Be sure to call it in.
They may have a patch, driver or solution. At the very least you will log the issue to ease the return of the defective product.
computer waking from sleep mode
Try this. Go to device manager, network adaptors, NIC, power mangement, uncheck box for "allow this device to bring computer out of standby". Good luck. Give us feedback.
The sleep function works perfectly now. Thank you! It was very frustrating because HP or Microsoft did not have a solution.Thank You!....Thank You!
But what about remote access?
That works fine for the sleep issue, but now that network traffic won't bring my computer out of sleep, I can't remotely access my computer's contents. I use Orb (http://www.orb.com/orb/) to remotely access; it has the ability to bring my computer out of sleep, but apparently relies upon that selection being on.
vista won't stay asleep
I have same problem but my network wasn't checked. Any other ideas?
Vista won't sleep, keeps waking right back up.
I searched long and hard to find the right answer to my problem and this fixed it. I owe many thanks and all the credit to kingofnexus @ Vista Forums, I hope he/she doesn't mind me showing it to you. My problem turned out to be in Media center (although this link addresses many other sleep issues with Vista). This is well written and easy to follow, took me less than a minute to straighten out the sleep issue after finding this post.
"Vista not sleeping properly? Won't go to sleep? Won't stay asleep? This is the topic for you!
Nearly all sleep problems are caused by devices that are set to be able to wake the computer back up again.They can wake your computer instantly, randomly, or can cause your computer not to fully enter sleep mode and even cause it never to wake up. If you have any problems similar to the ones described then the following could be your cure. http://www.vistaforums.com/Forum/Topic15582-9-1.aspx
Advanced Users: Check the system event log. The "power-troubleshooter" source will tell you what woke it up out of sleep. If it says "Wake Source: Unknown" Its most likely to do with step 3.
computer waking up from sleep mode
This fix worked for me! (Dell XPS410 running Vista SP2) This was deeply appreciated because each time I needed to leave the computer for a couple of hours I would have to shut it down completely then when turning it back on I had to wait until Vista could rouse it's creaking, arthritic operating system back to productive life. Thank you Glennlee.
I'll happily marry you glenlee
Brilliant i have struggled for 6 months and this was instant, i also had to make sure that on my power options i had selected and option that had computer never shuts down. Awesome, thanks.
If you have a wireless mouse or keyboard
If you have a wireless mouse or keyboard connected, then there were a couple fixes that MS had. One was a patch, another was to stop the PCMservice.
