When trying to put e6400 on XP SP3 to standby, the screen goes black but I am not certain the laptop is asleep. USB device lights are still lit. When trying to wake the laptop, it will not wake up and if the screen simply went dark, it will not come on. I always have to push the power button and force a reboot.
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.
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.

I have a Dell XPS 17 l702x 3D model. I hve been having issue on sleep mode for the past few weeks. Whenever I put it in sleep its fine, however when I press power button to wake up from sleep I get blank screen. The power button lits, the hard drive spin for a sec then stop and screen stays blank. Only way to get out of that is to force shutdown and restarting. Its same when hibernating, fails to wake up.
On a side note BIOS is upto date and my laptop is still under warranty.
I have been getting BSOD seconds after waking up from a long sleep. I try sleeping it again on the restart and waking it up, but there's no BSOD. Anyone having this problem ? I checked my event viewer and this is what I got.
Suddenly, would not resume from sleep when the lid was opened - whether or not the power was plugged in. Long pressing the power button restarted windows but as expected an error message was in the event log "System did not shut down properly..." Re-installed Windows 8.1 64Bit Pro from scratch - totally clean re-install. Now - goes to sleep without any problem.
However, on opening the lid only wakes up if the power plug is not plugged in.If the power plug is plugged in the laptop does not wake up.It is extremely disappointing to have paid big bucks for an excellent laptop to be let down by this problem within a month. I suspect a hardware issue. I am seriously considering returning this to Dell and looking elsewhere. I would think that customer support for products under warranty would be available over the weekend..but that doesn't seem to be the case. I have to wait till Monday!All drivers are up to date and the latest BIOS updated (A07) is installed.
I have a late 2011 model XPS 15 that no longer wakes up from sleep or hibernation mode, at least only the screen doesn't. The computer will start up but the screen stays black, not even the backlight will come on. I can hear it working but nothing happens.
I'm having a wake up from sleep mode problem with my DELL VOSTRO 2521 since some months.My pc has two graphic cards: Intel 4000 and ATI AMD Radeon.I've tried many solutions but I do have this problem even today.When I shut the computer down with the sleep option or when I close the lid, sometimes the pc even refuses to sleep, when it sleeps it won't wake up unless I hard turn off it using the on/off button.
I tried the solutions proposed in the following link and many other ones:
1. Power management tab solutions: Allow this device to wake the computer... 2. Selective startup and services desabling 3. Use Powercfg command to check the issue 4. Control panel>Power options>change when computer sleeps>change advanced power settings> Sleep> ... > Multimedia
I see some people talk about the BIOS, to check its settings for sleep, to disable the BIOS setting "USB wake up" . I didn't try it cause i'm not sure about the result.
Also in Device Manager, to go to Keyboards, right click on the Keyboard device, click on properties, Click on the Power Management tab, and click the check box: "allow this device to wake the computer." Uncheck the box that say's "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
And to do the same as above for the "Mice and other pointing devices." But I can't do with my Keyboard, cause there is no Power Management tab on mine.
Lately my Acer will not wake up from sleep, has been shutting down on its own losing all my saved open windows sometimes not even leaving a history I can recover. Now it is disabling the wireless adapter so I am not able to be online until it reboots. I don't have an ethernet port so I have no other option. A Google searched revealed to update the Power Management Software but I am not able to locate how to do this.
Just bought the new Inspiron 7537 with NVIDIA graphics card. The issue is when I try to wake it up after the laptop in a sleep mode, only the keyboard is light but the screen is black. I have to press the power button to shut it down.
I am not able to wake up my new laptop from sleep via USB mouse or keyboard. I would like to be able to do that because I usually keep my laptop lid closed, so the power button is not immediately accessible. I've searched the forums here and found similar issues with other models, and at least with the Inspiron 17R the problem was recently resolved with a BIOS update. I had no issues when using the same USB mouse and keyboard on an old XPS 8000.
Now for the details:
Model: Inspiron 15 (3521) BIOS: A06
USB Wake Support: Enabled
Operating System: Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit Keyboard: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 Software: Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center Mouse: Logitech Performance Mouse MX Software: Logitech SetPoint
If I go into Device Manager, and look at various devices, I see the following:
Human Interface Devices HID-compliant consumer control device - no Power Management tab HID-compliant device - no Power Management tab Logitech HID-compliant Unifying device - no Power Management tab Logitech Unifying USB receiver - no Power Management tab Microsoft Hardware USB Keyboard - "Allow this device to wake the computer" grayed out USB Input device - "Allow this device to wake the computer" grayed out
Keyboards: HID Keyboard Device - no Power Management tab Microsoft USB Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 - no Power Management tab
Mice and other pointing devices: HID-compliant device - no Power Management tab Logitech HID-compliant Unifying Mouse - no Power Management tab
Universal Serial Bus controllers: Generic USB Hub - "Allow this device to wake the computer" grayed out USB Composite Device - no Power Management tab USB Root Hub - "Allow this device to wake the computer" grayed out USB Root Hub (xHCI) - "Allow this device to wake the computer" grayed out
If I go into an Administrator command prompt, I get the following:
powercfg /deviceenablewake "Logitech HID-compliant Unifying device": You do not have permission to enable or disable device wake. powercfg /deviceenablewake "USB Root Hub": You do not have permission to enable or disable device wake.
From what I've been able to find online, I should be able to enable "Allow this device to wake the computer" in the Power Management tab of various devices in Device Manager, especially the USB Root Hub devices, and possibly the Logitech USB and Microsoft keyboard devices. I assume if I can get that enabled, things might work as expected.
I've just purshased a new Acer Aspire E5-771 (IGP, not Nvidia).
When I get into deep sleep, it can wake-up normally. I mean that after pressing power button and booting Windows, it comes back to my opened session.
But wen I get in simple sleep (close the lid or press Alt+F4), it cannot wake up. Let me be precise. Wen it is in simple sleep, the orange LED is blinking. If I open the lid, nothing happens. If I press a keystroke, the LED becomes quickly blue and then switches off (1/10 second). No noise, no image. Nothing else happen. I have to press power button to switch on the computer, but I lose my session and have to boot all of Windows.
It does this from the beginning, even with my updated drivers and with the last 1.15 BIOS.
So I have an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 that has all the latest drivers with BIOS A11 (Win 7 Ultimate x64)... I have all the power settings configured for correctly for sleep (no hybernate), however no matter what I try, I can't get the laptop to wake when the lid is closed via USB keyboard.
I'm using Logitech's Wave MK560 combo (unifying receiver) - both the keyboard/mouse have the wake option enabled in their hardware settings. I also have wake from USB enabled in the BIOS.
The interesting thing is that if I put the computer to sleep with the lid open, I can make it sleep/wake it from the Logitech devices. With the lid closed, I can only make it sleep - the only way to wake it up is to open the lid and press the power button.
Lid Open : CAN sleep/wake from USB Keyboard/Mouse
Lid Closed : Can ONLY sleep - won't wake unless I open Lid&press power button
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 an Inspiron 15R (5537) that has all the latest drivers with Dell BIOS A01 (Windows 8). I have the options for closing the lid set at "Do Nothing" for both battery and plugged in, however no matter what I try, when the lid is closed I can't get the laptop to wake via USB keyboard or mouse.
Both the keyboard and mouse have the wake option enabled in their hardware settings. I also have wake from USB enabled in the BIOS.
The interesting thing is that if I put the computer to sleep with the lid open, I can make it wake it from the keyboard or mouse. But with the lid closed, the only way to wake it up is to open the lid and press the power button.
Lid Open : CAN wake from USB Keyboard/Mouse.
Lid Closed : Won't wake unless I open lid and press power button.
It is a XPS 15 9530 and when set to sleep when the lid is closed the unit will not wake when the lid is opened. If I then press the power button it lights up and I hear a faint sound for about 20 sec (fan, disk, nothing weird) and then the sound stops. I never see anything on the screen. If I press the power button, again, then it says the PC wasn't shutdown correctly. Next, it runs some diagnostics for about 10 seconds and then it starts normally.
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.
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.
When I put my laptop to sleep or it sits idle for a period of time and goes to sleep on it's own it stops recognizing the laptop monitor. It will still display on other monitors connected through the docking station, but not the laptop. It doesn't matter if I put it to sleep while on the dock or off the dock, it never recognizes the monitor.
I have an Intel HD Grpahics 4600, and an NVIDIA Quadro K1100M video cards. I've checked drivers for both and they both say they are up to date (9/29/14 for Intel, and 09/12/2014 for NVIDIA). I have also updated every possible thing in the Lenovo System Update.
This problem occured after switching from windows 7 to windows 8.1.I have also lost the ability to control the brightness of my laptop monitor through my computer at any point in time. The function keys don't work, and the setting is not shown on my power manager.
I got a new T440s about 2 weeks ago and sometimes it doesn't wake up after it goes into sleep mode. It gets stuck on a black screen and the mouse cursor is visible, but moving the mouse or pressing keys on the keyboard fails to wake it up. When this happens, I have to restart the computer by holding down the power button for 10 seconds. I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit and hybrid sleep is off. I'm just really confused because sometimes it wakes up perfectly and sometimes it doesn't.
