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

Hi KnightCa,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I'm really sorry to hear that your Lenovo W520 goes into sleep mode even after it has been disabled in Power management.
 
Go to Control panel - - >Power Options - - >Change plan settings (Choose the Power plan that you have selected) - - >Change advanced power settings - - >Adjust the settings under sleep and display as shown below.
 

Also, try doing a windows update and reinstallation of Power manager in your system.
 
If the above said didn?t help, try doing a registry editing.
 
1. Open the Start Menu. 2. In the white line (Start Search) area, type regedit and press Enter. 3. If prompted, click on Continue in the prompt. 4. In regedit, go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\238C9FA8-0AAD-41ED-83F4-97BE242C8F20\7bc4a2f9-d8fc-4469-b07b-33eb785aaca0\DefaultPowerSchemeValues.

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
1: auto detect (analog input)
Cannot display this video mode
optimum resolution 1680 x 1050 60Hz

Sometime the first line instead says
2: Analog Input

The only way to get any video is to restart the system, which always came up correct from boot or reboot, just not from reawaken. If nothing was open when I put it to sleep, I can use the k... Read more

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.

Hey everyone,
So i hit sleep mode last night before bed, and have returned from uni to find my computer not booting. Powered on, but not booting. It was working fine last night.
When i power it on, all the fans start up normally, then a click, at which point BIOS would usually start. Instead, it powers down for a second, then powers up again a second time, and does nothing. Just sits running.
At no point do i get to BIOS,let alone windows. I dont get anything output on the screen at all. It just flashes the power light, which basically means there is no input coming from the PC.

Im running windows 7, 3.4Ghz intel dual core processor, 4GB RAM, ASUS P5Q-E motherboard 700 watt PSU, 8800GT graphics card, 3TB samsung HDD.

As i say, its been running flawlessly up until now, so sleep mode must have something to do with it. I have heard removing the CMOS battery could help, but i dont want to go diving onto the mobo without knowing what im doing.
Any help would be greatly appriciated.
Much love
-M

edit- im also aware this might be the wrong forum to be asking this, feel free to move it about if need be.

A:Sleep mode

Sounds like possibly a PSU, memory, or motherboard problem.

You can open the case and look for the round silver coin battery on the motherboard and use a screwdriver to pop it out and place it back in. This would be the bit about removing the CMOS battery.

I think your PSU is perhaps a trifle underpowered, not knowing the brand I'm not sure how reliable it is.

You can also try removing 2GB at a time of your RAM. If the computer boots when you have 2GB of RAM but not 3 or 4, then you have a bad memory stick.

I also wonder if there's a short somewhere on the motherboard. You can take a peek and see if any of the spacers between the board and the metal inside of the case are out of place.

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.

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.

I log on to my office computer with logmein and it shows the computer to be offline,
This is a windows 7 x64bit - a tower with off/on button in center of tower. when I go
in to office the power light is flashing and I simply tap it to start use - that's easy, but
right now I am at home recovering from surgery and cannon log on. I would appreciate
any suggestions. Thank you

A:Is my pc going into sleep mode

Yes. The flashing power light is a good indication that the computer is indeed sleeping.

Ask someone that is in the office to wake it up - then you can connect and set it to never sleep. Let us know if you need help changing those settings.

It has been a while since I have used LogMeIn. I do not recall if those at your office can see what you see on the computer screen while you work from home. Hopefully, there is an option that lets coworkers only see a locked screen.

A:Sleep Mode

Sleep mode is going into low power state mode. Check for details:http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/e...24dc111033.mspxThat is for Windows Vista but don't think there are any major changes in Windows 7.

I recently aquired a dell demension 4700 tower. It worked fine until the next morning when the modem was in sleep mode. I normally would clicked the space bar and the CPU wakes up, well so I thought. My CPU is not responding to any of the following; reboot, disconnect/reconnect all cords, tried holding differnt key while rebooting, and changed out monitor. I believe the CPU is in sleep mode because the light on the monitor starts with green and then turns yellow. HELP? I read up on how to disable sleep mode, the problem is I can't wake it up.

Hi,

I have had a similar problem, with a friends laptop, what I did was remove the bios battery for a few minutes. Put the battery back in, started it up again and bingo job sorted.

Hi Vistar,

You might go through this troubleshooting tutorial to see if it will help you. In your case, I would check to make sure that you have the Wake Up options turned off in your Network device. (Step 5)
