Acer one with windows 7 ultimate fall into sleep mode


A laptop computer is typically set to conserve battery power. One of the common settings called standby, sleep mode or hibernation turns off power to the screen and the laptop itself after a preset time limit passes without any mouse or keyboard activity. It can be inconvenient for the computer to shut down while you're working on an open page or during a download. Change the setting if you don't want your laptop to going into automatic shutdowns

Turn the laptop computer on with the power button if it's not set to turn on upon opening. Allow the system to boot up. Open the panel for adjusting the sleep settings. This varies among the popular versions of Windows operating systems. To change the sleep mode setting on a laptop running Windows XP, click the "Start" button, and click the "Control Panel" selection. Choose the "Performance and Maintenance" selection, and click on "Power Options." Click the "Power Schemes" tab, and click the drop downs next to "Turn Off Monitor," "Turn Off Hard Disk," "System Standby" and "System Hibernates." Select "Never" for each drop down in both the "Plugged in" and "Running on Battery Power" columns. Click the "Hibernate" tab and click to remove the check mark in the box next to "Enable Hibernation." To change the sleep settings on a Windows Vista laptop, click "Start," "Control Panel," "Systems and Maintenance" and "Power Options." Then click "Change Plan Settings" under the currently established plan. Click on the "Advanced Settings" tab and select the "Never" option on the "Sleep," "Sleep After," "Hibernate After," "Display" and "Turn off Display After" drop downs. Click the "OK" and "Save Changes" buttons to confirm the settings. To change the sleep settings on a laptop running Windows 7, click the "Start" button, choose "All Control Panel Items," select "Power Options" and click "Edit Plan Settings." Click the drop downs for "Turn off the Display" and "Put the Computer to Sleep." Choose "Never" for both and click the "Save Changes" button.

My Acer 5583 laptop will not turn on


Acer notebooks with the Windows operating system installed give computer users the ability to set power-saving options. For example, with Standby or Sleep mode, the computer will turn off certain battery-consuming features and save all open files in memory. If Hibernate is enabled, after a period of time, the computer will turn itself off after it saves all open files to the hard disk drive. You may save time in troubleshooting by first verifying the settings that control how your notebook powers on and off.

1. Press the "Power" button to turn the computer on and recover from Hibernation or open the lid of the Acer notebook to awaken it from Sleep mode. If your computer does not power up, continue.

2. Click the "Start" button, click "Control Panel," and then click "System and Security."

3. Click "Power Options" and then click "Change plan settings" on the "Select a power plan" page.

4. Click "Change advanced power settings" on the "Change settings for the plan" page.

5. Double-click "Sleep" on the "Advanced settings" tab and then double-click "Sleep after."

6. Click one or both of the "On battery" or "Plugged in" options and then click the arrow.

7. Click "Never" and then double-click "Hibernate after."

8. Click one or both of the "On battery" or "Plugged in" options and then click the arrow.

9. Click "Never" and then double-click "Display."

10. Double-click "Display" and then double-click "Turn off display after."

11. Click one or both of the "On battery" or "Plugged in" options and then click the arrow.

12. Click "Never," click "OK," and then click "Save changes." If you still experience problems, visit the Acer website and check if updated drivers are available for your Acer notebook. The link is listed in References.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Computer won't come back on after going to sleep mode.


If you computer is going into hibernation, the best thing to do is disable it. These days it is better for the pc to stay on for updates and scans. Right click on an empty area on the desktop, click properties, click screensaver, click power set turn off hard discs, standby and hibernate to never, I usualy turn monitors off after 30 min

Computer does not stay in hibernation or standby mode


That happen because on the stand by or hibernate setting the time was setting in 5 minutes.

And set the time right there as your preferences.

It sounds like you are getting a blue screen error.
Most of the time these are resolved by manually running CHKDSK /R

To check for a blue screen error, right click on "My Computer"
Go to properties, click on the "advanced" tab, Click on the "Startup and Recovery" settings button.
Under "System Failure" uncheck "Automatically Restart"

Now if your computer is restarting do to an error then you will see the blue screen.
