Dell XPS L521X :: Laptop Resuming From Standby Automatically

Jan 10, 2015

I have a DELL XPS L521X running Windows 10 technical preview.

I have been having an issue for a while that the computer automatically resumes from standby at seemingly random times. As of late, it is also staying on indefinitely (or until a low battery event at least), despite my settings in Power Options that specify standby after a given amount of time.

This happens when it is plugged in or not, and is (of course) particularly annoying when it is unplugged and in a case that isn't ventilated.

I have checked the system and application event logs, and don't see the kernel-power event when the system resumed, but I don't see any information on why it did so.

Also worth noting: I checked my LAN and WIFI adapter power management settings, and the "allow this device to wake the computer" box is greyed out.

specifically what hardware or software is causing a resume event? Do you know how to ensure that the computer sleeps after a specified period of time when on battery?

Dell :: Extending Laptop Longevity Power Down Or Standby Mode

Oct 3, 2008

My new XPS laptop is just a few days old and I'd like not to kill it prematurely. What is current consensus on best practice to extend useful life? Shut it down after session completed (i.e., in AM when leaving for work) or leave in standby "sleep" mode? I leave my employers Dell Latitude computer powered up in a docking station during the week but power it down for the weekend. With current electronic semiconductor technology, is there a negative aspect on longevity (inrush current, for example) by daily shutting down and powering up?

Dell :: E6400 + 6 Cell + Windows 7 X64 7229 + Standby = Serious Battery Drain?

Jun 19, 2009

Fresh load of Windows 7 x64 7229 and when I put my machine into standby the battery seems to drain incredibly fast....almost like it is on. I will standby the machine before I go to bed and in the morning it's dead with 0% battery.

I used to do the same thing with my D630 and in the morning I would have 85% or so on the equivilant 6 cell battery. Is there something I am missing.

Dell :: E1705: Battery No Longer Powers My Laptop (NOT Bad Battery)

Dec 1, 2009

Last night I was using my E1705 running on battery when the thing just suddenly zapped off. I had recently glanced at the battery meter which was 75% full. I pressed the button on the actual battery which shows 3 of 5 lights on the charge meter.

The battery itself is only 1 month old and has been performing flawlessly. I just thought it was something random so I plugged the machine in and it started up.

I didn't think anything else of it till today when I went to move my laptop, removed the power cord, and the laptop turned off. I checked the physical battery meter which still reads 3 of 5 lights .....

Dell XPS M1530 :: Laptop Won't Run Off The Battery

Feb 12, 2013

I have a Dell xps M1530 laptop. A few months ago my battery started to go. I just purchased a new one from Dell and it worked good for a few days then for some some reason the laptop won't run when it is not plugged into the AC adapter. I have tried unplugging the AC and taking the battery out and holding down the start button for 30 seconds and that didn't do anything. On the tool bar the battery shows its 100% fully charged and the lights on the battery itself also says it's fully charged.

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 :: To Repeatedly Plug Laptop In Before Battery Is Low

Dec 24, 2008

Just got my first laptop, and my wife likes using it on battery in her favorite chair whereas I prefer to sit it on the coffee table plugged into the outlet. So we end up charging it up when I use it, and only draining it to between 90 and 50% or so when she uses it. Is this okay to do, should I fully drain it once a month or so, am I being too paranoid about taking care of it?

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?

Dell Inspiron 6400 :: Can Upgrade To Win 7 To Use As Standby?

Dec 30, 2014

I have an old Inspiron 6400 with Win XP, 80 GB, 2 GB RAM, Intel Core TM2 CPU. I want to install Win 7 Home Premium and use the laptop simply as a standby in case my newer Inspiron 17R 5720 is out of action. Is it possible to upgrade?  

I don't care if the performance is sluggish - it's just a standby. It would only be used for emails and internet if my newer Inspiron is down. I used the Service Tag for the 6400 to look at the available drivers. For my Service Tag, the only drivers seem to be for XP or Vista.

Dell :: Transport Studio 1737 Laptop Without The Battery In It?

Sep 1, 2009

This might be a dumb question but, can I transport my Dell studio 1737 laptop without the battery in it? Is the tiny battery inside enough to keep everything okay (not sure what 'everything' is).

I based the size on specs from the Dell site plus answers to my questions from a tech support guy via chat. He told me that my new 9 cell battery would only stick out the back of the laptop by 1". I specifically asked him if it would stick out the bottom, he said no.

1. How do I prevent the battery from being charged when the laptop is switched on (and powered by cable)?

2. How can I make the CD automatically stop spinning after, say, a minute of non-use?
