Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
When not in use, aspire one goes to sleep mode...which is fine, but does not want to come out of sleep mode. I've tried left clicking, pressing any button, short press on power button...only way i've found is to hold power key...then it reboots!! Any suggestions??
I had the same problem when I first bought my Acer Aspire One a few weeks ago. I searched the web for answers, but it didn't really seem like anyone had a solution. However, one guy on a forum or website said something that gave me an idea - he said something like: What's the problem? Just open it up, hit the power button, type your password, and it wakes up.
Well, that didn't seem helpful to me at the time that I read it, but after thinking about it, I had a hunch. I had not set up my netbook to have a password (yet). So I did. And it's been waking up from sleep mode like it should ever since!!!
Hopefully, if you're reading this, setting a password will work for you, too. If you don't know how to set a password, here goes... Start...Control Panel...User Accounts...Change an Account...[Pick your name.account]...then the option to create a password should come up. Let us know if this works for you!

I figured out that in the Power Options, you could not have it set to "Never" go into standby. I switched both "System Stadby's", when plugged in and when running on batteries to "After 5 Hours". I was able to get it to power up out of Standby the way it should, by just pressing and releasing the power button.

Pressing the power button once (not holding) is the only way to resume from sleep mode.
You can choose how long it waits until Sleep, to Never, in the Power Options.
Hope this answers your question.
