Specs: Windows 8
when my Compaq cq58 has been asleep for some time (lid closed), it will not wake up. I have touched the mouse pad (don't have an external mouse fitted), pressed buttons on the keyboard, pressed the power key and all these do nothing and I am left with the only option of turning it off to turn it back on.

✔ Best Answer
looking around the forums I see that the usual (and generally successful) fix for that is to update the BIOS if such an update is available from your laptop manufacturer's website (HP). Choose your country here for the appropriate HP support website:

Be sure to read carefully any instructions regarding BIOS updates on the HP website, and the download may also include an instructions document on how to perform the update.
