changed 'Turn off display' to '10mins'
Changed 'Put the computer to sleep' to 'Never'
Changed 'Turn off hard disk' to 'Never'
Thanks for the help, SF diagnostic files are attached.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

Once every couple of days when my monitor goes into power-saving mode, it will not wake up, no matter what keys I type, or how many mouse clicks I do. My power-saving settings within Windows 8.1 is set to No hibernation or sleep, so the PC is running while my monitor is in power-saving mode. I need to do a manual restart on my tower in order to re-start Windows. I suspect the OS may have something to do with it.

There are no BSOD errors that I see.

My hardware is as follow:
AMD X4 630 (OC)
12GB DDR3 RAM
256GB Crucial MX100 SSD
ATI RADEON 7790 1GB
and a few other HD's.

Thank you!

We've had some power offs and ons due to snow storms recently. But, I don't know if the power is the actual problem.

Typically when I come to the computer its in the sleep mode and a mouse movement or keyboard key would wake up the machine. In the last few days neither do a thing.

A couple observations-

1) My Samsung monitor's power blue light , stays blue and blinks
2) The case power on button light is on and steady lite.
3) Pressing the reset doesn't go to reset, kind of does nothing
4) Pressing and holding the power button acts the same as the reset

In the end , I turn the power strip off then on again and then all's well.

The board is an Asus, with an AMD processor, 16 gig mem.

Samsung SSD
Any ideas?
Thanks

Hey wassup guys?

I bought a new computer today, when i start up the computer my monitor is on standby, as i press some buttons on my monitor i get the message "In power save mode, press a button on the keyboard or move the mouse".

I cannot use my mouse and when plugged in my keyboard does not work.

My monitor is a Dell, i have yet to install windows XP on my machine so there is no OS, I also cannot open my CD/DVD drive.

Any suggestions?, thanks.

A:Power save mode

I would guess that the monitor is not connected properly check all the cables - The main thing to check is if it is in the right port. A lot of computers have two monitor ports - one higher up - one lower down.

If there is another port lower down try that one.

If that doesn't work i would take the monitor to another computer and test it.

Hi. I just bought a MAC and have been trying to get my photos off of my PC desktop to put onto my MAC. It has Windows XP Home Edition on it. My problem is: when I turn my computer on, everything seems to start fine except my monitor is in Power Save Mode. I've tried rebooting with F8 and unplugging and restarting. Nothing is working. I've googled this and found pretty much the same answers...go to the start menu, etc. BUT I can't get to the start menu because my screen is blank. I have also seen to reset BIOS. But I have no idea what that is. lol I'm computer illiterate, I'm afraid. Any ideas would be helpful!

Ok, i'm sure half of you have already seen enough threads about the power save mode problems, i've read each of those.

My problem is;

Old monitor breaks and i find a replacement, a dell monitor. I plugged it in and it worked fine, i then powered down the pc and left the monitor on stand-by. My other monitor normally switches itself off after being in standby for a short period.

I tried to boot up today and the monitor didn't display an image, so i pressed one of the colour settings on the monitor and i got the 'power save mode' text come up.

I've unplugged the monitor, checked the connection to the computer etc...


I've made no changes in the BIOS or control panel. I shutdown as normal, but left the screen in standby...

Any tips to fix this?

After my computer sits for a while the moniter enters power save mode like it should but it won't come out of it unless I force restart my computer. I can't even press the power button once and wait for it to shut down properly, because it never will. I have to hold the button until it forcibly shuts down.

Then, after I start it back up and sign in to my profile, the screen goes black and it takes 1-2 minutes for the desktop to load.

I've tried searching on the internet and I've come up with "It's either the monitor or the graphics card, or possibly the cable connecting the 2." Well my moniter tests out fine. I bought a new cable. I bought a 250 dollar graphics card. It worked fine all day yesterday, but this morning it was stuck in power save mode and did the same song and dance all over again. Can anyone guess as to what's up? (I hope it's not hard drive related because I'm on my 3rd one for this computer as it is)

Try swapping your ram around.

Problem could also be with your graphics card using too much of the power supply, stick with the onboard vga for now.

Report back if swapping the ram around in the slots works or not.

A:How to get your Cpu out of Power Save Mode?

That can sometimes happen if a screensaver "kicks in" first, followed by power-saving mode. Usually only happens with third-party screensavers, although on XP it can also happen with the built-in screensavers to. If you set a screensaver it's best not to set any power-saving features. Conversely, if you set power-saving features don't set a screensaver. The two can sometimes conflict with each other.

Try one of these:

Press the <Enter> key.

Turn off the PC by pressing and holding the power-on button for 5 seconds, release button when it turns off. Now press to turn it on again.

One thing you might check is the CMOS battery. That is the battery on the motherboard that is about the size of a quarter. Since the computer is that old, the battery may have lost its charge.

It does not wake up from the power saving mode. Even restarting the laptop does not solve this issue. We need to keep restarting multiple times and by chances it will be detected.

Recently bought 4 months ago a card from Dell. It was an ATI Radeon x1600 512 MB card. Friend of mine who owns the exact same PC brand bought the very same card shortly after I did.

Problem is we both had this same odd power save mode problem occur recently and now I cannot do anything with my PC. Upon boot up of the computer there is no start up screen and the computer monitor power button is blinking off and on with a green light. When I check the status it says " the monitor is in power save mode, activate the computer to remove it". I can hear fans inside my computer being louder than usual ( not sure if its the video card fan or other).

Problem is the computer isnt responding, no light on the mouse or anything. Only thing I see is a green light on the towers power light but no activity lights at all. On the back of the computer I have a,b,c,d lights, the A and C are yellow which means the system detects it as a video card problem. I just find it a little odd that both of our original cards burnt out at the same time, and now these cards die out at the same time.

I am wondering if it has something to do with mcafee, because we recently both installed a new version of mcafee and we had no problems with the card until AFTER we installed this protection.

I have tried reseating the card and nothing, I have reconnected all cables and nothing as well. I can put in my old card that originally burnt out before I bought this one and it atleast has a picture.

I have a Lenovoa X61 Tablet running Windows Vista.

When the power settings are set to "High Performance", no lock ups occur.

When the power settings are set to "Balanced" or "Power Saver", the computer will function for between 20 minutes and 2 hours. Somewhere in that time frame, here is what will eventually occur:

1.) I will be able to interact between the windows and move things around for a little while, but will be unable to save/open/close anything.
2.) Eventually the windows will stop moving and the screens will turn white, indicating they are "not responding"
3.) Eventually all I can do is move the mouse pointer and I am forced to hold down the power button to reboot.

If I run the resource monitor, I can predict when this is going to occur because:
1.) The "Disk" goes to 100% and stays there without ever going down
2.) All processes under "Disk" begin to shut down one by one until nothing is left. All the other categories seem to act totally normal.

If the laptop is on power save/balanced mode and is plugged in, this still occurs. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I had the person try different Power cord, different outlet, even my mother in-laws house... She said, same problem... I went over to the in laws place.. Started right no problems.... Returned to owner, pc wont start again.. just a flashing light and power save mode...Im lost... Power supply? Mother Board, Memory

Hello,

my setup is the following

NVIDIA GeForce 6600 - (2) 15" Monitors (Work Fine)
NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS - (2) Monitors (1) 20" also cloned to my 47inch TV.

The issue that i am having is that the 20" montior on the 6800 goes into power save mode and wont get out of it no matter what i do. Computer stays on an i able to work off my 47". The only way to get this monitor back on is to restart the machine.

This monitor will go to power save mode at random it doesnt matter if the machine has been on for a minute or for a day. it also doesnt matter if my 47" is on or off.

The other 2 15" are not affected and continue to function fine.

Any ideas?

I have a strange problem with my monitor (Dell P991). This morning when I turned on my computer (custom made: Asus A7V600, AMD 2700+, 2X512 GB Ram, 80GB Seagate HD, ATI 9200 Radeon 128MB) it displayed "monitor in power save mode activate with your computer". I disconnected the video cable, and the monitor self diagnosed OK. The power LED on the motherboard is green. The optical mouse red light does not come on, and I cannot see if the keyboard is detected. Restarting everything did not change the situation. I tried with two other monitors (a Samsung and a DigiView), each with its own signal cable. The Samsung did not display anything, and its on light near the switch kept blinking, as if in a power save mode. The DigiView displayed: "please check the signal cable). I know that these monitors are OK. So, the problem is with the communication between my computer and the monitors. I removed and reseated the video card and the Ram, but nothing changed. What might be the problem, and how should I proceed?

Thanks.

This afternoon I went to use my Dell desktop, but the monitor will not get out of safe mode. I pressed one of the buttons on the monitor and it says the computer is in safe mode and that I should touch any keyboard button or move the mouse. I did both both the button still stays orange and the screen is blank. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Frank
 

A:Dell Power Save Mode

Are you sure we arent talking about standby?
anyway the button for the monitor...just keep it on as when you shut down the computer it will shut off
The light you will see on the monitor merely shows that it has power and is ready.
if you are going on vacation or similar then poweroff the monitor..but other than that just leave it on as it shuts off when you turn off the computer

Hi, I didn't see any helpful topics on this.

But just recently my computer is stuck in "Power Save Mode".

Here's how it started:

I took out my ram to see the information about it, as I plan on buying more. I took out the video card since it's in the way of getting the ram in easily. So when that was all in order securely, I pressed the power button.

"Moniter is in power save mode activate using PC"

I could hear fans spinning inside the tower, but no beeps.

Last time this happened, I held down the "Insert" key, which fixed it last time. This time, it did nothing.

I tried leaving the battery out for over 8 hours, nothing.
Held the "Delete" key and power button.
Used an older video card.
Re-arranged ram.

Nothing.

I googled my problem, and I read something about a clear CMOS "jumpstarter" or something.

I'm positive I have this on my ASUS, because it says,
"CLRTC
1-2 normal
2-3 clear"

However I have NO idea what it looks like where it is or how it works.

I am nearly losing my mind on this! What should I do?!

A:Power Save Mode(lengthy)

Right click on an empty portion of the desktop and choose properties. On the screen saver tab click the power button. What is it set to on "power schemes?"
