Check the power-save settings / properties. You may have to hit a specific key to "wake" it up. To make things worse, sometimes you have to hit yet ANOTHER key to wake it from hibernate.

Standby function doesn't work

The stand by button is greyed out when A) your computer is too old to support the
Advanced Control Power Interface (ACPI) or B) ACPI is not configured properly.
Start->Control Panel->System->Hardware tab->Device Manager button. Do any of the
items have a red 'X' or a yellow '!' beside them?

Acer Notebook 5610Z - Want XP Drivers

if your currently able to surf the internet with your vista os id suggest downloading the drivers for windows xp from the manufacturer onto a usb storage device like a thumb drive or external hard drive(hdd).
after you have all the drivers you'll need have:
the windows xp disk.
1)before you restart the computer insert the windows xp disk into the cd-rom

2)resart the computer

3)when the computer starts to post press the appropriate hotkey to enter the bios(usually f1,f2 or delete key) it'll tell you on the splash screen.

4)check the boot order in the bios making sure the cdrom is the first boot device. if it is press f10 to save and let the computer boot.

5)on the upper left of the screen you'll see (boot from cd)press any key(hit a key quickly)
windows xp will then start loading on the computer.

6)windows will look for previous installations of operating systems and display them on the screen

7)click on the partition w/the current os (when you click the os will be highlighted)

8)xp will give you the choice to install delete or format the current partition

9)choose to delete the partition

after you delete the partition windows will show a matrix of the hard drive without partitions (RAW SPACE)

10)highlight the raw space
11)choose create
