Hi! I have an emachines laptop E525.I is not going on

moved you out of monitors and into laptops, only forum. emachines full model not old like this example E525-901G1Mi windows 7 loaded day1.
  • the switch is bad Lid close switch
  • set wrong in power settings.
  • or the driver is missing that makes this switch work.
so why not just assign the sleep mode, to auto sleep then on what does the power button do in settings, set to do nothing or set button to only sleep . (3 choices here) or let auto sleep do the work, set. set to say 5min idle. the switch is inside it deep and if you rip it out as you go there most noobs break 2 or 3 FFC cable jacks and now it is bricked and $300 mobo wrecked emachines or junk grade, made by Acer.com owned now and that maker does NOT have service manuals making service a royal Pain. best is work around the problem as I just told how. or ask any shop to fix it. they do know how.!!!
