Having problems with your Acer Aspire 6920 Notebook PC ?

Sleep, hibernation and shut down problems

\015 I hope you folks can help. I have an ACER ASPIRE 6920 purchased in October 2008, so close to 5 months old now. Over the past month, my laptop has developed an extremely irritating problem. It doesn't sleep, doesn't hibernate, and won't shut down properly, unless I manually hold the button down. To explain further, when I use the sleep function the computer switches off (not the regular shutdown process, it doesn't even say computer shutting down), and then 5 seconds later, it will switch back on its own, with the windows error recovery saying, Windows was not shut down properly. When I try hibernating, the same thing happens. When I shut down, it will restart on its own again in 5 seconds, and won't switch off permanently unless I manually hold down the button. Of course, I should say other than this the computer works like a dream, however as my profession requires me to be quite mobile and flexible with my work, in addition to the responsibility of downloading important large tech presentations and documents as part of my job, the sleep function was very important to me, and is now effecting my efficiency. I would really appreciate your help.\015\012\015\012I guess it would also be beneficial to let you all know, the things that I have already tried to rectify this problem. I have unchecked auto-restart, I have even gone to my device manager, and on all the power management tabs, I have made sure to uncheck enable this device to wake computer. However, the problem still persists. From what I have googled, the only thing I haven't yet done is go to BIOS settings, as to be quite honest I don't know how to get into BIOS settings for Acer.\015\012\015\012Sorry for the long question. I thank all the experts for taking the time to read this, and I genuinely hope someone can help me.\015\012\015\012Cheers,\015\012\015\012Wasim\015

Toshiba a135 laptop screen goes blank during battery use. only way to recover is to put the laptop to sleep blinking orange, and then restart. This action keeps the screen on. Could this be a bios problem? After recovery the power cord is plugged in and the situation never repeats during that session of running. This happens somewhat regularly.

You indicated that this ONLY happens when the battery is being used and does not happen if the power supply is being used. This indicates that battery may very well be the problem.More clarification ok? Do the following for me:\015\ ... Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook
