Question about Toshiba Satellite L300D-ST3501 Notebook

1 Answer

Toshiba Satellite L300D. Laptop will come out of sleep or hibernate mode without prompting and display the login box.

What could be causing this? Have reinstalled Windows Vista Home Basic from the factory disk in an attempt to fix this.

    Thanks, but this is happening both with the lid open and closed. It is annoying because the machine makes a noise when it is 'waking up' in this way. What is prompting it to wake up, that is what I do not know.

If the login box is displayed when it wakes up, that is usual. It uses a sensor to detect when the lid id open and will come out of standby when it thinks the lid is open.
Re configure the power off settings to avoid standby or sleep mode when the lid is closed.

Testimonial: "No, this happens when the lid is opened or closed. Something, I don't know what, is prompting the machine to wake up."

SOURCE: how to turn on toshiba satellite M300 laptop from hibernating mode

hi shirleygty, is that automatic hibernation (the computer hibernates by itself) or manual hibernation (by pressing the hibernate button)? If either applies to your case you might need to update the BIOS information for your computer to fix the power management issues on it. You can get it here. Just run the file, click install & choose Install From Windows. Make sure you don't have any BIOS password or any external devices connected to the computer. When the update completed successfully, your computer will automatically restart, then try hibernating this time (manual or automatic). I do recommend setting the hibernation to 1min. at the control panel > power options > change when to turn off the display. When it hibernates, pressing any keys or the power button should wake up the computer.

Hope this helps.

As you have stated that the key which  you have is for  
Vista - basic 
and the operating system is most probably vista Ultimate
hence the key is not working

what  You can  do is search the internet for a Vista Ultimate Prodct key  
if you can find it i  guess the activation will go through  easily

if this  does not work  or you want any  other assistance please do post back.

Not wake from sleep or hibenate


Usually, to wake from sleep pr hibernate, you just need to press the "Power" button of your laptop. It will not turn it off or restart the laptop if it is in the "sleep" or hibernate mode. Pressing any key usually wake it up. The default way is to press the power button as if turning it ON for the first time.

Put my toshiba laptop into sleep mode closed the lid, reopened it within seconds, and now the laptop will not come back on


Reboot the laptop, go to control panel > power options > go through the settings, especially what does the computer do when lid is closed and change the setting to "do nothing", turn off hibernation if it is on. Change other settings to now allow the computer to go to sleep, just let it run until you decide to turn it all the way off. Sleep mode and Hibernation cause more problems than do good.
