How do I get my Lenovo desktop out of standby mode?

Answered by Robert Dupre

To get your Lenovo desktop out of standby mode, you can follow the steps below:

1. Start by clicking on the “Start” button in the bottom left corner of your desktop screen.
2. From the Start menu, click on the “Settings” icon, which looks like a gear.
3. In the Settings window, click on the “System” option.
4. From the left-hand side menu, select “Power & sleep”.
5. On the right-hand side, you will see the power and sleep settings. Click on the “Additional power settings” link.
6. This will open the Power Options window. Here, you will see a list of power plans available on your computer. Look for the one that is currently selected (usually the “Balanced” plan) and click on the “Change plan settings” link next to it.
7. On the next screen, click on the “Change advanced power settings” link.
8. A new window will appear with advanced power options. Look for the “Sleep” section and expand it by clicking on the plus sign next to it.
9. Within the Sleep section, you will find options such as “Sleep after” and “Hibernate after”. Set both of these options to “Never” from the drop-down menus.
10. Once you have set both options to “Never”, click on the “OK” button to save the changes.
11. Close all the open windows and restart your Lenovo desktop.

By following these steps, you have disabled the sleep and hibernate modes on your Lenovo desktop, ensuring that it stays awake and does not go into standby mode. This means that your computer will remain active and accessible at all times, without entering a low-power state.

It’s worth mentioning that disabling sleep and hibernate modes can result in increased power consumption, as your computer will be constantly running. However, this can be useful in situations where you need your desktop to be always available, such as when using it as a server or when performing tasks that require uninterrupted operation.

I hope this helps you get your Lenovo desktop out of standby mode. If you have any further questions or need clarification, feel free to ask.
