MS KB 917332 - XPSP2 Update for Laptops


®®®

Recommended Posts

SYMPTOMS

The monitor does not turn on when you move the mouse or press any key after you configure the "Power Options" settings on a Windows XP SP2-based portable computer.

Consider the following scenario. You have a Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)-based portable computer that uses a dual-core processor or that uses an Intel Pentium 4 Processor that supports hyper-threading technology (HT Technology). You use Power Options in Control Panel to configure the computer to enter a standby or a hibernation state when you close the lid. You also configure the computer to turn off the monitor after a period of inactivity.

In this scenario, the computer correctly enters a standby or a hibernation state after you close the lid, and then the computer correctly resumes activity when you reopen the lid. Also, the monitor turns off correctly after the period of inactivity that you specify. However, the monitor does not turn on again when you move the mouse or press any key.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, close the lid, wait for several moments, and then reopen the lid.
