Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.
Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.
If you are in safe mode, you should be able to shut down or restart the computer the same way you would in standard mode. Click the start button and select shut down or restart, and let it boot up normally. If you do not have the start button, you can try holding down control-alt-delete and selecting shut down from the menu. If all else fails you can hold down the power button on the computer for about ten seconds and the computer should power off, then you can turn it back on.

What operating system are you using? When the power led continues to slowly blink, that means that the laptop is in standby mode and not fully shut down. In Vista, if you hit the power button on the laptop or the power button under the start button, it is configured to go to standby and not shut down. Make sure to hit the arrow all the way to the right and select shutdown from the list of dropdown options.
I would need some more information to completely help you. When you say you walk away and the pc shuts down and starts back up, does it close down (reboot) or does it go into screen saver / sleep mode? What button did you push for the power button light to blink? Have you put the PC into sleep / hibernation mode by pressing the power button once.
The set is detecting a problem internally and shutting down to prevent further damage. This is often call protection mode. I would guess that there is either a bad connection somewhere or a part starting to fail. If there is a pattern to the failures, a quick trip to the repair shop is in order armed with that info. Rough guess would be abaout $30 in parts plus the local labor rate. This is based upon my own repair experience with these systems.
Ahi little ben,
This is a very easy fix,
the guitars for GH run by battieries and each guitar is fitted with a power saving mode.
When the guitar isnt used for a period of time, it shuts down, and blinks[the blinking lets you know when power saving mode is on]
What you need to do is press the, usually middle, button on the guitar, its not start or select, but its usually labeled 'link'
Good luck, PS try through the fire and flames on expert ;)
