OpenControl Panel, Power settings, Advanced Power settings, change SLEEP to Never, Hibernate to never. Shut down and unplug, if you use mostly on AC, remove battery, your laptop when not in use. It will last longer, if there is a power surge not be damaged, and a reboot every day resets the computer.
Windows needs to be shut down properly to keep it stable, if hibernate mode is being used it eventually corrupt windows causing all kinds of symptoms, I recommend you make a backup recovery disc, and disable the hibernate feature to prevent complete window failure.
Definition: Hibernate is another option for powering down
your laptop. When you use Hibernate all data will be saved to the hard
drive in a compressed form. Once you start up from Hibernate mode you
will be able to work with the applications and documents you left open
before putting the laptop into Hibernate.
Hibernate is best used to conserve laptop battery power when you will be
away from the laptop for more than a few minutes. You can put your
laptop into Hibernate overnight or when you will be away from it for a
Examples: Rather than shutting down my
laptop each night, I use Hibernate to help conserve battery power and
enable me to access my open files quicker in the morning.
If you are not going to use your computer for a few hours, it is a good idea to put it to sleep (also known as
mode) to save power. If you are not going to use the computer for more
than a day, it is usually best to turn it off.

Hi, just thought I'd let you know that when I got my Toshiba Equium 200-1V0 it was supplied with the User's Manual A210 Series. The manual is just basic and does not go into full depth of how to clean out heat sink etc. The problem you described regarding the shutting down is most probably that the heat sink is clogged up with dust and needs to be cleaned. Toshiba has a lot of laptops (different models) with this problem. I had the same problem with Toshiba A200-1V0 and have now got the same problem with the Toshiba A300D-20R which is only 6 months old! On the A200-1V0 I managed to hoover the bottom of the laptop where the fan is and it worked fine, but with the A300D-20R it has not worked, but fortunately it's still under guarantee so I will be sending it back to Toshiba to do it. Here is a link to download the Manuals. You will find the Manual for A200-1V0. Hope this helps. http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_manuals.jsp?service=UK
You probably think it is going into hibernation mode when really your getting the black and blue screen(very dark blue) This is a result of your windows failing. Your windows has been corrupted and the fix is to purchase a new windows xp,7,or vista. If you purchased it from the store they should have you on warranty, But if it bootlegged you may have to purchase a new one.
Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks
First off, Windows just didn't like the way the computer shut off, I would just restart normally and see what happens. Next when it boots up and you get into windows, Go to the control panel > Power Options > go to the hibernation tab and make sure hibernation is unchecked. Next go the setting that reads "shutting the lid". You want to open this setting with a drop down list and pick "Do Nothing", this will keep the laptop from entering standby mode just for shutting the lid. Laptops do not like hibernation or standby modes....windows hates it and will give you all kinds of problems if you continue to use it.
This doesn't sound like a hibernation problem, it sounds to be much deep, motherboard deeper, but let's rule out the hibernation. Unplug the laptop, take out the battery, this will completely shut the machine down. Then put every thing back and restart. If it starts, then disable the hibernation mode in the display properties, screen saver tab, under the button that reads power. If it doesn't start, then the problem is with the motherboard or one of it's components. Take it in for a professional diagnostic, they will be able to tell you exactly where the problem is and if it's a replaceable component.
my toshiba laptop went into sleep hibernation mode,& all i could get was the cursor on screen but nothing else, omg could not get it out of this mode for about 5-10 minutes,so i held the on/off button down for 10 seconds until it definately switched off,then was able to be reboot the laptop,but took some time doing this......
