I can't "wake" my aspire 3628 ANWXCi from standby

When my aspire 3628 goes on standby, more often than not i can't "wake" it. maybe 10% of the time, if i hit the "enter" key, the motor comes on and the screen lights up again. but most of the time, the motor comes on, the indicator lights light up, but the screen remains blank. and nothing that i do works, like holding the power button down for a few seconds, typing control-alt-del. i always end holding down the power key and turning the computer off, then on again. its getting quite frustrating. please help.

Go to the Acer website and download latest e manager software drivers, they may be corrupt. http://www.acer.co.uk/acereuro/page74.do?UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=17&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&crc=2553782219

Unable to ''wake'' computer

You need to go into your BIOS and set your power management to default, and then go into windows and set your power management (under "settings") to get it to do whatever you need it to do. For example, if it hangs on standby, and you have in your settings that it is supposed to go into standby after 30 minutes, you can disable the standby to get rid of the problem. A side note: Have your hard drive turn off after about 10 minutes or so. Otherwise you are just wearing it out for absolutely no reason at all, and HD power up times is less than a second or two. Hardly noticeable.

Dell SE198WFP 19" LCD won't come out of standby

I went into the BIOS (with F2 during restart) and changed a value -- IIRC it was called something like "power management scheme" -- from the default S3 to the other choice, S1. Now the old Dell XP Dimension 2350 will go into and out of Standby correctly and the new SE198WFP 19" LCD will too.

Not turning back on after sleep mode

I had the same problem when I first bought my Acer Aspire One a few weeks ago. I searched the web for answers, but it didn't really seem like anyone had a solution. However, one guy on a forum or website said something that gave me an idea - he said something like: What's the problem? Just open it up, hit the power button, type your password, and it wakes up.

Well, that didn't seem helpful to me at the time that I read it, but after thinking about it, I had a hunch. I had not set up my netbook to have a password (yet). So I did. And it's been waking up from sleep mode like it should ever since!!!

Hopefully, if you're reading this, setting a password will work for you, too. If you don't know how to set a password, here goes... Start...Control Panel...User Accounts...Change an Account...[Pick your name.account]...then the option to create a password should come up. Let us know if this works for you!

Cant wake up my sony laptop

Hold the power button down until the machine shuts off, then reboot. Several laptops have this issue (standby either works or it doesn't), and I've never been able to resolve the issue on the ones that don't work properly, in the future set the machine so that it never goes into standby.

Acer 5110 won't standby properly

Check the power-save settings / properties. You may have to hit a specific key to "wake" it up. To make things worse, sometimes you have to hit yet ANOTHER key to wake it from hibernate.

ESD noise (fluorescent lamp power-on) also wakes the computer from standby

Make sure Wake on function turned off, Wake on LAN, modem ring...(Bios Setup)
Use a surge protector anyway!!!
Conect the lamp to a difrent place away from the computer.

You can buy expensive filters too or just buy a new lamp.

If you can try the lamp with another computer, make sure whats the real problem!
