Any way to allow downloads while in sleep mode?

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

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?

Preferred Solution: Any way to allow downloads while 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: 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 sofware provides some method.

I also don't know how to activate sleep mode once the downloads are complete without risking entering sleep mode before they are finished (unless you go to Power Options and change the automatic timing so that you're certain the downloads will be done before the system automatically enters sleep mode) - but then you'll need to remember to change it back to normal the next day or it will have that prolonged period as your new setting (or add it as a setting when it was previously programmed to never enter sleep mode unless you specifically requested it).

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

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.

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

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

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?

HiI am trying to get support to fix my laptop, a Lenovo T430S. When I put my laptop to sleep, it crashes and doesn't recover from the sleep mode. I have updated most of the drivers involved with network, power management, and USB. I have copy and pasted the BSOD crash report - which shows TCPIP.SYS a isnd NTOSKRNL.EXE involved in a Drive_Power_State_Failure. I feel that some of the drivers are corrupted. Is there a way to restore the drivers to original settings without deleting files such as documents and programs? I do not have a restore point prior to this malfunction. So I have backup my computer with  windows backup software. Can I do a system restore (to original setting) and just recover my files from the backup? 101015-45287-01.dmp 10/10/2015 4:07:59 PM DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 0x0000009f 00000000`00000003 fffffa80`071d7a10 fffff800`00b9a3d8 fffffa80`0dcdf680 tcpip.sys tcpip.sys+186c10 x64 ntoskrnl.exe+735c0 C:\Windows\Minidump\101015-45287-01.dmp 4 15 7601 1,225,960 Thanks in advance!Sincerely,Jason

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.

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

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

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

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

Does anyone know what could be causing these problems and how to fix them? Also, does anyone know if there is another guide that has been like the one above, which includes the ideal settings for sleep for windows 10?

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.

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'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.

Hello Jack,

You might check using STEP SIX in the tutorial below as a guide to see if you have a "Power Management" tab to uncheck the "Allow to wake computer" option in it for you mouse in Device Manager.

If not, then you can use the STEP FIVE section to manually disable the mouse from waking up your computer.

Just be sure that you at least have the keyboard allowed to wake up the computer, or you will have to press the case power button to wake up your computer instead.

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.'

thanks

I am having an issue with my computer since I updated my iTunes and QuickTime and now anytime I try to open or run a program, it pulls up "view downloads" page and asks if I want to run or save the file. Neither option works as it simply re-opens another "view downloads" page and won't allow anything to run. I am operating in Safe Mode but same issue arises. See attached picture as anything I try to open goes to this page and keeps adding the same item over and over if you try to click run or save.

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.

Question: Sleep mode

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

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

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

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

Answer:Sleep mode

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

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

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

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

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

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 keeps interrupting scans, downloads, uploads, etc. The thing is, I don't want to stop my computer from ever going into sleep mode because I don't want it to just keep running if I'm not using it for anything.

Yea, but that is because I use a USB KVM. I just switch the KVM to the other computer and back and it wakes up. Maybe go to device manager and under USB device properties you can set it so that USB doesn't go into sleep mode. Maybe that will fix it.

I think and hope I'm in the right catagory.I was told that to use the sleep mode is better for mu PC and not real hard on the electric bill.If this is so can someone tell me exactly how to set up my sleep mode to operate right.I have been using it for the last week but I'm not sure if it is configured right.I have windows 98 SE,on a gateway computer with IE 6

Answer:sleep mode

Is there a reason you want to sleep instead of shutting down?To check on the sleep mode try Start-ControlPanel-Power Settings then look for something like sleep mode or hibernate (I forget now).  Set it for something like a minute or 10 and just watch and see what happens.  If it works like you think it should then change the time period and you're golden.I think hibernate takes place when you choose shut down unless there's a hibernate option on the shut down screen.

Question: Sleep Mode Win 10

Hello, I know this issue has been addressed before, but I am still not sure about sleep mode. My question is regarding updating downloads and installing them while win 10 is in sleep mode? I have read that Win 10 will wake up if there are any installations ready. Is that true? What about the downloads. Will win 10 wake up from sleep mode for downloads also?

Thank You!

Any thoughts?

Sounds like confusion between "sleep" and "hibernate".

Edit: Other thoughts could be BIOS, chipset software, etc. Might want to send your system information.

Starting last week my computer started to go into sleep mode all by itself.
I thought I pressed the sleep key on my keyboard and didn't do anything about it.

Now my computer goes to sleep without warning every.. 5 sec. ~ 5 minutes.

I didn't install any new hardware and I've scanned my computer for viruses, ad/spyware.

I tried switching keyboards and some other stuff but it didn't help at all..
Any help is appreciated.

Answer:Sleep mode

Hello Fiorello,

You might check through the items in this tutorial below to help see what may be waking your computer up. A common problem is having the "Allow to Wake Computer" option enabled for the Network adapter in it's "Power Management" properties settings in Device Manager.

If it's taking that long to go to sleep, then double check to make sure you have hibernate disabled to see if that helps.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Question: Sleep mode

PC doesn't stay in sleep mode. Have regulated power options to comply i.e 'put the computer to sleep in 15 minutes, hybrid sleep off, never hibernate and disable wake timers'. Please advise.

On my Vista laptop I was going to reboot it when I accidentally clicked on Sleep. It shut down & rather than googling to find out how to wake it up, I pulled the power cord out & removed the battery for a few seconds & plugged it back in & put the battery in & booted it up. I was unable to get to my home page in FF but could get in here to TS. Simple question, what happens when a laptop is put to sleep?
 

Answer:What does Sleep mode do?

Sleep mode saves the session to RAM (which doesn't need much power to run) and turns off pretty much everything else. USB power and RAM is still powered. The power light should be blinking.

Either press a mouse/key or press the power button, and it'll turn on super-quick to where you left off.

I 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.

when the computer comes out of sleep, there is a screen with a little square logo or picture and your name below it. Mine says "Brad locked". I don't want this screen to come up. After coming out of sleep mode, I want the computer to immediately go to the windows desktop.
How do you do that?

Answer:log in after sleep mode

Hello Sherwoodkiper,

You would need to change the Require a password on wakeup setting to No in your Power Options. The tutorial below can help show you how to if needed.

Question: s3 sleep mode...

Hi, im having trouble with s3 sleep mode. Windows will go to sleep on either the first or second manual attempt. However it will not come out of sleep when bittorrent is running prior to putting the computer to sleep. If bittorrent isnt running the comp may come out of standby but sometimes doesn't. If it doesn't I have to unpower the power supply then plug it back in. Then the computer starts up and says "windows is resuming". Here's a couple of things that I have tried already:

graphics card has latest driver.
bios has latest firmware.
bios is set for s3 sleep.

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:s3 sleep mode...

Question: IF IN SLEEP MODE?

Answer:IF IN SLEEP MODE?

@Holly2? You can control the sleep and display modes separately in Control Panel > icon > Power Options -- in many cases people do set the display to go off before the computer actually drops into sleep mode. And, yes -- sleeping computer will "blink" its power light. Depending on how you have it set up, you briefly click the power button to wake-up the computer or wiggle the mouse (external). When you see a Post that helps you,Inspires you, provides fresh insight,Or teaches you something new,Click the "Thumbs Up" on that Post. Click my Answer Accept as Solution to help others find Answers.
