Sounds like shock damage, take out the hard drive and turn on the laptop, listen to see if the system fan is running, time it to see if this happends again, if it doesn't turn off after a certain length of time, you know it was only the hard drive that was shocked and would need to be replaced.
if it does, bad news!! let me know for further instruction


regards

Check you power save options on your control panel that would cause that to happen as the back light goes dimmer to save power on your PC.

The touch buttons are there so you can turn your laptop on into the Quickplay feature without having to load into Windows. So basically if you just want to use it for multimedia. If you was to press power button, these will just load straight into Windows. It is meant to do this. If you are saying that the screen doesnt come on when you turn the laptop on and are basically saying that the laptop doesnt boot at all and is just a blank screen, then it is very very likely you have a motherboard failure. Contact HP to see if they have still covered your laptop with warranty as this is a known issue on these laptops and some warranty had been extended

Dell D600 Battery Causes Screen to go Black


Laptop batteries normally just last for a few years, depending on usage. If your battery is almost done, it may report a 'full' status, but just have the capacity to feed your laptop for a few minutes.

You may check this by disconnecting current while your laptop is started up. If low battery capacity is the cause, the same will happen within a few minutes.

Laptops normally go in standby on low battery, to avoid data loss.

Turns off and doesn't complete restore to factory default


Actually it sounds like a heat issue. Is the bottom of the laptop getting hot? If so....

Using an air compressor (be carefull you do not need 150 psi) or a can of compressed air blow out all of the vents. Laptops have heatsinks that are so small it does not take much to plug them up.

You can also prop it up on something or get one of the fans to set it on and see if that does any good.

Hope this helps

Sounds like something to do with a power saving feature either from HP itself or from Windows. It could also be that for some reason your computer is overheating, which it than shuts itself off to protect the processor. I would try playing with your power saving features, and cleaning out the fans.
