  • Forum Thread: Inspiron 15r N5110 Sleep Issue

    I just got my 15r a few weeks ago and as soon as I got it I noticed that when I tried to put it to sleep by closing the lid it would become stuck in a semi-sleep state (screen off, power light on, non-responsive, and it would begin to get very hot). The only way I found to get it out of this state was...
  • Forum Thread: Wireless card/connection not responsive after sleep/hibernation

    I have an Inspiron 5010 that will not re-establish its wireless connection after the computer goes to sleep. The only way to get it to reconnect to the wireless connection is to reboot.

  • Forum Thread: Why do my sleep and hibernate functions not work well -- power management issue?

    Does anyone have a thought for me on this? My new Lattitude laptop powers back on (sort of) when in either sleep or hibernate modes, but I have to power off in order to get the computer to start.

    My E5400 often turns itself on when in sleep or hibernate mode. I have the latest A12 BIOS, and I have reset all settings to default, and then turned off anything that looks like it could cause the PC to wake up: wake on LAN, wake on USB, daily wake-up timer etc. I'm using WIndows Vista, and I haven't...

  • Forum Thread: Laptop shuts down / crashes after closing lid - used to hibernate/sleep

    Dell E6500 - few years old. Now shuts down after closing the lid after several hours - at least when left closed over night - even when on AC power.

    Is there a way to put my Inspiron 15Z laptop into sleep mode by using only the keyboard? I know that I can do it by using Alt - F4, but that method requires me to close all existing open applications - would like to do it directly and not have to close down everything.
