Computer shuts down in sleep mode

Hi guys

So this problem is really getting on my nerves and I really want it to stop
When the computer goes to sleep mode, it works.
But then when I wake it up (by pressing a key on the keyboard) the fans blare on and the laptop immediately turns off!
An help would be fantastic i really would appreciate it

My laptop:

Acer Aspire 4740g
Windows 7-home premium

After a "Wake-up failure", how does the laptop get "re-booted" and running Windows-7?

Do you get any error message(s) booting up, and/or after Windows is up and running?

My guess is you are getting a BSOD on a sleep/wake-up.

To determine if you are getting a BSOD (you have a MEMORY.DMP or MINIDUMP file) follow the instructions at

If you are getting a BSOD, follow the "BSOD - Posting Instructions" for further help.

Do you have a C:\Windows\Memory.dmp file
or a file in the C:\Windows\Minidump\ folder ?

What i think is happening is the PC sleeps, crashes TRYING to wake-up, and shuts down.
When you re-boot it gives you the "shut down error message" you see.

For further help with this you need to follow the "BSOD - Posting Instructions" at

Note this in the instructions:

Please do not make a new thread if you already have made one on this subject. Please post in your existing thread.
