Can I make Win7 require a password after hibernation, but not from sleep?

I'd like to make my netbook present the login screen on wakeup from hibernation, but not from sleep. All I can find is how to have both or none. Is this possible with Win7 or do I need some extra software?

Running a computer 24/7? Answered

Hi. I'm trying to set up a server for a game me and my friends like to play on. Oddly enough, getting the server to work isn't the problem. The server works great. However, I'd like the computer to run the server 24/7 (or until I tell it to stop) I've gone into the power saving properties and changed it so the computer never hibernates/goes on standby/shuts down. I've also made it so that the computer never shuts down the display, or the hard disks. However, when I leave it overnight, I wake up to find that it has gone to it's screensaver, and when I wake it up, I find myself back at the login screen. (Despite checking a box telling it NOT to do that.) Also, when I do log in again, the program running the server has been shut down.  Is there something I'm missing here? How can you make a computer stay wide awake 24/7? I'm running windows XP by the way.

"Please excuse me, that was very impolite!"

Found this site last night in the wee hours of the morning. I was sleepy and decided I was too lazy to sign up, so I clicked the Facebook login button. That's where the trouble started. Until that point, I could view any page just fine. After I attempted to sign up through Facebook, the entire site hated me. Every page I attempted to open told me "Please excuse me, that was very impolite!" and a bunch of update information that didn't go through. I thought that my cookies were corrupted due to the attempted Facebook sign up (it didn't work, btw), so I cleared my cookies from this site and all temporary internet files. It worked! At least, I thought it did... After a page, it started happening again. Same thing every time. The only way I've found to make it stop is to A) clear my cache every time I go to a new page or B) disable cookies for this site. Disabling cookies works, unless I want to log in and post, at which time I have to enable them again to stay logged in past the login screen. Strange thing is, the Facebook cookie for this site keeps installing itself every time I visit the site--whether I log in or not. It seems to be the problem, because none of the other cookies seem to be causing this issue. I have Firefox 3.6.13 and Windows 7. Please let me know if there is anymore system information that I need to give. Thank you. The following is what pops up on every page: Please excuse me, that was very impolite! - org.hibernate.exception.GenericJDBCException: Could not execute JDBC batch update Exception org.hibernate.exception.GenericJDBCException: Could not execute JDBC batch update at org.hibernate.exception.SQLStateConverter.handledNonSpecificException( at org.hibernate.exception.SQLStateConverter.convert( at org.hibernate.exception.JDBCExceptionHelper.convert( at org.hibernate.jdbc.AbstractBatcher.executeBatch( at org.hibernate.engine.ActionQueue.executeActions( at org.hibernate.engine.ActionQueue.executeActions( at org.hibernate.event.def.AbstractFlushingEventListener.performExecutions( at org.hibernate.event.def.DefaultFlushEventListener.onFlush( at org.hibernate.impl.SessionImpl.flush( at org.hibernate.impl.SessionImpl.managedFlush( at org.hibernate.transaction.JDBCTransaction.commit( at com.instructables.transaction.TransactionHandler.invoke( at $ Source) at com.instructables.filter.SecurityFilter.createUserFromFacebookDetails( at com.instructables.filter.SecurityFilter.doFilter( at com.caucho.server.dispatch.FilterFilterChain.doFilter( at com.instructables.filter.SetupFilter.doFilter( at com.caucho.server.dispatch.FilterFilterChain.doFilter( at com.caucho.server.webapp.WebAppFilterChain.doFilter( at com.caucho.server.dispatch.ServletInvocation.service( at com.caucho.server.http.HttpRequest.handleRequest( at at com.caucho.util.ThreadPool.runTasks( at at Caused by: java.sql.BatchUpdateException: Data truncation: Out of range value adjusted for column 'facebookUid' at row 1 at com.mysql.jdbc.ServerPreparedStatement.executeBatch( at com.mchange.v2.c3p0.impl.NewProxyPreparedStatement.executeBatch( at org.hibernate.jdbc.BatchingBatcher.doExecuteBatch( at org.hibernate.jdbc.AbstractBatcher.executeBatch( ... 21 more

turning a pc on via mobile phone

Would it possible to wire the speaker of a mobile phone to the on/off of a standard pc so you could turn it on with a simple phone call? Not exactly a burning question but the idea has been floating around in my head for a while now, but i'm no closer to investigating.. Being completely devoid of network attached storage, that would be the next best way to access my files or store stuff when not at home without leaving the pc on all the time.. when finished it can be turned off via VNC or logmein. I've tried all ways to get wake on lan working of course, but can't stop the fans from running even when in standby/hibernation, and lately i can't even get it to stay in that mode without booting straight back into xp.. cheers in advance! ade

Automatically shutting down a Windows XP PC when not being used. Answered

Hi Folks. I'm looking for a simple & preferably free program that will turn off a Windows XP computer when is has been idle for a set period. Our twenty something kids cannot get it into their heads that they need to turn off their machines when they go out so I want to install a program that I can configure to shut down the machine after about an hour of inactivity. I know I can set it to hibernate or go into standby but I don't want to do that I want to turn it off altogether. Any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance. NG. Update. Thanks for all the suggestions folks, I have decided to go for the solution of installing PC Anywhere on all the machines in the house. Not only will this enable me to shut them down if I need to without having to keep going into the kids rooms but it also means I can ensure things like virus/malware scans are run regularly. Thanks again for all your help. NG.

Giant Spider WALKS in Liverpool - update

In May 2006 something incredible happened in London. For four days the city stopped in its tracks and marvelled at the sight of a gigantic wooden elephant, and a little-girl giant in a green dress. Hundreds of thousands of people jammed the streets, astonished at the scale and beauty of the spectacular Sultan's Elephant.Now Artichoke, the company that brought that event to London, is working with the engineering genius behind Royal de Luxe's giants, François Delarozière, and his company La Machine, to create a magical and astonishing new show especially for Liverpool, European Capital of Culture 2008. Liverpool08Something unforgettable is happening in Liverpool as a highlight of the city’s European Capital of Culture celebrations. Vast in scale and spectacular in execution, this breathtaking new commission from La Machine will spin a tale so magical that an entire city will fall under its spell. Just as The Sultan’s Elephant stopped London in its tracks in 2006, so this three-day adventure will unfold against the landmarks of a great city, stopping the traffic and captivating everyone who sees it. Prepare to be amazed by a show that will make you believe in the impossible.A gigantic mechanical spider has appeared in Liverpool, clinging to the side of a derelict building next to Lime Street station. A group of scientific researchers have arrived and are investigating… What will the next chapter of the story bring?La MachineUPDATEThousands of people braved the rain to watch a 50ft (15m) high mechanical spider come to life in Liverpool.About 5,000 people watched La Princesse come out of "hibernation" outside the city's arena at King's Dock on Friday.An estimated 20,000 more were in the city on Friday evening to see her crawl down The Strand before heading for a resting place at the Cunard building.The £1.5m street theatre production, operated by French company La Machine, is a Capital of Culture event.La Princesse was unveiled to the public on Wednesday morning, hanging from a redundant office block next to Lime Street railway station.She was woken in a hail of fireworks and smoke at 1130 BST on Friday, before striding up and down in front of the arena in front of the cheering crowd.

As the tests did not fix the problem I was encountering, where do I go from here?

Any help is appreciated, thanks. Here are some of the finer details regarding the problem: {pasted from an email I sent to customer relations} "From what I can tell, the AC adaptor (charger) works fine since it is able to charge the lithium-ion battery that the laptop came with and the orange light at the front of the laptop indicates that the adaptor is plugged in and is charging). However, recently whenever I unplugged the AC adaptor, I received a notice when I clicked on the battery meter icon on the desktop. It says: "Consider replacing your battery. There is a problem with your battery, so your computer might shut down suddenly." There is also a red cross that appears over the battery icon. Despite what the notification says, it appears that the problem may be more complex than that. Today, I noticed that despite the AC adaptor not being plugged in and the battery meter reading "0%", the laptop did not shut down or hibernate - it remained working. Other times, the battery meter will warn me that there is little charge left and shuts down (sometimes only after 15 minutes). Before I received the notification of "Consider replacing your battery", the laptop battery would last at least 1½ hours without having the AC plugged in. I have also had this laptop less than a year and taken good care of the battery, allowing it to discharge every so often then recharging it after. It makes little sense that the battery now lasts 15 minutes or less. Since the battery meter was apparently at 0% and did not shut down this evening, I suspect that the problem may have something to do with the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery or at least the device that reads the battery charge. From my observations, it seems to be misjudging the % of charge and therefore sometimes shuts down prematurely, even though there is more charge remaining than estimated. I have been following some of the Dell support forums (online) and other computer help forums and this ‘battery/battery reading' issue seems to be something a number of other laptop users have/are experiencing, especially when a user installs a Windows 7 operating system on a laptop that was bought with a preinstalled Windows XP operating system. I would like to emphasise that this laptop came with a preinstalled Windows 7 operating system and I have not changed operating systems at any time. I have also read that users with this problem, in some cases attempted to fix the notification of "Consider replacing your battery" by following the notifications advice and buying a new battery fitted to their exact laptop model but I will not be happy if it fails in such a short period of time.Although I found a very cheap price website Price just need:49.46€

Samsung monitor strange behavior?

I have a samsung S27A350H 27" 1080p TN Monitor which for a long time has worked just fine, permanently plugged into the HDMI of my old desktop. However I now have a better laptop which replaced the desktop, but I find that the monitor occasionally will not display a picture when plugged into my computer. I have nvidia display output settings set to output 1920*1080, 60p, with full (not limited) 8 bit colorspace. I do not know the settings of the HDMI output. I find that if I close my laptop lid, W10 goes into either a sleep or hibernate mode, and stops providing a signal to the monitor. If I wake windows again, the monitor will not display anything. Windows appears to detect the monitor fine and extend my desktop as it should when this monitor is detected. However the monitor appears to bounce between looking for a "digital" and "analog" source (HDMI and VGA respectively) Unplugging and replugging the HDMI connector has no effect. Windows detects the monitor fine, monitor does not. Changing the output resolution, frame rate, and colorspace does not appear to change this behavior. The monitor requires a deep power-cycle. Powering it off for several minutes (supposedly to allow charge to bleed away from internal capacitors.) usually (but not always) temporarily fixes the issue. The length of time needing to be unplugged seems to vary between seconds and days. When the monitor enters this nonfunctional state, no HDMI signal is detected. (tested by replacing my computer HDMI source with a raspberry pi. I did not go so far as to adjust the HDMI output settings of the Pi by editing the config file, but the settings were previously changed to optimize the picture quality with this particular monitor in the past anyway. This monitor appears to have a simalar issue with the VGA adaptor. However fixing it is generally a matter of unplugging the VGA and plugging it back in again, or opening up the display settings on W10. Online sources appear to suggest that a firmware bug in the monitor is the culprit, and the only way to fix the monitor is to connect the monitor via VGA and use the samsung firmware tool for this monitor to update / reflash the firmware,the explanation being that a bug in the firmware causes it to overwrite parts of itself, corrupting itself as a result. However the executable provided by Samsung immediately crashes after a successful installation of it and the driver when clicking to reflash the firmware in the software. I found no information regarding the error message that appears. (note my current and only laptop does not have a VGA output. Not sure if this is the reason it crashes, the error message does not give much detail. ---- When I first received this (supposedly broken) monitor from my uncle for free, I found that it was under the warranty period and the problem at the time was that it would not display VGA or HDMI signals. Samsung offered to repair the monitor under it's warranty, and since, it has worked fine, being connected to my main computer permanently.  I suspect the problem then is the same one manifesting now.

Cultivating blackberries - works for roses too!

Although in many regions (wild) blackberries are considered to be a pest, in our gardens they can be delicious.I don't mean the wild variety here but the cultivated ones with big fruits and no thorns on them.And if you ever tried to successfully save money by just buying one and using cuttings from it for the new season you know the troubles....Creating cuttings from blackberries is quite easy if done the right way.But there is an ever easier and simpler way if you don't mind doing your pruning a bit later than usual.Once the harvest season is over and all berries are gone you see that the blackberries still keep growing before they finally start dropping their leaves.And if all went well then your blackberries have grown in long "snakes" supported on a vertical structure - like long bows.During a good season this bows get so long that they almost reach the ground at the end of the season.All you have to do it to free your snkes so you can places their ends into the ground, preferably out to the side so you can start a new row of blackberries with enough space between them.Use some soft cord and weights to keep the ends in the ground and fill the hole.Only water once when done otherwise let nature take care of things.In a very dry climate or season you might want to water a bit once a week though.When leaves start to drop in big numbers cut the above ground bits off with about 10 to 15cm left standing.Prune the big ones as you always do to get them ready for the next season.And when the next season starts you will see that most of your little "cuttings" take off like mad.They had the mother plant until it was time to go dormant, so no extra energy was required to stop a dying cutting from going dry.The end of the plant realised it is under ground and for that reason it is time to grow roots.Then suddenly it is time to hibernate and all energy is left in the remains, ready for use in the next spring.It is no problem to get over 15 new plants from a single one this way for the next season.It also works quite well fo roses.Although here you might need to create a podest or similar to place pot on.And the season for it is different too ;)It all starts with your pruning at thend of the season.All parts that did not produce flowers, those "wild" stems need to be fully removed.Those who produced good are cut back so you are left with 3 to 5 "eyes" - these tiny pimple where the new shoots come out.Pay attention to their location as it determines the direction of the new shoots ;)Don't have too many facing inwards.When the rose starts growing again in spring you should prepare your stand for the pot.The new shoots are quite flexible and can be directed to grow where you need them for the pot by using bonsai tape or wire - just be gently with them!Once long enough that the end can be placed about 5cm deep into your pot with good potting mix or the good soil from your garden:Place the pot so that the end shoot is held in the soilwithout force - if in doubt let the shoot grow a bit longer and form it donwards with wire.You want to bury it only when there is new growth going out if it but not of the end currently only has the leaf(s) showing.These fresh end shoots should point downwards into the soil.Cover it all and keep the soild moist at all times but not soaking wet.It really helps to have the pot shaded.You can use small seedling pots and check for roots a few weeks later or just wait till the end of the season.Either way a root should form in the pot and once strong enough you only have to wait and look out for eyes forming on the stem.If the do you can cut the stem so you have enough eyes on the potted stem.Be aware though that this will only result in a strong and healthy rose if the mother plant is not a hybridised clone.For the later it is best to transplant and eye onto a donor bush or wild rose.
