I can't find a power switch at all. How do I turn it off?
I've tried looking it up and found reference to a sleep mode but it hasn't powered down yet. I can only find the one long thin button. So far I've managed to use it as a print button when I stalled a print job. If I push it twice in a row it prints test pages, and if I hold it down it runs through all the lights but clearly does not turn the machine off.

Turning Off the Kindle Quickly sliding the power switch on the Kindle enters and resumes sleep mode. If your Kindle enters a non-responsive state when sliding the power switch, you've likely entered sleep mode. Try sliding the power switch and holding it for four seconds to shut down the device. If it still does not shut off, you may need to reset the Kindle.
Resetting the Kindle The power switch also serves to reset the device. Before resetting the device, disconnect it from any power sources, such as an AC outlet or your computer's USB connection. Sliding the power switch and holding it for 20 seconds forces the Kindle to reset and power down. However, a nearly depleted battery may prevent this action. If the Kindle still doesn't shut off, try charging it for several hours and resetting it again.
The Vizio 1080P HDTV offers a variety
of features and input jacks that make it a true multimedia centerpiece.
Occasionally, however, there are a few scenarios in which the screen
Verify that all input cables and
your power cord are firmly inserted. If you are viewing a program that
utilizes RGB (red, green, blue) or HDMI cables, be certain your TV is
not in sleep mode. It will time out and appear blacked out in this case.
Verify your sleep timer hasn't been turned on. Try resetting the TV by
turning it off for 30 minutes.
If you experience limited or no
lights, the power supply is likely failing. If you feel comfortable
doing so, open the back of the TV and look at the power supply area
(shock hazard). Follow the power cord area to find it. Check for bad
capacitors, which look like small batteries with connectors soldered to
the board. They will be blown or bulged out. Replace them or the
complete power supply.
Verify your surge suppressor is
not bad. These often have a connected equipment guarantee that covers
your repair if a power surge caused failure. You can reset all settings
to original modes by pressing "Reset All Settings " in the Setup menu.
I think the problem has nothing to do with your TV. I bet the culprit lies on the setting of your remote control. Maybe you set your remote into a sleep mode. When a TV has set into a sleep mode. It's power on light is still red but doesn't work. So all you've got to do is keep pressing the sleep button. After a few presses, it will definitely work. And, you can now enjoy your day watching TV. Thanks.
I have same problem like yours to my newly installed Fujitsu multi-split system (the first time use since system installed 1 week ago). I rang the electrician who did the installation; he said it must be the units themselves nothing to do with electricity.
Okay, then I rang Fujitsu and their local service agent. They suggested me to switch off C/B for an hour to reset the units. I followed the instruction but the indoor units still did not respond to remote control...
It simply looks like no power supply to indoor units (they are hard-wired to the outdoor unit). So I used a multi-meter to test the power terminals of indoor units (Danger! If you have no idea about this, don't even try! ): it seemed no power supply even C/B is on. I turned to the isolator which next to the outdoor unit. The isolator was making arcing noise when I switched it on and off. The indoor units suddenly turned on for few minutes then died again.
So I figured out the problem is that crooked isolator. I called the unhappy electrician to replace the isolator. End story....
When the computer is on try just pushing the power button in and out once. if this doesn't work you may need to change some settings in the startup setup menu to keep sleep mode off. Usually when a computer is turned on there is something like "press F1 for Bios or DEL (something else) for setup" setup is where you'll want to go. it will look like an old MS DOS program but using your arrow keys to navigate you should be able to change the settings.
Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.
As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.
