Windows® 7 Sleep Mode Problem
Get to know more about sleep mode issue in Windows 7
The purpose of "sleep mode" on a system is to conserve energy and protect your system's hard drive. Putting your system in sleep mode is similar to pausing a movie in a DVD player. A sleep mode is an energy-saving mode of operation in which all unnecessary components are shut down. Many battery-operated devices, such as notebooks supports sleep mode. When a notebook computer goes into sleep mode, it shuts down the display screen of the system and drive. Once awakened, the system returns to its former operating status. The sleep mode in the system might make many issues such as error messages. You need to fix this issue as soon as you can. Otherwise this might start various issues in the system.
The following are the reasons for sleep mode issue in Windows 7:
- Fix Settings in the System
- Check Devices
- Startup Processes
Fix Settings in System
One of the reasons for the automatic sleep mode in Windows 7 system is the incorrect settings. You might have your "standby" settings set incorrectly for the wont sleep issue in the system. To check, go to the desktop and right click, then choose Properties from the menu. Select the Screen Saver tab and click the "Power" button. Next to "System standby" check the amount of time indicated before your idle computer goes into sleep mode. If "never" is the selection, the sleep mode won't activate automatically.
Some of the damaged devices in Windows 7 also have the ability to activate the sleep mode automatically. If you're using a wireless keyboard or mouse for your system, then these items could keep your system from entering sleep mode automatically because they constantly send a signal to the system, blocking it from being idle. An optical mouse (that changes colors) causes this similar issue.
The automatic loading of the programs in the system also has the ability to activate sleep mode automatically. Programs that run automatically when you boot your computer can interfere with the sleep mode function. Be sure to change the settings on these programs so that they don't run at startup. You could remove the unnecessary start up processes from the system configuration utility. For this you just need to type as msconfig in the Run. Then you could see the system configuration utility and after this you could disable the unnecessary programs from the list.
