Computer Stand By

2 Likes Comment

When a computer is left alone for a while, it goes into “sleep” or “stand by” mode to save energy. In stand by mode, the computer slows down its inner processes because they are not being used. The computer also blacks out the monitor. If you wish to use a computer and the monitor is dark, check to see if it is in stand by before you try to start it up. Usually, the computer has a green light on or near the power button that signifies that it is on, but in stand by mode. To “wake it up,” move the mouse or hit a key on the keyboard. In about 8-10 seconds the computer will wake up and be fully functional. If
you do not realize that the computer is in stand by and you try to turn it on with the power button, the computer will wake up and a dialogue box will appear, but it will not damage the computer.
