This Aspire 5742 laptop has a problem where shortly after coming to the desktop, when booted on battery, the screen blanks and nothing will bring it back to life, requiring a forced power-down. It doesn't happen on battery
Power settings in Windows are "Never" throughout, both on battery and PSU for sleeping etc.

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
