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 make my screen brighter please? its driving me insane!


I have an Acer lap top and there is an Fn (function key) Icon on the <i and the i> keys that mimic a sun device. If you hold down the Fn key and tap the I> key down over on the right sideof the machine, then those taps should brighten the screen. Holding down the Fn key (left side) and tapping the <i key will dim the screen.
