Shutdown when I close the lid in my Notebook

Hi, I'm just reinstalled my Acer 4736G with Win7. The previous one is Win XP.

After I installed Win7 Ultimate, there's something that don't go right,
1. When I close the lid of my notebook, it's shutdown not go to sleep mode even the setting in power management is Sleep. What should I do ?

2. The button in the right, such as : Vol +, Vol -, Bluetooth, Wireless. Why it can't display the logo in the desktop. In Win XP it will show when I press each of it. Ex. When I press Bluetooth button, it will appeared "B" (bluetooth logo).

I'm already installed the drivers for, Sound Card, Chipset, Card Reader, Bluetooth, Camera from the sites.

Can anyone help me

Thanks.

Hi Gyverd

The on screen pictures for volume/Bluetooth/Wireless etc on acer notebooks are controlled by a program called "Launch Manager" download and install this and see if that brings your icons back. Acer Support: Welcome to Acer Support

Yeah. It worked. I'm already downloaded that one but not installed it. After you said, I'm installing it.

But what about the sleep problem when I close the lid ? What should I do ?

Thanks.

Thanks.
Click on the start orb, type power options and select it when it appears.
Under power buttons and lid you can change it from shut down to sleep. you will have to do this for all the power plans that you use (Power saver, Balanced and High performance)
I hope this helps

Follow what pooch has said and change the settings for all the power plans you use.That should do it.I know you stated you have tried this but just double check to make sure.

Yeah. Already Done that. Everything about Power Button, Lid Action is SLEEP. But the result is the same.
It's Restart the notebook, I don't even have one action that using "Restart" only Sleep.

Sorry my mistake.. It's Restart not Shutdown. So when I opened the lid, it starting from the bios again.

Anything else I can do ?

Thanks anyway for Pooch and Danny

Hi gyverd

Try restoring all the power plans back to default and then just change the lid close action only to the setting you want.I'm lost a bit now are you trying to get it to sleep or shut down when you close the lid

Can you get the notebook to sleep without closing the lid using the Fn and which ever F button it is on your system.Does it sleep if forced too
