Was in sleep or hibernate mode overnight. Wife used computer in morning for a while. When she came back later, power switch light on steadily, but nothing comes on screen. Powered off, then on; even unplugged main power, but hard drive doesn't run. Tried my Acer default CDs for booting. No change.

Step 1: Sleep Mode b> Sleep mode is primarily used with home computers (desktop computers). Sleep mode is designed to save the current work, programs, and settings of your computer using your computers memory, while using very little power. b> Hibernate Mode b> Hibernate mode is primarily used with laptop's. Hibernate mode is designed to save your computers current state on to the hard disk, then turn off your computer to stop using power completely. This mode is usually used when you do not plan on using your laptop for an extended amount of time. Benefits b> Using Hibernate mode is more power-efficient, but files may become fragmented over time by using this mode frequently. Sleep mode does consume more power, but the advantage that Sleep mode has over Hibernate is that it does not take as long to resume your computers former state when you are ready to continue using it.
A laptop computer is typically set to conserve battery power. One of the common settings called standby, sleep mode or hibernation turns off power to the screen and the laptop itself after a preset time limit passes without any mouse or keyboard activity. It can be inconvenient for the computer to shut down while you're working on an open page or during a download. Change the setting if you don't want your laptop to going into automatic shutdowns
Turn the laptop computer on with the power button if it's not set to turn on upon opening. Allow the system to boot up. Open the panel for adjusting the sleep settings. This varies among the popular versions of Windows operating systems. To change the sleep mode setting on a laptop running Windows XP, click the "Start" button, and click the "Control Panel" selection. Choose the "Performance and Maintenance" selection, and click on "Power Options." Click the "Power Schemes" tab, and click the drop downs next to "Turn Off Monitor," "Turn Off Hard Disk," "System Standby" and "System Hibernates." Select "Never" for each drop down in both the "Plugged in" and "Running on Battery Power" columns. Click the "Hibernate" tab and click to remove the check mark in the box next to "Enable Hibernation." To change the sleep settings on a Windows Vista laptop, click "Start," "Control Panel," "Systems and Maintenance" and "Power Options." Then click "Change Plan Settings" under the currently established plan. Click on the "Advanced Settings" tab and select the "Never" option on the "Sleep," "Sleep After," "Hibernate After," "Display" and "Turn off Display After" drop downs. Click the "OK" and "Save Changes" buttons to confirm the settings. To change the sleep settings on a laptop running Windows 7, click the "Start" button, choose "All Control Panel Items," select "Power Options" and click "Edit Plan Settings." Click the drop downs for "Turn off the Display" and "Put the Computer to Sleep." Choose "Never" for both and click the "Save Changes" button.
You turned the laptop on and off and it still is asleep?
When you turned it off did the power go completely off? If not remove the power cord to make it go off.
Try booting up into safe mode and see if it goes to sleep.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you
MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you
internet connectivity so you can view the manual later) and let it boot
up. Safe Mode will look
different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this
normal. Check your Power Options in the Control Panel to set your Sleep
Mode and Hibernation up higher or set it to NEVER. Click Start/Control
Panel and look for Power Option (it might be under System and
is a link to your user manual. You want to go to Pages 77 and 78 where
it talks about changing the Power Plan. You want to select Change
Advanced Settings as it talks about on pages 78 and you will be allowed
to change the hibernate and sleep settings.
If it is in sleep pressing any key or moving the mouse will generally wake it up. If you left the computer unplugged in sleep mode then it most likely ran out of power. If your using hibernate I would recommend not using it as it has so many issues.... :) If you have to hit the power button to wake it up then it's either shutdown or in hibernate. FYI there will generally be an amber light on to indicate sleep mode. If no lights it's most likely not in sleep mode. Comment if you need additional assistance.
Definition: Hibernate is another option for powering down
your laptop. When you use Hibernate all data will be saved to the hard
drive in a compressed form. Once you start up from Hibernate mode you
will be able to work with the applications and documents you left open
before putting the laptop into Hibernate.
Hibernate is best used to conserve laptop battery power when you will be
away from the laptop for more than a few minutes. You can put your
laptop into Hibernate overnight or when you will be away from it for a
Examples: Rather than shutting down my
laptop each night, I use Hibernate to help conserve battery power and
enable me to access my open files quicker in the morning.
If you are not going to use your computer for a few hours, it is a good idea to put it to sleep (also known as
mode) to save power. If you are not going to use the computer for more
than a day, it is usually best to turn it off.
hope it helps.... please rate if you like my post...thanks
Hibernation is the biggest creator of software nightmares...it has killed more computer systems and corrupted more systems than I can count. Go to control panel > power options and change your power settings in there. Turn hibernation off and just have the computer go to sleep after a certain time. You will find that the computer will come right back in sleep mode and will be ready for action. Don't worry about the system running until sleeping and then waking up, it's a lot better than finding your entire operating system is now corrupt and has to be re-installed.
Dear! take display properties use tab ans select screen saver then click on power and use tab again select hibernate if it is enable check again it and disable now. After that your computer will not go in sleep or hibernate mode.
I've had spotty luck with Windows and sleep or hibernate modes. I would suggest just disabling sleep/hibernate mode. The options can be found under the control panel under power options. While turning off the sleep mode won't help your battery life, if you ask me, it beats having to power off the laptop by pulling the battery out. If you don't want to turn it off, you can try adjusting the amount of time it lets pass before it goes to slee.
