No screen

Hi,

It happens to one of the PCs in the office.  I set 2 hours in the power options to put computer to sleep.  But after 2 hours, when the mouse is moved, the hdd starts turning, so you know the computer is starting.  But there is no screen, the only thing to do is to reboot the pc everyday when this person comes to the office.  I checked the driver, everything is good.  Any ideas?  thx

Is there a third party power manager?  Lenovo machines have this. Uninstall the power manager, restart, download the most recent power manager and install it.

If there is a third party power manager, use the same program (Balanced, say) for both the power manager and for Windows power management.

If there is not a third party power manager, run System File Checker, restart and run all Windows Updates including Recommended Updates. Then set up the power program and test.

To run System File Checker, open an admin command prompt and run SFC /SCANNOW twice. Allow to complete and restart.

It is a Lenovo box, I checked Lenovo software, it is all up to date, and I rebuilt this box about two weeks ago, so everything is up to date.....thanks
Remove Lenovo Power Manager (Control Panel, Programs and Features), restart and test to see if Windows Power Management works better.

Also try updating the BIOS and Chipset in case those got missed.
