Windows 7: Computer powers back on from sleep mode when low battery

Computer powers back on from sleep mode when low battery

Didn't know where to put this, if it's in the wrong place (Which it undoubtedly is) I encourage you to move it or ask me to move it and it will be done.

Long story short, when my laptop has low battery and I'd like to put it into sleep mode rather than completely shutting it down, it will turn back on a few seconds after it goes to sleep.

Thanks in advance my beautiful windows warriors.

Small edit: It might have something to do with the message you get upon a low battery, and it only started happening after my new hard drive a year ago, so I might need to change a setting or download a driver.

In sleep mode the computer uses some power, but when it is woken from sleep mode it requires a burst of power to get started again & as the battery is already low & has been further drained while in sleep mode, this waking power requirement immediately returns it to sleep.

If you receive a low battery notice you should shut the computer down immediately or connect the battery charger & commence charging. Failing to do so could result in data loss or corruption.

So there's no way to keep my PC in sleep mode on low battery? It turns back on when I put it in sleep mode with low battery.

It seems like I might have misread your original Post as I thought it was to do with you wanting to wake the computer from sleep mode. My apologies.
