Sleep not working as it did


J

Jeff

When I first installed Vista (Home Premium), I enabled sleep mode and noticed
when sleep was invoked my computer got quiet (I could hear the drive and fan
going quiet) and would notice the light indicating my computer on my wireless
network router would go out. That was great! However, now when I invoke
sleep, I just notice the monitor going blank, that's it. Any ideas would
welcome. Thanks!

Sounds like the computer could be setup to go into 'Away Mode' if you've
setup Media Center it probably made this change.

Check in Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> Power Options -> Change
when the computer sleeps -> Change advanced power settings -> Multimedia
settings. From here you can allow the computer to sleep, not sleep (away
mode), or not idle to sleep.

Thanks Paul. This seems to have fixed my issue. My machine now truly goes
to sleep - not just the monitor.
