When ever I plug the power into the laptop the thing instantly powers
up and begins to boot.
If I leave the battery in, unplug it, turn it off manually, after
awhile the thing begins to boot up all over again, and will eventually
drain the battery.
Also, I have the internal power settings to turn off the drives after
a few minutes. Which they do, then suddenly turn back on again. At no
particular set intervals?
The only thing I can think of is that the "on/off" slide switch is
Anyone know what might likely be the cure?
Re: auto boot up when power is plugged in
I'm not familiar with your system but wuold suggest the following:
1. With your system running on the battery; shut it down. Remove the
battery. Put the battery back in and restart your machine. If Windows
says that it wasn't shut down properly, then you are not turning off
your system when you press the power button.
2. Check BIOS settings for the action taken when the power button is
pressed. It could be set to suspend the system instead of shutting it down.
3. Check the BIOS for power settings that may cause the system to
restart. Look for options that start with "Wake on ...."; these will
cause the system to restart when an external event occurs. If you are
leaving your ethernet cable plugged in, then the "wake on lan" option
may be restarting your system.
4. Look for a power option that will cause the system to restart when AC
5. Remove the battery and run the system on AC power only. Shut it down.
If it restarts on its own then it wasn't shut down when you thought it
was turned off. Repeat the process and immediately unplug the system.
Plug it back in - if it restarts then you've a bad power switch or a
BIOS option to restart the system when AC power appears.
