I bet it is your power settings, I am guessing that you have a Windows 7 Laptop. If it is a different Windows flavor (XP) these instructions will work too just a couple of differences, not sure on Win 8 though. If it is on a Mac Book I am not sure where to go for these settings. Sorry I am a Windows guy.

  1. click on Start Button (bottom left, the Windows symbol)
  2. click on Control Panel
  3. This is where it gets fun, If your view in the top right is set to "Category" then click on "System and Security" then click on "Power Options". If your view in the top right is set to either "Small" or "Large" Icons then just click on the "Power Options"
  4. In Power Options you will see the Plan that your Laptop is set to (the one with the circle filled in). Once located click on Change Plan Settings.
  5. Another Screen will pop up with Options. The first set of options are for Battery, or when no power supply is plugged in, and the other is while plugged in. You can change how long the system will wait to Dim, Turn off Display, and put the computer to Sleep. I bet that your settings for putting the computer to sleep is set to 30 minutes. You make it longer by clicking on the drop down box and choosing a different time.
The reason for these settings are to turn off the device when you are not using it. This conserves energy and also helps take stress of the Hard Drive. I personally have my laptop set to go to sleep after 45 minutes if on battery and 4 hours if plugged in. This is because I use my laptop all day for work and I am never off of it. You may want to extend the sleep while plugged in to 3-4 hours that way you can give your PC plenty of time to burn your DVD's.

If this did not help please respond back, could be something else.

Check your temperature, typically handling DVD conversion will cause your laptop to use a higher amount of energy thus getting hotter, consider getting compressed air and giving the laptop a go, or if you wouldn't mind spending 10$ you can pick up an external fan. That should solve the issue.

Azer aspire 5472z keeps shuttin down when running my online mmorpg

There is an issue of trojen or virus so you should clean it up. Secondly, if it take a few minutes and then repeated the same condition, absolutely you need to clean your fan which is not cooling at all. Contact me further more issue or this problem persist.

Good Luck

Charging indicator starts blinking when i watch movie for more than one hour on battery

A laptop won't last long without being charge, a fully charge battery should last about 1hr 30mins so charge the battery while your watching a movie next time.

I have an aspire 6920 which is only just over a month old- every now and again when shutting down it takes about 20-30mins to shut down- then says that there has been a system driver power failure- reboots...

Have you been installing and uninstalling programs? if yes then you need to clean your Windows Registry. If not doing so then some of your drivers have got corrupted and need re installing. it is basically a SW prob. Go to
and download the drivers and reinstall them.

I can not get my videos to download in the video file they go to my music file I have tried a number of converters.Can u help?

Check your conveter's output file extension. My movie files show up as a .mp4 and my music show up as .m4a files. I have tried a good video converter for copying DVDs to ipod. It is made by Cucusoft. They have trial versions you can try out for free. They also have one for converting other types of video files also.
