Wants to shut down even when plugged in

Even when plugged in, after awhile the screen asks if I want to stay on battery or go to sleep, I want it to stay on and it should not be on battery power as I have it plugged in. It is getting power because it will charge up

Shuts down to black screen


Sounds like it is going into Sleep or Hibernation mode.
In Control panel go to Power options and see what the settings are.
Getting out of sleep mode is accomplished by pressing the power button once.

Hi! When I shut my computer down the lights do not


When you shut off your PC do you:
1) Give it enough time (could take from 1 minute to 10 minutes) to shut down completely (easy sign is if the fun continues to run or lights are on)?

2) Clicked Hibernate or Sleep OR closed your laptop screen before it completely finished shutting down (this could put the PC to sleep and it would remain on, so the lights would remain on, until you woke it by moving a mouse, flipping the screen back and forth for a bit or pressing the start button (not holding))?

3) Have it plugged in (depending on the model, a light might stay on if it is charging even if it is not on(probably not this one since you said it turns off after a Hard shutdown (don't do this since this damages your computer and will make it break down after continued use)))

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power


You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

Compac pasario c500 on/off light just blinks when I power on computer screen stays blank?


Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. If it reboots, open Control Panel, Power Options, Advanced power settings, Change Sleep and Hibernate to Never. Adjust the settings to your preference. Set the Screen Saver time. When your laptop is not in use shut it down and unplug, this will prolong life and a reboot everyday will reset your laptop.

I have problem with my acer aspire one note book, even after shut down i see light on bottom left corner,on screen and, if i remove battery then it goes, and again comes when i connect battery, thanks,...


make sure you are not just selecting sleep option instead of shut down, some comps have the sleep option set where the shut down one is .

hope that helps

Laptop keeps shutting itself off


Check the power settings - most laptops are set to sleep even if plugged in to AC power - go to Control Panel -> Power Options and check for sleep/shutdown settings under "Plugged In".

Does the mouse & keyboard turn off or sleep?


check your windows settings. They are in your power settings. You can adjust your computer to whatever you want.
right click on destop and goto properties, then click on screen savers tab.. see the power settting button now?? You should be able to tell it what to do for everything to do with Power.
