Sleep Mode

Q: Sleep Mode

I'm having trouble figuring out how to set my sleep mode so that it doesn't get triggered if I'm running background processes. It keeps interrupting scans, downloads, uploads, etc. The thing is, I don't want to stop my computer from ever going into sleep mode because I don't want it to just keep running if I'm not using it for anything. Is there a way that I can set it to sleep ONLY if I don't have background stuff running? My old computer just did it automatically and when I looked through the settings (I have the XPS15) I couldn't find any options other than a specific number of minutes or never.

Hi,
I've had this problem intermittently on my laptop for the past 2 years however it has been occuring more often recently.

Basically sometimes when I click the sleep button on Windows 7, the screen fades to black as usual. However the fan keeps running (sounds like when it's on full load) and the power button light stays on endlessly. I always have to force shut it down and restart it.

What can be the issue?
Thanks.

A:Laptop freezes between entering sleep mode to being in sleep mode

Hi joseph10444.

Such a situation may occur when some driver (mostly the PnP device drivers depending on the ACPI configuration) fail to response within a stipulated time period during the power state change.

Let us see some data. Upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Upload the list of all the third party drivers Using NirSoft DriverView :
Download and execute Driverview
View > Hide Microsoft Drivers
Edit > Select all
File > Save Selected Items
In the Save dialog, Set the path to desktop, Put "Driverview" in the name field, and save.
Zip the .txt file and upload it.
Those files will give us a closer look to the issue.

When I leave my computer after a session, it automatically goes into sleep mode after a period of time and remains that way till I wake it up.

However when I manually put it to sleep ( via shutdown options) , it goes to sleep immediately but for only a while ( a few minutes) then it shows the desktop screen again. If I then leave it alone after it self awake , it goes back to sleep as described above.

Any idea why ?

Thanks

A:Auto sleep mode works but manual sleep does not

Hi,

Some softwares can stop the sleep request to work properly.

run cmd.exe as a admin (Click on start, type CMD, right click on CMD.exe and select run as admin)
then type the command
powercfg.exe /energy
This will generate a report that will show if any software is blocking the sleep request. Your next step would be to configure the software in control panel power options

I like to put my computer on sleep so I can just come back to where I left it, but the past few days when I put it on sleep the screen would just go black like it was asleep, but the computer was still on and running like I didn't put it in sleep. Then when I move the mouse to come out of sleep it says "locking computer" and goes to my password screen (which is what it should do before going to sleep). I don't think its in the power settings because I've checked there and played around with the settings (I'm not technically challenged so I don't think it's something that simple lol).

Also, my touchpad scroll feature does not work (and has not worked for quite some time). It comes back when I turn the computer off and on again, but I only do that a few times a week. I've tried reinstalling the touchpad firmware so that isn't the problem.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215.

I've been using this Windows 7 Home system for some years. At first it used the CRT monitor I had for much longer than this system, then a used LCD monitor, now for the last six or eight months a larger used, but seemingly in excellent condition, Dell E228WFP.

My habit has been, for much longer than I've had the Win7 system, to manually put the system in sleep mode during the day when I expect to be away for any extended time. I turn it off if I will definitely be away for hours and turn it off over night.

The problem did not exist until this Dell monitor. I don't recall how soon after getting the monitor it started, probably not very long.

The system always come up working properly when first turned on but sometimes, when I awaken the system, the video is at a much lower resolution. Looking at the Windows Screen resolution, it says generic PNP monitor rather than the Dell. This is an annoyance but easy enough to fix, just click on Detect, and it switches back to the Dell at the higher resolution, the recommended 1680 X 1050, which is enough to suit me.

Starting perhaps six or eight weeks ago it sometimes instead woke up with a message

Cannot display this video mode
optimum resolution 1680 x 1050 60Hz

Hello Jack,

You might check using STEP SIX in the tutorial below as a guide to see if you have a "Power Management" tab to uncheck the "Allow to wake computer" option in it for you mouse in Device Manager.

If not, then you can use the STEP FIVE section to manually disable the mouse from waking up your computer.

Just be sure that you at least have the keyboard allowed to wake up the computer, or you will have to press the case power button to wake up your computer instead.

Hope this helps,

On my Vista laptop I was going to reboot it when I accidentally clicked on Sleep. It shut down & rather than googling to find out how to wake it up, I pulled the power cord out & removed the battery for a few seconds & plugged it back in & put the battery in & booted it up. I was unable to get to my home page in FF but could get in here to TS. Simple question, what happens when a laptop is put to sleep?
 

A:What does Sleep mode do?

Sleep mode saves the session to RAM (which doesn't need much power to run) and turns off pretty much everything else. USB power and RAM is still powered. The power light should be blinking.

Either press a mouse/key or press the power button, and it'll turn on super-quick to where you left off.

Hi all, may be a daft question! but if you use sleep mode (I've never used it before) on a desktop PC, does the power needed to keep things ticking over in the background come from the mains power or the battery on the mobo?

The longest I'm away from the PC is about 17 hours, so is it worth using sleep mode rather than shutting it fully down?

Thanks

A:Sleep mode?

Hello Avo,

It will use a small amount of the main power while in sleep mode to keep the memory (RAM) intact.

The motherboard battery is only used to maintain the BIOS and time settings of the motherboard while the computer is not plugged in to the outlet, or when the PSU has been turned off.

Sleep mode is helpful by having your computer startup right where you left off since your last session, and is handy if you are off and on the computer often.

You could use both sleep or shutdown if you like. Use sleep when you will be off and on, and use shutdown when it will be a while before the next session to save some energy.

It's really up to you and how often you use the computer though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You must change the setting before Windows loads. Reboot the Computer, you'll need to hit a "F(X)" button. Like F8 or F10 which will take you to the BIOS setup menu. This is where you can toggle sleep mode on/off. If windows starts to load, you didn't do it. You must enter the menu seconds after the computer is first turned on. If you see the Windows Screen, start over until you get into the menu.

If I lock my computer (or leave my computer for 5 minutes to lock automatically) and turn off my monitor when I come back after a long while I turn on my monitor and nothing will show up. My tower's power light is on so I know my computer is not off, yet even after moving my mouse around and the colour of the light on my tower and monitor changes from orange to white, nothing is displaying. The monitor does not say it's not connected, or the message that it is going into powersave mode (message given when my computer is off) so I know everything is working fine. I assume my computer has gone into sleep mode, or whatever this mode is called, but I have no clue how to get passed this except by holding down the power button on my tower and then turning it back on.
Any help is appreciated, thank you.

I'm new to these forums so I kind of skipped over trying the search feature, although once looking at my question again there are a list of related topics that may help me, sorry for posting something already discussed.

Hi
I have a dell desktop computer running vista
Several days ago my computer went into sleep mode
I couldn't get it out of sleep mode so
I unplugged the computer and plugged it back in.
When I turn it on I get nothing
If I hold the power button down, I can see lights in the
back of the computer that are on, but when I let go of the
power button, nothing.
When I hold the power button down, the power button light
does not come on.
An help will be greatly appreciated mike

I cannot always get my computer to wake up by hitting a keyboard button. I will have to reboot is. Do I need to program in something? (Not to mention CTRL/ALT/DEL will not reboot my computer so I have to shut off and turn on again.)

Also, whenever my computer is off and I turn on again half the time it goes right into sleep mode. I have to use F8 while booting up and choosing Delete Restoration Data. Sometimes that does not even work.

I am also installing magic jack and apparently in sleep mode mj will not work. Can I program my computer to only go into sleep mode between say....10AM to 10PM?

Thanks - unfortunately I need some pretty detailed explanations and step by steps.
