I want to disable the "allow this device to wake the computer" to prevent the accidental pressing of the keyboard waking up the PC. This option doesn't exist though, like it does with the USB mouse. Is there a way around this?

Not Wake Up After Sleep / Hibernate - Turn Off Computer Then Unplug / Plug Into Power

Mar 22, 2013

So, I have a computer I built myself specs being: AMD FX-8350, Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3, AMD Raedon 7900 HD Series, 4x4GB 1600MHz, and Windows 8. I don't feel as though listing the other parts are necessary. Anyways, my problem is that whenever I leave my computer idle it goes to sleep. Only problem is, if it's for a long amount of time I can't wake it back up. I have to not only turn off the computer, but instead unplug it and plug it back into the power.

Hardware Drivers :: Second Monitor Power Controls?

Dec 26, 2013

I've got a Windows 8 laptop hooked up to a second monitor. I prefer to only use the second monitor, so I have the display settings set to second monitor only. Problem is that the monitor power settings I use don't seem to apply to my second monitor. It's always on when the laptop is on. I would like it to sleep when not used for 10 minutes. How do I accomplish that?

Hardware Drivers :: SATA Disk With OLD (4 Pin) Power Connector

Jul 13, 2014

I've got an old 750 GB HDD (SATA) which will be fine for file serving (multi-media). It's got the standard SATA connectors (both the small one (data) and the power connector but it's ALSO got the 4 pin power connectors that you get with older IDE drives (Molex ??)

Do I need to connect BOTH power sockets or just ignore the older 4-pin IDE type connector.

Not sure why they needed BOTH power connectors -- maybe this drive might have been used also for making external HDD's at one time.

I'm minded just to connect the two SATA cables and ignore the other one.

Hardware Drivers :: Dell Inspiron 17R-5720 - No Power - No Lights

Jun 16, 2014

I'm currently working on a friend's Dell Inspiron 17R-5720 running Windows 8. The LEDs on the front (Status, Loading, Battery, WiFi) are all off, even when battery is installed, and AC adapter is plugged in.

I've checked his AC Adapter with a multimeter, and it shows it's giving off the correct amount of power. I've also tried a working charger from another computer, and it's still not being recognized. I did a bit of troubleshooting before taking it apart, thinking it would be the laptop's DC Jack, so I went and replaced that, only to find it still is acting up. I even tried to take the battery out, and plug it in just with the AC Adapter, but no luck.

Now I did get it to power up once (with the battery installed) for a few seconds, with the message, "this battery is temporarily disabled" as shown in this thread. I powered it down, but it refuses to power back up again. I don't want to say it's a bad motherboard, but that's what I'm starting to believe it is.

Hardware Drivers :: Sometimes Get Driver Power State Failure After Login To Win 8

I sometimes get "Driver Power State Failure" after logging into Windows 8 (not 8.1).

I believe it is my Sierra Wireless 760S Aircard 4G modem causing the issue but I'm not entirely sure, and sometimes it doesn't detect it until I unplug and reconnect the usb cable after booting.

Hardware Drivers :: Dell Precision T7610 With Win 8.1 Pro X64 - Missing Power Icon

Jul 17, 2014

I have a new desktop. A dell Precision T7610 with win 8.1 pro x64. I installed APC Powerchute personal edition last weekend. Went out of town and last night came home and noticed I had no power icon on the task bar. I am not sure if this started right away or not. I do like to change the power plan from balanced to high power depending on what I am doing. I can do through control panel, but I figure I should fix why I do not have the icon on the task bar now.

I tired uninstalling powerchute and it failed. I then re-installed and installed. Now power icon.

In the task bar, customize icons, and then turn systems icons on and off, the power icon is set to off but I cannot set it to on. Under customize icons, if I try to set to show icons, it says it is not active.

unfortunately I do not have a restore point before last night. Not sure if I never had any (new machine) or if some how they got deleted.

Win 8 Goes To Sleep And Won't Wake Up

Apr 18, 2013

I try hitting the power button, nothing. I have to restart, it takes a long time to read the hd's in bios, then when it restarts there is no network connection, so I need to restart again.

No real pattern to this, sometimes I leave the machine on all night and no problems, other times just a couple hours and it happens.

I am also using a wireless mouse/kb if that makes a difference.

Laptop Won't Wake Up After Closing The Lid

Feb 17, 2013

I had this problem and so have tons of other people looking for a way to fix it. You close your laptop lid only to discover - sometimes.. not all the time, the PC will not wake up from sleep. Hitting buttons, moving the mouse, nothing works. You wind up hard booting the system to get back in.

My solution involved checking that Sleep mode under Power Options was actually activated to begin with. People don't want the PC going blank on them so they set all options to Do Nothing under "Change what happens when I close the lid". This is the wrong thing to do. I had everything set to Do Nothing. What should have been checked was Sleep. This will put the PC into sleep mode and you can wake it up by moving the mouse.

However we don't want it to work this way. We want to close the lid and have the PC not go into sleep mode at all. Even if under "Choose when to turn off the display" and "Change when the computer sleeps" and all your power plan settings are set to "Never", some PC's will still give you a black screen when you close the lid as if your going into sleep mode. As if something is clearly not working. It's not really going into sleep mode. It's fooling you. It's wonky. I have been unable to determine the cause of this but if actually activating sleep mode fixes the problem, then so be it. The next step will be to get out your shotgun and blast the sucker - nobody wants that.

Because this sleep mode did sometimes work under "Change what happens when I close the lid" with all settings set to Do Nothing, it seems that the bios or some hardware based function is controlling what happens when you close the lid. Choosing to activate the sleep option from Windows seems to override that function. I could be wrong about what is actually happening here, I'm just going on appearances. I'd rather my display never darkens at all even with the lid closed but I'll take this fix for now.

It works, but after a reboot and stand-by after a certain amount of time, the option resets itself. This started 1 month or 2 ago.

Also, i notice that in one place it says password wake up is on and another place says it is off.

Interrupted During Wake Up - Can't Boot Anymore

Oct 5, 2013

I had a very very disturbing experience in which I was forced to shut down the computer, but failed and accidentally sent it to sleep.

Unfortunately, it never managed to wake up. It stayed during half an hour blocked early in the restarting process... I took my chance with a hard-reset.

And then it becomes insane. It gives me the cold shoulder, just hanging in a "Reverting changes" task. It's been a good while too.

I stand in awe wondering how is it even possible to break my setup like this. Considering the damn thing came with no restoring CD of any kind, on a scale of it's all fine to you're screwed, how exactly would you rate me ?

Maintenance :: Cannot Wake Up From Sleep - Reboots

Jan 24, 2013

Running Win 8 Pro, 64bit. I recently installed an upgrade of my BIOS. At first it took several tries to boot into Windows. That is now solved. What remains is the fact that when I wakeup the system from sleep, it only displays the pre-login screen (greenish, with the tower). It freezes right there. Thinking this might be a display driver issue, I updated it (Radeon HD 6480G). That didn't fix the problem. On some forum I read about a SAM file. My question is: How does it find it when I reboot, but not when the system goes from sleep to wake up? At any rate, how could that be fixed? Also, I don't know how to revert back to a former version of my BIOS. My laptop has an Insyde board, and it went to version F.48, what ever that means.

No Wake Up After Hibernating And Disconnection From Mains

May 17, 2013

When I set my PC to hibernate, my understand is that it is being shut off.

After hibernating, I sometimes completely switch off the power by pushing a button a socket or unplugging the cord to save energy during a long absence.

I've always done this on the same PC when it had Win 7 installed.

Now with Win 8 (and maybe some changes in the settings), it's not working anymore, as when it is hibernating and I pull the power cord it does not boot up properly anymore afterwards. The result can be a BSOD with an automatically triggered restart, or that the screen remains black after the cyan-colored Windows logo appears and nothing more happens until I press the reset button.

Hybrid standby mode is activated but I am not sure if this matters given that I shut it of by pressing on explicitly on "Hibernate" and not Stand-by.

I'm wondering if it's just a Windows or Bios configuration issue (probably since it worked before under Win 7).

I don't know if it has any bearing but in my Bios "Deep Sleep" is enable in S5 mode, which as far as I remember just controls if the USB ports have power or not and can be used to re-activate the PC.

It would be good to restore the original functionality where you are free to disconnect the power while it is in hibernation mode.

Mouse Disabled To Wake Computer But Still Does

Jun 26, 2014

I recently redid all my windows as it was time to clean everything out. When all was said and done, I only wanted my keyboard to be the only thing that wakes my computer. I've disabled everything (network adapters, etc) and the mouse within device manager. Yet, somehow - my computer is still able to be woken with the mouse. Is there something else that I'm missing? It's a Logitech G500, there is nothing in logitech gaming software I can find about this and it's already disabled in device manager (as well as any other mice that are listed).

Windows 8.1 Won't Wake Up From Sleep Mode?

Dec 14, 2013

my current issue is not waking up, every night I put my pc to sleep and the next morning when I click the mouse or push a key either nothing happens or the tower lights up and fans kick on but the screen stays black. and I must power down and restart

I have all new video drivers, I have a feeling it may be my keyboard because sometimes the keyboard doesn't shut down when the pc is put to sleep. It still has all its lights on. It is a Merc steel series gaming keyboard,

The only other weird errors I get in my event viewer are these, and they have to do with windows search.

Eventid 1006 The Windows Search Service has failed to create the new search index. Internal error <4, 0x80070002, Failed to add project: C:ProgramDataMicrosoftSearchDataApplicationsWindowsProjects>.

The Windows Search service terminated with the following error:

Network / Sharing :: Wake A Computer To Print

Sep 15, 2014

I have a USB printer connected to an 8.1 system. This printer is shared. I don't like keeping the computer on 24/7 so I set it to sleep.

Is there a way to send a wake command to the system when I want to print? WOL is working on the system. I noticed Homegroup has the option to wake the computer to view shares (and that does work).

If I can't wake the computer before a print job, what is the best practice to conserve energy on a system that is primary used as a print server?

Windows 8 Sleep / Wake / Restart And Shutdown?

Jan 15, 2013

Any magic keystroke combination for "Sleep" or is there anyway to create one? I know about Win+I then Power then Sleep.

Any option to stop scheduled tasks or other triggers that "Wake" your computer from sleep? I find my computer running in the morning after putting it to sleep at the end of the previous evening! I have reviewed all 41 scheduled tasks created by Windows and installed applications and "apps" and found none that have the Wake Computer check box checked. What's annoying is the fact that once woken the computer does not go back to sleep again! I am using the supplied balanced Power plan.

Accounts :: Win 8 Start Up And Wake Up Password Change

Jun 5, 2013

So with windows 8 I have it currently where it uses my Hotmail email address.

Is there any way to over ride it so I can use another password without needing to change the password on my Hotmail email account?

I'd prefer to use a custom password?

Are there any alternative ways to still keep a password in place but not use the same password as my email?
