Sometimes My M14x Goes To Sleep Mode After Some Time But When I Press The Power Button It Doesn't Wake Up At All... The Only Way Get It To Work Is The Force Shotdown (Holding The Power Key For » 8 Sec).....What Might Be Causing This ?

There are settings under the power section that will tell your pc how to respond when performing certain things. I.E.. pressing the power button to bring the PC out of sleep mode may not be set. To check these settings do the following:

If running Windows 7. Go to control panel -> power options -> (left side of screen) choose what power buttons do

Check those settings to see what they are set at. Typically these settings apply to putting the computer to sleep but they also affect how it wakes.

Also make sure "Hybrid Sleep" is disabled. Go to control panel -> power options -> change plan settings for current plan -> change advanced power settings -> expand sleep -> disable hybrid sleep


I would also double check your AlienFusion settings if you are using the Alienware Command Center.\

On a side note..I would never recommend using the sleep function on a PC. I would set the PC to simply turn off the screen to prevent screen burn, and let everything else go into low power state on its own rather than "sleeping" the PC. Typically when returning from sleep the information that is exchanged between RAM and the HD never works how it was designed to work. You will notice issues in the long run.

So basically just change the power settings to never sleep automatically and just use Hibernate when your not going to use it for a while. How do you make it change to a low power state after a set amount of time? I know how to do the other stuff but as far as the processor, gpu ect. what do you do for those?

also if you want a good tip is to change the closing lid settings to do nothing, but guess you already know that
