  1. Computer goes to sleep and refuses to wake up.


    I use an OptiPlex 3050 at work. I restarted the computer to install the updates. It restarted and then went to sleep. The power button flashes orange three times and white six times. I have to hold the power button for it to go off. When I hit the power button again it shows a white light and then immediately starts the orange and white light pattern again. I have tried unplugging the computer and plugging it into another outlet, pressing the windows key on the keyboard, the space bar all to no avail. I simply cannot get the computer to come back up. Anyone have any other suggestions. There is no antivirus on this computer other than what Windows may provide.

    :)

    Sorry for that stupid line, I couldn't resist. *Frown Computer goes to sleep and refuses to wake up. :(

    Maybe you have something configured to sleep when idle. Check that on your power settings.

  3. Computer Wakes Up From Sleep And Goes Back To Sleep?

    I built my very own computer with Windows 8 running however, I wanted something new instead of Windows 7 that I've been on for years. Anyways, I put it to sleep, it wakes up and then a little after, it goes back to sleep. Why? It also does turn on in it's own and it's something that Windows 8 programs it to do for maintenance or something and I don't know how to turn that off?

    All answers are appreciated, thank you! God bless! Happy holidays!
