Question about PC Laptops
Hi, I just purchased this computer and now I am experiencing the following problems:
1) Computer will not power off or go into sleep or hibernate mode. It always restarts.
2) "Tray" icons are showing that my internet connection is not connected (but it is) and that my antivirus software is not working and my Spyware icon is missing altogether.
As I said, I just got this thing - so please help keep me from throwing it against the wall! Thanks.
I had the same problem with Toshiba Pro with XP Pro.
Discovered that, even though Wake Up on LAN option is disabled in BIOS, computer wakes up only when LAN cable is connected. So it was LAN wake up call.
Network Connections, right click Local Area Connection icon, Properties, Configure (Adapter on General Tab), Advanced...
find the property that says 'Wake from Shutdown' or similar and set it to Off.
I seems like Adapter Property overrides BIOS setting through APM. One can notice how after shutting down, standby or hibernate LAN connector LED lights are now off and not blinking on traffic like before.
Does it wotk on Vista, I don't know.
