Re: does not shut off

Download the 'Windows 98 Shutdown Patch' and run it. That should fix things.

When I open the notebook the power comes on then shuts off. when I open the note book all the way up it stays on

Click "Start."
Click "Control Panel."
Click "Power Options."
Click the "Change What Closing the Lid Does" hyperlink on the left side of the screen.
Click the "Closing the Lid" drop-down menu. Select either "Sleep," "Hibernate" or "Do Nothing." All three of these options will stop your Acer laptop from shutting down completely when you close the lid. Click "OK" to save changes.

If I leave my samsung q210 idle, the screen goes blank after a while. You can still see (and move) the mouse cursor, but the computer does not respond and you have to restart the computer to be able to...

Sounds like ou might have the Computer set to either Hib ernate or Standby.

Go into the settings and disable them so as to NOT have Hibernate or Standby.

My wife's Laptop has this problem, and we found that just shutting it down when you don't need it, when on battery this is, is the simplest and easiest way.
On power it doesn't matter, just close the lid is all that is needed.

Computer Shut Down Problem

Is the computer taking forever to shutdown in the blue screen or is it something else. Perhaps try closing the applications running with the system to help the process speed up and actually work without the usage of the power button.

How to log off

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.

Blank screen

the power is supposed to stay on when that little plastic button is pressed(screen switch)the screen switch activates hibernate and power saving;if you press the power button a screen will open informing you what programs are currently shutting down you have caused an illegal command.
hopefully if you restart in safemode then shut down correctly and restart every thing should be ok.

Sony PCG-F340 keeps shutting down

Old Sony laptops do this when the battery is dead, or the charging system is below required voltage. A battery with a dead cell (which this sounds like) can damage your external PSU and internal battery/power regulator circuit. Remove the battery (shut down and disconnect PSU first). You can run the laptop forever, without the battery, if you cannot find a battery replacement, or do not like the cost. Obviously, though, the laptop will not run at all without the AC/PSU connected when the battery is removed.

Computer will not shut down

You can try the Ctl-Alt Del keys to see if you can get the task manager to come up. If you can then try to shut down using that. If not then the only choice you really have is to manually power down and restart. Chances are pretty good Windows will clean up after itself and should boot backup. During the process if you receive any error messages or warnings document them. Windows may also prompt you for a hard drive scan, let it. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate this post.
