well same thing happen to me. my computer still can't get out of sleep mode. but to solve your turning the computer ON problem. what i do is turn it on, then wait, u will hear the computer turning itself on and off, but nothing is showing on the screen. so make it turn on and off, 3 time.( such as hearing the computer turned off, so that one,THEN IT TURNS ITSELF ON AGAIN, next time it turns off, that count as 2, and so on). on the third shut off then u press and hold the off button, to force it to shut down, then wait. about 5-10min., or less then 5. after then u turn the computer on.it should be on by now. if not try it again. if it happens again try one more time, if it happens again. then there something really wrong with your computer.


HOPE THIS HELPS.

Okay there might be a solution that worked for me. I also have a Windows Vista Compaq laptop and i was experiencing the same problem. What you should do is turn it off manually. If your laptop dosn't after that. then hit the power button once and wait 5 seconds then hit it again but do not turn it off. It should go back to regular settings and work.

Try to download the latest drivers for the video and the chipset, that worked for one hp pavilion with vista home OS, we tryed every possible and even reinstaled the video drivers but seems wern't the wrong ones, any way it's already solved.
Our opinion is that some updates from microsoft are doing something whit it.

Hi- This kept happening to my dell laptop (which also runs vista). The guys at dell were able to remotely uninstall and reinstall my Display adapter (in the Control Panel, under Device Managers). This seems to have worked. My dispay adapter was named Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family. It's not clear whether there was an update or patch that could have fixed this....

HELP- Aug 12, 2009 11:15PM
My new laptop that runs on vista is doing the exact same thing. How do I contact Dell to see if I'm having the same problem as you?

hi, your computer may be going to sleep because it's battery is not holding a charge. Try taking the battery out and plugging in the power pak and then powering on the machine. If it powers up you might most likely have a bad battery. Some computers won't power on without the battery in place. depends on the maker. Try another battery if possible , charged would help. If the battery is good, but not charged, the internal battery charger may be gone.

I inherited an HP laptop w/Vista because of the same issue. Based on what I read online, Vista was the linking factor in all the posts, even after upgrading to 7. I ended up reformatting the HD and doing a completely fresh install of XP and then 7 (couldn't boot directly from my 7 disk). I'm back on 7 now and just woke it up from sleep without a problem!! Hope this helps those still suffering with this issue!!

press the power button for one second (no longer)

or, you can always try to hold the power button down for 5 full seconds
this will power down the laptop
then press the power button again & see if that works for you
