Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook

1 Answer

I can't get my IBM ThinkPd out of sleep mode. (I'm using another computer right now.) I tried taking the battery out and unplugging it for 20 minutes, pressing power button, holding power button down, pressing Fn, F8, F4, F12...I can't even get a light or a fan noise. Can you help me? Thank you!

It sounds like a failed motherboard, If it was stuck in sleep mode the computer would still turn on.

try leaving the battery removed plug in the laptop and see if it turns on, if not it sounds like a bad component on the motherboard.

My Toshiba Satellite S75D-A7272 laptop has always had a problem with getting it out of sleep mode. Is there a fix for this?


Sleep or standby mode should allow your computer to conserve energy yet respond quickly to power back on when you need it. Most Toshiba laptops should exit sleep mode if you press a key on the keyboard or use the trackpad mouse. If the lid was closed, opening it should also wake up the computer. If none of these methods work to bring the computer out of sleep mode, you may have a power issue or software glitch. Causes Insufficient power can cause this problem, so try plugging in your Toshiba laptop before attempting to wake it from sleep mode. If this does not immediately fix the issue, your problem is more likely a software issue. If your laptop was shut down incorrectly prior to the sleep mode incident, it may be stuck on a blank screen that makes it appear to be in sleep mode when it actually is trying to start up.
Indications Press the power button for a few seconds to see if your computer will wake up. If it does, the laptop was not truly stuck in sleep mode, but rather went into hibernation mode. If your laptop is truly stuck in sleep mode, you may be able to force a shutdown by holding down the power button, but when you power back up it will move right back into sleep mode. In some cases, the power button may not shut down the computer from this mode at all.
Solution The best way to solve your Toshiba's problem is to completely remove all power from the laptop to ensure a fresh restart. Close the laptop's lid, turn over the unit and remove the battery. Also remove the power adapter cord from both the laptop and the wall socket. Open the laptop lid and press and hold the power button for approximately 20 seconds. This will drain any stored power in the backup battery. Wait a few seconds, then put the battery back in, plug in the laptop and press the power button to turn on the computer. It may start up with an error screen; in this case, select the option to start your computer normally. If the error recurs, start the computer in "Safe Mode" to see if a program running on your computer outside of the basic Windows operating system is causing the problem.
Further Help Sometimes this issue also requires holding down a specific key, such as "F8," when you restart. If the basic power drain and restart process doesn't work, you can use Toshiba's support website to look up further information for your specific model. Just click the "Product support" tab and enter your laptop's model information, then read through the support bulletins listed for your particular Toshiba model. Toshiba also maintains a support hotline at Call us : +1 850-610-1013 https://www.instantprintersupport.com/toshiba-printer-support

Prostart 6 button in sleep mode


Sleep mode is a convenient power-saving feature used on both laptops and desktop computers. This feature powers down hard disks, monitors, wireless devices and any other power-consuming peripherals without turning the unit completely off and necessitating a reboot. Sleep mode can prevent battery drain if using a laptop or mobile device while away from the power supply. This mode is useful when quick access to a computer is needed, but can be irritating if the sleep mode takes a long time to come back from. It is simple to turn sleep mode off, based on the operating system being used.

Go to the "Start" button, then click on "Control Panel." In the control panel screen, click "System and Maintenance," then click on "Power Options." This brings you to the "Select a power plan" page. From the "Select a power plan" page, select the option that says "Change plan settings." This changes the settings on the currently selected plan. Select the "Change advanced power settings" option. Click "Sleep" and then click on "Sleep After" to expand it. If using a laptop or mobile PC, click "On battery" and "Plugged in," then select the "Never" option. This turns off sleep mode for both battery and AC use. If you are using a desktop computer, click "Setting," click the arrow and then click "Never" to turn off sleep mode. Click "OK," then click "Save changes" to save the modification. b> Turning Off Sleep Mode - Mac OS b> Click on the Apple logo at the upper left corner of the screen to open the menu and select the "System Preferences" option. From the "System Preferences" screen, click on "Energy Saver." If you are using a desktop, select "Power Adapter" in the top drop-down menu. In the second drop-down menu, select "Custom." Highlight the "Sleep" tab, then adjust the top slider to the far right, marked "Never." I f you wish the display to stay on, adjust the bottom slider to "Never." Click the red button on the upper left side of the "Energy Saver" screen. If you are using a mobile product or laptop, follow step 2 and select "Battery" from the top drop-down menu. Repeat step 3 to change the settings for battery use. Hope this helps.

My dell Studio laptop takes too long to wake from sleep mode and the monitor just flickers when i try to switch on


If you use Windows 7, u might have hybrid sleep activated. This is similar to hibernate. When u choose SLEEP, your computer goes to hibernate. Sometimes this hibernate just hangs. You have to reboot computer.
Try pressing the power button for several seconds (10-15). It should power off the laptop.
If not, unplug the charger and remove the battery for a few minutes. Then try to start it up again.

Sleep vs Shut down


It depends on how long computer is being used in a day.
for general use
you can shutdown your computer once in 2 days but i highly recommend not to put in sleep mode and betting putting in hibernate mode instead of sleep mode.
note: most of simple issues are resolved by restarting PC so you can guess now how important is to shut down computer.

Good luck,
