    Re: Can't wake up Windows Vista PC from Standby mode

    hi dere,
    the problem might be due to the following reason:
    *your batteries might be running low, the computer may not have enough power to come out of Sleep Mode.
    so just do the following to get any help:
    *click any key from keyboard as sometimes it helps to come out from SLEEP MODE.
    *Move or clcik your mouse,It might help.
    *Press and hold the power button on your computer for five seconds. This should bring the computer out of Sleep Mode, or it will do the opposite and cause a complete shutdown, which should allow you to then restart the computer normally.
    OR
    Remove the battery. This should force a total reset of your system, and the computer should restart normally once power is restored.
    Hope this will help...

    Instructions


      • 1Plug your computer into a wall socket if it isn't already. If your batteries are running low, the computer may not have enough power to come out of Sleep Mode.


      • 2Push any key on the keyboard. Many computers respond to any activity and come out of Sleep Mode with the push of a key.







      • 3Search your keyboard for a sleep-specific key. It is normally near the top of the keyboard and has a symbol of a half moon on it. Your computer may require the push of the sleep key specifically to bring the computer in and out of Sleep Mode manually.


      • 4Move and click your mouse, since many computers also respond to that stimuli to come out of power-saving modes.


      • 5Press and hold the power button on your computer for five seconds. This should bring the computer out of Sleep Mode, or it will do the opposite and cause a complete shutdown, which should allow you to then restart the computer normally.


      • 6Unplug the computer and remove the battery if it has one. This should force a total reset of your system, and the computer should restart normally once power is restored. If it doesn't, there is something else wrong with your computer and your system likely needs servicing.
