Acer 5101 sleep mode

How can I alter sleep mode? When trying to watch iplayer or other live online things I have to remember to keep moving the mouse or the machine goes to sleep. Similarly if I leave the machine unattended I get the same problem. The longest continous span of time on the computer will be about 4 hours and it is always switched off after use.

Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop fan motor keeps running


It\'s NOT the fan. Check the power save settings on the computer ITSELF. Check your BIOS settings as well. Inspirons ALL do the same thing with waking up.

How to open hp laptop in sleep mode


This is a common problem on HP computers but also has many causes. If your laptop is not coming back on after being put into sleep mode, it could be a software issue among a few other things. If your computer has a hibernation mode I would suggest using it to get around the sleep mode issue. This mode will save everything the way it is and shut down completely. When you restart the computer it will open up just as you left it. Just like sleep mode except with a restart. This does not solve the sleep mode problem but easily provides a power saving alternative to it.

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.

User guide for Acer laptop model 5535


Hi, I may have a possible fix for this....
I got an Acer Aspire 5535 for christmas off my parents and on christmas day had a problem where the screen randomly goes off into sleep and cannot wake up unless restarting. This is very annoying!!!

After narrowing the odds down, i found that after watching vidoes on websites such as Youtube or BBC iPlayer or even iTunes videos my computer went into sleep.

The only way to solve this... according to Acer - a new video chip needs to be installed so send it off to Acer.
After this it works fine as i found out after watching Top Gear and the new series of Reggie Perrin on the BBC iPlayer.

I hope this helps you - i know how annoying this can be.
Thanks =]
