When I went to shut it down it had a few programs to shut down. I waited a few minutes then closed the lid down. It is now flashing on the first light symbol on the corner and when you open it up it turns...

Sounds like it is stuck in hibernate mode. Hold the power button down for 5 seconds and try to start it again. If it doesn't start remove the battery, unplug the laptop, hold the power button down for 60 seconds. Now plug in the power supply but leave the battery out. Turn it on. It should start now and you can re-insert the battery.

I cannot turn off the computer

Chances are, there's a program running in the background that won't let it shut down. Try closing all your programs and shutting it down. If that doesn't work, you can hold the power button down until it shuts down, or possibly remove the battery. If this problem continues occuring, try running a virus sweep and seeing if it catches anything on your system. For a good free online virus sweep, use:
Hope this helps!

Remove the battery and leave off for about 1 minute. Put the battery back in place and press the power button to turn the unit on. immediately after you see system light come on, press and hold the power button and see if it shuts off after a few seconds. If not, then its likely your motherboard is defective.

I am unable to unhibernate

Power down the computer and power back up. Lets just shut hibernation can always just have the computer is much better on the system anyway.

Shutting Down Hibernation

Go to the control panel > Power Options > Hibernation tab > uncheck hibernate…this way you save a lot of disc space and don’t have to go through all the intermittent hibernation problems that occur. After you uncheck hibernation, you can go to the other power options and change how the computer reacts to the lid being closed, when it sleeps and for how long before sleep kicks in. Make sure to change the setting for what happens when lid closes to “do nothing” this will keep the laptop alive even though you close the lid to move it, etc.

Power management lets you reduce your Notebook power consumption. Your Notebook has two power management modes:
  • Hibernation is an energy-saving feature and safeguard that saves information to the hard drive, then turns off your Notebook. When you resume from Hibernation, your information returns to the screen where you were previously working. Your Notebook hibernates when the Power button is pressed, when the battery has little power left, or when your Notebook (operating on battery power) is in Sleep mode for more than one hour.
  • Sleep, also called Standby, is an energy-saving feature that reduces power to system components that are not being used. When Sleep is initiated, your information is saved in Random Access Memory (RAM), and the screen is cleared. Your Notebook is still on, but the display is blank. When you resume from Suspend, your information returns to the screen where you were previously working.
Automatically put your notebook into hibernation Windows can automatically put your computer into Hibernate mode after a specified period of inactivity. Or Windows can detect when your batteries are running low, and then automatically put your computer in Hibernate mode to save your work before the battery fails. NOTE: Using Power Options in Control Panel, you can adjust any power management option that your notebook's unique hardware configuration supports. Because these options may vary widely from computer to computer, the options described may differ from what you see. Power Options automatically detects what is available on your computer and shows you only the options that you can control. To automatically put your computer into hibernation:
  1. In Category view, click Start , click Control Panel , click Performance and Maintenance , and then click Power Options . In Classic view, click Start , click Control Panel , and then click the Power Options icon.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, select the Enable hibernate support check box, and then click Apply . Figure 1: Enable hibernation check box c00035872.gif
  3. Click the Power Schemes tab, and then select a time period in System hibernates. Your computer hibernates after it has been idle for the specified amount of time.
Manually put your notebook into hibernation This feature is available only on notebooks with the Windows XP operating system installed.
  1. In Category view, click Start , click Control Panel , click Performance and Maintenance , and then click Power Options . In Classic view, click Start , click Control Panel , and then click the Power Options icon.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box. NOTE: If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start , and then click Turn Off Computer . In the Turn off computer dialog box, hold down the Shift key. The Stand By button will change to Hibernate. Click Hibernate .

Toshiba Satellite: A135-S4427 / Won't shut down

by pressing the power button in, the computer has gone into standby or hibernate mode.
Heres what you Do:- press and hold the power button for between 10 to 20 seconds.
that should bring it out of hibernation.
if that does,nt work. remove the main battery.
when you,ve resolved the problem, run a disk-scan via your windows operating system.

Screen went black

When you close the lid, there is a small pin that engages the case and flips a switch to tell the laptop the case has been closed. The monitor will ALWAYS turn off then, because otherwise, the heat build up would burn the screen! Do not try to defeat this, replacing an LCD screen is usually more expensive than the value of the laptop!

Now, that all being said (and please remember), the situation you have now is (hopefully) just that the laptop tried/succeeded in going into ACPI "suspend" or "hibernate" mode.

1. Remove all cables and 10/100. Remove all USB devices. Just leave the PSU (AC power supply) connected.

2. Press the power button firmly, JUST once. Wait. And I mean WAIT, because some laptops can take 2 minutes or more to come out of suspend/hibernate, if they were very busy at the time it was shut down.

3. If the LCD screen lights up. you are done. But if it does not light up now, then proceed to step 4.

4. Press and HOLD the power button down for 10 seconds. This forces the laptop to shut down completely, even from suspend/hibernation. Some unsaved files may be lost, but tghe laptop goes cold, so you can start ACPI over again.

5. After a few minutes, press the power button again, firmly, just ONCE and for 1 second max. Laptop should start up OK.

6. Once it starts up, go to START MENU/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL/POWER SETTINGS and search for the "hibernation" tab. Turn hibernation OFF. your laptop obviously has some problems or lack of responsiveness with hibernation (most do). Use suspend, instead. It is much safer,. faster, and still does a good job of saving HDD and LCD wear. Please let me know how this goes for you, there are other more detailed problems that may be involved here, but I suspect this is most likely.
