I have a T510 with a Mini Dock Series 3. Everything works as expected ,except when using DisplayPort between the dock and my Dell monitor, the monitor will not go into power save. When connected directly using DisplayPort, the monitor goes into power save no problem, every time. This problem happens for shutdown, hibernate and sleep. The only time power save works properly is standby. Wake on LAN and the other usual suspects all seem to be set properly. Most often, after shutdown (etc,) the monitor displays "power save", goes blank for about 10 seconds, the comes back on, with "cable not connected" message (which means no power save). Has anyone else experienced this? Or, put another way, does anyone else have monitor power save working as expected with a Mini Dock Series 3?    













Solved!

Answer:Mini Dock Series 3 not putting monitor into power save

I have the same problem, only with DVI.  I have two monitors connected to my Series 3 Mini Dock, and neither go into powersave mode when the computer tells them to.  If I connect one by VGA (through the dock) then that one will go into PSM but the one connected by DVI will not. I read about another case where someone was having this problem with DisplayPort, and when the used DVI instead, that fixed it.  No such luck for me. I'm afraid of burning up my monitors...Very frustrating!

Answer:Tecra S10 - USB-power supply does't shut down on power save mode

Hi

You could check in the BIOS if the option called USB Sleep & Charge was enabled or disabled.

Change this setting and save up the changes. Then boot again.

Check if you can notice any improvements.

Answer:Power Save Mode

Check fans for any problems - it may be an overheating issue (but I doubt it).Try safe mode (press F8 at startup) and see if it works ok. If so, go to start, run, msconfig and see what you can disable there.

Question: Power Save Mode

Ok, i'm sure half of you have already seen enough threads about the power save mode problems, i've read each of those.

My problem is;

Old monitor breaks and i find a replacement, a dell monitor. I plugged it in and it worked fine, i then powered down the pc and left the monitor on stand-by. My other monitor normally switches itself off after being in standby for a short period.

I tried to boot up today and the monitor didn't display an image, so i pressed one of the colour settings on the monitor and i got the 'power save mode' text come up.

I've unplugged the monitor, checked the connection to the computer etc...


I've made no changes in the BIOS or control panel. I shutdown as normal, but left the screen in standby...

Any tips to fix this?

Answer:Power Save Mode

What is your graphics card ? on mother board, PCI, AGP , xpress ?

I have already seen this kind of strange behaviour et bios parameters was changed , why i do not know.
Try to put off and put on the battery of your PC in order to reset bios parameters.

My sisters computer is in Power Save Mode and the keyboard and mouse are not responding. I've unplugged everything, cleaned everything, tried different keyboards and a different mouse but still nothing. The computer was bought in 2004, does this mean she will need to get another one??
 

Answer:Power save mode

One thing you might check is the CMOS battery. That is the battery on the motherboard that is about the size of a quarter. Since the computer is that old, the battery may have lost its charge.

Question: Power Save Mode

Good morning,
I am experiencing a problem with a few systems that won't respond to the "power save mode" after implementing a Avocent Switchview box to it. The monitor is a 22" dell and the cpu is an HP using an Nvidia Quadro FX 4800 video card. I looked at the power options under the control panel but I think we have policies in place that won't allow us to make any changes. How do I resolve this? Thanks.

Answer:power save mode is on

The monitor isn't receiving a video signal from the tower. There's probably nothing wrong with the monitor. You need to determine what's wrong with the tower - bad CPU, bad motherboard, bad video card, bad power supply, etc. You listed zero info about your system so there's very little any of us can do to help.

Answer:Power Save Mode

Is this a laptop or desktop? Do you have the CD's to reinstall the operating system if needed? Does it do anything at all? How do you know power saver mode is the problem? Are you sure the hardware is OK? What make and model? Do you know anything about the componennts - RAM, hard drive, etc?

That usually means there is no display signal been sent to the screen or that the frequency of the signal sent from the desktop to the LCD is either too low or too high. When you boot up, does the screen have anything displayed.

I have a problem and I am not sure how to remedy it. I have a desktop running windows XP, I can't remember the specs and I am unable to get it to come out of power save mode to check them for you. I disconnected my dvd drive and temporarily connected it to an older computer to get it up and running. Upon re-connecting the drive to my XP machine, the computer will not come out of power save mode. I re-plugged everything back in, and turned the machine on. I can hear it running, but the monitor says the computer is in power save mode and to push a button or move the mouse to power it on. Nothing happens when I do this. I have tried a different monitor, with the same result. I am unable to enter the bios because all I have is a black screen. Any ideas as to what the problem is and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated. I have checked that I didn't knock loose any internal connections while I was in the machine. Thanks for you help in advance.

Question: Power Save Mode

I am having a computer problem that I have never seen before so i am wondering if someone can help me out with this. Whenever I start the machine after it has not been on for a while, it will automatically go into "power save mode" without even booting into windows. After about 5 or 6 times of booting the system, sometimes it will boot into windows, but it is very inconsistant. After I am able to boot into windows, I have no problem with the computer until i let it sit for a while (usually the next morning). I was able to call dell and have them send a power supply, but I am still getting the same problem. I have checked all of the BIOS settings and all of them seem to be on the right settings. I have also ran diagnostics and everything was clean. Anybody have a clue about what the problem might be?

Answer:Power Save Mode

How about some details on the machine, age, operating system, is it still under warranty, when this started, etc. Not enough information given as is.

I cannot use my mouse and when plugged in my keyboard does not work.

My monitor is a Dell, i have yet to install windows XP on my machine so there is no OS, I also cannot open my CD/DVD drive.

Any suggestions?, thanks.

Answer:Power save mode

I would guess that the monitor is not connected properly check all the cables - The main thing to check is if it is in the right port. A lot of computers have two monitor ports - one higher up - one lower down.

If there is another port lower down try that one.

If that doesn't work i would take the monitor to another computer and test it.

Question: Power Save Mode

After my computer sits for a while the moniter enters power save mode like it should but it won't come out of it unless I force restart my computer. I can't even press the power button once and wait for it to shut down properly, because it never will. I have to hold the button until it forcibly shuts down.

Then, after I start it back up and sign in to my profile, the screen goes black and it takes 1-2 minutes for the desktop to load.

I've tried searching on the internet and I've come up with "It's either the monitor or the graphics card, or possibly the cable connecting the 2." Well my moniter tests out fine. I bought a new cable. I bought a 250 dollar graphics card. It worked fine all day yesterday, but this morning it was stuck in power save mode and did the same song and dance all over again. Can anyone guess as to what's up? (I hope it's not hard drive related because I'm on my 3rd one for this computer as it is)

Answer:Power Save Mode

Try swapping your ram around.

Problem could also be with your graphics card using too much of the power supply, stick with the onboard vga for now.

Report back if swapping the ram around in the slots works or not.

Google provides a tonne of suggestions for your issue try searching "dell XPS 420 power save mode" and "power save mode"

how can i get my cpu or monitor out of power save mode? on the monitor it reads press any key or click the mouse to make it exit out of power safe mode, but for some reason my keyboard or mouse is not on and it's like stuck, can anyone help me PLEASE!!??

Answer:How to get your Cpu out of Power Save Mode?

That can sometimes happen if a screensaver "kicks in" first, followed by power-saving mode. Usually only happens with third-party screensavers, although on XP it can also happen with the built-in screensavers to. If you set a screensaver it's best not to set any power-saving features. Conversely, if you set power-saving features don't set a screensaver. The two can sometimes conflict with each other.

Try one of these:

Press the <Enter> key.

Turn off the PC by pressing and holding the power-on button for 5 seconds, release button when it turns off. Now press to turn it on again.

  I still unable to get the Sabre LC desktop computer out of save power mode, even after taking out the battery for 10 minutes. Any more suggestions? I do not have any disk with it to reboot it. If it is 128 MB would it take XP Professional, and can I copy that program to a floppy as I only have it on CD? Can it be transferred to floppy? and How? :-?

Answer:Power save mode

So, you've a rather old computer, right?  That seems to be a valid conclusion if it only has 128MB RAM.  Win XP won't work well on that computer.  It may run, but the performance would be terrible.  I wouldn't want to run Win XP on anything less than 256MB.  Your other question seems unbelievable.  You're asking whether an entire Win XP CD can be copied to a 1.44MB floppy disk.  Is that correct?  Sorry, but this question warrants a ROFLMAO sticker.  My Win XP CD has 488MB of data on it.  Does that answer your question?

I have a strange problem with my monitor (Dell P991). This morning when I turned on my computer (custom made: Asus A7V600, AMD 2700+, 2X512 GB Ram, 80GB Seagate HD, ATI 9200 Radeon 128MB) it displayed "monitor in power save mode activate with your computer". I disconnected the video cable, and the monitor self diagnosed OK. The power LED on the motherboard is green. The optical mouse red light does not come on, and I cannot see if the keyboard is detected. Restarting everything did not change the situation. I tried with two other monitors (a Samsung and a DigiView), each with its own signal cable. The Samsung did not display anything, and its on light near the switch kept blinking, as if in a power save mode. The DigiView displayed: "please check the signal cable). I know that these monitors are OK. So, the problem is with the communication between my computer and the monitors. I removed and reseated the video card and the Ram, but nothing changed. What might be the problem, and how should I proceed?

Thanks.

I have bought a new computer with no OS installed.

When I connect the dell monitor to the pc via VGA, the LED quickly changes colour from green to orange and says it is in power save mode.

It can't be the graphics card (I don't think), because the monitor said the same thing with another computer, but for some reason when I plugged the VGA into my laptop, it shows up fine on the monitor.

I have the Windows 7 install disc I just cannot install it as I cannot see what I am doing.

Answer:Monitor power save mode

Your monitor has a native resolution that should be used. You didn't state the make/model of your monitor, so there's no waying of anyone knowing what that setting should be. You also didn't list the make/model of your video card or PSU. In other words, you didn't provide enough info for anyone to be able to help.

Recently bought 4 months ago a card from Dell. It was an ATI Radeon x1600 512 MB card. Friend of mine who owns the exact same PC brand bought the very same card shortly after I did.

Problem is we both had this same odd power save mode problem occur recently and now I cannot do anything with my PC. Upon boot up of the computer there is no start up screen and the computer monitor power button is blinking off and on with a green light. When I check the status it says " the monitor is in power save mode, activate the computer to remove it". I can hear fans inside my computer being louder than usual ( not sure if its the video card fan or other).

Problem is the computer isnt responding, no light on the mouse or anything. Only thing I see is a green light on the towers power light but no activity lights at all. On the back of the computer I have a,b,c,d lights, the A and C are yellow which means the system detects it as a video card problem. I just find it a little odd that both of our original cards burnt out at the same time, and now these cards die out at the same time.

I am wondering if it has something to do with mcafee, because we recently both installed a new version of mcafee and we had no problems with the card until AFTER we installed this protection.

I have tried reseating the card and nothing, I have reconnected all cables and nothing as well. I can put in my old card that originally burnt out before I bought this one and it atleast has a picture.

Hello,

my setup is the following

NVIDIA GeForce 6600 - (2) 15" Monitors (Work Fine)
NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS - (2) Monitors (1) 20" also cloned to my 47inch TV.

The issue that i am having is that the 20" montior on the 6800 goes into power save mode and wont get out of it no matter what i do. Computer stays on an i able to work off my 47". The only way to get this monitor back on is to restart the machine.

This monitor will go to power save mode at random it doesnt matter if the machine has been on for a minute or for a day. it also doesnt matter if my 47" is on or off.

The other 2 15" are not affected and continue to function fine.

Any ideas?

After about an hour of computer usage (Just making that number up, I have no idea how long it usually takes since it's only done it twice tonight, once on Windows then again when I was using Linux), I am dual-booting and it doesn't matter if I'm on Linux or Windows, the monitor goes into the same mode as if you had left the pc idle for awhile when you have no screensaver. It just goes black and the light on the front goes from green to orange, I can still hear my music and I'm guessing keypresses are still working but I have to restart. WHAT ?

I have a Lenovoa X61 Tablet running Windows Vista.

When the power settings are set to "High Performance", no lock ups occur.

When the power settings are set to "Balanced" or "Power Saver", the computer will function for between 20 minutes and 2 hours. Somewhere in that time frame, here is what will eventually occur:

1.) I will be able to interact between the windows and move things around for a little while, but will be unable to save/open/close anything.
2.) Eventually the windows will stop moving and the screens will turn white, indicating they are "not responding"
3.) Eventually all I can do is move the mouse pointer and I am forced to hold down the power button to reboot.

If I run the resource monitor, I can predict when this is going to occur because:
1.) The "Disk" goes to 100% and stays there without ever going down
2.) All processes under "Disk" begin to shut down one by one until nothing is left. All the other categories seem to act totally normal.

If the laptop is on power save/balanced mode and is plugged in, this still occurs. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I put this in another forum but I'm pretty sure it was the wrong one so here is my problem.

Last night my power went out. Every time my power fails Vista will only start up in safe mode. If I try to start it normally it just goes right into "Power Save" mode. This has happened a handful of times, however it is usually an easy fix. I would just go into safe mode and run system restore and restore my system to a previous date. This however did not work last night. I can still boot up in safe mode. All of my files are still there. Can anyone help with this?

Hi, I didn't see any helpful topics on this.

But just recently my computer is stuck in "Power Save Mode".

Here's how it started:

I took out my ram to see the information about it, as I plan on buying more. I took out the video card since it's in the way of getting the ram in easily. So when that was all in order securely, I pressed the power button.

"Moniter is in power save mode activate using PC"

I could hear fans spinning inside the tower, but no beeps.

Last time this happened, I held down the "Insert" key, which fixed it last time. This time, it did nothing.

I tried leaving the battery out for over 8 hours, nothing.
Held the "Delete" key and power button.
Used an older video card.
Re-arranged ram.

Nothing.

I googled my problem, and I read something about a clear CMOS "jumpstarter" or something.

I'm positive I have this on my ASUS, because it says,
"CLRTC
1-2 normal
2-3 clear"

However I have NO idea what it looks like where it is or how it works.

I am nearly losing my mind on this! What should I do?!

Answer:Power Save Mode(lengthy)

Answer:Vista Save Power Mode

It's some sort of issue with the screen resolution/other graphics compatibility issues. Did you recently install something new graphics related? New graphics card? New monitor? Change resolution?

If you have the patience, try lowering your screen resolution and wait for the problem to happen just to see if it's a resolution issue.

After hooking up my LG Flatron L1920P for the first time, I'm running into some issues.
Any time I initiate a display settings change, either by adjusting resolution, refresh rate, or say, attempt to play Call of Duty 2, the monitor enters a "analog power save mode" and becomes unresponsive. It will also enter this if i'm not jogging the mouse or tapping a key at bootup. The system doesn't enter standy, as I can hear the sound playing in the background.
The normal power save mode, that it enters after 20 min, it will return from, but then, at that point its not adjusting the display settings.

note: this problem just evolved after hooking up the LCD after using a beast of a 21" CRT

My daughter has a Dell Dimension 1100, with a flat panel monitor.The whole system was switched off and all cables disconnected for weeks. When she switched it on again, the monitor is blank except for the following message when on of the panel button is pressed:"In Power Save Mode. Please press any button on the keyboard or move the mouse."But when she does press and button, or move the mouse, nothing happens.I have checked and re-checked the cables. The mouse and keyboard are connected. I have checked the self-test on the monitor: satisfactory.So any good ideas?

Answer:Unable to get out of Power Save Mode

I am presuming you have tried <F8> to start in Safe Mode?You don`t say whether the keyboard and mouse are wired (PS2/USB) or wireless. If they are wireless you could try using wired items - I suggest PS2 rather than USB in case the USB ports are disabled.Failing that I am a bit stuck unless you can use the <delete> button and get into the BIOS and try to check boot options there.Whether resetting the CMOS by removing the battery would help I doubt but I`m sure someone here will know.I think your best shot might be to put the drive into another PC and save everything you need and then do a reinstall.For the future, get your daughter to shut the PC down rather than leave it in Power Saving mode for a quick start up!!

Please go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Recently bought 4 months ago a card from Dell. It was an ATI Radeon x1600 512 MB card. Friend of mine who owns the exact same PC brand bought the very same card shortly after I did.

Problem is we both had this same odd power save mode problem occur recently and now I cannot do anything with my PC. Upon boot up of the computer there is no start up screen and the computer monitor power button is blinking off and on with a green light. When I check the status it says " the monitor is in power save mode, activate the computer to remove it".

Problem is the computer isnt responding, no light on the mouse or anything. Only thing I see is a green light on the towers power light but no activity lights at all. On the back of the computer I have a,b,c,d lights, the A and C are yellow which means the system detects it as a video card problem. I just find it a little odd that both of our original cards burnt out at the same time, and now these cards die out at the same time.

I am wondering if it has something to do with mcafee, because we recently both installed a new version of mcafee and we had no problems with the card until AFTER we installed this protection.

I have tried reseating the card and nothing, I have reconnected all cables and nothing as well. I can put in my old card that originally burnt out before I bought this one and it atleast has a picture.

I doubt it has anything to do with McAfee. Do you have the newest drivers for your card? Try downloading annewer or at least different one from the ATI web site. Or use the old card to boot and change the power save mode, then uninstall the old and install the new. I have found that if you don't uninstall the old card before installing the new, you can get some weird issues.

Answer:Power Save Mode problem!

If it appears to be 'stuck' in a power save mode, hold down the power button for 8-10seconds and that should power it off, then unplug the power cord (if it's a laptop, remove the battery too). You can also use the main power switch on the power supply on the back of the tower (however, not all PCs have a switch on the power supply). Let it sit like that for a few minutes, then plug in and power up. Then go to the BIOS and look for the power settings and change them to suit your needs. Once Windows is installed, you can change those power settings too. Personally, I'd recommend disabling 'Hibernation' mainly because of the problems I've seen caused by it. Besides, it takes almost as long to come out of hibernation as it does to power up and boot to the desktop, so I see no reason why someone would use hibernation over simply powering off...

EDIT- I just re-read your post, and it appears that the 'Power Save Mode' message you're getting is coming from the monitor and NOT from the PC. Anyway, try the things I posted above and see if that works. If not, unplug the power cord from the PC, open the case and make sure that nothing came loose while you were in there. Double check all data and power cables and be sure they are firmly seated. Then check all the add-on cards and memory sticks and be sure they are firmly seated and completely inserted in their slots. Check the back of the PC and make sure the monitor, keyboard, and mous... Read more

Some time back while fiddling in the BIOS (AMI) I came across an entry in the opening screen saying Load high performance defaults. Having had a number of glasses of plonk & in a moment of complete madness I pressed enter I immediately lost all video output from the monitor, the PC still made the right noises during boot but throughout, absolutely no display was shown on screen, not even the BIOS screen.The monitor was in power save mode. To resolve this because I couldn't?t find the JBAT jumper to discharge the BIOS I removed the battery for 10 minutes refitted it, turned on the PC, hit delete, got into the BIOS and was able then to reset to the original setting with no further problems with the display. My question, can someone please expand on what happened, to explain why or how I managed to loose the video? The reason I now ask, is a friends done what seems to be the same, but finds it hard to believe that changing this setting could affect the video out. __________________MSI KT8 NEO-FIS2RAMI BIOS A6702VE5 V1.5B1 042104AMD 64 3400+Windows XP Home, SP1.512 DDR (PC3200) 2x256 Sony 8x DVD+RWSony 52x24x52 CDRWRaid-0 2x160 GBRadeon AIW 9800SE 128mb512 ADSLA Black boc a few fan'soh, and a monitor, keyboard, & a mouse.

Answer:What caused monitor power save mode

I did a similar thing last week with one of my PC's to see what difference it would make. Similar terminal result, however after BIOS did its thing I was left with a black screen and flashing cursor in the top left corner. It didn't even try to boot to windows. I quickly put things back as they were and all is working now. Can only guess that the result achieved by selecting the high performance settings varies depending on the other hardware installed. I suggest you go to the web page for the manufacturer of your motherboard for an explanation of this setting.

Problem:
After I got home from a one month long vacation, the problem started happening. I turned on the computer and everything was fine, I started a game and played for a while, until I got sudden FPS problems, the game would drop to maybe 1-4 FPS and freeze for a few seconds, then go back to the low FPS amount.

I minimized the game and brought up the process manager, I noticed there was 100% CPU usage, but it immediately went back to normal. When I brought the game back up, the CPU also went back up. After a few minutes of doing the same, it started happening without the game being on. I exited all the programs I was running, and saw that the processes hogging the CPU were mainly "services.exe", "csrss.exe" and "System", all ran by "System".

After a few minutes of this, the screen went black and the power button on the monitor swapped it's color to orange. I hit a button on the monitor, and a message popped up saying "In Power Save Mode, hit any button..." etc. No buttons worked. Although the monitor appeared as the computer was off, the lights on the computer were still flashing, and no keyboard buttons worked (Numlock light was still on, but I couldn't turn it off, and no button would get the screen out of power save mode).

This now happens 15-45 minutes after I've started my computer, it seems to happen faster if I play a game. I've tried updating my video card drivers, deleting a few registry entries, running ... Read more

So about a week now I lost my dual monitor (2-Dell 1908FB monitors) capability. This is a company laptop (Dell Latitude D630 NVIDIA video card connected through a docking station and output to VGA and DVI) and they freely install updates and patches at will with no control from me, not sure if that is what caused it but one day it worked fine and the next thing i know i lose the DVI signal. I went through all the troubleshooting the cables, docking station, and monitor; conclusion was it was the DVI signal was asleep since the computer and monitor were giving me indications that they were being detected by the other but the monitor was still going to sleep. In all my searching I find a lot of people with the same issue but very few solutions (not sure if people figure it out and don't report back???)

...to get on with it. This is what has worked for me, so far...somewhere i came across a file "56.72_winxp2k_english_whql.exe", unfortunetly i don't remember where i found the file. I ran this, it appeared to remove my NVIDIA drivers and restore it to windows xp default video drivers. After that I went to DELL's website downloaded the most recent video files and installed them. It appears to work now, but everytime i think i have it it likes to prove me wrong...in a way this post is a way to tempt fate.

I would like to add that i did try and install the latest drivers before running the file i mentioned earlier and it still didn't work, so removing... Read more

Answer:DVI monitor intermittently in power save mode.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

The file you have mentioned is a set of NVidia Forceware (All in One) video drivers for Windows 2000 and XP. The driver version is 5.6.7.2 and are actually quite old, they are dated 24 Mar 2004.

The most recent drivers I can find for a Dell Latitude D630 are here:

http://support.dell.com/support/top...plash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=286482

These are the drivers for the Quadro NVS 135M display adaptor, is this definately the display adaptor in your machine?

I ask because there is also a link to a set of drivers for the Intel GM965 Express chipset here:

http://support.dell.com/support/top...plash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=247781

If you actually have Intel graphics and are installing NVidia drivers this will cause problems and the displays wont work correctly.

I would recommend totally removing all previous video drivers before trying to install new ones.

Try plugging it into a laptop VGA port.Then buggering around with some display settings.Put the laptop to sleep then wake it up.If you are lucky it may do something.I suspect it is 'no more' though.

I've had this problem before. When I start up my computer, the screen goes blank and the monitor says its in power save mode. I fixed this by reinstalling my graphics drivers. The whole fiasco occurred when I was updating my monitor drivers when Vista suddenly shut itself down.

Since then my monitor has thrown a fit whenever I restarted my computer (goes into power save mode). Yesterday I installed drivers for a new video card, and about 3/4 through the installation, the screen went into power save mode (I shut the computer off, started it back up, and everything seemed to work okay).

Today I tried starting up my computer and the monitor went into power saver mode. I could not boot windows in safe mode or anything like that, so I fear I must replace my monitor. I need help!

Ok, well, im not sure how big of a problem this is, but i would like to know whats wrong, and hope to fix it.
When i play call of duty modern warfare 2 , i will play it for a bit, mabye an hour at most, and it will randomly turn black and tell me entering power save mode. after it does that, theres no way of reviving it, i have to hold the power button down and restart it manually. i recently bought this new computer, mabye a week ago. also something id like to add is that, Cod MW2 is the only game that does it. i can play Cod black ops, civ 5, Starcraft 2. none have any problems whatsoever. Anyone input would be greatly appreciated. =D

My specs are:
Running Windows 7
Cpu = Pentium dual core E5800 3.2 ghz
3 gigs of RAM
Video card = ati radeon HD 4670

Also might add that i was thinking perhaps it was due to a PSU problem, but no other games have been having any problems? Thanks! =D

Answer:[SOLVED] Entering power save mode o.O

Check your Advanced Power settings under Control Panel>Power Options>*the power setting your using*>Change Plan Settings>Change Advanced Power Settings.

I would look at the Hard drive settings first. I have mine set to Never. Then check out the other settings available.

Dell computer is a couple years old...Monitor won't power on...says power save mode and moving mouse or touching keyboard changes nothing. Is there a way to find out or eliminate whether it is CPU, motherboard or power supply ?? PLEASE HELP !!

Answer:Monitor is stuck in power save mode?

If this has just suddenly happened then I don't know why, but you could consider disabling power saving altogether and simply shut down your computer when you are not using it.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi,

I have just moved my works PC to home and have reconnected all cables again but am having a black monitor screen, with orange on/off switch and not green.

At the back of the box the monitor cable has a male blue connector,, this is connected to another female blue connector then a larger white connector which goes into the box.

If you take the female blue connector/white connector off the the monitor displays the four coloured boxes for self test. When you replace the female/white connector it goes blank again in the power safe mode.

I cannot understand why it is not working and why it is going into power safe mode as nothing has changed and i am only 2 mins from work.
Can someone help as I am not brill.

I usually Logoff instead of Shutting down my computer at the end of the day. Upon Bootup I first get an Information screen which reads:

"Monitor is in Power Save Mode
Activate Using PC"

Normally, all I have to do is to hit the Enter key or Space Bar and the bootup commences. Lately, however, nothing happens when I hit either of those keys and in order to achieve a bootup I have to turn off the computer and start from the beginning just as if I had shut it down initially. Any ideas as to what has happened and suggestions for overcoming the problem?
 

Answer:Monitor Power Save Mode Problem

I believe the message is from your monitor not your computer. Are you sure it is actually running? Have you tried putting a CD in and see if the HDD light flashes? If teh system is alive, the monitor is asleep and you haven't disabled auto insert notification the drive light should flash as it starts the autorun app on the CD.
Be sure and try a CD that launches by itself.

I have an Inspiron 560 that’s going into power saving mode at boot. The fan is running, power button is steady white and there are no beeps. The keyboard & mouse do not respond, so none of the F functions work and it doesn’t recognize a DVD for diagnostics.
I’ve tried a different monitor and a different cable. I’ve taken out & put back in the memory. The green power supply button on the back is lit when the power cord is removed, so I don’t think it’s a battery issue. The graphics are integrated with a PCI Express X16 empty slot. Is this a motherboard or video card issue? Where do I go from here to figure this out?

Answer:Inspiron 560 boots to power save mode

Green LED on the back has nothing to do with the motherboard battery. So if you haven't changed it in a while, you may want to install a fresh CR2032 3-volt coin cell battery, ~$2 at discount stores, if nothing else than to rule it out as part of the problem.
Monitor going into Power Saving mode usually means it's not getting a video signal from the PC. And since you tried a different monitor and if there's no card in the PCI-e x16 slot, then this isn't a "video card" issue.
Without a PCi-e x16 card, you're using Intel Graphics that are on the CPU. Which onboard video port are you using, VGA or HDMI? If your monitor supports both of those, get a suitable video cable and connect it to that other port on both PC and monitor.
If using a different onboard video port doesn't help, installing a PCi-e x16 video card might (or not) help. So can you borrow one from another PC, at least to test in the 560?

When I start my computer, the monitor is stuck in power save mode. The screen appears blank until I hit a button that shows that it is in power save mode and can be activated using my pc. I can't activate it though. I tried unplugging everything, but that did not work. I checked if my video card was in properly, and it is. I tried using my old video card, but the monitor was still stuck in power save mode. I even tried using a different monitor and it was also stuck in power saving mode even though it works perfectly on my sister's computer. My monitor even works fine with her computer. I tried clearing the CMOS, but that didn't work. I have no clue what is wrong. It was working fine yesterday >.<. Any ideas?

Hi!

If my computer have been on for a while (a few hours) and I go away, it doesn?t go into power save mode. But if I restart it works fine.

I have Windows 7. It?s fully updated.

Are there maybe some programs that keep the computer awake?
