Shutting down Windows (Vista) seems to take far too long and sometimes the Aspire suddenly goes to sleep in the middle of a task?

Probably a program still running & not shutting down correctly.. You need to work out what it is & fix it.. Maybe needs update or patch etc. If you can look at the hardware or software logs or Ctrl Alt Del, to see what process is still running, it might give a clue as to the cause. But anyway, this is mostly due to something running in the background & refusing to terminate. In the end, the operating system 'kills' it and shutsdown, but your pretty sick of waiting by then.

I keep getting a white blank screen on my Acer Aspire 4315. Sometimes on boot-up, other times while in the middle of a task. It is running Vista and has only 1GB of memory so I've ordered 2GB. Not sure...


A blank white screen generally indicates a video problem on a laptop. This can be a bad lcd data cable, a bad video driver, or an overheating/disconnecting video chip.

Tip

Change the Sleep Button on the Start Menu to Shut Down


Want to shut down Vista with one click, instead of sleep.

Open Power Options in Control Panel

On the current plan your computer is running, click change plan settings

It will open Edit Plan Settings, find Change Advanced Power Settings and click on it.

Power Options will open, find the expandable tab that says Power Buttons and Lid, expand it.

Expand the tab that says Start Menu Power Button.

If you are running a laptop there will be two options, one for On Battery and one for Plugged in, click on the word sleep to open a pull down menu.

Click on the arrow, than Shut Down.

Click Apply and than okay. Close all Windows, Shut Down should be on the start menu instead of sleep

make sure you are not just selecting sleep option instead of shut down, some comps have the sleep option set where the shut down one is .

hope that helps

Computer will not shut down


I have not switched to Vista, but I would try starting the Task Manager (right click on the task bar and select task manager). Then I would select the Processes tab and start killing processes to see if you can track down which one is causing your problem. Assuming you can narrow this problem down to a single process you'll at least have a fighting chance at solving fixing this.

Good luck.

Vista wakes up on it's own. Never goes to sleep.


Sounds like you've tried all the obvious things. Did you check the BIOS settings and turn off all of the WAKE ON settings in there? Otherwise, it sounds like you might have a third party program which is scheduling without your knowledge (check your start up programs and running processes during normal use). If, when asleep, the machine runs a fan, it may also be waking up for the OS to receive a power or overheat warning message from the BIOS.

Problems with machines not going to sleep when asked are often related to drivers that are not unloading when asked to prepare for the sleep/hibernation process. If you have installed any new hardware (or driver heavy software like specialized encryption or hard drive management stuff) trying uninstalling it and testing the sleep functionality.

Ideas, anyway.
