In Windows XP you can disable hibernation by doing the following:
1. Open Power Options in Control Panel
2. Select the Hibernate tab
3. Clear the checkbox for enabling hibernation
This doesn't work in Vista however because the GUI for Power Options has changed and doesn't offer the ability to disable hibernation. But you can disable hiberation in Vista from the command line if you use admin privileges. Here's how:
1. Press the WINDOWS key and type cmd into the Start Search box but *don't* press ENTER
2. Right-click on cmd in the Programs list and select Run As Administrator
3. Click Continue when the UAC prompt appears
4. Type powercfg -h off and press ENTER

IF this does not help write back.

I have a satellite A215 - s5818 It started with it just shutting down all of a sudden . reboot and it may work for a while and it would shut down again . Now I can hear it power up but no display on...


his is sound as though your power adapter is not charging your laptop battery and the battery is trying to preserve what power it has left to power up the screen as you demand but there is no voltage to do so.
1. you will need another power supply adapter from what you have describe here and or a battery replacement.
if you can possibly get an equivalent power adapter for your unit and connect it to see if you get power up then you need to replace the power adapter.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

Satellite A-215 goes to black screen. Has always


Sometimes my laptop does this as well. It seems to happen more and more when it is warm. You might try putting something underneath it and ensure it is getting enough air flow. Once I started doing this, mine has been doing it less and less. Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Ben

My Toshiba A215-S5818 Shows up enter password


Hello,

The problem can be due to incorrect power on password prompt. This problem is noticed with some older BIOS versions. The system is looking for a non-existing power-on password.

The only solution for this is to send the system back to Toshiba. They will repair this problem free of cost.
