Brand new Acer windows 7, won't turn on or off

hasy, Jul 28, 6:57am
Help we bought it yesterday we thought we had turned it off, came back to it a hour or so later. The blue on switch was on but the screen black. I tried to turn it off, the blue light would not go off. No matter what I did even when disconnect it from wall, it didn't do anything. Also the light on the front side also would not go off.
Can anyone help please

push and hold power button until it shuts down - not a 'nice' shutdown just a last resort

Thank you [king] I did what you suggested and it worked!

Laptop probably turned off the display after a preset time. Then after that, it will "go to sleep" if you leave it a while longer. You can change what happens by using the power options.

Yeah I hope it wasn't doing windows updates since it's brand new.
