When Coming Out Of Sleep Mode, Monitor Wont Turn Off

When coming out of sleep mode, my pc's screen saver won't come on and the monitor won't turn off. My windows 7 64-bit pc is set to bring itself out of sleep mode every morning to run backups. About one third of the time, when it does this, the monitor stays black, with the only visible element being the cursor. The full display is only shown when i move the mouse. This is what i would like to happen all the time.

However, other times, the full desktop is shown when the pc comes out sleep mode, and the screen saver will not come on after this, nor will the monitor put itself in standby mode after 10 minutes like it's meant to. Does anybody know how to fix this so it behaves the way i'd like all the time? It drives me mad as the monitor lights up the darkened room. My graphics adapter is an ati radeon 4200.

Blue Screen When Entering Sleep Mode

Bsod when entering sleep mode and with system restore. I recently started to have problems with my system crashing and bsod when it went into sleep mode. I updated all of the drivers and have attempted different fixes but i cannot resolve this issue. When i attempted to do a system restore, it, too, was unsuccessful and also crashed with bsod. There is no apparent malware or virus; however, windows doesn't recognize my avira antivirus program, which is running normally.

Black Screen Sleep Mode Issue After Win7 Upgrade

Since i have upgraded from vista to windows 7, i've been having problems with my computer. My main issue is that when i close my laptop (and it enters sleep mode), when i open it back up, its just a black screen. I click, and tap the power button, and nothing happens. The only way to get out is to hold in the power button. I never had this problem prior to the installation, and ive checked for viruses and everything came back clean. Is there some way to fix this/how do i revert to windows vista?

.net Framework 3.5 Family Update Keeps Coming Back To Update List

It is the 12th time i install the microsoft .net framework 3. 5 service pack 1 and .net framework 3. 5 family update, (kb951847) x86, it keeps coming back to my windows update list. I have checked all the forums and i see a lot of people having the same problem i have. The difference is that they always say they got an error message, i didn't. I am not an expert, but i'm happy to say that i have never had trouble with windows vista. Here is the link to a screen-shot of the update history in my computer.

Screen Flicker

When running outlook 2007, firefox (3. 5. 6 and 3. 5. 7), on windows 7 home prem, i get a very fast flicker on the screen. It flashes the desktop very briefly. This happen typically when i am browsing  or doing something. I also run phoenix (a flight simulator) and then it happens more often say 1 x 20 sec. I have been able to see that in the top menu bar i see "not responding" for maybe a 10th of a second. I also get this in ie8. I had a nvida 9500gt and have exchanged this for a ati radeon hd4670, and still have the same problem. It seems to be app independent.

Mouse Control And Screen Flicker Problems

Windows 7 mouse control and screen flicker problems with microsoft applications such as word 2007, iexplorer 8, microsoft games (solitaire, freecell etc. ) I just upgraded from vista ultimate 64 to windows 7 ultimate 64 and microsoft applications that worked perfectly with vista are acting strange with win7.

I first noticed this issue while playing solitaire. It starts out ok, but after a short time, when i try to move cards around, i can select the card with my mouse, but i can't drag it. It won't move. When this happens, the solitaire window flashes or flickers once or twice and the solitaire icon in the taskbar is jumping sideways to the right and back again. This problem is documented in a thread on the games portion of this forum. Eventually i can move the card, but the problem happens over and over.

At first i thought it was just an issue with solitaire, but today when i was working on a word 2007 document i had very similar issues when i was trying to adjust indents by dragging the indent stops on the ruler. The same type of behavior occurred i.e. Screen flicker and could not drag the stop. I have the word shortcut pinned to the taskbar and it wasn't jumping sideways.

Similar problem trying to resize browser windows in explorer8. I can grab the window and start stretching, but the screen will flash and i drop the handle on the window. What i have tried so far is a clean boot, disabling start up programs and ending all but microsoft processes using msconfig. This didn't change a thing. I have the latest win7 ati video card driver (radeon hd 4890) and win7 mouse and keyboard drivers (microsoft wireless desktop elite). Batteries are good inthe mouse and keyboard. Any help with this would be appreciated. Any ideas?

Windows Media Player 12 Makes Screen Flicker In Programs

Windows media player 12 in windows 7 makes the screen "flicker" in some programs. I recently installed windows 7 home premium (x64 bit version) on my main computer, and so far am loving it. Recently however, as i've reinstalled many of the programs i had on my previous xp install, i started noticing this strange white flickering in some full-screen programs which seemed fairly random.

The game space empires: v, published by strategy first, is the most striking example i have found. Changing the program to run in windowed mode fixes the problem, but then i'm stuck with a window at 1024 x 768 resolution (can't be changed), which is a bit hard to see on my native monitor resolution of 1680 x 1050, not to mention aero cuts down on the performance by a fairly large chunk.

The problem seemed to come and go randomly until i noticed one common variable: i always had wmp open and playing music in the background whenever it happened. Closing wmp and running the program solved the problem every time. I've tried reinstalling wmp, reinstalling the other program, trying every graphical option in the program, all to no avail.

I'm using windows media player version 12. 0. 7600. 16415, and windows 7 x64 bit with all updates installed. This isn't the first major problem i've encountered with this version of wmp either, i can count at least 3 others, but nothing as annoying or disruptive as this.

Reset Back To Admin Account In Xp Mode

I have set the admin acct to limited user in xp mode, is there a way to reset to admin? I set the xp mode user to limited for security reasons, only to realize later that it was the admin account that i had changed. As a limited user i can't run my xp software because it requires the user to be a power user or administrator. I'm looking for a way to get an admin acct back in xp mode. Or, if i need to reinstall xp mode how can i save my data? I would need a fairly detailed explanation as i am new to windows 7.

Troubleshooting Sleep Mode

I have a brand new hp laptop w/fingerprint reader. It's has continually had a problem coming out of sleep mode. When i was using just a password it would always tell me my password was invalid, when i started using the fingerprint reader it always says it doesn't recognize the reader. I could do a hard reboot (disconnect power and remove battery) and it would cure the issue. This last time i did a hard reboot the computer started up, the screen flashed and went black and it will not and has not allowed me to do anything. Keyboard and mouse do not function, black screen. Lights on the keyboard come on and the fans work but that's it!

Win7 Would Freeze After Sleep Mode

Windows 7 would freeze after sleep mode and a hard reboot would fix it. Until this last time went to awake it up and i got the normal freeze screen when i went to hard reboot nothing happens other then my fans spin lights come on and the cd drive.

Programs you are having problems with my keyboard will not light up nor will my screen turn on. I tried removing ram and swapping it around, unplugged hard drives, unplugged everything and checked all connections and even removed the battery from my mother board. My motherboard is an asus m2n-sli deluxe with a 3. 2 duel core athlon.nvidia 8800 gt i believe.

Keyboard Dead During Sleep Mode

To date i've been impressed with windows 7. I now have an issue that will have me moving to unix or back to windows xp if i cannot find a resolution quickly. I noticed recently when the pc was asleep that i couldn't wake it using [usb] kbd or [ps/2] mouse.

Pressing caps lock on keyboard gives no result as if power to the kbd has been removed. The only way i am able to get out of sleep mode is to press the front-panel reset button. I'm loathe to do that too often. I'm not aware of any changes made to the computer that coincided with this problem starting. Any ideas what could be going on here? Where do you start troubleshooting if the keyboard and mouse are unresponsive?

After Update Sleep Mode Is Broken

I had my computer set to go to sleep after about 20 minutes or so and when i would wake it up, it would immediately show the login screen and i would type my password and then the desktop would show up right away. Well then i installed some "update" and now when i go to wake my computer up it starts all the way back from my bios, running the bios initialization and essentially starting windows as if i just turned my computer on, then it takes forever to load up the password screen and after i enter my password it takes another few minutes to load my desktop. This is unacceptable its actually faster to shut my computer down and turn it back on!

Hdd Problem With Sleep Mode

When the computer goes into suspend, it hangs the hard drives, and doesn't spin them down. Im using win 7, 64, and i am wondering if theres a control panel or something that governs how the computer suspends itself. Im curious to know if you have ever heard of hdd's that do not have the spin-down feature in them. Why i am curious, is that these 2 250gb hdds came out of a raid array, and they are spec built to be continuous (for server type use that never spin down)which may be the problem. I don't know if its hardware or software.

Sound Dead After Sleep Mode

Every time my computer goes into sleep mode, and i turn it back on again the sound is gone. I've searched for hours and hours trying things suggested to others with the exact same problem. I've done troubleshooting steps, uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, trying different settings in the sound control panel. Nothing. My computer is a self-built running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, i've got a gigabyte mobo with onboard realtek hd. I'm about to resort to just reformatting my entire hdd and reinstalling windows because i'm pretty much convinced there is no fix. This is my exact motherboard: http://www.Newegg.

Cannot Print After Resuming From Sleep Mode

Will not print after sleep mode with win 7 pro, after coming out of sleep mode, 2 printers will not print. I need to restart/reboot, and upon restart printers begin printing jobs in que. Same happens when coming out of sleep mode on win 7, when trying to print from networked win xp pro pc. I need to restart the win 7 pro pc. Printers are hp laserjet 3030 and hp deskjet 6122 (with deskjet 990c driver for the hp 6122). I have had this problem since set up of my win 7 pro pc in feb 2010; haven't found an answer yet.

This new pc has 2. 8 ghz amd athlon ii x64 7850, with 4 gb ram, 500 gb hd (only using 10% of hd). I have avast home, lavasoft ad-aware, threatfire; all in memory; windows firewall or comodo firewall set at different times - never on at the same time. Right now this is the major glitch. I know that network printing will not work when win 7 pro pc is in sleep mode; but after coming out of sleep mode printing is no longer available. I have run the troubleshooter countless times, but so far no answers.

Pc Does Not Respond After Waking From Sleep Mode

This is beginning to happen more frequently. I put my computer to sleep, and 5 minutes within logging and using anything (ex.google chrome or itunes), the application freezes. I then click alt-control-delete, but it never pops up (usually works). Then i go the taskbar and it shows a "explorer.exe not responding. ". Then the whole computer just freezes, and then only thing i can do is hold down the power button for a force shutdown. My wife's computer is also windows 7, and it always works (doesn't "not respond") when she wakes it from sleep. So its something with my computer. Is there any solution for this?

Computer Wont Come Out Of Sleep Mode

My computer wont come out of sleep mode. Screen will go black after some time. Than using the mouse and keyboard wont wake it up. The screen stays black. Yet the light on the monitor stays green instead of orange (it has signal but nothing is there) i have to hold the power button and kill it than reboot to get the screen back. I never had any hardware problems in xp but im new to windows7 and still getting familiar with it. Figured somebody would ask some system specs.
I just installed windows the other day and downloaded newest drivers for everything. Also got all automatic updates.

In power settings turn off the display is set to 10 minutes, and sleep mode is set to never so im guessing its not really going into sleep mode. I now went in and looked at some settings and made some changes. In advanced settings i turned off hybrid sleep (i dont know what it does) i saw selective usb suspend setting that was enabled (dont know what it means) could that be turning off my mouse and keyboard thus why i cant wake it up? I turned off all sleep mode features now. And disabled all hibernate/turn off display features. And am going to let it sit for awhile and see if it does it again. I will report back if this works.

Cannot Go Into Sleep Mode After Being Left Idle

Windows 7 home premium, dell inspiron 1545 laptop. My laptop will not go to sleep after being left idle. I have checked all power options, including allowing the laptop to sleep when sharing multimedia. I have checked the device manager for hardware which can wake my laptop. There are no programs which are scheduled etc. When the battery reaches the critical level, my laptop does go into hibernate mode. I am currently using the default power saving power options which do not work. I am fairly sure my laptop used to go to sleep with windows 7 installed, but have no idea what has been changed and don't fancy formatting etc. This is driving me mad. I'm not a computer novice, and have googled, tried loads of different options etc.
