Re: Problem With Laptop Computer Sleep Functions

Have you done a virus scan?
Or, it may be time to call Microsoft Accessibility and have them log in and see if they can figure out what is happening. 
I hope it gets resolved.

Hello, everyone.


A few days ago, I started noticing that my Dell Lattitude Windows 7 laptop no longer goes to sleep when not in use.  I have the monitor set to turn off after a few minutes of non-use both on battery and AC power.  The same goes for the entire computer itself.


I have gone into the sleep timer menu and verified that everything is set the way I would like, and made sure to save my changed settings.  But my computer still runs constantly now, even when it is not being  used.


I realize that this is likely not a Jaws problem, so I hope it is not considered to be too “off topic” for this list.


Any help would be appreciated.
