Toshiba P-15 s420 will not start without disassembly
If I leave it on AC everything is fine. If I unplug it by the next morning battery is died and it will not start until I take the top off and physically push the power button on the mother board. I put it back together it restarts fine.

Try disabling everything you can through the software, if not possible, unplug them. Then plug one in at a time and leave it overnight. If its OK in the morning, plug in the next item, and so on. Make sure battery is fully charged between each test. When the unit discharges overnight again, the last item you reconnected befroe it discharged is the one causing the voltage drain.

You need to purchase a new removable battery for your RX
The removable batts usually only last about a year (like cell phone batteries).
Although it is showing 100% charge, the battery is not storing enough power to run the ipaq
The rx series uses 2 batteries, one is the removable one u can see/access when u remove the back cover. The other batt is a small round batt which stores the basic info for your system (so you don't lose your data when u swap out the removable battery).
This small (backup) batt is similar to the cmos battery on a laptop or pc.
You cannot easily replace this, as the unit needs to be disassembled to access this batt.
If you are tech-y (and brave), the replacement button batteries are sold on ebay for $9-12
Normally, if your removable batt is bad, you could still use your unit plugged in, and could
remove from AC power without losing data. Not the case if your replaceable batt is exhausted.
When both batteries are bad, you lose everything when u remove unit from AC power.
My workaround without having to disassemble unit:
Purchase and fully charge new removable batt (They have huge capacity ones available for like $15 - better than the original !).
Load up all your programs & settings the way you like.
Perform full backup to SD card (& also on PC via active sync - to be safe)
Now the only time you should lose your data (like hard reset) is if you allow the battery
to completely drain, in which case you can restore your backup.
If you purchase 2 removable batts, you can easily swapout without losing data if you
use the usb charge cable & leave ipaq plugged in while you change battery
Unplug all external devices. Remove the battery and ac adapter. Then try again with just the ac adapter and no battery. If it works, turn it off and put the battery back in. Everything should be fine.
What your daughter did is absolutely harmless, unless your laptop is set-up not to go to standby mode then eventually hibernate when the lid is closed. In that case if it was put into a laptop bag while running it may have overheated. If that's the case it may need a motherboard or CPU, have it checked out.
Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your Toshiba Notebook. It sounds like you just need to do a hard clear on the system.
To do this unplug the system from AC Power and remove the battery. After your do this hold the power buton down for 10-15 seconds. Doing this will clear all the power from the system and reset the internal circuits.
Next put the battery back in the system and plug in he AC Power if needed and the system should boot.
If you still have trouble let me know if anything shows on the screen. Also if you have any other questions feel free to ask.
please clarify this sequence of events:
"on AC power,it seems to be working fine. But the problem occurs when I try restart it on the next morning"... was it restarted next morning on AC power or battery...which one?
