its slips moden often
Sleep mode puts your computer into a low-power state, ready to be woken when you want to resume work. The computer lights back up when it awakens. Various things can wake a computer out of sleep mode, including scheduled tasks and other devices or pieces of hardware requesting access to it.
Even if your computer dozes off, it will wake up if the hard drive initiates a previously scheduled task. These types of tasks include defragmenting, searching for Windows Updates and running anti-virus scans. Unless you specifically tell each of these programs to not wake the computer to run, they'll do just that. You can adjust this in the program's settings or check the Task Scheduler for a list of what may be waking the computer. Select one of the scheduled tasks and check when it's scheduled to run. If it runs at a time when the computer typically sleeps, change the time to prevent it from waking the computer again. You can also open Control Panel, "Hardware and Sound" and "Change When the Computer Sleeps." Select "Change Advanced Power Settings." Expand the "Sleep" entry, and disable the "Allow Wake Timers" option.
Mouse and Keyboard Issues
Wireless or optical mice and keyboards can be a bit quirky, and the flick of a light switch could make either device wake the computer. USB connected input devices can trigger wake up if they're bumped or pressed accidentally. Outdated drivers can also cause communication issues between the keyboard, mouse and computer, waking the computer as it tries to correct it. Update all drivers for your keyboard and mouse, and keep lights away from the sensor on optical mice.
The computer's power settings determine when it goes into sleep mode and what can wake it up. Open the Power Options dialog and click "Change Plan Settings," then "Change Advanced Power Settings." In the new window select "Change Settings That Are Currently Unavailable." This enables you to change the various settings that tell the computer what to do when it goes to sleep. Set the PCI Express to off, USB Settings to disabled and Multimedia Settings to "Allow the Computer to Sleep." This will prevent unwanted waking of your computer when it dozes off.
External devices can wake the computer during sleep mode, the most well-known being the keyboard and mouse. But other hardware can trigger the computer awake, including the router, networking card and printer. Check these devices under Device Manager by selecting the device and right-clicking and selecting "Properties." Deselect "Allow this Device to Wake the Computer." Check every device connected to the computer for this option, such as scanners, printers and routers.

Why Do My Computer Lights Turn on When It's in Sleep Mode?
Save Energy While Your Rest with the ITS Sleep Mode Program
International Thermal Systems is proud to introduce the NEW ITS Sleep Mode Program™. The NEW ITS Sleep Mode Program™ is a program within the PLC that is an optional feature on all ITS equipment and is available as a retrofit for ALL makes and models of Ovens and Washers. The premise behind the program is to save energy during line stoppages which saves you money. In order to achieve these savings the following will take place:
Upon activation, the ITS Sleep Mode Program™ will receive a signal from line control that there has been a line stoppage; once that signal is received a timer will start counting down to a pre-determined time. Once the time has elapsed, the program starts and three things will happen:
- Temperature Controller Set Point is lowered.
- Burner Output is Reduced.
- Recirculation & Exhaust Fan Speeds are lowered.
When engaged, the ITS Sleep Mode Program™ the following benefits will be possible:
- Oven Temperature is Reduced.
- Fuel Consumption is Reduced.
- Electrical Power Consumption is Reduced.
- Oxidizer Heat Load is Reduced.
Upon deactivation, the ITS Sleep Mode Program™ the Oven receives a signal from line control letting it know that the line is once again ready for production. Within minutes your oven will be back to normal operating conditions.
To give you a practical example of the potential savings that the ITS Sleep Mode Program™ could provide, we assumed total line stoppages of 2.4-hrs per day for 360-days per year, this allows for a 75% savings in fuel and electricity by using the ITS Sleep Mode Program™. Based on these assumptions the savings will be in the tens of thousands of dollars.
These savings were calculated for (1) Pin Oven……..Now imagine a line that contains (1) Dry-off Oven, (2) Pin Ovens and (1) IBO………..Now calculate when you have a plant with (2) lines, that is a total of (8) Ovens…..the savings are too significant to ignore, the savings are just waiting for you!
Remember that the energy savings doesn’t just stop with the ovens; if your oven is integrated with an Oxidizer you also be reduce the heat load requirements of the Oxidizer as well. The ROI on this feature is often well less than 1-year, this of course depends on your equipment’s current configuration.
Want to learn more about the impressive and innovative ITS Sleep Mode Program™? If you do please contact International Thermal Systems today, remember every day that goes by is another day of savings that are lost forever! We look forward to talking with you soon to discuss your specific application and helping you save precious dollars in operating costs.
