Question about Toshiba Satellite M100 Notebook
My Toshiba Satellite M100 laptop won't wake up from stand-by or hibernate. When I press the button to wake it up the LEDs light up and the fans turn on but the screen stays black. Eventually I have to shut it down using the power button and restart it. When it starts up again it tells me that Windows has recovered from a serious error. I am running XP.
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.

Actually your laptop do wake up. But the problem here is that the back light of your screen won't light up after it is wake up or resumed from hibernation. To confirm this try directing a torch light when this occurs. If the screen is on without the back light, you could see the contents displayed(most probably your logon screen).
To correct this, try reinstalling your display drivers, hotkey drivers and power management utilities.

I just fixed my laptop from that problem. I went to the system setup when you restart your computer, in my laptop i press esc and then F1, every computer is different though. In the setup page, there is an option for system restart and my setting was "boot". I changed it to "resume" and saved my changes and restart it my computer. Now, when I am working on the internet, word, etc. I close my laptop come back later, open it and it takes me back to what I was doing. Hopefully this helps you.

Well you see...seomtimes the computer doesnt resume from hibernation because hernation gets corrupted...or standby file gets corrupted... so the only way to resume it is by removing the battery...and putting it back on and restarting the computer...However do it only once..... and then try to set your hibernation in place.
