Question about Acer Aspire 5100-3357 Notebook
Just bought a Acer Aspire, my old computer and I mean old, I just shut it down, but I know this is not good for the machines, when I log off on this new one, the blue light stays on the keyboard and the mouse laser light stays on, is this normal, could you tell step by step how to log off and what stays on. Thank you
Logging off does not shut down the pc, you want to eaither standby (sleep mode) or shut down.
If you running windows vista you would press the start button on the bottom left corner, select the little arror next to the lock and power icons and then select eaither shut down or sleep (sleep mode will still use some power and drain your batter but will turn on mutch faster when you need to use the laptop again)
If you are going to have the laptop off for more then a few hours you should just shut down unless you are leaving it plugged in to the ac adapter.

If you log off you only close your user session under windows, not turn off the computer.
If you suspend you turn off almost everything in the laptop like hardwire, cd or dvdrom and most peripherals but the computer stays on the consuming power.
If you hibernate what windows does is to store all in memory in a temporary file in the hard drive and turn off all the computer so when you turn it on again it will be as you last session with all your programs and documents you left open.
And if you turn off the computer it will close all your programs, close windows and turn off all the hardware.
