Device wont wake from sleep, but gets worse.
I have an Acer Desktop. it’s old, but I’m really trying not to spend too much at the moment. When I let the device fall asleep for more than 10 minutes, the computer won’t wake from sleep. however, it also loses responsiveness. holding the power button does not boot it up. I have checked if it is the front panel having an intermittent cold circuit, by opening the PC and shorting the front panel Pwr Pins. This did not fix the issue.
as I continued my testing, if I leave it to the point where the device doesn’t wake and the power button doesn’t power it down if held, if I unplug it, wait 10 seconds, and plug it back in, the device doesn’t boot. I have to leave it for a few hours before the device will power on again.
This feels like a PSU or board issue, but I was wondering if anyone has experienced this, and can either verify my thoughts or point me in the right direction?
