Powered USB hub stops laptop sleep mode

Question: Powered USB hub stops laptop sleep mode

This is not really a problem as such, but I would like to know why this happens if someone could enlighten me.

I have a powered USB hub attached to my Acer Laptop. When I leave this attached and put the laptop into sleep mode, Windows closes down OK but the fan and hard drive keep running. If I power down the hub before entering sleep mode the laptop goes normally into sleep mode. Can anyone explain why this happens?

Hi guys,

I'm running Windows 8 on an Asus S200e notebook. I'm about to go travelling and i've been advised that it'll be easier to charge all my tech using my notebook's USB slots as a central charger that I can plug my phone, iPod, camera into. However i'll be charging it while i'm asleep, where i'll also want my laptop to be in sleep mode.
I heard it is possible to charge things using the USB port while the laptop is in sleepmode/ off. I've tried to figure out how to do this but my notebook continues to shut the USB slots when put it into sleep mode.
Does anyone know how to configure the notebook to keep the USB slots powered?

Thanks!

Answer:Keep USB slots powered in sleep mode

Go to Search type devmgmt.msc right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager open Universal Serial Bus Controllers right click Each USB Root Hub/Properties/Power Management. Un-check Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. And Check Allow this device to wake the computer.

Hi, I have an older gateway laptop, with vista on it. The laptop says it charges fine, but once i power it up it makes somewhat of a screeching and a ringing noise, and stops charging. The laptop itself can be fully charged and die in soon to about 5 five minutes when unplugged, but that is usual. The main issue is, when the laptop is powerd down, its light that shows that it's chargine, or fully charged and plugged in, when i power the laptop, the charger just stops working, and does the screeching deal.

Have been having this problem for a while now.

Every so often, the headhphone jack on my laptop just stops working after hours and hours of the laptop being on.

The built-in speakers of the laptop work fine. What happens is that while the computer is in use (after some random amount of time), any hardware plugged into the headphone jack of the laptop will not playback sound. This includes headphones, speakers and the like. The sound device manager in control panel shows sound being output, and if the headphones/speakers are disconnected, the audio plays fine on the built-in speakers on the laptop.

I haven't been able to figure out what exactly causes this problem. I have tried resinstalling the driver several times. I am 100% sure it isn't the headphones of the speakers that I use as I use these speakers and headphones on many other devices (phone, tablet etc.)

The only way that this issue gets fixed is if the computer is shut down and then rebooted (a restart doesn't work, the computer has to literally lose power for the problem to be fixed).

It seems very intermittent and I'm not sure how to approach this problem

Any ideas?

Answer:Headphone Jack on Laptop Stops Working Until Laptop is Powered Off

One idea would be a look the power plan in use. If you are running with the default Balanced power plan you may be seeing that nterfere by conserving battery power temporarily turning the audio off being a constant drain. Another thought could be a result of the onboard audio chip itself getting too warm where the hardware protection circuit will then come in and deactivate all sound. That is usually seen as far as the cpu temp as well as other major components. The audio being onboard would also be monitored by the bios not so much by Windows.

The other possible cause of losing sound would be the headphone jack or the board end having a cold solder point getting warm and expanding just enough to break the connection until cooled off. The complete shutdown of power would tend to suggest a temp or regulation issue where either the power plan or temp monitoring would have to be watched. And one more thing would be setting the laptop on a fan cooled stand or effective notebook cooling pad to draw heat away from the unit if you are not already using one. Laptops are known to get quite warm with extended use since everything is packed into a tight space with the typical serious lack of air flow unlike the usual desktop with front, rear, and side or top case fans in use if not water cooled.

So I just got my thinkpad t450s, and i've noticed that when i have the speakers plugged in to the laptop and the machine goes to sleep the speaker emmitt a buzzing noise. I'm assuming this is a grounding issue, does anybody have any suggestions for a fix or if this is something that could cause other problems? Is this a situation where is should be getting a replacement?Thanks!

Answer:T450s powered speaker buzzing when laptop is in sleep

Hi Mblo,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Sounds to me like your new cable is acting like an antenna and you're picking up the static from there. 
 
Try connecting your speakers and computer at the same power outlet, with an extension cord. Keep the cable connected to your speaker, but plug them out of your computer. If you still get noise, the cable is the problem. 
 
I hope the above information helps.
 
Regards,
Shashi

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.

Answer: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.

I use my computer as HTPC, so I always use sleep mode. In last few days it wakes up through the nights and doesn't react for anything, so I need to shut it down by starter button. Then, I have to reset my BIOS, because if not, my PC starts, but doesn't react for anything too. I'm testing sleep mode now and I can see that after two-three times, PC starts waking up immediately after I try to sleep it and is totally dead as after night wakes.Last night, I've just shut my PC down and everything was good, but it works for years as HTPC, so sleep mode is much more comfortable.Do you have any ideas?

Hello everyone, I just purchased a new Dell Inspirion laptop about a week ago. Right out of the box it connected to wifi with no problems. I noticed the second day however that sometimes after it was in sleepmode(lid shut) it sometimes cannot connect to my router until I shut my computer down completely and restart. It can see the router, but it is unable to connect completely. I don't think it is the wifi card because the drivers are up to date and I can connect to an unsecured router in the area with no problems. It almost always works after a complete shutdown.

If anyone has some info or things to try it would be very appreciated.

Just bought Lenovo notebook with Windows 10 Home.

On my old VISTA laptop, when I put my computer in sleep mode and then woke it up, I could always view my connected MP3 player and its files.

When I do the same with my new notebook, I have to unplug and re-plug the usb connector in order to view the mp3 files.

I tried fixing by going into device manager, power management for the USB hubs, and unchecking the "allow this computer to turn off..." setting.

I alsodisabled this:
I appreciate help, thanks

Answer:Putting computer in sleep mode stops viewing my connected mp3 player

If you disable USB Selective Suspending and uncheck 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power', your MP3 shouldn't have any problems. Perhaps double check witch device you unchecked.

I have done the update to the firmware keyboard docker as advised in a thread on January 2014 but this has not helped the problem.
This computer is only 2 weeks old.

I have been to download site and updated all drivers and updates.
The computer works perfectly except for this problem.

When the tablet is asleep the white led is blinking, and when it is all works ok, but if the light for some reason is not blinking but permanently lit then it will not restart and I have to re-boot the tablet.

I have disabled the hibernation mode in options but still no help.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

I?m wondering if the option (within the BIOS) called Wake-Up on Keyboard is enabled.
To restore the operation of the computer from sleep mode, press the power button or any key on the keyboard dock for a short amount of time. But the keyboard keys can only be used if the mentioned option is enabled.

Note: when the notebook is in Sleep Mode, the power indicator will blink white. If the power indicator does not blink white, the notebook isn?t set to sleep mode!

Very strange issue here is happening here. When the laptop T410s is always off before it's docked, so once it's docked I press the power button and no image shows up on the external monitor.  I then open the lid of the T410s, press the power button on the laptop, quickly close the lid and it comes up.  I've tried different docking stations, power supplies and the issue still persisted.  I then tried another Lenovo T410 and it boots fine. Here's the kicker... When the T410s is not powered down while docked and only logged off, then undocked, and then powered down. When it's reseated into the dock and powered up it works fine. It then made me believe there was a Docking profile issue. I've removed the docking profiles and recreated them, since it that didn't work; I even set XP to allow us to manually choose whether it's docked or undocked.  This did not work. Is anyone else experiencing this or have the expertise on this subject? 

Answer:If laptop is powered off on dock, will not display image when powered back on.

I have a T410s with 2 external monitors that I always used. 1x24inch LCD connected using VGA to VGA and 1x26inch LCD connected using displayport to HDMI. It used to be fine until some intel grapics driver update a while back. So I come to believe is the driver fault and/or the internal graphic card lack of capacity. My solution is to setup the monitors the way I like is to change the BIOS to boot up from displayport, and when successful going into the desktop then disable the laptop LCD. Then connect the 2nd LCD, extend the desktop and setup the resolution. From that point on I must always boot up with VGA disconnect then after into desktop, plug in the VGA cable and it will show up fine. If I forget and left the displayport + VGA connected when I bootup, it will fail and I have to do the initial setup again. So something with the displayport/graphic card/graphic memory is making the T410s 'forget' or discard the displayport. or the 1900x1200 resolutions of 2x monitors overwhelm the graphics card memory and it had to made a choice or give up. Most of the time it just goes blank or flash on/off In your case, if you only have 1x external monitor you can just change the BIOS to bootup screen in VGA/Displayport/Dock and when in the dsektop, set to duplicate mode for both screens. Then download this utility called ultramon and use it to setup the extended display setting to your liking, save the profile on the desktop/startup folder. When your T410s bootup, int... Read more

Hello EightForums, I'm new here so please be easy on me :P
Alright so I installed Windows 8 the other day (a clean install from ISO and a legitimate copy). Everything has been running very well with the exception of one thing. When I close the lid of my laptop it goes into hibernation mode rather than sleep, I had no problem with this in Windows 7 and have tried to change it in the power options. I have tried setting them to default settings, this is basically a clean install so I don't think anything is preventing it from going to sleep. I've googled it, but I cannot find a suitable solution for me.
I really appreciate any help you guys can give me, thanks.

Using an ThinkPad T23 running XP Pro. My other ThinkPads (T21's) have Sleep Mode available through "Turn Off Computer" or when the lid is closed. The T23 does not have that option. And under Power Management in Control Panel, Sleep Mode is also not a selectable option. What to do to get Sleep Mode working? When viewing the "Advanced Tab" under "Power Options" in the Control Panel, the drop down dialog box with "When I close the lid of my portable computer" offers only one option - "Do Nothing". With the other laptops, the dialog box also shows "Sleep Mode" - and that's what I want to happen!I just downloaded and installed the Power Management Drivers, but it didn't have any effect on the problem described.

Iv had my hp laptop for 2-3 years now, its got windows 10, and just a few weeks ago it started going into sleep mode randomly and then i'd have to wait for it before i could turn it back on. Sleep and hibernation is both disabled on my laptop, and it cant
be overheating because it will happen sometimes even though my laptop has been of for a few days. I'll be on my laptop for say 15 minutes and then it will go off, but if i then turn it back on, it wont last 15 seconds before going off again! usually i have
to leave it a couple of weeks before i can actually use it again. I thought it might have been because of the amount of files and applications i had on my laptop but i deleted most of them and it keeps happening. I'd like to avoid reinstalling windows and
loosing all my work.
Im not sure if it could be related or not, but something happened to the charging port of my laptop and now even when its plugged in the charge doesnt go up, but it doesnt go down either, so i have to keep it on constant charge. Also, if you put any slight
kind of pressure around the keyboard/bottom of the laptop, then it will shut down completely and restart.
I do have insurance on my laptop and could just take it back to the store but i'd prefer not to be without it for the weeks it'd take to fix it. 
Thanks to anyone that can help

Try switching the laptop off with the Power Button and hold it down for about 2 minutes. This may get it to start up normally and then you need to go into your Power Options to make changes.

The computer will not enter sleep mode when closing the lid or selecting sleep in windows.  When I close the lid the monitor turns off, but the computer continues to run (battery dies in like 2 hours).  There is no way to turn the monitor back on once it enters this state.  I updated the bios to the latest version and it fixed the problem for 1 day.  Suddendly it is doing it again and I can't update the bios again as it is already the latest version.  Any thoughts? Running Windows 7

Hi Darf,

Please post your laptop brand name/model, and specs to the best of your knowledge. Since your system crashes, does the laptop get a BSOD? Would it be possible to post the BSOD error?

Hi, like the title says, my laptop crashes whenever it goes into sleep mode. If I close my laptop it's supposed to go into sleep mode, but when I close it it will just freeze and crash. After about 30 min of inactivity my computer is supposed to go into sleep mode. When it goes into sleep mode this way it still crashes and shuts down. I have no idea why it does it and it's pretty frustrating. If anyone could help me i'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks

I usually put my computer in sleep mode if I'll only be a few hours away and I rarely turn it off. Maybe once a week. However, lately it hasn't wanted to go on Sleep mode. Well, the screen goes dark, but I can still hear the fans running. I know Sleep mode leaves things running, but this is too much. Last time, my computer was burning up. I suspect it's hardware issues, but I wanted to take a crack at it here.

There are also other moments in which it is on Sleep mode and I try to wake it up again. I can hear the fans but the screen is lighting up. Sometimes I have to close the lid and open it again for the screen to light up. Would appreciate any help, please and thank you.

EDIT: The first issue doesn't happen often, but it's been happening a few times lately and I have to force quit (pressing the Power button) in order to power it off. Then I turn it on again and everything's loading up again. I just installed some Windows Updates just in case.

Answer:Laptop not accepting Sleep mode.

I think it's the video card fan. Modern video cards, fan speed is controlled by the video driver. Windows Safe Mode doesn't load the video driver, so the fan runs.

i purchased a 2nd hand laptop recently and when it arrived i booted it up to check it out but, i plugged in the cable and turned it on, the fans started and lights came on but the screen was blank there appears to be a light on the laptop that is next to
the sleep symbol, so i assume that the Laptop wakes up in sleep mode for some reason, i found a temporary solution by taking out the battery and putting it back in, that seems to resolve it.  the laptop is an MSI CX705MX, i was told the battery holds
a charge but every time the cable is unplugged the laptop seems to go back into sleep mode, as it appears to still be running but the screen is blank.
it is running window 7 Home Premium.

My HP laptop will shut down if left in sleep mode. It happens even when my laptop is plugged in. Its not a battery problem, as this laptop is only 8 months old and the battery holds a charge for a long time. This is what happens: the laptop will be in sleep mode, then the power led will stop blinking and turn on and the hardrive light will turn on. The fan will also speed up, but the screen will stay blank. This goes on for a few seconds, then the power led and the laptop shut of completely.

In the past, after putting the laptop into Sleep mode, some time later (hours) it would frequently "wake up" and stay on. After the laptop suffered a crash of its hard disk, which had to be replaced and Windows 7 reloaded, the problem has gotten worse. Now it almost always wakes from Sleep mode of its own accord, but when it does so the screen is blank and the computer is unresponsive. If I power it down and restart it, it doesn't start but instead the Caps Lock and Scroll LEDs blink on and off with nothing more happening. The only way I've found to restart it is to unplug the power supply and physically remove the battery for a few seconds before trying again. Any ideas as to what is wrong?

My laptop only charges when in sleep mode or when switched off. I have tested my charger properly and it is fine. When I charge my laptop when it is on, the charging area goes orange for a few seconds then white which is what should only happen when your laptop is fully charged. However my laptop does this even with 8% of battery left. It seems like the laptop always thinks it's fully charged when on. How do I fix this?

Hello all fellow techies,
I have just done two fresh installs on this SONY VAIO VGN-NS110e laptop and with Windows Vista Premium, but I can not get this laptop to go into safe mode!

When I press Start, and go to the shut down area, the word Sleep is greyed out.
I have installed most of the drivers off the sony website and I can not get it.
When I press the Power button while the computer is on (which usually sends it to safe mode), the computer brings up a screen that says the battery is not working properly and this will not ever go away until I reformat again. I know the battery is working properly there is just a driver or something I am missing.

How do I let this laptop "know" it's a laptop?
I am just trying to update the bios now

Hi all first time poster,
So I'm having a major problem that I can't seem to fix. When I close the lid of my laptop, put it into sleep mode, or put it into hibernation mode, the laptop basically shuts down. The power light flashes on and off, but when I reopen the lid or press the power button to turn it back on, the screen flashes grey and reboots.
What I have tried:
Changing all of the advanced power options
Resetting my laptop (to before the issue started occurring)
Restoring my laptop to factory settings
Redownloading windows 10
Disabling the UEFI (BIOS) setting that allows the computer to be turned off to save power
Updating the drivers that were suggested on the windows eight forums
Downloading the chipset driver from Asus
Downloading the ACHI Link Power Management and trying all the settings

What I've done in the command prompt:
sfc /scannow then Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
I also tried the chkdsk command but there were no problems found

When I started noticing the problem:
After I downloaded VMware's player and created a virtual computer with Ubuntu

I hope this description was detailed enough. As one could tell, I've tried quite a lot of different things to fix this issue but with no resolve. Thanks for the help in advance!

About a few hours ago, I folded my laptop shut to put it into sleep mode. I left the room for a bit, and came back to notice that I could still hear the fans running. The power light wasn't pulsing to indicate the computer was asleep, either. When I opened the computer, the screen wouldn't turn on, and the computer wouldn't respond to anything I did. All I could was do a force shut down and restart. I've had to do this three times now-the computer refuses to go fully into sleep mode. The only thing I suspect may be the culprit may be the updates I installed today.
Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2398632)

Hello there!
I'm trying to fix my friend's Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15iby.
He accidentally tripped over the USB cord that was connecting the laptop and his phone, and at that moment the laptop just went kaput (the phone is ok btw).
The power LED on the laptop just keeps blinking, the manual says that the blinking LED indicates that the laptop is in sleep mode.
When I connect the AC adapter the battery LED turns on, which is what it normally does.
Holding the power button for more than 5 sec turns it off.
Holding the power button for more than 5 sec, with the AC adapter plugged, in briefly turns it off, and then it goes back to being all blinky and stuff.
I opened up the laptop and have tried the following:
-disconnecting the battery and holding the power button for 30 sec
-clearing CMOS
-reseating the RAM stick
-pressing the NOVO button
Also the CPU gets hot when it stays in the sleep mode for a while.
I'm really scratching my head over here; it's a curious problem it seems
Thanks for your time

I had a problem with my laptop trying to recover from hibernate mode ("Your computer can't come out of hibernation. Status 0xc000009a") and on researching the issue I decided the hiberfil.sys file was probably corrupted.

So I used command prompt and typed "powercfg -h off" then did a disk cleanup (using CCleaner) then defragged the drive. Rebooted. Then re-enabled hibernate by typing "powercfg -h on".

Made sure all my power management settings were correct, and I had it set to hibernate when I close the lid of my laptop- but it goes into sleep mode.

Any ideas?

Answer:Laptop goes into Sleep mode, not Hibernate

I suggest opening a command prompt and running powercfg -availablesleepstates.

Make sure hibernate is not one of the unavailable options.

You can also try toggling the settings. Switch the lid close action to sleep, and then turn it back to hibernate.

Hi, I'm new here so I hope I don't leave important stuff out.

My Laptop is an HP 2000 Notebook PC, 64bit, 3GB RAM

I recently spilled water on my laptop around the speaker areas, power buttons, and upper key rows. The keyboard is working now, but one thing I noticed is that my laptop will not stay in sleep mode. I will press the button, and not even 2 seconds later it turns on again.

I don't know if there is something inside that got messed up, or if there are still parts that are wet. Now, it would make sense for me to rule out anything else it could be, but this only started happening after it got wet. I have searched on google for this and have found nothing similar.

Any help is appreciated, and I will provide more info if needed :-)
edit: I have found something else that is strange. When my battery died, upon start up the machine created a loud "alarm" type noise that was constant for a few seconds before booting up. This also happened when I brought it out of hibernation since I couldn't put it to sleep

Answer:HP Laptop will not stay in sleep mode

If the laptop is not fully dried out while unplugged, battery removed and power drained by holding the power button, then you may have a short as soon as the water shifts. After doing those things I would turn it upside down carefully and blow a hair dryer on low heat but high fan speed on the keys area.

As to sleep mode problems, these are almost always caused by display driver so update it now by enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) then installing all Important and Optional Windows Updates. If no newer display driver is provided along with the critical patches needed to make your hardware and software work better, check on the HP Support Downloads webpage for your model.

Other Sleep Mode Problems - Vista Forums cover almost everything to be gone over.

Keep in mind that HP is the worst in the industry for bloatware and useless duplicate utiltiies that interfere with better versions built into WIn7. So if you haven't already I'd consider a Clean Reinstall Windows 7 to go from worst to best if you follow the steps closely and stick with only the tools and methods given.

Sleep and hibernate modes don't work on my laptop.

What happens is when the laptop goes to sleep the screen goes black, it shuts down basically, but I can still hear the cooling fan spinning and my HDD working. The laptop becomes completely unresponsive, I can't get it out of sleep. I either have to hold the power button to force it to shut down or it simply powers down on its own after some time, maybe 20-30 minutes(with out the battery being completely drained). When I turn it on, during the booting it tells me that windows did not shut down correctly.

It happens whenever I try to make it sleep through Start or when I close the lid. I made a custom power plan so it doesn't go to sleep at all to avoid this problem when I go afk for a while. Though it's really annoying because when I take my laptop to university I have to turn it on and shut it down after every use. I can't close the lid or it will make the laptop enter sleep and then the problem will happen. This lengthens the time before I can start using my laptop and the time before I can close it because there is no standby mode.

I doubt this is a problem with power settings. Hybrid sleep is off and every other settings seems to be properly selected.

I don't know if this is a driver issue. I keep my video card's drives up to date. So the problem should had eventually went away after an install of a new one. Could be my LAN driver and my wireless card does loose connection and have issues with it's drivers not working... Read more

These were all related to a driver taking too long to respond. Best bet is that in your case it is Norton that is the culprit. Also of note, one crash was directly related to your VMNetSrv.sys
I would remove and replace Norton at least to test and update the below old drivers.

I have a dell E1505 that originally came with XP media center edition. I purchased windows 7 home premium and did a clean install of it. everything works fine except for 1 issue. when i press the power button, the laptop goes to sleep like it should. but later when i press the power button again to turn the laptop back on it has some problems. when i press it i see the screen that shows windows is resuming but then the screen just goes black. the screen is on but it is just black. then i have to hold the power button until it turns off and have to boot it up from the beginning. this only happens when i try to resume from sleep mode. does not happen if its shutdown and then i boot it up. i tried reinstalling the video card drivers several times and nothing. i never had that issue in XP. what can be done about this? thanks
 

Answer:laptop does not resume from sleep mode

Check the bios, see if you can change the type of sleep state it uses, see if the behavior continues.

Also what bios version is installed? if it is lower than A09, then there was a bios update for the ATI video, latest bios version is A17, which will include the ATI update. No guarantee this will fix the issue since Dell never certified the E1505 for W7.

I looked in the Windows directory and i do not have a Minidump file in there. I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T440. Any thoughts/assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

*My Laptop goes into Hybernate/sleep mode and will not wake up. I have to hold the power button till it powers down and then turn it on again. This can't be good for the computer. I have tried changing the sleep settings with no luck. I also have gone into "Edit Plan Settings" and clicked on "Restore default settings for this plan" as well as every other plan.

I just updated my laptop to 7 from vista 2 days ago. (today is 1/26/10)

*Also norton refuses to open up, I talked to a tech via chat message and did a remote session and it started to work last night-but this morning when I came in to turn on the laptop, and tried Norton it refuses to open again. It also has a notice saying I need to update it, when I go through the updat process it says it is up to date.


I dont know all the specs on my computer, but if you tell me how to get the specs I will post them.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop M505-4945, it came with Vista when I purchased it then I got windows 7 in the mail as a free upgrade.

I'm no computer Tech, but I am a fast learner.

Hi i have toshiba satellite p200, and this problem has just started occuring recently. Whether i shut the cover of my laptop or manually go to start and put it to sleep i can not get it to wake. After it puts itself to sleep "successfuly" i can hit every key on the key board or tap on the mouse pad and all it will do is start up to a black screen and stay there.... nothing else happens. its not a major problem just an annoying one it would just be nice to be able to shut my laptop when i leave for class and open when i return and have it wake up.

if any one can help please do ... microsofts help page didnt help and toshibas didnt either

Answer:Cant wake laptop from sleep mode

You mean STAND BY mode? It cannot wake up from STAND BY? Can you recall when this started?

If this is my case, I would definitely start with updating the chipset and video drivers (from Toshiba website) if this does not help, I will test my RAM and hard drive for any hardware errors. If hardware checks out OK, then I will surely consider fresh install of Vista. But then again, this is just my two cents.

Just recently, I noticed that my Yoga 710-11ISK Laptop (ideapad) is not entering sleep mode. When I select the sleep option, the laptop screen goes black for a moment before the start up menu appears. This is causing my battery to deplete pretty rapidly, especially since the only way I am able to turn it off is holding down the power button. Spring semester is starting soon so I really hope I can get this resolved before then. Any help would be awesome, thank you.

Obviously the keyboard keypress and/or mouse click can wake it up, but what other things? Mouse movement definitely doesn't wake it up.

I prefer to make it sleep rather than hibernate (hibernation is disabled, to save having a 32GB file saved each time). After choosing Win 7 Start menu then "Sleep", it will happily go into sleep mode. But then sometimes (not all the time), after finally getting to sleep and the fans go off and the illuminated keyboard goes off, it'll wait a second and then wake straight back up and show the windows fast login menu. I have to hold the power button for a second to put it back to sleep. Then it's 50/50 whether it'll wake itself up again. Sometimes I have go through this procedure 3 times to make it go to sleep. On other occasions it'll work first time.

I tried disabling the LAN adaptor's "wake on LAN" but that didn't make any difference.

Hi all first time poster,
So I'm having a major problem that I can't seem to fix. When I close the lid of my laptop, put it into sleep mode, or put it into hibernation mode, the laptop basically shuts down. The power light flashes on and off, but when I reopen the lid or press the power button to turn it back on, the screen flashes grey and reboots.
What I have tried:
Changing all of the advanced power options
Resetting my laptop (to before the issue started occurring)
Restoring my laptop to factory settings
Redownloading windows 10
Disabling the UEFI (BIOS) setting that allows the computer to be turned off to save power
Updating the drivers that were suggested on the windows eight forums
Downloading the chipset driver from Asus
Downloading the ACHI Link Power Management and trying all the settings

What I've done in the command prompt:
sfc /scannow then Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
I also tried the chkdsk command but there were no problems found

When I started noticing the problem:
After I downloaded VMware's player and created a virtual computer with Ubuntu

I hope this description was detailed enough. As one could tell, I've tried quite a lot of different things to fix this issue but with no resolve. Thanks for the help in advance!

Hello.
My Inspiron N5110 laptop has a weird issue.
At very rare times, my laptop shuts down after I put it on sleep mode.
I know when it's happening because the power light doesn't flash.
When I turn it on again I receive the Windows message that has recovered from an unexpected shutdown.
As far as I remember it happened 4-5 times.
All of the times I only had Firefox (with lots of tabs) running and nothing else.
By the way, my laptop had other issues in the past including, problems in the fan, -and since the day I bought it-, it had speakers and hard disk problems.
I got these parts replaced and they seem to be running in diagnostics with no errors (except for the fan which still makes weird loud noises, might have to replace it again).
If this also helps, my laptop is always plugged in.
It's very important for me to get it fixed because I am a student and don't want to lose anything important.
Thank you in advance.

Dell laptop with Windows 10 suddenly will not wake up out of sleep mode, nor hibernate mode.  Goes into sleep mode fine but no buttons will wake it up, and pressing the power button will only shut it down, so it must be rebooted.

Hi all.

Over the last week, my laptop has started to occasionally crash and switch off when it's in sleep mode - after this happens, it won't turn on when the power button is pushed, it'll only work again when it's plugged in. Once it's switched on again I get the black screen that tells me it wasn't shut down properly. I've followed several of the suggestions I've seen on various threads (the power settings upon closing lid are set at 'sleep', hybrid sleep is switched off, I keep it well ventilated, the drivers and BIOS are updated) and still it happens. I haven't done anything significantly different on the laptop, no new installations or updates that I can remember, it runs perfectly fine on battery power when it's awake, nothing else at all seems wrong. I only updated drivers and BIOS etc. after the first few times this happened.

I'm sure it's significant that the laptop is usually fine in sleep mode (even on battery power) and wakes up properly if it's been sat still in one place, and it only seems to crash while I'm moving it i.e. the power light is on when I pick the laptop up, I carry it to another room, set it down and the light has gone off. Also, in one instance after moving it I successfully woke the laptop from sleep, went to plug it in, and when I looked it again it had turned off.

It's still under warranty for another 60 days so I plan to take it in to be checked (I'm not smart enough to start taking apart a laptop, much less actually understand how to fix ... Read more

Answer:Laptop crashes during sleep mode

its a dell....'nuff said!

haha sorry couldn't resist!

more than likely the issue is a faulty harddrive does it knock off when you carry it normally? as in not in sleep mode?
best to just take it in and get a tech to explain it to you since its under warrenty, seems like an unusual problem only thing i can think of is a fragile drive
good luck and hopefully they will fix it or at least replace it.

I've had this problem now for about a month. Occasionally, when I leave my computer idle for several minutes (like over 20), it freezes. The fans stay on, the lights on the keyboard are lit, but the screen is blank, and I have to force restart it. My power settings are on power saver, so it dims the screen after 2 minutes, turns the screen of after 5, and goes to sleep after 15. In addition, I have the maximum CPU processor state set at 20% to keep it running cool. If I try and recreate the problem setting each setting to 1,2, and 3 minutes, it dims the display and goes to sleep just fine. In addition, it goes to sleep fine when I press the power button or close the laptop lid.

Things I've done to try and rectify the problem:

1) Updated the bios
2) Reset the power configuration settings using the command prompt
powercfg -restoredefaultschemes

3) Scanned for malware using Avira, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, SAS, and the system is clean

No device is wake armed except for the keyboard but I sure don't press anything (I'd have noticed and wouldn't be here).
When I put it to Sleep it sleeps for a second and then wakes up. If I try again, it may sleep without problems but suddenly after a while it wakes up again.

I used -lastwake and -devicequery wake_armed, "unarmed" everything and now it's like this ...

I and 2 other friends all bought refurbed T43 laptops about the same time. Mine has no issues, but on the other 2 T43's, cannot go into sleep mode unless I disable first COM PORT 1 , and then I have to also disable the 56K modem as well. Then sleep mode can be entered by either method. Both of his T43's worked fine the first couple of months without having to disable the com port and the modem. Any ideas what could have changed to start this issue? Not a big deal to disable those two devices, as they are not being used anyway, but he is concerned that he may have other issues because of this.. Only thing I know that he has added recently is external mouse on both of these machines, and I don't use the external mouse on mine..Thanks for any insight you can give me on this

I just got a brand new laptop with Windows Hello. It's very useful for logging in, but my laptop now goes to sleep every time I leave my desk. The red light next to the infrared camera blinks often when I'm using my laptop (which is also pretty annoying), and then if I get up, even for a few minutes (to grab a snack, notebook, etc.) my laptop goes to sleep. I'm pretty computer illiterate, but I suspect that the camera is still looking for me while I'm using my computer and then decides my laptop needs to sleep when it doesn't see my face anymore. Is there any way to change this? I like not having to use a password, but the red light and going to sleep is annoying, especially since I tend to get up from my desk a lot just to stretch. It also seems like having the camera on all the time would drain the battery pretty quickly. Am I way off base here?

I have an 'Acer Emachines E525' Laptop. I have 'Windows 7 Ultimate' 32 bit OS installed. Recently I reformatted my system installing Windows 7 on it. Since then I am having problem with sleep mode. I cannot recover from sleep mode even after 1) pressing boot button, 2) Pressing enter, 3) taping or moving fingers on mouse. When I press enter in the sleep mode, the system starts and blue light also starts blinking. But there is no display whatsoever.

My system actually hangs when I return back from sleep mode. None of the keyboard or mouse are working. Laser light of my mouse also does not blink. So its actually the system starting but but keyboard and mouse not working so I guess it cannot wake up or flash the display. Every time I have to hard boot my system by holding boot button for a while and then rebooting. I think it could be some settings needed to be change.

I tried updating all drivers. It also could be some driver conflict. Waiting for your reply. Thank you

I googled this problem but none of the solutions worked. Searched through windows seven forums but didn't found anything. Any help on this issue would be appreciated. Thanks a lot
 

Answer:Laptop doesn't recover from sleep mode!

Greetings, lugati.

Have you tried disabling hibernation/sleep?

To do so, go to Control Panel > Power Options. In the left pane, click 'Change when the computer sleeps'. For now, select 'Never' for every option there, and click 'Save changes'.

Now, leave your laptop alone for a period of time, and make sure it doesn't hibernate. If everything looks kosher, you can then go back into the power procedure and adjust, if you wish.

There are many issues with hibernation/sleep (both hardware and software related), and sometimes the culprits can be quite difficult to diagnose. I'd suggest disabling the sleep modes for troubleshooting, make sure there aren't other problems going on with the machine.

I have a a Portege R930. I am running a program that take 25-30% of the CPU for many hours. If I put the laptop into sleep mode, does the computation get suspended? If not, and it is still running, how does the CPU get cooled when the fan is turned off in sleep mode? Can the CPU overheat?

I *don't* want my many-hour program run to be interrupted by an overheating sensor. If I know that the program is suspended in sleep mode, I won't fear entering sleep mode. If not, then I will keep the laptop awake, and if I need to transport the laptop, I'll put it into hibernation.

Hello and thanks in advance for any help.

I'm using a laptop with Windows7 to pump video out to my LG 50-inch TV via HDMI cable (typically AVI files via the VLC player).

I have been doing this for 2 years now with the exact same hardware and it has worked wonderfully.

The problem I am having is new: right in the middle of a video the TV will go blank (IE standby/sleep mode) and then the laptop will follow suit. I then have to go hit a button on the laptop to wake it up and the video will resume. I then have to hit the "input" button on the TV to get it to resume. Then it works fine again for sometimes hours or sometimes only minutes.

In other words my TV is suddenly and inexplicably putting my laptop to sleep through the HDMI cable. This happens randomly and daily and never used to happen at all.

If I disconnect the HDMI cable the problem does not occur on the laptop. I have tried changing the HDMI cable and the HDMI port at the back of the TV to no avail. I have disabled standby on both the TV and the laptop to no avail.

Is there perhaps a windows setting that can override HDMI input from the TV? I am at a bit of a loss...

Thanks for any help. Thaigrr
