Torrent or other downloads possible in sleep mode??

Question: Torrent or other downloads possible in sleep mode??

Can anyone suggest the proper settings for power management for such kind of problem.Just for a simple reason of downloading a lot of electricity is wasted if the PC is kept running for long hours.

Preferred Solution: Torrent or other downloads possible in sleep mode??

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.)

Answer: Torrent or other downloads possible in sleep mode??

If there is any other solution for this then it will also be appreciated!!

I'm using Ralink RT5390R 802.11n WiFi Adapter and Windows 8, and after I use a torrent program like BT or utorrent (which works just fine) I am unable to put my computer to sleep. The screen turns black like it is about to go to sleep, but it keeps working really hard instead of going fully into sleep mode. Once this happens, the computer becomes totally unresponsive and I have to force shut down the laptop (HP Envy) by holding down the power button (otherwise it will just rev really high doing nothing forever - or until the battery dies).

I know it is my WiFi adapter that is causing the problem for two reasons: 1. this problem does not occur when I am able to use the torrent program with an ethernet cable (no WiFi) and 2. when i try to disable/re-enable the driver after using the program, the whole device manager window and the WiFi driver itself become totally unresponsive - at which point I have to restart the computer for the WiFi adapter to become functional again.

I have checked and changed the power settings, that was not the problem. I have also tried reinstalling the driver (though I may not have done that properly). I have searched a number of times for a solution to this problem, but have yet to see anyone else with the same problem. Maybe I just really suck at searching for solutions. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Answer:WiFi driver prevents my laptop PC from going to sleep mode after using torrent programI'm using Rali

I think your main problem stems from the use of Torrent, a very dodgy program under any circumstances.
I would advise you to stop using torrent and to Install/update and Run MalwareBytes Full Scan - delete or at least quarantine anything MalwareBytes finds.
Then re-start your PC.

So, as the title suggests, I was wondering if there was a way to make sleep mode not terminate(For lack of a better word) my network, as I'd love to download things overnight but... I have my sleep mode set to Never in the control panel though, but I use it occasionally through my keyboard(The moon key is a shortcut for Sleep).

Any way to allow sleep mode to not disable downloads?
Or... Is there a way to have a low power computer(I'd like the monitor to be off), but be able to finish downloading?

Answer:Any way to allow downloads while in sleep mode?

Hi Metamence,

Check out the following tutorial and see if it helps - it includes ways to enable or disable devices to awaken a computer from sleep mode: Power Options and Sleep Mode Problems.

Here's a tutorial on how to awaken a PC to perform a task scheduled in task scheduler: Task Scheduler - Wake Up Computer.

Here's a tutorial on how to change the return to sleep mode time for unattended tasks that awaken a PC from sleep mode: Sleep Return Timeout for Unattended Wake Up.

I'm not certain how to prevent the display from activating when the computer awakens from sleep mode along with everything else. I'm not entirely sure that's possible - though perhaps I simply don't know how to do it.

The solution for "turning off" the display only during a download (assuming it is a laptop and you can't just turn off the monitor by pushing the power button) is to create an icon to activate the screensaver upon pushing it and set the screensaver to blank Create Icons to Start the Screensaver on Windows 7 or Vista - How-To Geek - though not officially turned off it will use minimal power and will also be totally dark as if it were off. Alternatively, you could try the solution in the following article which actually creates an icon to shutoff the display using 3rd party software: Create a Shortcut or Hotkey to Turn Off the Monitor - How-To Geek. I do not know how you activate the monitor if you want to see it if it is shutdown using this method, but presumably the sofwar... Read more

I recently purchase a program and, before I can run it, I'm having to download a required patch from the manufacturer. Unfortunately, it's a gigantic file (over 2GB) and will require several hours even on a broadband connection.

Trouble is, if I let something download and I walk away and do other things, after a few minutes Windows Vista will automatically put the computer in a stand by or sleep mode, whichever one it is. If I return to the computer and move the mouse, the computer will wake up, but the download is interrupted. So, for instance, I can't let the download begin processing in the morning before leaving work because, halfway down the road, the download will be interrupted by sleep mode and when I eventually return home, I'll have to start over again from square one.

Is there ANY way to avoid this? Or am I basically required to be in front of the computer during the whole download duration?
 

Answer:Downloads interrupted by sleep mode

Any reason you can't go into the Power Options control panel and tell Windows to never go to sleep?

How do you guys do your bit torrent sownloads. Do you use a dedicated machine with its own hard drive? Or use your main machine and hard drive in it? I am trying to figure out how I should do my bit torrent downloads. I have been using a standalone machine with a 120gb hard drive and put it in my dmz. The problem is my 120gb is almost full and I would like to keep getting more stuff. I am thinking of mapping a drive on my file server but that scares me if I get a virus or something like that. So I was curious what do you guys do?
 

Answer:bit torrent downloads

I just have my main box run a torrent program with either upnp port mapping (if I'm in windows with utorrent) or with a forwarded port (if I'm in Linux with rtorrent), and that machine has 600 GB of storage (soon to be 920 GB ).

Someone I know wanted to set up a dedicated BT machine, but I thought that was kind of pointless.

From the rules:No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.BTW, most malware spread by using torrents.

Someone said somthing about utorrent haveing somekind of encryption option. also, what is the best port to use. I dont understand why a different port would be better than another, seems like if its going to download at a certain speed it will do it regardless of what port, right?

Answer:What is the best way to get fast torrent downloads?

Rules

5) Keep Things Legal
Any discussion, links, or information on hacking, cracking, serial numbers, pirating, warez, or any other illegal matters is not allowed. This includes talks of Emulators and Torrents. Discussion of legal torrents such as Linux distrobutions is fine. But anything that is copyrighted, pay per use or covered by any sort of copyright is forbidden. The links provide the information needed.

Torrent Announcement

Due to the increase in discussions about and involving torrents and torrenting, Tech-Forums is making a stand against it. While there is a lot of legal content available through BitTorrent protocols, these discussions are not about legal content.

Linux distributions are legal content. Games, movies, and other non-open source operating systems are not legal content.

This will also include euphemisms or allusions used in the place of "torrenting" and such.

It is regrettable that such action must be taken by the mod team, but Tech-Forums is a place of technological discussions and community, not a den of illegal activity.

1- Enabling UPNP: Open start--> control panel--> add or remove program--> add or remove windows components
then choose Networking Services and click details, choose UPnP user interface. (then the windows will setupo a driver for the router)

2- Using IP Patch: the windows default make you connect to 10 IP addresses only to protect your computer using this patch (in the file that i uploaded) you can increase this no. as you like 200 for example.
so you can enjoy more speed.

3- Adding Trackers list: the torrent always using one tracker, i brought a list with the best trackers you can copy it into your torrent file, by right click on the file that is in the torrent list then choose Properties and copy it in tracker list.

4- Upload rate must be 3KB/s: Limit your upload limit to 3KB/s, Because when the upload rate exceed 3KB/s the download rate decreases.

5- Using BT Engine: use this program that make connect to more Peers and disconnect the connections with errors.

6- Using Green health links: try using the links with more seeders.

to download the compressed file that i uploaded that including:
- Tracker list
- BT Engine program & Crack
- IP patch

Answer:Accelerate your torrent downloads

When I use uTorrent, on default everything on your page, havem't changed anything...the higher my upload is, the higher my DL reaches as well. They say torrents work best when you give close to what you receive. I was set at 60kb/s UL, and was downloading at 60-140kb/s DL.

I set my UL to 3kb/s. My DL is now a constant 18kb/s.

So...how does this work lol. I'm going back to what it was for now though.

All I must say is wow adsl duel channel puts cable to shame on bit torrent p2p downloads since its sends upload speed is around 10x faster anyways just switched and love it...plus it costs less. I know there is a way around this with a registy edit im sure to unlock the upload speed vs download limitations but heck oh well anyways just happy and costs 1/2 the price. Btw the download speed is just as fast as cable so its a win win situation.
 

Answer:ASDL vs Cable on torrent downloads

What's your DSL rated speeds? 3/768 seems to be most standard, unless you have FIOS.

I get 6/384, but I don't find that my upload speed really hinders my download speeds at all. I usually max out my downstream at about 800+ kBps even though I only upload at around 30 kBps.

And uncapping the modem is illegal, unless you want internet engineers and threats on your ass. With cable modems uncapping is basically impossible, since all of them now support DOCSIS, and the ISP frequently sends info packets telling the modem what speed it should be. No clue about DSL though.

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'm at the end of my wits here trying to figure out what is going on with my pc..

I have an overclocked pc, to 4.6 which has been rock stable.. sleep mode has worked fine.. i choose sleep and it stays asleep..

I decided to wipe my C drive on my samsung Evo ssd (no samsung software running).. and start clean.. i also tested this on my older test image, same issue..

If i choose sleep, it instantly comes back out of sleep (same with doing a shutdown too, though if i shutdown from bios no issue)..

I've tried everything.. i've tried viewing the wake events, nothing really there as a clue..
I've tried setting wake timers to disabled.. tried setting the nic card power management to off.. tried disabling the nic too.. saw that the mouse and keyboard are set to wake, set those to disabled for waking, no change.. tried pulling every usb from the machine.. still the same.

I've also tried updating via device manager various drivers, using the update button, some did update, but made no difference

Some of the commands i've used include:
powercfg -devicequery wake_armed
powercfg /requests

Also ran the sleepstudy option, but when it says woke up, cause is "unknown"
Again, this all worked fine about 10 days ago on the old OS, its the new one giving it fits (and technically my older test win 10 image too for some reason).

I went into the bios and disabled the overclock for the most part, basically took my ratio from 46 to 43 (i7-6700k).. same ... Read more

My SL500 (using Vista) has an intermittent problem, it will enter sleep mode, when you  press a key it exits sleep mode, but within a minute (sometimes longer) it will automatically re enter sleep mode, this will then continue indefinitely.If I restart the laptop the same issue will persist, although sometimes if I remove the battery and power lead once the laptop is shut down and then re connect the power and start it the sleep mode will sometimes function correctly (can't definitely say it always does).The problem is not constant, it has happened repeatedly during the last two days, but before these incidents there were no problems for months.I read that some laptops had issues with the processor overheating and this can cause the laptop to power down, although the lap top had only been on for 30 minutes before the problem started.I wondered if anybody else has had this issue or knows of a fix or knows of any software settings that require adjustment?ThanksJon

Hi, I'm having problems on a system with a gigabyte MA78GM-US2H and a amd 9850 quad. The computer works fine but after I install symantec I can no longer get the computer to go to sleep, It just reboots and starts up again. When I remove it, the computer can go to sleep again. I have updated all of the drivers and the mobo bios but the problem is still here. Any ideas on what to do next? or maybe is there a free virus program out there I could use instead? I would rather not have to buy something different if I can avoid it. Thanks
 

Answer:Problems with Symantec and sleep mode, computer reboots instead of going to sleep

What program do you mean by "Symantec?" Symantec makes a ton of different antivirus softwares, among other things. Most of them are a pain in the ass, and your computer is better off without them. I think a lot of the guys on this forum recommend NOD32. I typically recommend Trend Micro, but to be honest I don't use any AV on my own machine. Be smart with your surfing, don't open attachments, and run a firewall. Makes it pretty damn hard to get a virus!

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

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

Any idea why ?

Thanks

Answer:Auto sleep mode works but manual sleep does not

Hi,

Some softwares can stop the sleep request to work properly.

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

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

Also, try doing a windows update and reinstallation of Power manager in your system.
 
If the above said didn?t help, try doing a registry editing.
 
1. Open the Start Menu. 2. In the white line (Start Search) area, type regedit and press Enter. 3. If prompted, click on Continue in the prompt. 4.

My computer keeps shutting down after I put it into sleep mode, then when i start it back up it says that it shut down incorrectly. This does not happen all the time, only sporadically. Other times it will not go into sleep mode altogether! Interesting, I had this problem when I had Windows 7 but fixed it using this guide http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/63567-power-options-sleep-mode-problems.html

Answer:PC shutting down incorrectly/not going to sleep when put in sleep mode

I guess a lot of people are facing the same problem. My laptop also not shutting down, sleep or hibernating properly.
It just takes too long to hibernate, shutdown or even sleep. In my case, after sleep I cannot resume, it just a black screen and pressing anything doesn't do anything and I have to shutdown my laptop and restart again to use. So I set my laptop to never go to sleep or anything just so this doesn't happen.

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

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

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215.

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but I think this is NIC related.

Downloads in Flashget stop when windows 7 puts my monitor to sleep. I can line up downloads in Flashget and they work fine while I'm using the PC. However as soon as the monitor is put to sleep by Windows, the downloads stop. Moving the mouse brings the monitor to life and the downloads resume - however, the usually speed drops considerably (from 800kps to around 100kps) and does not improve unless I restart.

Originally I thought this was related to scheduled downloads. I set up a scheduled, off-peak download overnight and when I got up I'd find that the downloads had failed. However, I noticed the issue was happening whenever I downloaded and left the computer for a period of time.

Power settings are all on high. Harddrive/computer sleep is off. Monitor sleep is the only thing on (15 minutes). Ethernet controller has been set to not allow the computer to turn off (unchecked).

I'm using KIS2010 which may be blocking network access somehow. But disabling KIS and setting Flashget as trusted has no effect.

Is it possible that the ethernet is being powered down somehow when the monitor sleeps? Any additional settings under the Ethernet controller/power settings I can try?

Ethernet is onboard Marvell Yukon. Latest driver from Marvell installed.

Answer:Downloads stopping on monitor sleep

Interesting.

Does the act of switching the monitor off (power button) have a similar effect?

Is the problem entirely limited to Flashget downloads? In other words, does other network activity outside of Flashget continue unabated while your monitor is asleep? (I'm not clear on this point - was the scheduled task you tested a Flashget operation or something else?)

Does Flashget have any logging facilities which you could enable?

Does the same symptom happen in if you test in [safe mode + net]?

It's sufficiently weird to have the monitor's power state make any difference at all (unless the NIC was a USB job plugged into the side of the monitor ), but to have it affect only a single process would be very curious indeed.

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

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

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

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

Starting perhaps six or eight weeks ago it sometimes instead woke up with a message
1: auto detect (analog input)
Cannot display this video mode
optimum resolution 1680 x 1050 60Hz

Sometime the first line instead says
2: Analog Input

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

Hi there folks, I've recently been experiencing my R61 wake itself up from sleep. Weirder, it wakes itself up in presentation mode, so my resolution is much lower than my normal setup. I'm not sure what's going on here, but it is a bit of a hassle. Once awake, I am at the Windows XP login page and once I fingerswipe into my account, the display mode typically goes back to its normal settings. This is more of an inconvenience than anything. Does anyone have any insights? I've checked the display manager and I think everything is in order.  Thank you in advance!

I'm not sure how this happened, or just what the proper vocabulary really is, but here's my problem.

I very carefully direct and downloaded files to a subfolder (DownloadsTempMD) under My Documents on a Data drive.

I'd really very much prefer to be able to sort downloaded files by name, date, the usual Details format.

For some reason Windows 7 Professional x64 has elected to conclude that anything I download must be for my entertainment, ergo it must be sorted by Title, Contributing Artists, Album. This may be a great boon to some, but it is a PITA to me. If I've downloaded an installation file, I want the most recent file at the top of the display where I can find it.

Is there a way to turn off this 'feature' that reminds my way too much of 'Clippy.'

So I got a nice, big 26" monitor to serve double as a TV while I'm doing schoolwork at my desk.

The problem is, when I blow images up all the way, the tracks seem to separate. Video will eventually lag behind, or even freeze up and then fast forward to catch up, etc. It's distracting.

When I blow up video like this, I expect to see some some bars (depending on wide screen or not, native resolution,etc), plus a loss in overall quality and clarity but this seems odd to me.

Hardware: 260gtx (216), q6600, 4gb DDR2, 7200rpm HD with 16 or 32mb cache, and a 26" Planar with native resolution of 1920x1200 and a 60hz refresh rate.

Software: It's happened in every media player I've used, from WinAmp and WMP to Nero.

Examples:
Downloaded episodes of Dexter are 608x336, at 128kbs and (supposedly) 23 frames/second.
Downloaded episodes of Heroes are 608x352, at 128kbs and (supposedly) 23 frames/second.
Widescreen movies like 1408 come at 652x266, at 112kbs and (supposedly) 23 frames/second.
When I fire it up, everything runs fine for awhile until, eventually, the above problems start to creep in. Distracting any time I want to swap to full screen and watch from across the room.

Ok so my computer is really jacked up. Like the title says I cannot boot into safe mode, access Google or Youtube, and when I try to download something it is saved as Freecorder and when I try to open the file it asks for a program to use to open it with even when I should not need to open the file with another program. I read the prep guide and the only thing I could do was run the GMER scan because it was a zip file. My friend who normally helps with my computer problems tried starting my computer in safe mode it would only stay in safe mode for a few seconds before it restarted itself. I have tried running SpybotPortable and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to fix the problems with my computer, but that has not worked. Also sometimes when I click a link it will send me to one of three or four other sites. I would greatly appreciate some help with these problems.

Question: Sleep mode help

Have a newer Dell laptop and just put latest windows 10 on it. I have the screen set to sleep after 10 minutes, which it does. Problem is I cannot get it
to wake by moving mouse or hit enter key. That always worked before. I have to hold power button to shut down and restart.
Any ideas what it might be stopping it from waking??

Hi, Here's one option to check. From the Start Menu, select Settings, then Personalisation and then Lock Screen.  Near the bottom of this window, select Screen saver settings.  Make sure that the dropdown menu under the Screen saver heading is set to None ( if it already is, select another option and the select None again ) also remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen' if present.  Click Apply and Ok to save changes. Regards, DP-K

Answer:sleep mode

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

My daughters PC has gone into a perpetual sleep mode, even with hard power button off/on, completely unplugging the PC and waiting etc. It simply turns on into sleep mode and nothing will wake it. I'm not there so I'm having to get youngsters to mess with the hardware. This is a Win 7 PC with wireless mouse and wired USB KB. I've already tried to remove and replace the wireless mouse receiver into a different USB port to no avail.

How the heck does it stay in sleep mode without power!?! If I was there I'd pull the button battery as well to reset BIOS.

Supposedly this is WIN 7's fault with some setting. Once I get back control, I can try this hopefully

This is probably due to the Wake Timers. Wake Timers are a component that programmers can use to wake an idle system and peform a routine function.
Prior to Windows 7, the user had no control over this.
Windows 7 gives the user the option to disable or enable the sleep timers.
If you wish to change this setting.
Open Control Panel.
Select the All Control Panel Items option.
Select Power Options.
Click Change plan settings in the selected plan.
Click Change Advanced Power Settings.
Click the + sign next to Sleep.
Click the + sign next to Allow Wake Timers.
Select the Disable option.
Click Apply / OK.Click to expand...

Hi, It's worth checking if the display is just being turned off after a certain period of inactivity - you can check this as follows. Right click on an empty area of the Desktop and select Personalize.  Click the Screen saver link in the bottom right.  In the following window you can adjust the time before the screensaver kicks in the  'Wait' dropdown menu to a more reasonable time and remove the tick from the box next to 'On resume, display log-on screen if you don't wish to have to enter the password again after the time you set in the 'Wait' box'.  Click Apply, then Ok to save the setting change. Regards, DP-K

when it starts up with only the battery the screen automatically goes a faded black.What i mean is
i can vaguely see the cursor moving around the screen.
when the power cord is plugged in there is no issues.
 
I am thinking maybe the pc must be entering sleep mode when the pc starts up.
Will adjusting the power settings solve this or is there something else i might be missing.

I have a Dell laptop with Windows 10 on it. When it goes into sleep mode, if I swipe the touch pad within a few seconds it will come out of sleep mode. However if I'm not at the computer so that it is in sleep mode for a while, then when I swipe the touch to pad wake it up sometimes it will wake up but sometimes it won't. If it won't wake up then I have to use the power switch to shut it off and reboot it. Anybody know what's causing this and how to fix it?

Answer:Won't come out of sleep mode.

Does it wake up when you press the space bar or return key? The wake by mouse could have been changed by an update, because of being too sensitive.

I use sleep mode on my pc. How to close running program automatic, when I start sleep mod, like hibernate mod.I use shortcut for sleep mod.
Best regards

Answer:Sleep mode

So, you are using a shortcut to put your system in a sleep mode.
And you want a running program to be closed just before your system will get into a sleep mode?

Well, if you do not care about unsaved data (or if your program saves data automatically) I can write a cmd script for you, which upon its start will kill a particular PREDEFINED exe program or several programs running and after that it will put your system into a sleep or hibernation mod. Let me know if it will work for you.

Upon finishing my new PC, I decided to let Windows 7 update itself while I take a nap. After a half an hour I returned and rebooted the machine. Much to my horror, the integrated Ethernet had entirely ceased to function! Indeed, device manager no longer showed any LAN devices. Even more puzzling was the error message I received while trying to reinstall my motherboard's integrated LAN drivers:



The Realtek Network Controller was not found.
If Deep Sleep Mode is enabled Please Plug the Cable.Click to expand...

"Wait ... what?!", I immediately exclaimed aloud. A few Google searches later, the problem was made quite clear. Apparently, integrated devices on several motherboards tend not to wake up after Windows 7 goes into sleep mode. The precise cause eludes me, yet one easy solution is as follows:
Turn off the PC
Switch off the power switch at the back of the PC if it a desktop. Laptop owners simply unplug the power adapter.
Wait a few minutes while the capacitors lose their charge and the RAM clears.
Turn on the PC and verify that the LAN or whichever device was giving the deep sleep error now works. If not, then you could turn off the PC and remove the RAM for a minute. (Don't forget to touch the PSU before handling the RAM, though!)

Now that you've fixed the immediate issue, let's prevent it from happening again.
Open up Device Manager
Right click the device which formerly gave the error.

It might be that it's waking up because of an option in BIOS. Look for something like "wake on LAN" or "WOL" and switch that to off.

My power plan is balanced. My settings are turn off display 10 min. and go to sleep 25 min. I recently had a reinstall of my Windows 7 operating system. Prior thereto, I believe that the power button on my tower would read orange at some point when on. Now it is only blue when on. Is there an explanation for this?
