Check in the power options area of your operating system, and switch off hibernate and switch off sleep, this should prevent the machine powering down.

I have winows vista and it takes a few minutes for my pc to shut down and startup how can i get it to shut down and start up faster


Forget it, it takes what it takes. There is an idea of an external drive, that can be rigged that helps, but It is a waste of resoruces.
Consider using sleep mode, for faster cycling and only shutdown when you actually need to. If this is a laptop, consider hibernate. Both sleep and hibernate focus on faster start ups, but on laptop, if you use sleep and run out of battery, you can loose data that you were working on. ALWAY save and backup.

How to remove toshiba a200 model the password after power on?


Press the appropriate key to enter BIOS setup.
Enter the current password, to allow you to access BIOS setup.
Then, set a new password.

The password exists to prevent a thief in possession of your laptop from using the stolen computer.

Find your original bill-of-sale, and telephone Toshiba, and they will help the registered owner in resetting the password.

When I put the computer to "sleep" it decides to come back on by itself. This happens frequently, but not all the time. What could be causing it to do this? Also, if I shut the computer down,...


Sleep on Vista is a combination of Standby and Hibernate. First it will go into Standby and then later if a laptop it will go into Hibernate. Any movement of mouse or keyboard may cause it to wake up.
Some computers will wake on Lan. If you have ethernet connected this may be the cause. You can turn this off by using Device Manager - Hardware - Select ethernet adapter - driver - Advanced - look for Wake on Lan and Pattern Matching and disable this.
ALso check your BIOS settings and disable all Wake on XXX settings.

When you start your laptop, press F8. You will get a menu (Normal boot, Reboot...). Choose Last good known configuration (something like that).

Using Hibernate uses lots of disk space, be sure you got atleast 20GB of free disk space on your hardisk when using Hibernate, also use surface disk checking software to see if you got badsector on your disk.

Sometimes when I turn my laptop on, I hear the computer winding up then it stops. The screen remains blank. Sometimes I have to restart the computer 4 or 5 times before it comes on. And sometimes when it...


Yes, WinXP's relationship with your laptop's drivers has gone sour, like Pet Sematary. Bury your laptop...no wait, just reload the laptop's drivers (Dell or Toshiba or whatever) so hibernate works correctly...or un-fiddle with any hibernate/sleep/low-power utilities you use. Alternately consider that your laptop's reading signals from the battery or a cooling fan; telling XP or the BIOS that component is not in tolerable condition, and thus shutting down.

Have your feet rolfed while you fix that situation up.
