Dell Latitude E6530 :: Won't Wake Up - Goes Into Standby After A Few Minutes Of Inactivity

Apr 1, 2013

I got a Latitude E6530 with an E-Port II a few weeks ago. In general it's great but I have had one annoying problem a few times:

The laptop is docked with the lid closed, and two external monitors, and an external USB keyboard and mouse connected. It's running Windows 7 Ultimate.

The laptop goes into standby after a few minutes of inactivity.

When I press the power button on the dock to resume from standby, the external monitors stay in standby mode and the mouse and keyboard don't power on (no num lock light or laser on the bottom of the mouse).

If I undock the laptop and open it, the screen stays off and it doesn't respond to keyboard or touchpad input, even after several minutes. However the power light is on and the hard disk light occasionally blinks. The only solution is to power off the laptop by holding the power button for a few seconds.

Note that this doesn't happen every time that the laptop is woken from standby, it's only happened 3-4 times in a month. The Windows logs don't show any errors either.

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Wake Up Then Go Back To Sleep On Its Own After 2 Minutes Of No Activity

Apr 25, 2013

I have a new Inspiron 15 (3521) running Windows 8.

I'm using it as a desktop replacement, so it's got an external keyboard/mouse/monitor plugged in, it's plugged into AC power, and I keep the lid closed.

I have the Windows power management set up so that if the laptop is on AC power, it should never go to sleep. I also have it so that if the lid is closed, nothing should happens.

So here's the problem: If I manually tell Windows to sleep, after I wake it up again, it'll go back to sleep on its own after 2 minutes of no activity. It'll keep doing that, until I open the lid and close it again, and then there won't be any problem until the next time I manually put Windows to sleep again. I can reproduce the problem every time. I'm not sure why it does this, or why it chooses 2 minutes of idle time before sleeping.

I've got the most recent BIOS and all the latest drivers from Dell.

Is this a known bug? Or is there something I'm missing? I couldn't find anything else in the Windows power management control panel, nor in the Intel graphics settings utility.

Nov 27, 2012

3) Select 'BIOS Setup' from the pre-boot menu

4) Select Power Management, then select the 'Primery Battery Charge Configuration'

5) Select the 'Custom' option (Write down which option is selected before you make the selection so you can restore this setting later)

6) Set the 'Custom Charge Start' value (e.g. 50, NOTE the BIOS will not allow a value less than 50)

7) Set the 'Custom Charge Stop' value (e.g. 75, NOTE: the BIOS requires this value be 5 greater than the 'Start' value)

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Chipset Driver Update Fails

Aug 5, 2014

Using Dell Clent System Update to update a Latitude E6530. All drivers are updated now except the Intel Chipset Driver. On Windows 7 64 bit. Framework version of the driver is 3.0.921.

The error message that it gives is Update package digital signature is invalid - status: Failed  Error Code 7

Not sure how to remedy this.

I am trying to install this driver update hoping it will remedy a black screen with cursor when logging in. It takes about a minute to login and then the desktop finally appears. Was taking quite a bit longer to log in before I updated the other drivers and then removed McAfee to see if it was eating up system resources.

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Upgrading Keyboard - Standard To Backlit

Mar 2, 2013

I was recently given a Latitude E6530 and I wish to upgrade the standard keyboard to a backlit one after coming from a MacBook Air. I was wondering, does E6530 (or it's similar models) requires an additional cable to power the backlight or does it just feed off the single cable? I've scoured YouTube and Google to try find out if an extra cable is required for this model however wasn't able to.

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Blank Screen At Power On After Switching BIOS To UEFI Boot

Aug 7, 2013

I'm trying to install Ubuntu on an e6530. I changed a BIOS boot setting from Legacy to UEFI. Now the laptop doesn't even show me a BIOS screen at startup. The screen is backlit, so power is on, but shows nothing. The drive light flickers a few times, but no matter how long I wait, nothing appears.

I can't even switch it back to Legacy because I can't get into the BIOS. Hitting F12 after power on does nothing. Is there some way to get it back to Legacy mode? Or simply reset the BIOS to default settings?

Dell :: Standby Energy Usage

Nov 3, 2009

Does anyone know how much energy Dell's latest laptops use when in standby mode? I've tried looking on their website, but I can't find any definitive figures (I'm using a Precision M4400, if that helps).

Before I always used to hibernate or shutdown my laptop to save energy, but I'm curious if standby mode really uses much power or not.

Dell :: No Standby And Hibernate After Drivers Update

Oct 3, 2009

I was trying to update my drivers, I went to dell website and got a few update for my drivers, but now, my computer won't go into standby or hibernate. If I try to go into standby, after I see the "preparing to standby" my computer goes black and the on light still on, then I can't wake the system up I have to press and hold the power button and reestart. When I try to go into hibernate mode after "preparing to hibernate" I see a blue screen with that says something like "an error has happened and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to my system, the problem could be caused by a new software or driver... etc" After I restart it says, your system has recovered from a serious problem and then it ask me to send a report error, I do and then my web browser and open this: [url]I know the problem was a driver that I was trying to update to make my computer work better but instead it messed up. How do I undo the updated drivers?

Dell :: M4400 Not Standby Correctly When In The Docker

Mar 12, 2010

I have an M4400 running W7 pro x64, and at work I have it docked and use both the laptop screen and an external screen (don't know if that matters).

Sometimes, not always but quite often, when I put it to sleep (aka standby) by using the start menu command, it behaves as if it goes to sleep, the screen blacks out etc, but it doesn't really.

And I realize this when I've arrived at home and pick it out of its bag, it is *hot* really hot and still running.

Dell :: XPS M1530 Vista Standby Problem

Oct 11, 2009

I have a Dell XPS M1530 Laptop (T8300, 3gb, 8600M GT, wifi-n, dual-boot Vista+XP, ...), and 4 times out of 5 , when I want to put the PC in StandBy mode, it reboots.

Obviously, it gives me the " Windows did not shut down properly ; Start in Safe Mode/ Safe with Network" etc etc screen, and you can understand I find this pretty annoying. It also does so when I put it in hibernation mode.

It does so only with Vista, and it never did with XP. I just reformatted (the Vista partition) and installed + updated every Vista component and it still does it.

At first I thought it might have had a link in applications being open and me standing the computer by, but figured that even with the fewest apps running, it still does it 4 out of 5 times.

Dell :: Ethernet After Resuming From Sleep/standby?

Nov 9, 2009

So I just got my Studio XPS 1340. Everything is good. Just installed Windows 7(clean install). But, there is a problem with the ethernet when the system resumes from sleep/standby.

I didn't test ethernet with vista. There seems to be no problems with Wifi resuming from sleep. Is this just a Windows 7 driver problem? I updated the bios, drivers, basically everything I can find I updated.
Still happening.

Also turned off "Turn this device off to save power" option.

Any ideas?
