My asus a639 shuts down within 3 minutes when unused and the only way to start it up is by pressing the reset button. The control buttons on the base of the machine also don't work at all.?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thankyou for trying but the problem is not the actual shutting down, it is the fact that the buttons will not work to turn it on.

Check the power settings - Start>Control Panel>Power Options Properties>Power Schemes - make sure Turn off hard disks and System standby show Never. Go to the Hibernate tab and uncheck the Enable hibernation box.

That's a start...

How to reset the System Management Controller (SMC) - Intel based Macs


Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)

In some situations, you may need to reset your computer's SMC. Learn how to identify these conditions and reset the SMC.
The System Management Controller (SMC) is a chip on the logic board that controls all power functions. If the computer is experiencing any power issue, such as not starting up, not displaying video, sleep issues, or fan noise issues, resetting SMC may resolve it. To reset SMC:

1. If computer is on, turn it off by choosing Shut Down from the Apple menu.

2. Connect power adapter to computer and to a working power source.

3. On built-in keyboard, press (left-side) Shift-Control-Option along with power button just once. Important: Use Shift-Control-Option keys on left side of keyboard.Note: When the LED on the MagSafe connector is orange/amber, resetting the SMC will change it to green for a few seconds, indicating that SMC was correctly reset.

4. Wait 5 seconds and press power button to start computer. Note: If bottom case is removed, you can alternately reset SMC by disconnecting both power adapter and main battery, and holding down power button for 5 seconds.

TF700 WON'T TURN ON


There are a couple things to try.

Possible Problem: The tablet may have gone to sleep and a newly installed app or update is preventing the tablet from coming out of hibernation.

Solution: The tablet likely needs to re-start.

The trick is to know whether your tablet is in hibernation (actually running but not screen is turned off) or if it is actually turned off.

Scenario 1, tablet is on but is in hibernation mode
1. Press and hold the power button until you feel the vibrate. Then release. Wait 3 minutes (to make sure the tablet shuts down). After the 3 minutes go to scenario 2

Scenario 2, tablet is turned off.
1. Press and hold the power button. Keep pressing even after you feel the vibration (for about 30 seconds).

Other possible solutions:
If that does not work, then ...

2. Disconnect the tablet from the keyboard and press and hold (same as step 1 scenario 2).

3. If the others methods do not work, connect the tablet to a PC (with internet connection). Leave the tablet connected for a minimum of 30 minutes, but upto 2 hours. With the tablet connected to the PC, press and hold the power button (same as step 1 scenario 2).

If none of those worked, connect the tablet to a TV or monitor using the HDMI connection. If the TV/monitor displays the tablet, then use the display on the TV to reset to factory defaults and force a re-boot. While it is shutting down, disconnect from the TV.

If that does not work, check the user manual for how to reset the tablet to factory default settings.

Last but not least, contact Asus support because you might have to send it for service. But I suspect scenario 1 will work for you.

MacBook Pro is slow when disconnected with electric charging.


First step would be to Reset Your Mac's SMC
The method for resetting your Mac's SMC depends on the type of Mac you have. All SMC reset instructions require shutting down your Mac first. If your Mac fails to shut down, try pressing and holding the power button until the Mac shuts down, which usually takes 10 seconds or so.

Mac portables with user-removable batteries (MacBook and most MacBook Pros):

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Disconnect your Mac portable from its MagSafe connector.
3.Remove the battery.
4.Press and hold the power button for at least 5 seconds.
5.Release the power button.
6.Re-install the battery.
7.Reconnect the MagSafe connector.
8.Turn your Mac on.
Mac portables with non-user-removable batteries (MacBook Air and some late 2009 MacBook Pro models):

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Connect the MagSafe power adapter to your Mac and to a power outlet.
3.On the built-in keyboard (this will not work from an external keyboard), simultaneously press and hold the left shift, control, and option keys while you press the power button. Release all keys at the same time.
4.Press the power button to start your Mac.

Mac desktops (Mac Pro, iMac, Mac mini):

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Unplug your Mac's power cord.
3.Press and hold the Mac's power button for 15 seconds.
4.Release the power button.
5.Reconnect your Mac's power cord.
6.Wait five seconds.
7.Start your Mac by pressing the power button.

Alternative SMC reset for Mac Pro:

If you have a Mac Pro that isn't responding to the normal SMC reset as described above, you can force a manual SMC reset by using the SMC reset button located on the Mac Pro's motherboard.

1.Shut down your Mac.
2.Unplug the Mac's power cord.
3.Open the Mac Pro's side access panel.
4.Just below the Drive 4 sled and adjacent to the top PCI-e slot is a small button labeled SMC. Press and hold this button for 10 seconds.
5.Close the Mac Pro's side door.
6.Reconnect your Mac's power cord.
7.Wait five seconds.
8.Start your Mac by pressing the power button.
Now that you have reset the SMC on your Mac, it should be back to operating as you expect. If the SMC reset didn't fix your problems, you can try combining it with a PRAM reset. Although the PRAM works differently than the SMC, it can, depending on your Mac model, store a few bits of information that the SMC uses.

Asus Eee 1005HA hangs on boot


This works for my Asus Eee PC
1. Shut down and remove the battery.
2. Press the power button 10 times, next 1 minute pressing down.
3. Remove the memory and at the motherboard you'll see a clrrst (clear reset cmos..)
4. Short these 2 tiny pads by placing a tiny screw driver for 5 seconds, plug the power adapter and turn-on the switch, next wait at least for 3 seconds. Remove the power adapter.
5. Place back the battery and turn-on. You'll see the same screen (Logo of Asus) then patiently wait for at least 10 minutes or more. That's it.Good luck.

Asus mypal A639 keeps shutting down


I had this problem on my A639 after going on holiday with it (I think the x-ray scanners did something to it). It started switching itself off more and more as the days went by until one day it went off and never came back. After resetting it, it just stayed on the blue "ASUS Rock Solid Heart Touching" screen. I was worried that it was totally broken and I'd have to pay to get it repaired, but after searching the internet it turned out all I needed to do was re-flash the ROM with a fresh copy (I used the latest ROM). It now works fine and no longer turns itself off... didn't cost me ANYTHING to fix :-)

Hardware buttons does not work anymore...


My Asus A639 is also frozen on the blue Heart of Technology screen AGAIN. None of the buttons work, hold button is not active, cannot switch it off. The first time it was fixed by Asus under warrantee - took 5 weeks. The freeze might be related to using GPS software Copilot V6 - not certain.

Help please - how do I do a total reset?

ASUS MyPal A632 will not boot up.


Happened the same for me.
After lots of digging & googling I found the simple solution:

At the back of the PDA there is a "Hold" button. Change the position back and it starts to respond as usual before.
