Inspirion 15 7000, no sleep when lid closed

Q: Inspirion 15 7000, no sleep when lid closed

I bought this, hooked it up to my monitor and keyboard when at my desk... close the lid and it goes to sleep. I checked forums, they assure me I can turn this off under power settings... but they of course show images of earlier Windows version. is this no longer available in Windows 10?

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.)

A: Inspirion 15 7000, no sleep when lid closed

So you went to settings-System-Power and Sleep-Additional Power Settings and changed what happens when you close the lid and it had no effect?
You might open an admin command prompt and type the command below and see what it shows about the Sleep option.
powercfg /a

The last 3 months the touch pad works for a few minutes and quits. i bought a wireless mouse to use,but it hangs up also. I called dell support several times and they use the same scripted approach.The last time i was on for three hours and 4 different people. the first guy got smart with me and i requested someone else. they want let you talk to their supervisor, they send you to one of their comrades to talk to.
I've read several post about the touch pad problem on this forum but, nothing seems to work. does anyone on here have a inspirion 15 7000 with touch pad problems?

I've read the posts and this really stinks.  My 7 month old laptop is starting to crack at the hinge.  I've seen similar issues with cheaper brands but I expected more from Dell.  Their warranty specifically excludes hinge issues.  
Buyer beware!  They WILL break and charge you to fix it!

Hello I recently purchased a New Inspirion 15 7000 Gaming Laptop with the 1050 ti and a 4k screen. I've been experiencing extreme mouse lag on the laptop. It only happens when I move the mouse off of an open window onto the desktop. Whenever it's on an application I see no problems but as soon as it's on the desktop it's hard for me to do anything. I do experience lag on open windows as well but it's far less often and doesn't last more than a few seconds. 

Anyone have this problem or know of any potential fixes?

Hi, I recently brought Dell 7567 and I exprienced big problem. When I do basic tasks fans are okay but when I start gaming it becomes a real mess. Fans are just too loud. CPU and GPU are at 50-60 degrees celsius which is preety low when gaming. But fans are at 5000 rpm all the time and they are really loud, more than 50 decibels. I tried to fix it via lot of fan speed programs but they simply dont work. I also tired to find option in bios but there is nothing there. Here is video to proof you. I wonder if there is way to lower fan speeds to reduce noise but temperatures will be higher but it doesnt matter to me. www.youtube.com/watch

A:Dell Inspirion 15 7000 Gaming (7567) Loud Fan Problems

It is by design that these Inspiron 15 gaming laptops with the powerful discrete Nvidia GPU will ramp up the fans to cool the GPU. The "Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 Usage and Troubleshooting Guide" makes no mention of "fan noise". This means that Dell does not see it as an issue. The "Dell Command Power Manager" was not tested on these Inspiron 15 gaming laptops. But you could try to install it and see if it will run. Although if gaming, I would not set it to "Quiet" under Thermal Management. Also, Dell never tested any 3rd party fan reduction software.

I have had the computer (Dell Inspirion 3650) a few weeks now and tried everything I can think of to solve the problem. I even contacted Dell Support and they state there is not an issue.

But there is an issue. Every time the computer goes into sleep mode the wireless usb mouse becomes erratic. If move it left it goes right and so on.

The computer came with a wired mouse so they will not warranty it using a wireless mouse.

The wireless mouse is Logitech M315. I have tried the usb thing in all of the usb ports.

I've done various different configurations in advanced power settings and I come up dry.

For the money I paid for this computer I would think it should work.

Please help! Thank you.

Hi all,

We have a new Dell Insp 15-3552, its about 2 months old or so. I have it attached to an extra monitor and leave it plugged in charging all day with the Laptop screen closed. I have noticed when I disconnect the HDMI chord and the poser chord and open the screen there are times when it will not re-awaken. The screen remains black even if I type on the keyboard. If I tap the power buttton it doesn't do anything either. I have also held the power button down for 5 seconds and nothing happens.

What I end up having to do is to hold the power button down 10 seconds and will hear it power down and then have to restart each time.

Is there something deffective or is there something I can do? I have checked sleep mode and I have the hard drive set to never.

thanks in advance for any help.

After few seconds/minutes the system is suddenly OK like nothing happend. This is not happening all the time and I was not able to see any pattern when this happens. What should I do to get rid of this? Thx for help.

Sometimes, maybe around half the time (I haven't counted), my laptop doesn't go to sleep when the lid is closed.  The fan keeps running and the Thinkpad logo red light stays on.  I know that the computer "registers" the lid closing, because the screen turns off and I get logged out.  This is very inconvenient because every time I close my laptop, I have to wait a minute to see if it properly went to sleep.  If this problem does occur, opening and closing the lid once more seems to put it to sleep.  I thought maybe it just took some time for the laptop to go to sleep, but my laptop was in my backpack today for a couple hours, logo light on and fan running and of course quite warm.  Did some searching but couldn't find a solution.  Is there a fix for this?  Thanks.

Hi!I have a bizzare issue with my Gen 1 X1 Yoga. The machine will not sleep when the lid is closed. I know this is not a software issue as holding a magnet above the sensor (in between the caps lock and shift key on the left keyboard bezel) sleeps the machine. Does anyone know where / what the magnet is thats meant to interact with this sensor? I assume it is meant to be positioned somewhere in the Screen bezel? if so does anyone know if this is something that could potentially be checked / serviced by a user or will i be bringing my machine to a repair centre.Cheers

There seem to be two times this happens. I close my laptop lid (set to sleep when closed) and then when I reopen it, it restarts and then tells me there was a blue screen. When I click on the option to look for solutions online, the pop-up window just closes and disappears. Other times it has happened when my computer was idle for a while, lid open (presumably it went to sleep), then returned to it and power button illuminated, but black screen. Nothing to do but power off - or if I close the lid for a while, it will then restart when reopened.
Seems totally random. Sometimes doesn't happen for days in a row, then twice a day.
Thanks for your help. Sorry I'm not super tech savvy.

A:BSOD - Usually When Lid is Closed, Maybe Sleep Problem

Welcome aboard, anahata.

Your problem seems to be with your usb port/hub. Is there anything connected in the laptop's USB ports when you close the lid? Say any external HDD or something else? If so, remove those, close the lid and follow if it crashas again.

Turn USB selective suspense on to narrow down the possibility to discriminate if it is being cause by the hardware, or the USB hub driver.

At the same time, try to upgrade your NEC Electronics USB 3.0 Host Driver, using the link provided in the page: Driver Reference Table - nusb3hub.sys.

HiI'm using a HP ENVY TouchSmart 15-j198ez Notebook PC running Windows 10 64bit.I have an external display, and it's the only display I need, hence, the laptop lid is always closed. The peripherals I use are:Microsoft Designer Mouse/Keyboard Wireless Kit - BluetoothWacom Intuos 4 Tablet - USBLogitech Rumblepad 2 Game Controlle - USB None of the above mentioned peripherals wake the laptop from sleep. And I am forced to open the lid everytime I need to use the laptop. Previously I was using a Logitech USB keyboard and a Logitech Wireless Mouse (wth USB dongle) - both were able to wake the laptop from sleep with no problem. Gave up on them because I needed the extra USB slots. I also have a Bluetooth speaker set, which led me to belive that the bluetooth connection of the laptop is closing whenever the laptop is going into sleep, since it starts searching for other devices to pair with. This would explain why the mouse and keyboard can't wake the laptop, even though I have checked the "Allow this device to wake computer from sleep" boxes, for both, in the Device Manager dialogue. Any solutions for this?I would also be happy if the tablet or gamepad would wake the laptop. But the "Allow this device to wake computer from sleep" check boxes are greyed out for these devices. Thanks in advance.

Hi,
first time here, I have about a week experience (pulled out some hair) with windows 8/8.1, but I consider myself pretty comfortable with Windows in general.

When my win8.1 laptop is in sleep mode, I can wake it with a mere touch of my external bluetooth k/b without any issues, as long as the lid is opened. If I close the lid, I can continue to use it as its connected to a big Samsung plasma tv. But if I let the laptop go to sleep (or put it to sleep myself thru the menu), I am unable to wake it back; I need to pull it out from a/v furniture, open the lid and press the power button.

Is this a win8 thing, an Acer Aspire thing, or worse it can't be done?
Anyone else able to wake from sleep their win8 laptop w/closed lid???

Hey hey, so the problem is i want to leave my laptop running when doing renders that take hours on end. I've disabled the sleep mode in every way that I know how to (see screen shots). When the lid is open it doesn't go to sleep, but when it's closed after about minutes it goes into sleep mode (all fans off etc).

This never happened with windows 7 and i've triesd programs like insomnia which haven't helped at all. Id really love to get to the bottom of this, otherwise I might have to reluctantly revert to windows 7

Anyone offering ideas would be much appreciated. Cheers

A:Unwanted sleep when laptop is closed

Hi safety1g,

FYI, I have seen this behavior before on a few Sony Vaio models, and each time it was referred back to Sony support, where they said the option to "change what the lid does when closed" is/was not supported in their power management scheme and there was no workaround for this issue. So, just consider this an FYI at this point; however, if you can't get your issue resolved quicky, I would spend 10 minutes on the phone with your laptop's manufacturing support group to see if they can confirm a similar issue.

Good luck,

I have an odd problem. I've noticed that when I close my XPS 13, it shuts down (as indicated by the annoying front LED) but then later on it will start back up while it's being transported. Sometimes I'll get home, take it out of the computer case, and it will be as hot as a thermal missile because it's been running.
I'm not sure why it would just randomly start up like that? I have the power options to "sleep" when lid is closed, as seen here: http://i.imgur.com/p0x1C86.png.
I don't believe I have malware because I have reset my computer to factory settings on multiple occasions and scanned with SpyBot and Windows Defender.
In Bios "Wake on LAN" is Disabled.
For the life of me I can't think what would be triggering this besides the NSA (I joke). Does this happen to anyone else? Did you find a fix for it? Was it a dell program? Or is there a faulty piece of hardware on this computer?
Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks :)

I purchased a Inspiron 17 7000 (7737) with Windows 8.0.
I changed the hard drive for a Crucial M500 900gigs and installed Windows 8.1 Pro. I installed all Dell drivers for 8.1 and I don't have any unknown devices.
My problem is one the laptop goes in sleep mode, I can't allways wake it up. Moving Wireless mouse or touching keyboard or mouse pad, or power button doesn't wake it up. Other times, just moving the mouse works well.
I  changed power setting to not go into sleep mode, only turn off the screen, but it happened again.
I know that Microsoft Update is proposing a new driver for the nvidia 750, but not sure if I should install it.

A:Inspiron 7737 (17 7000) sleep mode problem

I call Dell support and she explained that sleep mode is a state that last around 30 minutes and then after, it goes into deeper sleep mode. At such point, I have to press power button until the laptop turns off. Then restart the laptop. I argued that is like pulling the power cord on a desktop and opened documents won't be save. She said that Dell recommends saving before leaving the laptop unattended.
I disabled sleep mode for the laptop and screen, to fix the problem.
I said I was going to install Windows 8.1 and asked about the installation order for installing the drivers. She left for a moment and return saying to follow the order listed on the web site. I said where is that mentioned. She said to look at the list of available drivers and that would be the order to follow. I said, I don't want to argue with you but this is an alphabetical order, nothing else. She kept saying that was the order.
In reality, I knew that was't true nor logical. While installing the drivers, I got three drivers that failed until I updated the nvidia driver. But by Dell's knowledgeable technicians, "V" stand for video and last item to install. Seriously!
But the call was not a waste of time as I asked for the way both HD 4000 and Nvidia GPU works, since Windows use only the Intel HD 4000. She explained that base on needed performances, Windows use either one. That decision process is managed by software. I didn't get to point of testing that fact.

Hi all,
I was just wondering if you can advise on something.
My new laptop keeps waking itself from sleep in my bag. As far as I can tell, the screen comes on and does not turn off and the laptop stays on until it runs out of battery (about 9 hours). This causes the screen and laptop in general to get very hot, as it is in my bag and in a laptop sleeve.
I wondered if it was bad for the screen to get this hot? I know the components can handle it, otherwise the laptop would shut down. But I am worried about the screen.
It is the Asus UX303LA-R4338H. It has a LCD panel (matte, non-touch, if that makes a difference). Windows 8.1.
As for the waking up: I think it might have been waking after 3 hours to go in to hibernate, so I have turned off hibernation in power settings (but I am yet to try this latest change). I have no tasks scheduled to wake the laptop, all devices bar the keyboard aren't allowed to wake it, can't be woken by internet, etc. What is curious is that it when this happens it does not sleep after 15 minutes or turn off the display after 5 minutes, as per my settings. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
Summary:-
1. Is this bad for laptop screen/elsewhere on the laptop to be on, in a closed environment, and this hot for 9 hours?
2. Any further ideas why it might be turning on and then not sleeping after 15 minutes?
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

It's definitely not good for the battery. Getting hot in the bag isn't god either. If it was me I would do a full shut down instead of sleep mode.

However, I've lost work several times now as every time it goes to sleep, when it wakes up all of the apps have closed as if it shut down (the sleep light is blinking when it is asleep)! Is this normal for Windows 8 as I've never used it before and it certainly didn't do this in Windows 7?

Howdy folks, I did some quick searching and could not find an answers to my problem and thus am posting here. I have a X1 Carbon 3rd Gen (Type 20BS) with Windows 10 and over the past 2-3 months have noticed the following problem: Problem: After placing the computer into sleep mode via the start button and closing the lid the computer will randomly start back up. I will often open my pc after noticing how overheated it is and find that it came back on and for some reason the touchscreen has been typing and opening applications. Obviously this is very annoying and results in my computer draining its batter and random applications being opened. Any ideas on what may be causing this and how I can fix it?  Happy to provide driver details and any other diagnostics if you think it would help.  Thanks,Andy

I have the same problem, tried the aforementioned solutions, to no avail. I think this is a design flaw and no simple solution. I suspect some type of viltage control board has failed.It woukd be nice to know what the sikution is, even if it is too expensive to fix.

Hello. I know that this problem has been dissuced already here.My device is not a plain Yoga 900, but the(Yoga 900-13ISK2.Is there a bios update that will allow me to make sure that my computer stays sleeping while I move with it? From what I read, the problem seems to be that a key in the keyboard is being pressed and that wakes up the machine.  Thanks!    Doron

Printer is HP Inkjet
Laptop is VIAO
OS is Vista
The printer works fine after booting, however the printer does not print though the job show printing and the job cannot be deleted in these conditions:
1- the laptop has gone to sleep and is "revived" and then we try to print something local or from gmail or other online doc
2- the laptop is closed but not turned off and when it is reopened and "revived" - same problem

The only way then to make it print is to reboot the laptop - then and only then the print jobs start.

Any idea?

I purchased my Hp envy 360 laptop at Best Buy about a week ago. It was an open box purchase because It was in near perfect condition . I tryed charging it but it only charges when it is in sleep mode or either closed . When I plug it in while its in it has a white light and the battery days plugged in ; not charging . But when I close it there is a orange light and a couple hours later it's fully charged . I assumed I had a bad battery but I ran a battery test and it said my battery was fine . Because it charges when it's closed I assumed their was a setting I could just switch but i don't know what to do .

A:Computer only charges in sleep mode or closed

After the last automatic driver update the screen gets gray fuzzy after waking from sleep. Other people are also getting the same problem (see this forum). The problem seems to be happening only with this laptop in particular and, therefore, I ask Dell for help.
Please don't tell me to rollback the driver and edit the registry to stop automatic updates.
Rick.

Using a IBM Thinkpad connected to a 32in TV as a Monitor. The power settings already show that Do Nothing is already selected for both lugged in and battery, however when the lid is closed, it still goes to sleep. It feels like there is a simple fix but
I can think of one. Any help?

Basically, this started happening after I had to shut my computer down via the power button after Windows went unresponsive for 11 hours. After turning it back on the next day, it worked fine, but a couple hours later it started going to sleep while I was using it. I checked all of the power settings, including advanced, and all of them are set to "Never" and "Nothing", including what to do when the power button is pressed or the lid is closed. It still does this.

I checked the event viewer and found a Information level entry for Kernel-Power at the times it went to sleep. The general information for this was as follows (with everything moved to one column, because it formatted weirdly here):

The system is entering sleep.

Sleep Reason: Button or Lid

Log Name: System
Logged: 12/28/2016 11:34:05 AM
Source: Kernel-Power
Task Category: (64)
Event ID: 42
Keywords: (4)
Level: Information
Computer: BlakesLaptop-PC
User: N/A
OpCode: Info

This is from the first one, the others are pretty much the same.

There were no events listed at any level above Information at or around those times. All other entries around those times are to be expected when the computer goes to sleep and wakes back up.

This also seems to happen at about the same part of the day, from 10:30am to 12:00pm.

Another thing that I just found while typing ... Read more

I've had several calls with support on this issue and I'm getting conflicting answers (hardware issue to x360 does not have these features) and would love to hear from users alike. I use my laptop plugged in most of the times with external docking station, monitor, keyboard and mouse.  And I have my laptop lid closed so I can pretty much hide the laptop under my desk.  Windows 10 setting is fairly simple where I disabled "sleep" when lid closed.  Issue is that the sleep button does not work when the lid is closed.  I cannot put the computer to sleep or awake by pressing the button.  It does nothing. Also, when the laptop is sleeping (flashing white light on the sleep button) I cannot awake the laptop via external mouse or keyboard.  Nothing.  The only way to awake the laptop is to open the lid, which I have to remove the laptop from my desk slot to do and put it back in once it's awake.  I changed windows setting to allow awaking laptop via mouse/keyboard, disabled docking hub power saving, etc etc. The sleep button by the way works when the laptop is in tablet mode.  But still no external mouse/keyboard awake. Soooo.... 1. Is this issue isolated or do ALL Spectre x360 have the same limitation?2. If you have had this issue and got it fixed, please share your findings/experience.  Ideally, if the power button is disabled by design, then fine, but I would still like to awake the laptop by ...
