Dell Inspiron N4110 :: Not Coming Out Of Sleep Mode - Have Force Shutdown Then Restart
Mar 31, 2013
Inspiron N4110 When I shut the lid it enters sleep mode. Until now when I would open lid and push the power button it wakes up. Now it does nothing and I have to hold power button down to force shutdown then restart.
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.
I have a dell inspiron 1545. In the last month a trojan virus was discovered (unknown if this has anything to do with anything). I thought the fan was making a lot of sounds so over the weekend I sprayed it with canned air, which stopped the noise. Yesterday it started just shutting down. It does not re-start without you physically pushing the button. This can happen at any time.
I used Dell's PC Doc Came up with the following errors:
Tested and Needs Attention: (1) Video Card: Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family Shader Rendering DX10 Test Cannot Run The test cannot complete due to a possible driver problem.
THE FOLLOWING PASSED BUT SHOWED A MINUS SIGN:Advanced Pattern Test Passed The memory in this system is operational. Bit Low Test Passed The memory in this system is operational. Bit High Test Passed The memory in this system is operational.Nibble Move Test Passed The memory in this system is operational. Walking One Left Test Passed The memory in this system is operational.

Address Test Passed The memory in this system is operational. Modulo20 Test Passed The memory in this system is operational. Moving Inversion Test Passed The memory in this system is operational. Windows Memory Test Passed The memory in this system is operational.
I tried doing a diagnostic with an F12 at startup, and it does the same shut down deal during that as well. So it does not complete.
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?
I have a Dell Inspiron 14x 5423 that will reboot/restart but will not shut down, sleep, or hibernate. The screen shows shutting down, the screen and the hard drive turns off, but the power light and fan stay on until the battery dies in the laptop. I hold the power button and everything shuts off. When booting, I do not get the windows improperly shut down error the I normally get when I just hold the power button to shut off the computer so I suspect the operating system is shut down! I have tried updating bios to A13, video drivers, Chipset drivers, and Windows 8.1, The laptop passes all diagnostics.I even tried admin command prompt and "shutdown /s /f /h 0" command with no different results. Changed all settings in Control Panel to enable sleep and/or hibernate. I downloaded KB hot-fix which says it is for Windows 7 as another test.
I have a Precision m6700 that I'm trying to install OS X Mountain Lion on. The biggest problem I have at the moment is that the laptop won't wake from sleep.
It goes to sleep okay. With the slowly pulsating light on the power button, but when I try and wake it up the machine goes into a loop of trying to start and then turning itself off after a few seconds. I suspect it's something to do with ASF and Intel Management Engine getting confused by OSX. Or OSX not doing something it needs to before the machine enters sleep. In the bios log I see 'ASF2 force off' events that match the time and frequency of the wake attempts. How do I find out what is generating these alerts?
Alternatively, is there any way to turn ASF or Intel Management Engine off? There is a yellow sticker in the battery bay that says 3 ME DISABLED. From what I've read elsewhere this indicates that the Intel Management Engine is permanently turned off on this laptop. Why it's generating ASF alerts at all!?
I've also trying the CCTK tool with --asfmode=off. This reports that asfmode isn't available on this laptop.
I have a Dell Inspiron N5050 that unfortunately shuts down on its own or fails to respond when it goes to sleep mode. This doesn't happen every time it goes to sleep but it still happens quite frequently. When it shuts down on it's own, it displays a "Windows Did Not Shut Down Properly" message once it is turned back on. It very rarely displayed a Blue Screen of Death that mentioned something about drivers but this hasn't popped up in a while.
I've been in contact with a Dell representative for about a week now, having him call me every day to remote control my laptop and try something new. He updated all of the drivers he could find (I previously did this but he decided to go ahead and re-download them anyways), updated the BIOS (again, tried that already on my own), ran all sorts of diagnostic tools (the only one that he ran that I hadn't already run was the WinDbg X86 program), changed sleep settings (tried that on my own too), had me scan the entire computer for about 3 hours to check for hardware issues (It was one of the options under the F12 key when the computer first boots up and it came up clean), and yesterday he set up a new user account and had me use that for a day to see if the problems were linked to my profile (didn't even think about that one). It's actually caused the problem to occur more frequently to be quite honest. Today was especially bad, as the computer crashed 9 times and ended up deleting the newly created profile on its own in an attempt to repair itself.
I've had my Dell Insprion N5110 for about a year now with little issue, but lately this really annoying problem has arose. Every time I just close my laptop (to put it in sleep mode, essentially) and then open it back up... it wont turn on. The power bottom stays completely lit up (not blinking, like it would in sleep/hibernation mode) but no matter what I press, it wont turn on. I end up having to completely shut it down every time. i did update for BOIS and VGA nothing happen

My wife and daughter both have Dell Inspiron 1525's. My daughter's works flawlessly while my wife's has one irritating glitch. When the lid is closed, instead of going into sleep mode, it reboots itself. It doesn't complete itself though it always stops at the "windows shutdown improperly how do you want to restart" or something like that screen...it's the dos screen that says do you want to start windows normally or in safe mode, etc.
When it does this it never shuts off so I'll get home from work or I'll get up in the morning to find the fan has run all night...It was purchased in august and I'd hate for my wife to prematurely burn this thing up.
I've gone into ms config and one by one tried to isolate what the problem could be. Sometimes I have it narrowed down or actually got the culprit because once in awhile it'll do what it's supposed to do....then next time the lid gets closed it goes back to the existing problem.
I have a dell Inspiron N5110 which is just over a year old. I upgraded to windows 8 not too long ago and my laptop has been just fine until today. When I close the lid or do anything to put my computer to sleep, it freezes up. The power button light stays solid and it seems like the computer is stuck. The only way to get it to do anything is to hold the power button down. My bios is updated to A11 which is the latest version. I don't know what else to do. Seems like I've tried everything but I can't figure it out.
I received an Inspiron 17r SE and have had absolutely no technical problems running it. The only thing that i don't understand is why my battery adapter whines whilst in sleep mode. This never occurs when the laptop is shut off or running but only when in sleep. The high pitched whine seems to oscillate with the blinking white light on the front of the laptop.
I put my laptop on sleep by closing the lid but after some time when I open the lid it doesn't show any display. I tried to on the laptop by pressing power button but it doesn't responding. I bought it around 4 months ago.
Took delivery of my brand new y510p yesterday and the last 24 hours have been hell.The PC is incredibly slow, much slower than my three year old XPS 15 from dell.
The laptop won't shut down/restart.. It just goes through shutdown screen then black screen with keyboard monitor fan etc still on.I have done a system recovery back to initial state and am now running windows updates as first port of call but its been stuck on 13 out of 32 update (whilst shutting down) for the past hour and half.
I cannot turn off my acer laptop since windows 8.1 update.. whenever i do shutdown, it simply just restart after shutting down.. i dont know how to turn off my laptop.. also sleep and hibernate seems not functioning, in a couple of seconds it awakes again..
I tried the every thing about the power management to untick something about fast startup.. still no luck
And i forced to shutdown my laptop during startup but it cause me a problem.. It wont power on.. and it seems dead but when i plug the power adapter the battery is charging but no signs of powering up(no power led, just battery led) whenever i press the power button.. i tried dispersing the static electricty but no luck.. the only option that solve my problem on not powering up is to disassemble my laptop and remove cmos battery. then i assembled it back.. it shows 1 blink of power led whenever i plug in the ac adapter without the laptop battery plugin.. and then it powers up again after i press the power button.. what a relief.. but it doesnt fix my shutdown problem..
the only thing i havent tried is BIOS update.. but im having problem right now..
i tried last year to update my BIOS after that it went wrong the black "screen of death" they call.. so i sent my laptop to service center.. and it fixed!..
I tried lately to update my BIOS but it says that i have already an updated BIOS version 2.19.. i guess this is the bios version installed by service center.. how can i apply the BIOS posted on ACER website with the latest version 2.15?
If i want to turn off my laptop, i simply close the lcd monitor to remain it in sleep mode..
My dell xps 13 turns off when I press restart, and then never comes back on. If I hit power the keyboard flashes once and then nothing. It starts back up maybe one out of every 50 attempts. I am very disappointed in this product
I've been having this problem since I received the notebook from Dell last March.
When the notebook goes into standby or hybernation mode, upon awaking, the screen becomes unreadable. The screen looks like a fractal image, swirling spirals and squares of colors.
When the box comes up that says 'This computer is locked' you can't type in the username or password lines and I have to push the power button and restart the notebook everytime after stand by or hybernation mode is used
Recently upgraded my Dell XPS 13 L321X BIOS to ver 8. Since then, whenever I close the lid and put the laptop to sleep for several hours, the processor seems to come and the bottom frame is very hot. When the lid is opened the screen remains blank and doesn't wake from sleep mode. The only recourse is to do a hard shutdown with the power button and then restart. The laptop then reboots to the black trouble shooting screen, or select the normal windows boot. I've since tried to update all the drivers, but still no luck. It continues to run hot and refuses to start after placing the laptop in the sleep mode.
I have a 2 yr old Pavillion G7-1329 wm with Windows 7. I use Windows antivirus and firewall along with Malwarebytes for spyware. I have noticed recently when I download or update anything, instead of restarting as before, it hangs up and after about 5 minutes it goes into hibernate and won't come out of it.
I have to do a hard power off.
I have done a couple of restore points but it doesn't solve the problem.
I do use a cooling fan to prevent overheating although it does still get quite warm.
Just got a new E6400 and even before VISTA had fully loaded 1st time, it had bluescreened and showed a minidump with errorcode 9F = DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.
Error occurs very often when going to sleep mode, and sometimes when doing reboot or shutdown.
Computer then hangs for 5-10-15 minutes before rebooting and showing the VISTA error report. Now, 2 days after 1st power on, I've had probably 10 BSOD's during sleep / restart / poweroff operations .....
