Snooze button on my acer keyboard

My daughter keeps pressing the snooze button on the top right hand corner of my Acer keyboard, it's a little button marked Zz. What do I do to get my computer out of this "sleep mode"?

    Every time I accidently hit that Zz button it goes off and I have to reboot. I want to turn off the functionality of it on my keyboard. Perhaps I will just pull that button off.

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.

  1. Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
  2. Double-click Power Management
  3. Ensure the Home/Office Desk setting for "System Standby" is set longer than "Turn off Monitor" and set "Turn off Hard Disks" to Never.

How do I access the question mark

All you have to do is hold the SHIFT key down and then press the BACKSLASH (/) key. This should allow you to access your question mark character.

Here is a link to an image of an ACER Keyboard:

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.

You can see the QUESTION MARK / BACKSLASH key near the lower right hand corner of the keyboard in that image.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

My del button wont work on acer 5235 or backspace help needed please

Easiest a new keyboard. Beyond that, pop the keys out with a butterknife, and insure that nothing is keeping them from fully depressing. If there's no obstruction, you might try completly pulling the case off the keyboard itself. If you've never done this, you'll find that each "key" on the keyboard corresponds to a matching "black button" on the physical board itself. The Key pressing on this button is what sends the signals to your computer that a keystroke has been made. Try pressing that little "black button" with a pencil or something, and see if it registers. If it does, you just need a new key, if not, the board is shot and it's cheapest to get a whole new keyboard.

I know that i've kind of watered this down, but i hope it points you in the right direction.

Can`t figure out keyboard on acer aspire one, blue numbers and letters etc Karl

blue number etc are functions that are connected to the blue fn button in the left hand corner.
press and hold the blue fn button and at the some time one of the other buttons.
eg volume + or - for volume up and down or the moon shape for hibernate, or the sun to change the screen brightness,antenna button to switch on and of your bluetoot or wifi, or the screen button to switch on and off your external monitor port on the back etc. the blue number are your numeric keypad like on a normal keyboard this can be used in the same way by holding the blue fn button down at the same time.

I hope this was helpful

New acer desktpo and keyboard first time turned on everything appeared to be working well, turned on second time, screen had small line flashing left hand top corner nothing else. what haave we done wrong?


Make sure there is no diskette or cd in the drives, and reboot the machine. If it continues to give you the single cursor, then you have other issue to deal with, I'd contact Acer immediately, and return the unit.

Thanks Mark

How do we key the question mark key, only get the french colored letters

To change this keyboard back to English, hold the Shift key and press Control once.

If this helps, please be sure to hit the "thumbs up" for me.

If not, use the "add comment" up on the top-right corner and we'll troubleshoot it further.

that means that the keyboard has been set to a different language. On my screen at the bottom right hand is a little keyboard icon and when i click on it it lets me scroll through US English, Canadian French and Canadian Multilingual Standard. If the keyboard is set to the Canadian French option (or whatever other option that is available on your keyboard in red characters) the number two button changes function.

Green keys on bilingual (EN FR) keyboard

Finally I figured it out. Hold the shift control function keys at the same time. This will turn the green key function on and off.
