Re: snooze button on my acer keyboard
It is recommended that you press the Power button less than 4 seconds to wake your system from Standby mode. Do not hold the Power button in for longer than 4 seconds as this will shut down your system.
You can wake your system from Sleep mode with the keyboard or mouse by configuring your monitor to turn off before your system goes into Standby. To do this, follow the steps below.
Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
Double-click Power Management
