Go to "Control Panel > Power Options" then change plan settings so that the drop-downs are set to "Never".

If you are still stuck, hold down the power button for about 6 seconds for a complete shut down first.
The problem you are describing is when the hard drive has gone into power saving mode before the computer has gone into sleep, hybrid sleep, or hibernate. You just need to set the hard drive power option to 'Never' and leave the other options alone. This will prevent your issue and still let the system go into any of the sleep modes (this is especially important if this is a laptop). During sleep and hibernate, the hard drive powers down anyway so there is no need for this option and it causes this issue fairly often.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Adding to what Fingers said.

To reach the HD setting go to:
"Control Panel > Power Options > Change plan settings > Change advanced power settings > Expand Hard disk entry".

I don't understand why you say it has anything to do with the HD.
My hard drives are set to stop spinning after 20 minutes of inactivity,
the monitor shuts off after 45 minutes, and the computer goes to
sleep after one hour. Is that the sort of thing you mean, or are you
referring to something else? This arrangement does not and could
not interfere with boot in any way, so I'm confused.

The original post is a little tricky to understand so we are interpreting it, ie that the it really means "wake" rather than "boot". If that is not the case hopefully the poster will put us right.

The symptom that some folk have had is that you "sometimes" cannot wake the computer when in power saving mode and have to resort to powering it up again. I've no idea why this is intermittent and only affects some computers but I have run into it. The fix is either to set the HD to "Never" or "longer than the sleep settings".

Sorry Jeff but I have had machines of my own family plus others that I have recommended this and it works. The problem is not on all machines (Motherboards? BIOS'? Version Windows install? Hard drive brand? Some unknown combination?) and it does not always happen right away, but it has always helped with this problem. My theory has been that the hard drive powers down and does not briefly power up (or not fast enough) for a hibernate or hybrid sleep save to the hard drive and things hang there. I have known many machines without the problem but I have known quite a few with it starting with XP through Windows 7 and I suspected one Windows 8 machine as well of this, both desktops and laptops.

I have a different take - I think what he's seeing is "power saving mode" on the monitor screen because there's a problem with the tower (a different brand of monitor would display "no signal"). Other than that, we haven't been provided enough info.

What riider just said was my first impression when I read
the original post, but that was influenced by the fact that I see the
monitor's "Entering power save" message frequently. I've never
used the hibernate or hybrid sleep modes.

It's all getting a tad confusing. I assume that your PC model number is LENOVO IH 61M N1996, and the motherboard number is LENOVO IH 61M N1996. I couldn't find LENOVO IH 61M N1996 but I found just LENOVO IH 61M which is probably near enough.

It's strange how the symptoms have changed. If I'm understanding you correctly the monitor was displaying "power saving mode" earlier but now it displays nothing at all.

If you never see anything at all on the screen then you have a hardware fault which could be a number of things. Hard to say which I would put on the top of the list but if you believe everything is working then the display card is a good possibility. You also ought to try another monitor if possible (or try yours on another computer). That way we can eliminate the monitor itself from the equation.

What is difficult to fit in with the above is that the monitor was previously displaying "power saving mode". I suppose you it is possible that might now have an additional hardware fault.

Better make absolutely sure I have properly understood the situation. Spell out exactly what the problem was originally (when you first posted) and what is happening now. Take your time and put it in a list so that it is quite clear what happened when.

Derek,

It looks to me like he's saying that the monitor is not getting a signal
from the computer, so the monitor shows the "Power saving mode"
message and goes to sleep.

If that is correct, the question becomes, "Why is no video signal
reaching the monitor?" Which is something that happens to my
computer half the times I boot or resume from sleep. No video for
a few seconds to a few minutes. More often when the room is cold.
The problem is either in the motherboard, video board, or power
supply. Since everything else works fine, I doubt it's the power supply,
but I can't rule it out. Resetting the video by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del once
Windows has booted often fixes it if it lasts that long.

"It looks to me like he's saying"
That is the problem - things are not clear enough.

Sure, I agree with your possible interpretation of the original post but at #10 the poster now seems to be saying that there "nothing at all" on the screen.

This is why I think a proper analysis requires a listed explanation from start to finish, carefully set out so that no interpretation is necessary and that it is clear whether the situation has now changed or not.

That will allow us to focus in on the best remedial action. I am happy to accept that a second fault could have now come along but only if it seems fairly clear that this is the case.

That's exactly what I was getting at: He doesn't say there is nothing
at all on the screen, he says that "the screen is not coming". Since
he also says there is no problem with the monitor or cables, I take
it that he is describing the same situation as in the original post,
but now thinks that "power-saving mode" is not the problem.

If he confirms that description, the next step would be to determine

Aha. There are "two" computers and I'm not sure that anyone responding realised that - I certainly didn't..

You have given this information:
Original post.
any help please on lenovo pc?

Response #12.
PC is ThinkCentre but the motherboard is lenovo model is lenovo enhanced experience 3
[Unclear but I "now" believe that sentence was about two computers. The "enhanced experience" bit is unimportant]

Response #14.
original on the number is (LENOVO IH 61M N1996) SAME PROBLEM, ANOTHER ONE IS AS ROCK H6IM- VS3
[We probably missed this hint that there are two computers]

Response #22.
...they are two machine with the same problem, one is not showing any signal the other one display power saving mode on the screen) LENOVO IH 61M
[Definitely two computers then]

This lot needs clearing up. Just create two paragraphs, one for the PC. with all the numbers and then another separate one for the laptop, again with all the numbers. I trust that you appreciate that the motherboard is the large circuit board inside with all the components on it. That is less important, just giving us the make and model number of each computer is the main thing.

To keep this response down to size I'll produce another which hopefully will move us forward with your problems.

Let's first look at the computer that never displays anything at all on the screen. That indicates a hardware fault either with the computer or its screen. Trying another monitor on it will prove whether it is the screen or something inside the computer.

Your other one displays "power saving mode" on the screen. This is the one where folk have responded about Power Settings including the HD setting. Have you tried any of these suggestions?

You are going to have to be crystal clear which computer you are responding about from now on because although both have "somewhat" similar symptoms the subtle difference makes me believe that the causes are entirely different.

We definitely need those two paragraphs as per my #23. Unfortunately it is only now that we are beginning to understand the questions. Remember we cannot see or know what you know about these computers and have to rely entirely on the clarity ofwhat you tell us

On the Lenovo, it all rests with how comfortable you are about delving inside it. It might take a bit of fathoming to deduce what component is giving the trouble but we can try if you wish. This I believe is the PC and that your screen or monitor never ever shows anything at all.

There are a multitude of model numbers for Thinkcentre, all different. I can only do a UK search from here but I think you will still see from just this first Google page that quite a few are showing up. The model number is usually somewhere on the outside of the tower, if not it might be on the papers you were given at purchase. This number is the one we need most.

Assuming it has a graphics card (not an inbuilt chip/module) then you could take it out, clean its edge connectors with a soft pencil eraser then pop it in and out a few times to clear any oxide off the socket before pressing it firmly home. Probably too hopeful but easy to try and edge connectors have been known give issues.

Derek,

When he says,

> when connecting to the monitor the screen is not displaying, they
> are two machine with the same problem , one is not showing any
> signal the other one display power saving mode on the screen )
> LENOVO IH 61M

I don't trust that by "two machine" he means "two computers".
He could be referring again to the two monitors. One monitor
displays a message when it gets no signal, the other monitor
does not display a message.

In reply #14 he may be saying that his Lenovo IH61M N1996 has
an ASRock H6IM-VS3 motherboard. Both of those designations
appear to be on the same board. It is a small form-factor board
with very limited data ports. Note this brief thread asking about
a board with the exact same Lenovo designation on it:

And this thread with 11 posts, asking the same question:
