I left my laptop on sleep mode over night, went to turn it on the next day and it would not come out of sleep. I powered down the laptop and then tried turning it back on but I only heard the fan turn on and the cd drive lights up along with the power button's led. I have left it unplugged with the battery removed for 2 days and tried starting it with just the plug after that and it did the same thing. I then removed the memory modules and tried starting up but still the same issue, and I tried powering it up as I put the memory modules in one by one. Sometimes when I power the laptop instead of the fan coming on it stays quiet with the led light on, or will run the fan and then it will power off then power back on. The laptop is only a few months old, it is a Sager NP2096 and has had no problems up until now.

There's nothing wrong with powering your laptop, or desktop, down by clicking the Power button and letting it go into standby, sleep, or hibernate mode, much of the time. On your laptop, usually just tapping the Power Button will perform the same function as the following instructions. When doing this, click on the symbol just to the right of the Start button.This allows all open windows to be suspended properly, with current data saved.When you startup the next morning, your open programs will still be running in the background. Clicking on your logon will have your right back where you left off. If you see the same symbol with the exclamation mark , click and leave the computer alone, because it will be in the process of installing important updates before shutting down.
Nothing beats a complete "Shut Down" through the Start menu in the lower left-hand corner of your Windows screen. Mouse-over to the far right icon, and click on Shut Down in the popup window.All your open programs will be closed properly, data saved, and memory and cache cleared. This is like going to bed at night with nothing on your mind, sleeping soundly, and waking up refreshed in the morning.
Then, when the computer is powered up the next time, it will be operating at its optimum performance levels without being "bogged" down with excessive leftover garbage from previous sessions. It leaves you with a fresh start-up the next time you are ready to use your computer.
To summarize, tapping the Power button most of the time, and allowing the computer to enter sleep mode, is fine. Occasionally, do a complete Shut Down to clear everything out of memory. Your laptop/desktop will thank you...lol.
OpenControl Panel, Power settings, Advanced Power settings, change SLEEP to Never, Hibernate to never. Shut down and unplug, if you use mostly on AC, remove battery, your laptop when not in use. It will last longer, if there is a power surge not be damaged, and a reboot every day resets the computer.
I find sleep mode nothing but trouble, eventually corrupts window files over extended use, go into power options, go to stand by and select never and click apply, next go to hibernate "top right" and click, make sure the check box is clear, if not! remove check and click apply and restart your laptop.
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.

Your laptop went into sleep mode/hibernate. In many cases windows could not recover from these situations. One solution is to update the BIOS of your laptop on the acer website. Easy way to fix it is setting your power options under control panel. You can configure the settings here if your pc is idle to prevent sleep mode or hibernate.
