Not intended to offend;
1. If using A/C (house electrical power), please check if electrical wall outlet is active. Attempt to plug-in another electrical device such as a lamp, clock, radio, etc.. If the electrical wall outlet has top and bottom plugs, try the top and then the bottom plug to see which one works. Sometimes, the top outlet will not work, yet the bottom outlet does work. The wall outlet should be replaced by qualified technician.
2. If both outlets do NOT work, and the outlet is GFCI breaker protected, maybe pressing the RESET switch on the outlet will power-up the outlet.
3. If the outlet is NOT GFCI breaker protected, check your electrical fuse box for a tripped fuse. Sometimes, a tripped fuse is NOT visible. May have to trip the specific fuse or all fuses to off, then back on. Recheck the wall outlet.
4. Once your know the outlet is live, check the power cord (a/c adapter for laptops) to make sure they are securely plugged-in to both the wall outlet AND the PC or Laptop.

Will need more information once the above steps are taken:

Is it a Desktop or Laptop?
Make and Model (if known)?
Any lights (glowing) on the desktop or laptop?
Any lights on the A/C adapter if its a laptop?

    generally if "the top outlet will not work, yet the bottom outlet does work", the wall outlet does not need to be changed by a qualified electrician, it's usually a switched receptacle, which means that mysterious switch in your house that you always thought did nothing at all, actually turns the top outlet on and off. it's for plugging in a lamp.

How do I disable power save mode


Press the Power key > Activate power saving. To deactivate power saving mode, press the Power key > Deactivate power saving.
When activated, the power saving mode turns off some functions automatically. Radio configuration in power saving mode include the cellular radio (it is set to 2G/GSM only mode), the Bluetooth radio (it is turned off) and the Wi-Fi/WLAN radio (scanning for new networks in turned off but existing networks keep functioning). The power saving mode also reduces display power consumption by minimizingscreen brightness and by turning off touch screen feedback and theme effects. In addition the vibra alerts are turned off in a power saving mode. Hope that helps Anomy.

Can't turn on power to desktop


Simple power hack, to do this, kind of like hot wiring your computer.

Turn the power on at the wall, Flick the switch on the back of the computer (if there is one on the back) to the on position, make sure the cable is plugged in, and turn the power off at the wall, hold the power switch on the front and turn the power on at the wall.

This will cause the power to jump across the switch, causing the computer so sound a bit like a motorbike being started.

The power will come on it will turn over click and go off. After this turn the switch of at the back of the computer, and turn it back on, and the computer will boot up.

The first bit of this is just charging the capacitors in the power supply, the second bit is turning your computer on.
