Dell :: Disable Automatic Wake From Standby When Lid Opens? Studio XPS 13
I just received my new Dell Studio XPS 13 with the integrated NVidia 9400G graphics and came across a somewhat annoying problem.

When I put my computer to sleep and shut the lid, then as soon as the lid opens, the computer wakes up from standby.

I dont want it to do this and would rather press the button manually......

Dell :: Computer Wont Wake Up From Sleep
A common issue, but here is what I know:

My 1420 with a Geforce 8400GS will not wake up from sleep. I know that it is the graphics cards fault, because everything else seems to be fine when I poen the lid.

I am using laptop2go 185.20 drivers.

Does anyone know how I can try to fix this, or what geforce 18x.xx drivers still wake up properly with an 8400 gs?

I am committed to the non-dell drivers, because Dell is horribly out of date, and the performance boost I get from the newer drivers is very worthwhile.

Sony :: Sz680 Screen Flickers After Wake Up From Sleep
This problem has bothered me since I have installed the windows7 rtm.

i am using integrated graphi card, everytime when the machine wakes up from sleep, and if the external power is unpluged, the screen starts to flicker, and windows 7 reports "displayer driver stopped working and have been recovered", looks like a driver problem, but i have downloaded from the driver from sony website and intel website, none of them solves this problem.

Dell :: Ethernet After Resuming From Sleep/standby?
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?

Acer :: 9300- Won't "wake-up" From Sleep Mode
Acer 9300 won't startup after going into sleep mode, on a restart or being powered on.

I press the power button and you can hear activity but a black screen

The only way I can get it to properly power ON is to press power button and press F2; sometimes it takes several attempts to boot up. It sometimes goes to the 'setup' screen and I exit and have success but most of the time it will go to the normal windows startup.

Looking through this forum it looks like a Motherboard issue? Would to have more input from all

Dell :: XPS M1530 Vista Standby Problem
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 :: XPS M1530 Does Not Sleep When Lid Closed
I've had my Dell XPS M1530 Notebook for just over a year now and I've been having a problem with the lid and getting the notebook to sleep when closed almost since day one!

Essentially, closing the lid does not put the computer to sleep! The screen stays on and the computer stays on. I've checked in the power options and they are all correctly configured to sleep, but I've also tried configuring them to hibernate but this still does not work. I've tried almost all of the software options and settings that I can think of and also opening up the computer to see if there were any loose connections, but everything seems fine!?

Dell :: M1530 Strange Going Into Sleep Mode
Situation : I finish surfing web and I wanna give it a little break. I close the lid.

I have set it to goto sleep when lid closed (if any1 suggested this). I come back open up but the laptop didnt go to sleep, HDD activity is minimal but I can hear it spinning.

Also the screen is still bright but black, I can still change the brightness though with the Fn+upArrow or Fn+downArrow. In order to return to functional state I have to HARDreset.

Dell :: Wake On LAN With M1730
Is it possible to use Wake On LAN with the M1730?

I've tried to look through the BIOS and there isn't specifically a option for it but it does mention in the NIC section Enable with "PXE" or "RPL". I've google a fair bit and can't find a solution so hence the new thread.

Ideally I'd like to connect via the wireless adaptor Intel 4965AGN from a hibernate state (or maybe sleep state).

My SXPS 13 just freezes on wake up randomly. I am running Windows 7 x64. I recently had the motherboard replaced for a different issue but I can not remember if the freezing problem happened before the motherboard replacement.

Did anyone figure out how to fix the freezing issue? Is it hardware related? I have one month left on my warranty.

Acer :: 8920G Will Not Wake Up
I recently purchased an Acer 8920g. It came with Vista ultimate 64. I was very excited until after 3 hours of use the screen just went blank. The lights are still on the keyboard but the screen stays blank. I have cut it on and off, removed the battery and tried alt F10 . I finally got an error message the next morning when I opened the lid. [b]Your computer cant come out of hibernation mode

Status: 0xc0000411
Info: A fatal error ocurred processing the restoration data
File: hiberfil.sys
Any information that was not saved before the computer went into hibernation will be lost.

I Emailed Acer and they cant seem to understand that the screen is blank. They keep giving me directions after I boot into safe mode.

I didnt install anything except avg 8 free edition.

Dell :: I9300Sometimes Sleeps But Wont Wake Up!
It's an issue that shows up now and then and I can't figure it out.

WinXP Pro, SP3+, 2.26GHz (does it at stock 1.7GHz too), 2GB DDR,

I have all Sleep options turned off in Power Settings....

I leave it on and plugged it most all the time, can get up in the Morning and its a Black screen and nothing I hit wakes it up. HD and other lights are on...but no waking up.

When my Win 7 arrives, I'll probably upgrade to a much larger HD and install it and the problem should be gone. (I have the RC installed on an old Athlon XPM Overclocked Desktop with 2GB Memory, GF6600GT Video - and it works great! And always wakes up!)

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas....its not like there are any newer drivers for these things...

Sometimes (not everytime, seems random) my laptop won't wake up after being put to sleep by closing the lid.

usually, I just have to tap the space bar a couple of times, and it wakes right up, but other times, there isn't anything that will wake it up ,and I have to shut it down (hold the power button for 4-5 secs) and restart it...

Sony :: Hibernation Wake-up Takes FOREVER. W7 64-bit, Vaio Z
i installed W7 64-bit on my Z590 last month, and everything has gotten to perfect working order. The only snag I've run into is that waking the computer from hibernation takes an annoying long amount of time. On the scale of minutes, whereas a fresh boot-up from shut-down will take less than a minute, and wake-from-hibernation on my XP install before did the same. Does this happen to anyone else or is it just me?

Ignoring the whole debate on why-do-you-hibernate (I run several programs, especially photoshop and MATLAB, that I do not wish to close and lose temporary history data), is there any kind of remedy for this? It's annoyed me to the point that I just put the computer on sleep instead when necessary, which drains the battery. I've been hibernating my laptops for 7 years and I really hope not to have to change my habits. I know another friend with the same setup has this issue as well.

Dell :: Standby Energy Usage
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).

Dell :: No Standby And Hibernate After Drivers Update
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.

Dell :: M4400 Not Standby Correctly When In The Docker
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 :: E1505 New Motherboard, Standby And Lock Computer Don't Work
I just had a new motherboard installed in my E1505 under warranty by a Dell Tech. They sent a new hard drive with it, with Windows XP already installed. I also still have my original hard drive. After the motherboard finished installing, my Standby no longer works...

actually it goes into Standby, but immediately wakes up, without me touching a single thing. Also, I can't lock my computer by pushing the Windows logo + L. Using that shortcut actually logs me off the user. I tried this with both the new hard drive and the old original one. Both of these things worked fine with my old motherboard.

I did a clean install of XP on the new hard drive, and still it doesn't work. So far the Dell tech that I've been talking with online and on the phone doesn't have the answer. I've been talking to him for several days now

Acer :: Timeline 1810TZ Wakes Up From Standby
I've got a problem with my 1810TZ. It wakes up from standby sometimes even when it's closed. If I have it in a case, it gets really hot.

I even know why it wakes up. Although the system log (Win7x64) says the power button is the bad guy, it's one of the keyboard keys. When the laptop is closed, and I press the display down on the right side, one of the keys is pressed (I guess something around the enter button).

Is there a way to disable the keyboard to wake the computer up? ........

HP/Compaq :: HP Nc8430 (Resuming From Standby-Blank Screen)
I have Windows 7 RTM running on my nc8430 laptop. It has been working great. The only issue is a standby problem. If I put the computer to sleep via the FN-f3 combo it goes to sleep like it should and wakes up like it should. My power profile is set to put the computer to sleep after 10min of inactivity. If after 10min I let the computer go to sleep on its own, upon resuming it from standby I get a black screen. The computer is on and everything is working with sound, just no screen.

I am assuming it is a possible BIOS problem or video driver problem. I have the most recent of each and have tried different video driver versions but no fix.

Acer :: Fan Speed Goes High When Coming Out Of Standby (TravelMate 6463)
my laptop has displayed this problem. Both on two Acer TravelMate 6413 and the current 6463, I've found that the fan speed varies with system activity. Elsewhere on these forums I've seen advice about altering the CPU speed and GPU speed to keep the fan speed down, but my problem seems to only be about coming out of standby.

Normally, the fan speed varies with the load on the machine. If I put the laptop into standby and bring it back out soon after, the fans quickly race up to speed and then vary with the load on the machine, expelling hot air.

If I leave the laptop in standby for up to an hour, then resume from standby, the fans come on at high speed, blowing cool air. This continues until I put the laptop under heavy load - then the fan speed comes down and starts to vary as expected once more.

Acer say it's a known microsoft issue, but I can find no evidence of it. I think it's probably an unresovled BIOS fault.

Acer :: 5100 Keyboard/Mouse Not Responding Except To "wake"
My computer will load to the main ID sign in screens, but the mouse and keyboard seem completely unresponsive. The only response I do get, is when the the screen goes into power save, touching the keyboard will cause it to wake up. But that is the ONLY response I can get. How wierd is that? Mouse, on board and external, are unresponsive. I can not so far get to safe mode or anything else, neither F2 or ALT+ F10 do anything on boot.

Previously, I was useing the laptop, including firefox, audacity (minor audio program) notepad and media player. I plugged in my USB mp3 player, and the second I made contact, blue and white vertical lines filled the screen. I forced off, subsequent boots gave only a completely black screen. With instructions from Acer's, I removed all power sources for 20 minutes and rebooted, and now can get to as mentioned the sign in screen, but that is all. Alt and F10, and F2 during boot seem unresponsive. I am assuming that the drivers for the keyboard and mouse are corrupted. I even tried an external USB mouse, no luck. I don't have a UBS keyboard to try

The CD Rom is still responsive, It will eject, and you can hear it reading a disc. Please let me know what I need to try next. IF the keyboard would respond, I could do erecovery, but .. well. No key board. I looked on Acers' site for Kb/Mouse drivers, but didn't see anything, and I"m not even sure how I'd install then from a disc anyway.

Even when I set sleep to 3 or 4 minutes it still had the same problem. Also to note: I have my laptop plugged in to the AC (it's not running off battery) .....

When my Precision M4400 goes to sleep after I close the lid, it sometimes turns itself back on without opening the lid back up (it gets rather hot and the fan is running by the time I go to use the computer again, however, I believe the screen stays off).

This has really started to bother me lately as the heat cannot be good for the computer and I always have to turn the computer off by holding the power button after it does this because the screen won't turn back on.
