Laptop: Acer Aspire 1353LC
15" XGA TFT LCD
AMD Athlon XP-M 2400+
768M DDR SDRAM
VIA/SG3 KM400/KN400 Video 64MB shared
Connected: Logitech optical mouse, Toucam 840Pro webcam, 802.11G Wifi
PC-card in slot, headphones, microfoon.
When I close my laptop, it goes into standby mode.
Problem: Very often the laptop exits standby mode while the screen is
This lasts for a minut to several minutes. Then it goes in standby mode
Sometimes it stays on for half an hour or more with the screen closed.
This happens several times in one night.
When opening the screen in this situation, it sometimes goes in standby
again, but most of the time it stays on. Then I close the screen again and
it goes in standby.
In daytime the laptop is used normally, so is not closed.
I searched google, could not find anything on this...
With best regards, EDJO.
Re: Acer Aspire 1353 Standby
A laptop should have a microswitch mounted to detect that the
lid is opened or closed. If the microswitch is broken and is
making an intermittent electrical contact, perhaps that is causing
the funny standby operation ?
If you look in Event Viewer, are there any errors shown in there ?
I would be looking for a software reason for the problem, by looking
in the Event Viewer.
You could also try removing some of your added hardware, such
as the webcam. If some of your add-in hardware has a problem,
perhaps that causes the flaky operation.
