Acer ePowerManagement run as service

I have a super cheap laptop that serves the family as DVD player and web browser. The only drama I have is that the standard windows power management has been overrun by Acer’s version – known as ePower Management. Unfortunately, ePower Management does not function properly if you are not logged in as an Administrator. All the accounts on the laptop are standard users for security purposes.

This blogger has some good notes on how to fix this problem here and here – run the Acer power mgmt software as a service
