Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC
I have a Toshiba Satellite P205 with Windows Vista. While I am using the computer, it appears to go into sleep mode, but I cannot turn it back on. The screen goes blank, but it's still lit up so it's not completely black. The hard drive light is not blinking so I assume the computer is no longer running but I am not certain. I just bought the laptop and thought it must be a lemon so I exchanged it for another and the new one is doing the same thing. It is literally shutting down while I am using it so it can't actually be going into sleep mode and I changed sleep mode settings to not be activated for 45 minutes. Any thoughts?
To my knowledge it could be hibernate mode for laptops to save battery life when not plugged into the wall, try pressing the power button, my Compaq did that too. Also don't hold down the power button as after 5 seconds it just shuts off the laptop, unless you wanna do that.

How do you fix/download the bios update if it keeps going into sleep mode?

I found that my laptop was over heating and going into sleep mode. I purchased a heat dispersion pad and that seems to have resolved the issue.
