Open Control Panel, Power Options, Advanced Power settings, Change Sleep to Never, Hibernate to Never. Adjust to your preference.OR right click on a open space on the desktop, depending on the OS you are using, select Properties or Personalize, Select ScreenSaver, set time. It's a good idea to shut down your machine when not in use, even if you have a UPS, Your computer will last longer and a reboot every day resets the computer.

SOURCE: My Dell Optiplex GX270 goes into power saver mode

this sounds like a bad power supply unit. First check that your Ram and graphics card a free from dust and dirt by removing them from their slots and cleaning them with a dry soft paintbrush then replacing them gently but firmly. Next check that all of the power cables going into the motherboard are pushed in gently but firmly. If this is done and you still get the same problem, then I suggest changing the power supply unit.

SOURCE: wont shutdown when shutdown butten is pressed shuts windows well i have to cut off power to shutdown.

A lot of IBM laptops do not have Nvidia graphics. Shutdown errors can be caused by many reasons including bad drivers and programs that do not shut down properly. It can be tough to isolate the specific problem. Here is what I did with my IBM laptop when it had this problem. I hope it works for you!

Windows XP Freeze at Shutdown with IBM Laptop: I had this problem while setting up an IBM T43p with XP Pro from the IBM Product Recovery disks. After much frustration I found the problem was a bad driver. In Device Manager>System Devices I uninstalled "Atmel TPM legacy device," a Trusted Platform Module driver. The T43p would then shutdown and restart without a hitch.

Computer keeps turning off


You didn't give much information. If the screen is just going dark be sure it is not just the screen saver. If the PC powers down, it could be over heating and shutting down the power supply. Usually if this is the case the fan runs at high speed just before the shutdown. If it is neither of those problems, it could be many things, such as a loose power cable, a defective power switch, of a defective power supply.

I'm using acer aspire 5920 ...it having problem once it is turn on it dont shutdown. i seen in some blog .there said update BIOS .i did it. it displays message automatically shutdown . But my friend...


If you show a Blue Screen, you have more problems then it not being able to turn off/shut down?? I would back out the battery so as to stop power from getting to it, AFTER you have it unplugged..then push battery back into to engage, plug the AC cord back into the PC. turn it back on and IF you still show a BLUE screen, you will need a tech to check it further...GOOD LUCK...

Hi my daughter used the mac last night same as usual. When i started it up this morning i only have screen saver plus mouse pointing device showing!!! Normal shutdown procedure was followed. thanks in...


I'd guess that it went into sleep mode rather than shutdown. Sometimes the screensaver can only be woken up by tapping the space bar..
If that doesn't do it, hold the power button down for 10 secs and this will force-shut the machine, then boot up as normal.

Automatic shut off?


Usually you set this by going into the power saving settings in the screen saver settings.

You can set the monitor to shut down pretty much when you want it to from this settings screen.

Good Luck,

Easily done! Right click your desktop and choose Properties. Select the Screen Saver tab and at the bottom choose Power. In the Power Schemes drop down box choose Always On and the PC will never turn off. You might also want to disable or set the time higher for your screen saver.

Mac Mini G4 turns itself ON


Have you looked into System Preferences>energy saver>schedule? Maybe it's set up to start itself. I have my mother's mac set to start up and shut down automatically. Just a thought.
