HP Laptop won't come back on after sleep mode - have to reboot

\015 Hi - each time after I put down the screen and let it go into sleep mode, when I open it back up and try to get it to come back on all I get is a black screen (and a whirring sound like its starting up). However, it never comes back on. I have to take the battery out, replace and reboot to get it to work. Please assist. Thanks!\015

Answers :

Check the Power settings in BIOS. Some of the laptops have a S1 and S3 setting. Check to see what setting it is on, and switch to the other one. Most likely, it is set to S1.

\015\012Without the model number, it is kind of hard to tell you how to navigate through the BIOS, but with HP laptops, you can get to the BIOS menu by pressing "F10" when you first turn the computer on and you see the HP logo.
