    Does my new Acer Laptop shut down after sleeping for 30 minutes?

    Cannot find any info anywhere on this--not even in the manual. When I put my Acer laptop on sleep, the light on the front edge blinks for 30 minutes. Then, it stops. That's ok, but does that mean it's in shutdown mode or still sleeping? The hardware settings page does not provide any info or...

    ASUS UX501J Powering up in sleep mode, with the screen closed.

    Hello. I seem to be having an opposite problem from most ASUS users here. Instead of my computer not turning on, my computer loves to turn on all by itself, even when it's closed. I haven't been able to catch the moment when it does this, if it does it after x amount of time, but I have gone...
