Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Laptop goes into permanent sleep mode, etc

\015 Laptop screen goes blank - permanent sleep mode. Can't wake it up. CTRL, ALT, DEL does nothing. Touching mouse pad or any key does nothing. Can't switch off obviously so have to resort to holding down On/OFF button and it then shuts down. Sometimes then when I try to turn on again, all the lights come on but nothing happens. It will not boot up except for once in about every 10 tries! Then it runs great until left alone when the 'sleep' cycle starts again. Really frustration. It does not appear to be overheating. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

If you can restart it and it starts up fine, then I would go into the power settings and disable sleep mode. Every computer is different on how to wake a sleeping computer, so you could read through your manuals and find out for yours, but I just disable sleep mode on all computers so i dont have to hassle with it.
