Question about Computers & Internet
I just got a Toshiba laptop for school, my 1st Windows laptop in some time. And I notice when going for example from one class to another or other situations, I am not able to get it to wake when opening the lid. I have had it happen randomly multiple times in the last few weeks using Hibernate or sleep. On my last occurance before I took the battery out and replaced it to resolve the issue I was able to get it to power back up by connecting the AC adapter. Could programs being open when I close the lid cause this issue or disconnecting and connecting to wifi?. Also do you think using the power button to put it to sleep or in hibernate might work better? And finally, what is most likely causing this? This is murder on my OCD.
Don't be lazy, use the Shut Down command and then you will know your files have been closed properly and disconnecting the battery or power failure will not kill your data.

SOURCE: waking up after going to sleep
I have had similar problem. I found, by trial and error, that using Windows hibernate mode actually works every time! Windows makes a "System screen shot" and stores it on hard drive and then powers off. Just be aware that you must ensure enough hard drive space for this. I am using this mode every day now.

I had the same problem on my Toshiba Satellite U305, struggling with it for the past 4 months and having to use Shutdown each time I was done using it. Very frustrating! Toshiba worked with me several weeks, telling me to re-install Vista and all the fixes, which took a lot of work backing up etc and this did not fix the problem. Today they finaly told me to try entering this special command and it fixed my problem. Maybe it will fix yours too.
Create a shortcut on the desktop and to make the shortcut, right click on the desktop, choose Create Shortcut, enter CMD.EXE where it asks you to "Enter the location of the item". This will create an icon on the desktop that looks like a mini-command prompt. Then on the desktop, RIGHT click on the CMD.EXE shortcut/icon you have created and select "Run as administrator". This will open a command prompt window. Here in the black-box with white letter window, enter the command "powercfg -h on" (without the quotes). Reboot and see if the problem is resolved. This fixed my Toshiba Satellite that had this problem.

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.
