Computer in "Sleep Mode"
« on: December 15, 2009, 03:16:09 PM »
Our dear Diane's computer shut itself down in the sleep mode on Thursday morning and they cannot "wake it up." What does she do? If Brother Richard knows the answer, would you please call her and walk her through it? We have no other way to communicate the answer to her. Thank you so much.

BTW, Diane sends her love to Marelis.

 :D Be that as it may, I am thoroughly enjoying the larger type PDF of History of the Reformation.  Other than that, I too prefer to have a book in my hands.

Hope she's back online soon.

I have been called many things, but that is definitely unique.

I enjoy snow as long as I am looking out at it from a cozy house.  ;)

This phrase in Google brings up a lot of info: "can't wake laptop from sleep mode"
O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps. O Lord, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing. Jeremiah  10:23-24

Is the computer still on but is in sleep or hibernate mode? If that is true then and no keyboard or mouse inputs will wake it then the best thing to do is to force the computer off. Actually you left with no choice. You can hold down the "power button" until the computer turns off or remove the power cord from the back of the computer and reconnect and turn it back on.

She is having it checked out. Seems there is a problem with a power switch and it is more than a hibernating computer.

My computer does the same thing, but I can wake it up by pressing the power button just mometarily.  Just a little  touch so as not to turn it off.

Thank you kindly!  It is so good to be back and I've missed all of you more that I can say. Unfortunately, the old computer could not be fixed.  But, we were blessed to be able to get a new one.  The Lord is good!   :)

Good to have you back with us, Sister Diane! God is indeed good!  My computer quit working also. It had maybe 500 hours on it and it went dead. It was the power supply. I am thankful it was not the motherboard!!
