    I rarely unplug the laptop from the ac adapter. And it is fully charged. The last two times this happened I was first watching a video and the second time I was playing the Sims2.

    Problem solved..it was cat fur. Yes, a huge LUMP of cat fur lodged in the fan housing, which caused it to jam up and stop. I blame my 20 lbs cat for this. He tends to rub up against the laptop and sleep on it.

Is the ac adapter plug into the power outlet with the battery in or are you just using your battery to boot up ? Try to just use the ac adapter without the battery to see if it still shuts down.

Your battery may not be charging enough but to be sure charge it fully by making sure the AC Adapter are securely snug to the power jack of the laptop and to the power outlet and not turning your computer for at least half a day. Check to see battery contacts are clean. Check to see if charging led blinks. Also make sure battery latch locks tight when putting it in.

Hi pamelaotis...
Try shutting down using the shut off button or you also can remove your battery.
When you restart you should be out of the safe mode.

what is happening is it is hibernating not shutting down, open up acer empowering technology and go to the power settings or click on the battery icon in taskbar and click power options, then there will be instructions that say when i turn off; power off and not hibernate as probably selected.
