Dell Inspiron 15 5558 sleeps when I plug in AC adapter while using it

This question has suggested answer(s)

Hey guys.


So I like to think I'm pretty good with PCs considering i do the maintenance on my own whenever I need to. However, this computer is pretty new, about a week old. But I noticed that half the time, when i plug in my adpater to charge my laptop while I'm using it, it goes to sleep. I know it's asleep because (a) the fan stops running and (b) it's woken up quickly using typical methods to wake a computer.


Anyone got a clue about how to prevent it from auto-sleeping?

Thanks!

  • Hi Sarouk,

    I would suggest you to update the BIOS and Video card driver on the system. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the BIOS from BIOS section and Video card driver from Video section onto the system and install it.

    In addition, Please run the diagnostics on the computer by following the steps mentioned in the video below and check if there is any issue with the memory on your system.

    Also, I would suggest you to run a thorough test on the system. You can download Support Assist from the link below and run the PC CHECKUP on system to check for issues
