I have a Macbook Pro (17" Penryn model just before the unibody one) and it's been working great so far until recently...
Lately it's been randomly going into sleep mode and waking up just as randomly as if nothing happened. Someone told me its a RAM issue, but i'm sure it cant be that since that will usually shut the mac down instead of putting it on standby.
I have a Inspiron 14R for about a year and half now. This computer has done this since day one for some reason:
When I put the 14R in SLEEP mode, the computer remains in sleep mode for about 2-3 hours, then the computer shuts itself off, or goes into hibernation mode on it's own. The computer has Windows 7 Premiuim.
I have the power saving modes all set too SLEEP, and none in hibernation in any of the selections. I cannot for the life of me why this computer does this. I have a Lenovo I bought about a year later using Windows 7 Premium with all the same settings in the POWER section, and while in sleep mode, it STAYS in SLEEP mode, no matter the length of time in that mode. Any setting I need to turn off, and where to find it?
thought that hibernate was better because it turns off the computer and saves battery except on my laptop the power button is defaulted to sleep so I would have thought that they would default it to that for a reason.
I have a HP pavillion dv9610us Notebook which i never really have had issues with until now. As of this past week, when I close my lid and the notebook goes to sleep it is getting so friggin hot now when I come back to use it when before it never did.
Has anyone have problem with sleep mode under vista hp? My Compaq is able to sleep first time while I am away for extended period but it will not sleep again when i am away again it stay awake forever.
I have a one year old HP Envy M6 and it has just recently began acting up. It will not come out of sleep mode when I jiggle the mouse or press keys on the keyboard. Also, instead of going in to sleep mode, it seems to switch to hibernate. Sometimes I can press the power key lightly and it seems to do a shorter startup (my browser will ask if I want to "restore" the previous session, the documents are saved in a temp file, but still the HP logo appears as it is booting up). Other times the power light is already on, but it won't wake up at all and so I have to do a hard reboot by pressing the power button until it shuts itself off and restarts.
My XPS (bios A05) always wakes up after sleep mode with the fan running full speed and never stops after that. This occurs even if the PC goes to sleep with fan off (ie low system load, low temperature). The only way to turn the fan off is a full reboot.
I have the 1330 with XP on it. I installed the new BIOS A14 and now I encountered a new problem: when I hibernate the 1330, everything is good. But, When I choose the Sleep mode, the 1330 goes to sleep, but never wakes up. When I press on the power button, nothing happens. Therefore, I need to hold the power button, than the computer shut himself down and I turn it on.
After I put my laptop on sleep mode and shut the lid down, I always see the computer turn back on automatically after only a few minutes (I can hear the laptop working and the light turns green, although the monitor remains off).
Why is this so? The laptop also seems to turn off after a while it is turned back on from sleep mode.
I also notice my Z having a particular video error at times. That is, sometime, the laptop monitor turns black for a few seconds, turns back on at the highest brightness setting, and a error message pops up saying something about how it was unable to find a driver.
I am getting a new hp laptop dv7t and in the past I have pretty much always kept my laptop in sleep mode when it was not in use. If I was going to not use it for a couple of days then I would turn it off. It is always plugged in since it is pretty much a desktop laptop.
What is the best practice for a always plugged in laptop?
My Dell XPS 12 has twice refused to turn on after going into Sleep mode. There is no indication of activity at all. This happens when I know that the battery is nearly fully charged, and continues even after plugging in the adapter. The adapter works just fine to charge the battery and the battery typically runs for at least 6 hours so I do not believe that or the battery are the problem.
The first time this happened, I continued to open/close the lid and try turning on the computer. After several hours, the computer turned on and worked just fine. I had already scheduled service with Dell before I got it to turn on and Dell's technician replaced the motherboard under the assumption that that was the problem.
The second time I again continued to open/close the lid and try the power switch after contacting Dell and scheduling service. The next day, after several tries, the computer started up and again is working normally. I am not allowing the computer to Sleep and am using Shut Down instead. Dell has ordered a replacement motherboard (yes, again), battery, and DC IN. I don't think that this is a power issue so doubt that any of those will fix the problem.
Does the XPS 12 have a "lid sensor"? Something that could fail to recognize that the lid is open and could be turned on?
My XPS 18 periodically has had trouble coming out of sleep mode. A hard restart has usually worked to restart it. However, the last time it didn't work and now won't start. While plugged in, a hard restart only turns the fan on after a few seconds and the battery indicator light blinks fast 7 times, then pauses, then repeats continuously. Once the battery runs down, a hard restart only gets a single orange blink and then nothing.
My new XPS 14 is experiencing problems after going into sleep/hibernation mode. Each time the computer goes to sleep, I get a message from Intel Rapid Storage Technology that acceleration has been disabled. Basically, when this happens, the SSD drive becomes inaccessible and no longer recognized by the computer (disappears from device manager). In order to get it back, I restart the computer, which brings the ssd drive back up in device manager, and then I have to disassociate the drive and re-enable acceleration after that.Dell has put in a service order to have my SSD drive replaced.
I just purchased an Aspire V5-561PG laptop. It has Windows 8.1 installed. I'm encountering a very frustrating problem with it and it seems to be a very common problem after searching on various tech forums. I am not able to get the laptop out of sleep mode once it goes into that mode. It's gone into sleep mode via inactivity, closing the laptop lid and by pressing Function+F4. I cannot get it to wake after each of these instances. The only thing I can do is hold down the power button to manually shut it down and then press the power button again to restart it. I'm not even 100% sure it's going into sleep mode with any of the 3 above scenarios. The screen goes black as you would expect but the lights in the bottom, front of the laptop are still all lit up. I would expect the lights to turn off when it's in sleep mode (maybe I'm wrong about that). I've changed the video drivers multiple times and that hasn't worked. I have the latest BIOS installed.
I have an Acer Aspire One with OS Win XP. This morning I went in the Power Management and decided to try Hibernate. I went away for a moment. When I returned, the On Switch was still green, but nothing worked. Black screen, HD dead like everything else. I tried F-Alt-F4 to no avail !
First I thought it was the contact problem with the power adapter then I fixed that problem. Now it simply turns on and and does nothing. After awhile even the fan comes on properly. But the laptop has no pic nothing no hardrive movement nothing.
