Try the following :

Rightclick any where on the desktop propperties and you will find an energy-/power saving tab, play around with the settings there. Acer does have some specific power settings but than you need to give me the type number

try right clicking on a blank spot of your desktop, click properties, screensaver, power, advanced. You should be able to change what the power button does from there.
