Question about Computers & Internet
My pc start up normally and after a few minutes just turn off and the power button just blinks
It sounds like you have "Hibernation" mode activiate. Try these steps to re-configure Hibernation....
It can be configured to kick in automatically via the Power Options Properties screen. In the screen capture below I've selected the Portable/Laptop power scheme that includes a setting to put the system into hibernation mode after 3 hours of system inactivity.
The Advanced Tab in Power Options Properties gives you the option of setting Power buttons to invoke hibernation. Many keyboards contain a 'Sleep' key that is very convenient to use with hibernation as illustrated in the screen capture below.
You can select "NEVER" in the pull down menu....
Let me know if this helps!
