  1. Computer not going into sleep mode when idle, even after checking power management settings


    Hi!


    Our family laptop is not going into sleep mode when idle. It also sounds like it is processing something all the time even when not used.

    I already checked the power management options see attachment 1.


    Next, I used a diagnostics tool to pinpoint what it is that prevents the computer from going into sleep mode see attachment 2.

    Unfortunately, I am not getting any wiser from those results, so wouldn't know what the next steps could be.


    I'm at a loss. Anyone who knows how to solve this problem?


    Thank you for your help!

    Kind regards.



    PS: The attachments are in Dutch. Sorry about that! I can translate it if needed.

  2. Computer stopped going into sleep mode

    Hello, Kiran.

    My computer is up to date and I didn't change any settings prior or after the update

    I tried step one, but I haven't wait the time required for the computer to go into sleep mode. I did change the 30 minute wait to 10 minutes. So, I'll wait and see what happens

    Bluetooth still on while idle

    Thanks for following the steps. Now, the settings won't take effect if you are only using normal PC idle mode. Normal functionality of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi settings are to stay connected even if PC is idle. With the settings that you have created, we would
    suggest that you set your PC to automatically go to Sleep or
    Hibernate
    once idle. In this way, the settings "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" should take effect.

    To set your PC to automatically go to Sleep or Hibernate when idle, please follow these steps:

    • Open Control Panel, set view by: Small
      icons.
    • Look for Power Options.
    • Click on Change when the computer sleeps on the left pane.
    • Set a timer.

    Please try it out. Hope it helps. If you have any other concerns, don't hesitate to come back to us.

    High Idle power consumption

    Hi,

    A laptop in idle still drains the battery. It can be one of the lists below are the reasons why your discharging faster.

    • The power plan is on High-Performance. It consumes more energy because it maximizes the computer's usage. Toggle it as Balanced by going to Control Panel > System and Security > Power Options.
    • Too many background applications running. We can check this by going to Windows Settings > System > Battery saver > Battery usage by app. You can set adjust the settings of your battery there as well. Also, please follow the tips on the window on how you
      can manage your battery.
    • You use the second graphics card as your display to an external monitor.
    • Using sleep mode instead of hibernate mode. Hibernate mode is advisable to use when stepping away from the device for very long.

    In addition to this, you can run the automatic troubleshooter to
    find and fix problems with your computer's power settings to conserve power and extend battery life
    .

    Feel free to post back if you need further help.
