When I close the cover of my Dell Inspiron 4150, it does not always go to standy. Does anyone know where the switch is? Is it in the hinge? What do I need to do to fix it?

Thanks...........Ron

Could be related to what apps you have running, try some different combinations, but first check the event log.

It appears to be a hardware problem. Sometimes it goes into standby, then due to movement, turns back on and discharges my battery.
