Hi

So i've been having this problem where i put my computer into sleep mode and then i leave it for half an hour then when i come back i wake it up and the fans turn on but hten it immediately goes off?
Then we i turn it back on it says ''windows did not turn off properly''!

It's really annoying and any help would be grately appreciated

My Computer is a ACER ASPIRE 4740g with windows 7 Home premium
 
I have seen this issue before on an work HP running XP Pro. I know it is a configuration issue but it was not resolved on that machine (the machine in question went to our headquarters IT for a propriety hardware upgrade and has been unheard of since).

Strange, how are you waking it up? In windows power options, is the power button set to shutdown computer when pressed?

I am having exact same issue with the new build, and no, disabling something =/= repairing it, at least not in my books : )

This seems like a bios issue, btw if this was fixed on your side, please let me know what helped.
