Question about Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5940 Notebook
OK so it isn't something to do with power.
Looked at logically it's got to be something the tosh is looking for on the work server. k24674's suggestion is along this line, but if that hasn't solved it, could it be some other app is the culprit. If Windows Explorer is open it could be trying to access a network drive or something similar and hogging the processor?
Once you have opened your Word document try closing Explorer (or open the document directly from Word) and see if that helps. If it does then delete all surplus network drives and connections from Explorer when away from the office if you must use it. If it doesn't then before the tosh shuts down check the processor table to see if any other app is hogging it eg virus checker.

If Word or the Office suite is fully installed on the computer and not made accessible through the network server there should not be any significant drop in speed (if used with AC power)
If you are on travel and are using the battery then the Toshiba Power Saver enters in action to reduce power consumption, to extend battery life.
If the Office applications reside on the work server and you have to remotely connect, then the speed of execution depends on the connection. If that is the case, I suggest you get a USB key and install on it the portable apps (www.portableApps.com). In the PortableApps suite you have OpenOffice.org (similar to Office). You can use it to type your documents and save them to Word format. When you return to the office, open documents in Word and do some minimal reformatting.
Hope it helps.
