Power Options change on Boot/Wake Up

Question: Power Options change on Boot/Wake Up

Hi all

I recently clean re-installed Win7 Pro 64 and now the Power Options keep reverting to High Performance every time I re-boot and even on wake up. If I set it to a power plan every time it works fine that one time.

I didn't make any changes to hardware/bios from previous install. The only change is that I first installed XP x86 to a separate redundant HD to enable a legacy scanner for which no 64bit drivers are available and I only boot into XP on an occasional as and when basis. I didn't make any changes to Windows boot manager & can only boot into it from F8.

I also downloaded a legacy game from Steam which is running happily on Win7. I rapidly decided that I hate Steam so I set it not to run at startup, only play offline and kill all associated process after closing the game. Again, I'm not running the game on a daily basis so it's unlikely this is affecting this persistant behaviour.

Grateful for any ideas.

Ian

I have the stick 300 set up on my 55" living room TV. Using the Logitech K700 keyboard from my old now useless Revue Google TV.  I have done all the WIN10 updates, and did the BIOS update.Yes I had the no drives found scare after the BIOS updated, but load and save defaults in BIOS solved that quickly.  All is running smooth, It works well. Not having any wifi or other problems that some are having.  But there is one thing keeping this setup from being perfect. The fact that I have to walk over to the TV and reach behind it and feel for the button and turn on the stick 300.  I have read up allot on various "wake on----" possibilities and have expoerimented with some OS and BIOS settings to no avail. I would like to pick up the keyboard and push a power button to turn it on somehow.  










Solved!

Answer:Stick 300 remote wake / power on options

I have answered my own question!  I enabled auto power on after AC reapplied in BIOS. Then plugged the AC into a z-wave lamp module, part of my home automation system. I can toggle off the AC power from a remote control, and toggle it back on, the Stick 300 starts up.

Hi everyone, thanks for looking.
Im running into a particular problem that I cant seem to find the reasons or the settings.

I watch HBO GO (i have a valid subscription) on my Windows 7 Home laptop and use an HDMI cable to connect my TV.

Scenerio 1:
If I leave the close the lid power option on hibernate, I must leave the laptop open and, when I connect the HDMI the TV, it becomes my monitor and I view as the monitor and watch anything full screen no problem.

Scenerio 2:
I change the power option on the lid close to "do nothing". When the HDMI cable is hooked up, if the laptop is open it uses the laptop display, if its closed it displays through the HDMI/TV. This is perfect and exactly what I want.
I can watch as the monitor no problem HOWEVER, if I choose full screen, I get gray borders and the "Full Screen" is not full and just centered.

I can not for the life of me figure out why and Im going crazy.
Does anyone know why the power option would have an effect on this and what settings I could change?

Many Thanks in Advance!!!

Answer:External display settings change when Power options change?

Check to see what resolution your laptop's display is at, what the external TV resolution is when you connect it to your laptop, and MAYBE what resolution the videos you're watching are. This just sounds like a resolution issue. If the TV is at a larger resolution than your laptop's resolution, change the TV's resolution to the size your laptop is at. Then try watching a video to see what happens. Hope this helps.

Hi,

I manage a fleet of 200 linx 8 tablets all running win 10 home.

I need to issue a 'fix' that HIBERNATES the tablet rather than entering sleep when pressing the power button

I will need to do this programatically - bundled within an .exe that I'm building - so the solution would ideally be an import of a new reg key....

BUT what do I need to change and where?

I think whatever I do, I may also need to enable hibernation, and disable connected standby. Also, as it may sometimes be mains and sometimes battery powered, cover both power scenarios.

Apologies if I am repeating a previously asked question.

many thanks

Hello,

I am the administrator on my computer, yet I can't access the main customization options, such as power options, user accounts, system, personalization, or performance information.

I just want to have access to the things that I SHOULD have access to. I am the only one with an account on this computer.

As a side note: This computer came loaded with Vista and just recently I loaded Win7 onto it. I was the administrator on Vista, but I don't know if something got messed up in the process of switching to Win7? Maybe?

Answer:Power options change on their own

That is not a common problem, can you give us detail on how you make the change. I guess you go into CP, select power options, then the particular power plan that you want, and then change those settings. Is that correct?

Hi,
I've got a Toshiba A30-404 laptop. I would like to change my powermanagement in the Control Panel. If i open powermanagement i get the message; close powermanagement and open E-power management to change your poweroptions.

As soon as i move the cursor to the tabs of the powermanager, the tabs fade away and i can't change any of the options anymore. I read something about ACPI and BIOS. I would like to know how i can handle this problem?

Is there something i can download on the internet for this, maybe?

The Toshiba power saver is installed on nearly all Toshiba notebooks.
If this application was installed on the unit the Windows common power management is disabled.
In this case you have to use the Toshiba power saver for changing the power options.

Answer:Power Options > Change settings that are currently no availble

Have you installed any 3rd-part apps to control or display power settings? Or used group policy or regedit to alter power behaviour?






"*some settings are hidden or managed by your organisation" means ... that there's a non-standard registry setting. Whether this was set through group policy, a third party app or by the user themselves in Regedit can be difficult to track down.

Answer:Change boot options?

Well, if you're sure there's no trace of the Home installation, you can just edit the boot.ini file on the system partition (which is probably C). It's a hidden OS file, so you have to unhide special operating system files or something along those lines. It may also be read-only, so if you can't edit it, then that's the problem. But just open it with any text-editor, and remove the line that has the XP Home text, the whole line.

Hello. Thanks for the help yesterday. Got another question about dual booting. I have mostly run WinXP. But I did install Vista Home Premium and fooled around with it. But didn't like it much so uninstaled it. When I installed Win7 it must have found enough dregs to decide I wanted Dual Boot, even though I don't. In WinXP you just modify the boot.ini file. I don't see anything familier. I want to go straight to Win7.

Answer:How to change boot options.

So you want to remove XP from Boot Menu ? It would be better if we just disable it.We will be editing Boot Configuration Data using BCDEDIT tool. Warning : Make a backup of Boot Configuration Data (BCD) first. Improper use of this command line tool may render your computer un-bootable.To make a backup of BCD :1. Type cmd in Start Menu search box. Right-click on cmd.exe and select Run as administrator2. In command prompt type, bcdedit /export c:\backup. This would save your BCD to c:\backup.If later you want to restore BCD, type bcdedit /import c:\backup after booting from Windows 7 DVD.You can follow these steps to disable dual boot menu :1. Boot into Windows 7.2 . Open command prompt with admin privileges. To do this, click on Start Menu, type cmd in search box, right-click on cmd.exe and select Run as administrator.3. In the command prompt type these pressing Enter after each line :bcdedit /default {current}
bcdedit /timeout 0 This will set Windows 7 as default OS and set timeout to 0 seconds. So at boot yuor computer will boot into Windows 7 straight.4. Restart your computer.

I am trying to have my computer boot Linux by default, from an external hard drive, while my internal drive has Windows 10 on it. Unfortunately I cannot get it to work: Windows 10 boots automatically at every restart and cold start.

Steps I've taken so far:
The boot order I want is set and saved in BIOS. There's no uEFI on my computer.
Windows 10 fast startup option is disabled. I also disabled the hibernation option just in case.

Still, I can only get Linux to boot by going into BIOS every time and selecting the (already selected) external hard drive again. When I then try to mount the internal (Win 10) disk from within Linux, I get an error saying it cannot be mounted because Windows 10 is still using it.

Look for a setting in the BIOS that says something like "After AC Power Failure". If there it should have an option to boot automatically but I'd be very careful about doing that type of hard boot. Surges are a part of A/C power on. Servers in controlled environments are not susceptible to this problem generally but a home PC on a standard surge protector!!! Not me.

Hello,
I recently heve moved to the UK from the US. My PC was running on power converters to start until I could replace the power supply with a UK version. My first problem is that I burned up the power converter I was using. I ordered a replacement that would work with UK power. I replaced the power supply and have double checked all connections and started up my PC to get the error message "reboot and select proper boot device." I have tried checking the boot order in the bios and it is prioritizing my hard drive 1st. I have tried disabling the cd/dvd drive as well. I have tried removing the motherboard battery and reinstalling it and trying but besides telling me it needs a set up, the results are the same. I'm now in a pickle here as I am using a tablet to request help. I have no boot disc or method of burning one and I need to save/recover the software on the hard drive at the least though I really do prefer to make it all work like it was. None of my back ups will arrive for a few weeks. Any advice? My PC stats are on my user info. Thank you.

Answer:Reboot and select proper boot device after power change

At this point i would suggest double checking all the cable(s) going from the hard drive to the motherboard to see if something possibly came loose during shipping(even if it was packed well it still could happen). If that does not do anything; then its quite possible since you moved here to the u.s. from overseas that you need u.s. power supply as the electric grids in the u.s. are much different than overseas due to the voltage they operate on.

Answer:How to set Advanced options in Power Options (64 bit Ultimate)

Welcome to 7Forums!

With those options, you can set how much time windows will take an action after you are not taking any action
So if you set 3 minutes for turning off the screen or going to sleep and leave it alone it will scedule these action after 3 minutes.
I don't really understand the part where you explain that the timer stopps. I do not recommend setting the same values for both options under 'on battery' or 'plugged in' state.
I would just increase the 'on battery' / sleep time to 5 or 10 minutes and see if it works.

Hi there,

We've got 3 Dell precision towers 5810 that work great, except for a possible bios bug, which I can reproduce on all machines:

I'm using the installed NIC: Intel ethernet server adapter i210-t1.
Our computers go powerless every night (mains power) after a normal pc shutdown. Every morning, when the power is back on, I want to wake up all computers in our building with Wake On Lan (WOL) by sending a 'magic packet' over the network.
This normally works well if the machine has been switched on and off with the power button / windows shutdown. But when I unplug the machine (mains power), wait and plug in the mains power again, the computer does not respond to the WOL packet. (Maybe the PCI-E NIC does not get power on plugging in the mains of machine for the first time).
It works well on the integrated (motherboard) NIC. BIOS / power / sleep state settings seem to be ok.

I am begging for help as this problem is driving me insane! To start the story Windows 10 asked me to upgrade last year, and God I wish I didn't. I had nothing but problems with the OS, mainly down to it being unsupported for my notebook by HP. I Decided to roll back to Windows 8 and during the rollback, the notebook has failed catastrophically! 'Luckily' the recovery option kicked in, but this also failed and crashed mid recovery.  I am now left with the boot failing immediatley and showing a BCD error 0x0000034. (press esc for UEFI). Once in UEFI the only option that doesnt bring the same BCD error is the HP System Test. This works ok and the system passes all tests (including hard drive which though a lot of searching online is often the root cause of the above error) I want to enter the BIOS settings and set it to boot from USB in order to use my windows recovery USB, but pressing F11 or F10 goes straight to the Blue screen of death with the same error above! I am fairly proficient with computers and managed quite a few repairs etc, but this loop of blue screen with no conceivable boot option is driving me insane! Someone please help! Thanks in advance, Thebgb!

I want to share my experience with setting idle timers under Lenovo Power Manager or Windows Power Options, respectively. I noticed that every time the monitor just had dimmed or shut off according to my power savings options, it brightened up or turned on again only a few seconds later. I had seen the same behavior before using my Dell Latitude laptop, so I came up with the solution relatively quickly this time. The interference was caused by a Logitech wireless mouse, even though all drivers were installed correctly and the mouse was working flawlessly. Installing the Logitech SetPoint firmware solved the problem in both cases without further steps being necessary. Maybe this note will help other users facing the same issue. Good luck.

Hi,

Im new here to the forum because i have an odd issue and i can't find anything on the net so i thought i ask here.

I am on Windows 10 - 64 version 1607 build 14393.1358

The problem is that i don't have the options for processor power management anymore in power options. I don't know if this is necessary but its kinda odd.

The other thing is that i tried to install my AMD X370 chipset drivers and it worked only in device manager it keeps saying that i am using an driver from 2015 under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.

Any advice?

Thnx in advanced.

To post a screenshot please use the Insert Image icon to the left of the video icon above your post

I asked this question once before here, only on the video boards - got nowhere then, and I've changed almost all my hardware but the video card (and reinstalled with the upgrades) since then - so I'm giving it another whirl here.

My monitor won't power off consistently. It's an ingoing issue, and has lived through more than one complete format & reinstall, and more recently a motherboard/CPU swap, and now a new monitor. I ended up with a burn in my old monitor, and would love to avoid burning into this one too.

It cropped up sometime after I switched to LCD from CRT, but I'm not sure it's related to that - it didn't happen immediately with the switch.

Hi all, and thanks for helping.

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop PCG-GRX570, using XP Home. Some time ago, for no reason I can fathom, my Power Options Applet stopped offering me the chance to change Power Schemes settings! When I open it, the Power Schemes window is blue and I can't type anything into it, and there are no settings available to choose. I can change the Alarms, Power Meter, Advanced, and Hibernate settings, but can't set any Power Schemes. As a result I can only run full power which as you can guess drains the battery fast. Any ideas to repair this? Can I reinstall the Power Options Applet easily?

Best,
Jim

Want to change advanced power options with a few keyboard presses?

I like changing advanced power options all the time, mostly CPU throttle and brightness (the two most important factors in battery life). I used to have a separate power plan just for different CPU throttles, but that seemed a little inefficient (as did opening advanced power options under several layers of GUI). So I just finished writing up some batch scripts to change advanced power settings.

All you need to do is copy the attached files into the System32 folder (C:\Windows\System32\), for which you'll need to provide administrator privileges. Then, just press Win+R and type the name of the setting followed by the value. For example:

"bri 30" will change the screen brightness to 30%.
"maxp 50" will change the maximum CPU throttle to 50%.
"sleep 5" will change the time until sleep to 5 minutes.

Like so:

By the way, you can change the command just by changing the name of the file. Renaming "disp.bat" to "Display Brightness.bat" will let you type "Display Brightness 4" instead of "disp 4".

Let me know what you think. I can make one for each and every advanced power setting, all you gotta do is ask. Enjoy! (Don't mind giving me rep if you use this, I spent quite some time on this )

System32.zip

Answer:Useful tool for power enthusiasts on the go (advanced power options)

Well written! Rep given.

You might also find this batch file interesting. It deletes all file in the .tmp folder. You'll have to edit it in Notepad to change the xxx's to your user name though. After, just right click it and select run as administrator.

My Power Options Control Panel quit working pretty much, a few weeks ago. Seems it was always a little awry, but generally worked with reliability in that it turned off my monitor after a certain idleness period, and went automatically into Hibernate after a longer specified idleness. Now, it shuts the monitor off correctly, but won't go to Standby or Hibernate based on my specifications. But the PC can still go to Standby and Hibernate just fine when commanded to do so from Start Menu >>Turn Off Computer. I swear this problem began after I plugged in a different USB keyboard, a Saitek Eclipse II. So I reverted to my old USB keyboard, but the Power Options Control Panel never revived.

What I meant by "always a little awry" as opposed to now...

Now, if I define my desired specs and then use the Save As button and give the scheme a name, there is no error message; but when I leave and later reenter the control panel, that Saved scheme is not present in the drop-down menu. BTW, I deleted all but the main default entry, Home/Office Desk, while I was delving into this matter. That's nothing.

But it always had a bit of a quirk concerning the Save As. In the past, it would Save your scheme by name just fine. BUT, if you then changed the specs for a given scheme and try to Save it anew using the existing name, an error message window would pop up, entitled "Power Policy Manager - unable to set policy", with the bad news message, "Indicates ...

Hi,

I recently had graphics card problems and had to get my 8800GTS replaced. This took several weeks and now I'm running a 8800GT perfectly fine.

However, I've noticed my Power Options seem to be corrupt. Upon going into Power Options in the Control Panel, it says "Your power plan information isn't available."



I cannot understand why this has happened. I haven't touched any settings or anything to do with that. I have tried System Restore to an earlier point (before I got my new graphics card) and it didn't seem to help.

The help on the page says that registry keys may have become corrupt or been deleted. I'm not sure if this is the problem, but if it is how can I fix it? System Restore didn't help.

I would like to avoid doing a Repair with the Windows disc. I'm hoping there's an easier way to fix this problem. There has to be! I've been looking on Google and there is hardly anything on this problem. The very few people who do have it cannot seem to fix it, or used previous registry backups (which hasn't worked for me). There doesn't seem to be any resolutions from Microsoft at all.

I also tried using the "powercfg" commands in the command prompt, but didn't seem to have any luck there either.

I'll really appreciate any assistance! I cannot Hibernate or Sleep at the moment and it's a real inconvenience. I'd really like my Power Options back!

Thank you very much,

Domsy

Answer:Power Options Corrupt (power plan unavailable)

Well, I'm quite amazed not a single person has replied (funny how my other problem has gone unanswered too). Guess I must have very uncommon problems!

I'm glad to say I've managed to fix it though. As described on a website somewhere, someone else managed to fix it by restoring the registry keys associated with it.

I decided to export the ones on my mum's laptop, delete mine, and then import her's to mine. It seems to be working fine! All Power Options are back, I can change how my PC shuts down, and I can Sleep now! And this was all without a restart. I'm guessing I can Hibernate also; I'll find out when I want to turn my PC off later.

If anyone else has this problem and needs a copy of the registry keys, I can send you them (I believe they work regardless of the computer. I had concerns because it was a laptop, but it seems fine). I'd rather not post them publicly as I am not sure of the sensitivity of them.

I usually keep my trusty Yoga 3 Pro laptop beside me with the power cord plugged in at night in sleep mode when I close the lid. This morning when I opened the laptop to turn it on, nothing. Did not start/wake, no power LED either white or amber on side. There has been no trauma - water, dropped, etc - it just decided not to wake up this morning and no power LED is especially troublesome. I have tried to hold the power button in for an extended amount of time to see if it would reset itself, but nothing. My first troubleshooting will be to borrow a friend's known-to-be-working Yoga 3 power charger to see if my charger/power cord is defective/died. I doubt that's the problem, but that's the easy first thing to check. Since I bought the laptop from Lenovo in December 2015, I think the warranty is done, but not sure. (Any comments?) If the friend's charger does not power up the laptop, I plan to open up the laptop (first time for this particular laptop although I've opened up previous Thinkpads and other laptops literally hundreds of times) and disconnect the battery, push the power button for 20 seconds or so and see if there's a discharge that may correct the circuitry. I know I have done this successfully with older laptops. However, I know that Lenovo and other manufacturers are hard-wiring components and making it more difficult to work on. So here's my questions: Will a Yoga 3 Pro power on with a functioning power charger connected and the battery disconnected? I... Read more

Hello Hissnsid, and welcome to Eight Forums.

I'm sorry, but since a Microsoft account is tied to the email address, the password will always be the same for both. If you like, you can change the Microsoft account password though.

From Windows 98SE/2000/XP SP3 I always set my power settings as always on/never shut down (hard drive always on) with the exception of turn off display after 10 mins. Both my PCs are on for about 16-20 hrs each day and I always shut them down manually every night.

Now in Windows 7, I created a custom plan that basically more or less similar to the above, always on/never shut down/never sleep, turn off hard drive after 10000 mins (basically never off) except to turn off display after 10 mins.........well, last night I thought of trying out the "Balanced" (recommended) plan....and after 30 mins of inactivity, both my PC were off/shut down and I had to press the power/on buttons on both my PCs to bring them back (cause clicking the mouse/pressing any key on the KB wouldn't bring them back), is this normal or the way the Balanced plan supposed to work?

What's your or how you set your Power Options/Power plan settings on your Windows 7?

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Power Options/Power plan settings?

Balanced does turn your hdd and things off after 30 minutes(put it to sleep). Just go in there and change all the sleep things to never, or set them to 0 minutes. After you select your new plan, make sure your screensaver is on as well.

In Windows 7 and for the entire life of W10 I have used the command cmd.exe /c "exit" to awaken one of my computers at 0600 each morning. I hibernate the computer each evening when done using it. The computer would awaken at 0600 and stay awake.

Since installing v1703 the computer awakens but unless I perform some operation manually, returns to hibernation in a few minutes. The exact same thing happens if I have a program (Acronis True Image, for instance) wake and perform a backup from hibernation at a given time.

The power settings are as I used previously: Sleep in 30, Hybrid Sleep Off, Hibernate Never, Wake Timers Enabled. Note that the computer isn't just going to sleep because 30 minutes passes. It returns to hibernation as soon as the particular task completes.

Any ideas how to restore the pre-v1703 behavior? Is there a new setting someplace that I have missed?

Question: Wake on AC power?

Is it possible to set the netbook (Win8 64 bit) to go to sleep sometime after AC power is disconnected and to wake up immediately once the AC power is re-connected? Thanks!

Answer:Wake on AC power?

You could get it to sleep by setting the power options to sleep when battery is 95%.

Not sure about waking - you could schedule a task that woke the computer from sleep but only ran if AC power was found. It seems that you the minimum time the task can be scheduled is every 5 minutes so it is not really waking immediately.

Presumably you can't press the power button?

If I shutdown the machine for any period of time, I'll get the blank screen until I do a hard reset.

I have solved my laptop wakeup problem!! DELL 5737 17R
I'll try to explain what's happened.
After upgrading to Win8.1, windows update try to update the Inter HD Graphics driver preinstalled into dell systems. This video driver is *CRUCIAL* for suspend/Hibernate/LidClose mode to operate properly.
This is the signature of the update Win8.1 suggest to apply:
[x] - Intel Corporation - Graphics Adapter WDDM1.1, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.2, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.3 - Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
*** DO NOT APPLY THIS UPDATE *** !!!
If you do, this will conflict with AMD graphic adapter and result into nasty problems, including:
* Unable to restore from black screen if you close lid then reopen* Unable to properly hibernate* Unable to restore from LCD monitor switchoff for powersave
IF you see DELL site support, you can notice that the LATEST Intel HD video available is OLDER than the liveupdate installed (from microsoft).
Solution:
1. Remove/Uninstall all the AMD stuffs2. Reboot3. Remove the Intel HD Video driver and reinstall the older driver from DELL site4. Reboot (disconnect lan/network... *IMPORTANT*)5. Disable automatic LiveUpdate6. Reattach LAN/network7. Look for available update package, hide "Graphics Adapter WDDM1.1 xxxx"
You want now, after a final reboot, to say NO, NO, THANKS, to LiveUpdate of Intel Video Driver.
You have now a dell with working sleep/hibernate mode.When i close lid than reopen it, finally the LCD switch back on.Dont allow liveupdate to i... Read more

So I guess M$ updated my PC overnight & without me knowing. In the process they removed my custom option of "Move to" when I right click on folders & bring the option to copy/move folders & reset everything to default.

I added that option a few years ago & rearranged all the options in the file explorer a year ago & I have no idea on how to redo it all again.

I also want to option to get rid of "scan with Windows Defender" as well.
Google is useless & just shows links to rearranging the tiles in Windows 10. Can anyone help me point me to some tutorials?

Answer:Wake up to find out my Windows Explorer options "Move to" option gone

Hello,

Yeah, items often get reset back to default by a new build update. The tutorials below can help with some of this.

Is the Z570 close enough for me to post that I have the EXACT same problem as everyone here.  One tiny variation is that I didn't put it to sleep, it gave the 10% battery warning so I shut it down, and let it do so before shutting it, then plugged it in.  I too started with the whole thing appearing to run but no video, so had to force shutdown.  Reseated the battery and ding ding ding!  The laptop doesn't even recognize the charger now, and no other lights at this point.  If Z570 is not close enough, let me know and I'll make a new thread.  I've had this since the end of May, and after seeing the volume of the same problem, find it very unacceptable to have to pay for shipping.  Regretting ignoring the people that told me to go Toshiba.

I've got a V570 that is about a month old or maybe a little less. It ran no sweat all yesterday. I let it be at night after checking my emails one last time and I assumed it would just go to sleep as it normally does but I can't really confirm that it did as I also went to sleep. This morning I came in and attempted to wake it up and nothing happened. Power button LED was lit up along with some of the other standard lights... but no video, no fans coming on, nothing. So I assumed that maybe it crashed or locked up. I held the power button and it shut off. I waiting about 30 seconds and fired it back up. It whirred to life but still no video. So I waited... and waited... and still nothing. Again, I shut it down holding in the power button. Unplugged everything from it (USB wireless KB and Mouse, External monitor, Wacom USB drawing tablet) including the power cord. Flipped it over, popped out the battery, all looked fine, set the battery back in place. Flipped it over and hit the power button and nothing. The LEDs weren't even lighting up this time. So, I thought maybe the battery is a dead unit... I plugged it back in and still nothing. No LEDs, no fans, no nothing. Popped the battery out and plugged it in to power and the LEDs flash but all that happens when I hit the power button is what I'm guessing is the CPU fan comes on at full speed. I'm not sure if this laptop can be run without the battery installed when the power is plugged in though... My old HP allowed th... Read more

I live in a place where we have power shortages from time to time. I have my Dell desktop pc attached to a UPS and i have configured the pc to go to sleep after 5 minutes when on UPS. Is there anyway to wake up the pc automatically once the power is on? I have connected my UPS with USB cable to the pc, and the pc treats the UPS as a battery. I use this pc as a media centre so this feature is something i really need.
I am on Windows 7 Ultimate.

Thanks!

Answer:Wake the PC from sleep/hibernation when power comes up

With it being a Dell the option may very well be hidden (with no way to unhide it), but have a look in the bios under the Power options for anything relating to "restore on power loss". If it is there it is likely set to disabled (the default on most if not all motherboards), set it to enabled and that should do it.

Here's another Wake-on-LAN question. I need to turn on a t61p with BIOS 2.24 in a remote place when power goes off. Battery is not connected, so I that could restart machine remotely when it hangs due to a bad ambience (single event disturbances) using a power switch. When the system is shut down gracefully ,i.e. using shutdown option of my OS, WOL works just fine. However, it doesn't when power is disconected and then connected back again whilst the laptop is running. This behaviour is seen on either 2.24, or on the latest 2.27 BIOS versions. Not to mention 1.xx. How do I fix this "feature"?

This started two days ago. When waking up from sleep, the power cycles on and off about every 2-3 seconds. This is happening before any programs are restarted, and the screen is still dark. I first thought it was my new battery backup. I called APC, and they agreed that it had failed even thou the UPS was only 10 days old,. So I disconnected it, and plugged the computer into a dedicated outlet, removed the UPS monitoring software with Revo, and then cleaned the registry with CClean, with no effect. The only new programs I've loaded, were about 2 weeks ago I added itunes, and a Win update or 2, and the battery backup software, which has been removed.
Thanks in advance for your help.

P.S.
The computer is a Win 7 Pro machine about 3 months old. I7-2600, 16 GB ram, and boots from a SSD that only holds the OS, 4 TB of HD in raid 0. No mods or overclocking....Just as it came from Micro Center.

Just a quick question(might seem kinda newbie) for Win7.

Does setting your computer to "high performance" actually make your hardware "maximized". Or is "high performance" just a setting that doesnt make your monitor dim(or shut off) as fast or your computer go to sleep as fast. The same goes for the other two settings(power saver and balanced). Do the power plans actually increase or decrease your computers performance when running games, etc?

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Win 7 Power Options or HP Power Manager ??

HP Factory Install is the worst possible install of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilities which interfere with better versions built into Win7. That's why most tech enthusiasts won't even run such an install but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Everything needed is in the blue link to get and keep a perfect install just like a million others have done without a single complaint.

If you'd rather first try to clean it up you can try these steps to Clean Up Factory Bloatware
but HP is the worst of all brands for its bloatware so if you ever want to experience native perfect Win7 performance on that machine I'd do the reinstall.

Dear all
I'm trying to get wake on lan working on my new computer after a shutdown from windows. I'm using the following hardware/software:
Asrock X99 Extreme 4 with onboard Intel I218-V --> connected trough wired lan
Windows 10 EDU 64 bit
The wake on lan works when I put the system in hibernation or sleep. However on shutdown it doesn't work. On shutdown the lights on the ethernet connector of the motherboard are off. If I boot the system to the BIOS and shut down from there the lights are still on and the wake on lan works. So it seems like windows 10 is disabling the network card on shutdown.
I tried changing the following settings:
- in BIOS: turned on wake-on-Lan. and turned off Deep Sleep
- in windows in the divice manager at the power management tab of the I218-V I made sure to select: "wake on magic packet", "wake on pattern match", "wake on magic Packet from power off State".
- Disabled "fast start-up" from windows 10 as I found some people had problems with that combination.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make sure windows 10 does not disable the network card on shutdown so that wake on lan still works?

Answer:Wake on lan after power of not working (intel I218-V)

I am seeing the same thing on my Asus X99A II with the Intel I218-V but have not figured out the right combo of settings either, though I think M$ update has changed the Driver recently as it doesn't have the "fancy" properties Tab I had when I built the system now, and I think Allow the Computer to turn this device Off to save Power was checked again ( pretty sure I disabled it while TSing previously.)

currently on Driver 12.15.22.6 from M$ dated 4/5/2016

edit : reinstalled Intel Driver that came with my MB and it is version 12.13.17.7 .... 8/13/2015 and I have all the Fancy dialog boxes (DBX) back in the Properties Driver Tab again ...... I'll see if this makes a difference.

Hi!I have trouble finding all the places where power management settings for the network card can be modifyed (Windows, BIOS, Lenovo software...). In device manager my settings to allow Wake on LAN (Power management tab of the NIC) are overridden after every reboot, making Wake on LAN unusable (The checkbox 'Allow this device to wake up the computer' get automatically unchecked). In BIOS and Power manager everything is set to allow Wake on LAN, at least I think so, but there is obviously something I'm missing, so I'm asking for you help to find what. I've googled a lot, but with no results :-(. I have the same problem on SL500 and R61 running WinXP.

Answer:power management settings shutdown Wake on LAN

After the last Access Connections update the checkbox does not uncheck itself anymore. However WOL works only a few minutes after shutdown, after that I cannot wake the PC anymore using WOL. It is as if the PC turns off the NIC completely after some time being turned off.

Did the Power Management driver install properly? 1 through 6 sounds like some level of power management screwing up.If you want to install in UEFI mode, enable it in BIOS (aka UEFI), then reinstall Windows. You'll have to reformat your drive to GPT instead of MBR though.

Hi, FIrst of all I have not tried Wake on LAN on this S10 of mine, yet.  I don't even know if it will work or not.  Anyway, this is my main concern.  I'm planning to mount my S10 on the back of my monitor, I'll be putting a wire mesh kinda box that will hold it.  I will then hook the VGA monitor/audio cables to my S10.  I'll also be hooking my wireless Keyboard so it will look clean as possible.  With this setup, of course, the LCD lid will be closed and I'm thinking of ways on how to turn it on with the Lid closed.  I'm currently finding ways on how to do this?  I was hoping NOT to go to the rear of my monitor >> lift the S10 from the mesh box >> press the power button >> close the lid >> place it back to the mesh box mount. The wireless keyboard has a power on option (I have Logitech MK300) but does NOT work.  Would a Wired USB keyboard work? Fortunately, I have a deskop computer (which has its own monitor) that will sit beside my S10/Monitor.  The two computers (Desktop and S10) will run independently. What do you think guys?  What options can I go with?  Is my only hope Wake On LAN?  Oh yeah, it is even possible with the S10? Maybe there is a USB device or a hack that can be done (not voiding the warranty)? Thanks!

Hi, I have been researching on how to launch a simple command prompt command and then pipe the results to a text file whenever my laptop is woken from sleep.

I am using Task Scheduler and triggering the action based on
Log: System
Source: Power-Troubleshooter
Event ID: 1

However, the action isn't being triggered and when I checked Event Viewer, I realised that Power-Troubleshooter with an Event ID of 1 doesn't seem to be triggered on every 'wake from sleep' event. Is this supposed to be the case ?

Any alternatives to trigger the action will be greatly appreciatred.

Answer:Power-Troubleshooter not triggered on wake from sleep

I did this type of thing on Windows 7 years ago. And like you, I found that the Power-Troubleshooter event wasn't always getting generated.

IIRC, I had to trigger on a Kernel-Power event too. I just checked my Event Viewer, and it looks like Event ID 107 of Kernel-Power in the System log is generated whenever the system resumes from sleep. Try triggering on that event as well.

I haven't tried writing a script like this on Windows 10 yet though. Please let me know if it works. I may need to do it myself real soon.
