Cant get Acer desktop out of Standby

Acer Aspirerevo ar1600-u910h mini-tower...

Specs: Windows XP
I have gotten into the habit of putting my labtop into Hibernate instead of shutting it all the way down since it takes a lot less time to boot up.

Today I was going to do the same thing with my desktop but didnt have it so used Standby instead. Now I cant get the pc to turn back on. I even unplugged it and a light on the front is still flashing, residual power or something, I dont know cuz I dont have a battery back up or anything.

I cant get it to restart, cant turn the power off. Any ideas please?

Matthew

... remove the battery and unhook the mains

... of course you'll loose any saved data as you went into standby!

What's a labtop?

As you learned, hibernate & standby are features meant for laptops/notebooks, not desktops.
