Acer Travelmate 4670 Power Button LED

Hi, when i shut down my Laptop, it shuts down, the power light switches off at the front side of the laptop, but for some reason, the actual power button light and the email light stays on. To top off, because these two lights constantly stay on, the battery drains so fast.

Now, I have already disabled Vista's email application, and am not using any other email application.
I also opened up the front cover and brushed away dust and checked for any touching cables in there.
Unplugged the battery for a couple days and that didn't work.

I'm all out of ideas....

Do guys have any ideas that might help out????

Hoping that I'll be able to use it "on the go" again...

Thanx,
~Shuaib

Check your power settings:

Start
Control Panel
Performace Information and Tools
Adjust power settings (in left hand collumn)

Whatever is indicated with a bullet in front of it - click "Change plan settings"
Then choose "Change advanced power settings"

Make sure your Power Button is not set to hibernate instead of shut down.

Good Luck.

When I go to start menu to shut down and press shut down it will just reboot and will ot shut down


Step 1:
Laptop computers can be wonderful devices, except when the need to troubleshoot arises. Acer laptops are no different. A quick way to fix many problems with an Acer laptop running Windows is to reset it to factory settings. Resetting your Acer laptop to factory settings can eliminate slow operation, registry problems, virus problems and spyware issues. What's more, a factory reset of your laptop may reduce the need for a full reinstallation of Windows.

Back up all necessary data to an external device such as a disk, flash drive or hard drive Make sure all programs are closed and shut down your Acer laptop. Detach any external hardware such as an external hard drive or printer. Press the Power button to boot your Acer laptop. Press "Alt-F10" on your keyboard when the Acer screen appears at the start of the boot-up process. Wait a moment while Windows loads the reset files. Select "Restore System from factory default" in the Acer eRecovery Management window. Click "Next" on the next screen to continue. Click "Next" on the following destination information window. This will pop up a notice telling you that resetting your Acer laptop will erase all data and restore the laptop to its original settings and configuration. Click "OK" in the notice window to proceed with resetting your Acer laptop. Wait while your Acer laptop is reset to factory settings.

    Blank screen although power light on and fan running.


    Hello,

    Please force shut down the unit if it still is on. Then, press the power button and see if it starts up.

    If that doesn't work, then please disconnect everything from the unit (Battery and A/C) and Reseat the RAM and recheck.

    Blue led power light blinks even after shutdown


    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.
