Re: cat killed mouse

Kill the cat. Just kidding, I have two myself. They sure love laptops. Pull the battery out and unplug for an hour. Any change? The laptop might have overheated. I'm answering your question a day late. Did you get it to work?

Power button is top left corner of keyboard above the "Esc" key.
If you are trying to shutdown from Windows 8, follow these steps:

3. Click the Power button, and then click your desired action: Sleep, Shut down, or Update and restart.

Want causes a pc to turn-up on it own after it is shutdown/ omatek

make sure your power management settings are configured properly. EX: what do you want the computer to do when you press the power button , for myself I want the computer to shut down, kind of makes sense since it is the power button but if you look in your power management settings, depending on the profile selected it may just be going to sleep or hibernating . which mean the computer may seem like it is turning on but it is just waking up when the mouse get accidentally moved or the cat steps on the keyboard. Ofcourse your power button could be malfunctioning but I doubt that because if it was it would be shutting down randomly as well ?

Mouse didn't detected

Touch pad usb or wireless mouse ?
Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs. Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time. Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard. Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse. This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function. Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button. Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen. Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal. Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter." Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab. Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section. Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box. Press the space bar to remove the check mark. Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button. Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box. Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu." Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart." Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function. Open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section. Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse. Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse. Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal. Check to see if the mouse is working properly. Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu." Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel." Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it. Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box. Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver." Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically. Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

How can I wake my computer from sleep or hibernation?

On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop. Check the documentation that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.

My toshiba laptop cursor doesnot move when i touch the tray pad


I had the same problem after my fat cat sat on my keyboard. This is how I fixed it. At the top of the keyboard there is a F9 key. If you look closely at this key, it also has two pictures of the mouse pad. This key is a toggle that turns the mouse pad on and off. Down near the lower left corner of the keyboard is a key marked FN. Hold down the FN key and press the F9 key. That will turn the mouse pad back on.

Trying to change the power management option in the bios

control panel >power options has all the settings to change what mode the computer goes into when you close the lid eg.sleep hiberante etc. so set that up for starters. when you close the lid on some laptops they go into hibernation which can be difficult to come out of. I find it best to put the computer in sleep mode when i go for a break, then it only takes one push of the button to continue where i left off
you can extend or turn off stanby or have it go into sleep mode automatically in the power option setting, and while in control panel check wireless keyboard has full control. The click of the mouse should reactivate it from standyby so try sleep for now.
I hope this knowledge helps you
good luck
