Toshiba laptop won't wake up from stand by or hibernate

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.

    Oh my God! Thank you so much for posting this answer. I was having the same problem just a moment ago with my Toshiba Satellite also. I put it into hybernate with about 5 hours of my business's work I forgot to save. I was heading out and bringing the laptop with me. I realized that I should save just in case and when I tried to wake it nothing happened! Then I read this solution of using a light on the camera. As soon as I put my phone up to the camera it woke up right away. Thanks so much! I was having a panic attack over potentially losing my work.

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.

Toshiba satellite laptop won't wake up from hibernation even after holding power botton down?!


If pressing down and holding the restart/start button doesn't wake it up you might try Control + ALT + DELETE keys (together) - that will reboot it though. And if that won't work then you might have to pull the battery to reset it.

It seems that some laptops have a problem with vista and sleep mode, in particular, and sometimes hibernate too. You can try going under POWER OPTIONS under Control Panel and setting everything back to default, saving it, then resetting it again. Also it's best to avoid using sleep mode if possible to avoid problems.

If the problem developed after a recent install or updating you may need to go to an older store point to fix the problem. Personally, I just avoid using these settings as much as possible and use regular shut down and a screen saver for times when I need to step away from laptop for short periods of time.

My averatec lap top os stuck in sleep mode


Hi. I suggest you try pressing the power button to wake it up or you could also try power draining it and turting it on. To powerdrain your computer you must remove first the battery and unplug the ac adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, after that you must place back the battery and plugin the ac adapter then turn on your computer. Hope This Helps

Not wake from sleep or hibenate


Usually, to wake from sleep pr hibernate, you just need to press the "Power" button of your laptop. It will not turn it off or restart the laptop if it is in the "sleep" or hibernate mode. Pressing any key usually wake it up. The default way is to press the power button as if turning it ON for the first time.

How to turn on toshiba satellite M300 laptop from hibernating mode


hi shirleygty, is that automatic hibernation (the computer hibernates by itself) or manual hibernation (by pressing the hibernate button)? If either applies to your case you might need to update the BIOS information for your computer to fix the power management issues on it. You can get it here. Just run the file, click install & choose Install From Windows. Make sure you don't have any BIOS password or any external devices connected to the computer. When the update completed successfully, your computer will automatically restart, then try hibernating this time (manual or automatic). I do recommend setting the hibernation to 1min. at the control panel > power options > change when to turn off the display. When it hibernates, pressing any keys or the power button should wake up the computer.

Hope this helps.

Cant wake up my sony laptop


Hold the power button down until the machine shuts off, then reboot. Several laptops have this issue (standby either works or it doesn't), and I've never been able to resolve the issue on the ones that don't work properly, in the future set the machine so that it never goes into standby.
