Question about Toshiba Satellite L300D-ST3501 Notebook
What could be causing this? Have reinstalled Windows Vista Home Basic from the factory disk in an attempt to fix this.
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."

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.
