Help!! How can I stop my Dell Latitude from going into sleep mode?

  • When my Dell Latitude goes into sleep mode (screen or hard drive) it is impossible to wake it up. Of course I have turned this energy savement options of. However that does not help. It still turns off whenever the lid goes down - and it does as soon as my wife se my computer. Then I have to pull out the power supply and remove the battery to get the computor to shot down, so that I can restart it. I am close to a nervous break-down!┬áPlease help me!!!
  • In order to change what the computer does when the lid is closed. Go to control panel, then power options. On the left hand side, there should be "Choose what closing the lid does." Click on "do nothing" under the "When I close the lid" choice. Hopefully, that'll help.
  • As I wrote, I already did that, but the computer does not obey that command. It goes into "sleep mode" anyway.
  • I'm sorry that I have misunderstood you.
