Question about Acer Aspire 5740-6025 Notebook
For no reason screen shuts down to black and computer turns off except fan still running. I have to restart. This happens if I leave the computer for awhile. This has only started in the last couple of weeks. Also I am not all that familiar with the technical side of things. bebe
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.

That is a problem of BIOS. U need to reset your BIOS.
Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery
The AA1 has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore. It's only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.
Follow every step carefully!
First format an USB stick with FAT.
Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.
Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.
The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

Ok Take out the battery and leave it out for about an hour. IN the time its out Run the laptop on AC power and then go to control panel, open power options, and remove the hibernation check, and the turn the system standby to never, then hit apply. Then turn you laptop off and re insert the battery. If you still get the shutdown where it wont run on battery, then you need to replace the battery.

Possible Virus and Malware
There is a good chance that you have a virus or malware that is keeping those programs from opening. It does not matter these days what security you have if the door to the web is opened. At the end of this are two links to programs that you should load up and run. The first is MalwareBytes Ant-Malware Tool, the other is Avast Anti-Virus 4.8, install these two and let them perform scans.
Run MalwareBytes first and perform a quick scan, when it finishes, it will ask you to post the results, when it does delete everything it finds.
Run Avast and install it, when it asks, go ahead and schedule a pre-boot scan of your entire system. This should get rid of most problems….

Your computer seems to be overheating. Probably the heat sink or air path to the CPU is dirty, or you have a hardware device making interference with the air path way. You may also have bad BIOS configuration try downloading and running core temp 1.0 google it. The program will give you recommended fan speeds and will tell you the temperature of the system. If non of this works, your computer is a SIMPLY lemon.
