Well that seems like a waste of energy. Anyway that is your problem. The Power/Sleep button has a dual function: Power ON/OFF and Sleep. A short press will turn the timer on and you will see numbers like 90, 75, 60,...10, 01. pPressing again will cycle to the next sleep duration. If your radio has a short duration timer it will seem that it is turning itself off.
To activate a normal Power up, your first press should last longer (I cannot tell you how long, you will have to try it on your own.) You should not see the timer durations, just the frequency of the station its was last tuned to. In addition, no loudspeaker should be displayed at the lower right corner.
There is no programming on this radio. With power and an antenna connected, turn the power on and you should see a channel number in the display. Turn the volume up about 1/4 of the way, and turn the squelch down. You should hear either transmissions or noise. If all you get is silence, the receiver section is "fried." If the unit does not power up at all (no lights/displays at all) then you most likely have a blown fuse - a simple fix.
It seems the two oval lights on the front of the Acer TravelMate 3003LCi are not only lights to indicate WiFi traffic, but also buttons
to turn the WiFi radio on and off for security reasons. If you press
and hold the left side button for 3-5 seconds it should turn back on
the WiFi radio. Windows XP (and maybe other OS’s) have a power saving
function that turns the radio off when not in use to save the battery,
so you have to use the buttons to turn the radio back on. Seems like a
pain in the @$$ to me, but it’s a clients laptop not mine so he will
have to live with that.
I hope this helps someone so they do not have to go through the
frustration of trying to figure out why the radio has been turned off.
