Screen not comming back after standby

I'm working with some laptops.  If they go on standby I cannot get the screen to come back.  Everything else comes back up, pretty sure - at least the hard disk does.  But the screen remains blank.

Anyone have any ideas?

Note: everything comes up fine if I turn the laptop off and turn it back on...

What sort of laptops?  Dell Inspiron by any chance?  The recommended solution with them is to 'press F8 a few tiimes.'  I have to say it doesn't always work...

These are HP nx9010's.  But I will try that.  Thanks.

I wonder if there might be a way to run something on coming back from standby, kind of like a logon script?

That's fairly recent.  I'd go to:-

(Watch out for line-wrap!)

and report the problem.

JohnT,

Thanks!  This has not fixed the problem... yet.  But I can't imagine a better path to follow to get there.

I got exactly the same problem, with a Dell Latitude running Win ME.  The strange thing is this one does resume, but it takes more than 30 mins.

juanitovargas,

New question.  Please start a new thread under either Hardware - laptops - or Windows ME and say what points you want to give
for an answer.

[Unless, of course. the Dell Inspiron 'press F8 a few times' suggestion works for you.]
