Closing the lid does not enter hibernate or sleep mode

    I've bought Dell XPS M 1530 recently. Earlier with bios version A_05 my
    notebook didnot detect wireless network if it became available while the
    computer was already On. The computer had to be waking up or restarting in
    the presence of network and then only it registered it.
    The Dell technician downloaded the latest bios (version A_07) and the
    wireless network problem got corrected.
    But the new problem thats comeup now is that closing the lid doesnt put the
    computer to sleep. I checked in the power options, thats correctly
    configured. Even changed it to hibernate when i close lid. That doesnt work

    One more thing i must add - that it's not like my computer doesnt get to
    know at all that the lid is closed. When i open the lid, everything is ON but
    the mouse arrow behaves 'drunk' for a while before becoming normal. Can
    someone help.

  3. I'd check the Dell forums to see if this new BIOS has this issue. There
    will be a Dell driver that tells the OS when the lid has been closed, so
    it's possible that an update for the driver is necessary for it to work with
    the new BIOS. As the BIOS is the interface between the hardware and the OS,
    this is a possible explanation.

    AK, I'm having the exact same problem as you with my M1530 that I
    purchased in January.

    Were you able to find a fix? I'm not a techie so any simple help will
    be greatly appreciated.

    Darn! I really appreciate you getting back to me though AK. I am
    anxiously awaiting a solution to this as Dell Tech Support have been
    completely useless in resolving this.

    Some claim it's a Vista problem while others think it's a Trend Micro
    PC-Cillin 14 problem. I've downloaded SP1 for Vista in hopes that this
    would repair the problem but it has not.

    Any suggestions? Anyone???

    Hello AK and Tony
    Assuming you already knew that if you do have wireless mice/keyboards
    you'll need an optional Hid update
    That aside, please try this :
    Control Panel > System/maintenance > Power Options > Change Pla
    settings > Change advanced settings > click the (+) sign in front o
    Multi media settings > click the (+) sign in front of When sharing medi
    Let me know if it's ok now

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've made the changes you recommended but
    the computer still does not sleep when the lid is closed, and if I
    press Function+F1 (sleep mode) the computer shuts down.

    I am using a wireless Logitech mouse. Could you explain how I get the
    optional Hid update, or what it is for that matter? Again, I'm a bit
    technical but not when it comes to Laptops.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hello Tony
    The optional update is called " Hid Non-user Input Data Filter". It i
    designed for wireless applications, particularly useful for machines No
    going to sleep mode
    It is/was initially available through Windows update, optional. If yo
    cannot find it there anymore, then you'll need to install Intellipoin
    software first, then search for the optiona
    google Intellipoint in the search box. It's easy

    I found the optional update but it says it's for Microsoft wireless mice
    or keyboards.

    I'm using a Logitech wireless mouse. I did download the Setpoint
    software for the Logitech mouse but what should I do next? Should I
    still download the Hid update even though my device is not made by

    Hi there, it's been some time and I'm still having the same problem
    listed above. I'm running the latest A09 BIOS and have tried all of the
    sleep/hibernate settings in Vista.

    I would really like to get this problem resolved if any one has some

    Could it be an issue with Trend Micro PC Cillin Internet Security 14?
    I recall something about a year ago regarding this but can't find
