Even though the power button is pressed, the notebook does not come one. I have taken it to Best Buy to have them look at it. It came on with no problem, so I took it home. It has not come on ever since. What can I do?

I had the same thing with an MSI notebook. This is most likely a hardware issue and can only be fixed permanently by replacing the motherboard. For me one trick worked though... when turning it on, instead of pressing once, press the power button rapidly multiple times. I've been using my notebook like this for half a year now, its quite tricky, doesn't always work, but cheaper than a new mobo.
Yes, this is a problem with the Toshiba laptop drivers not reloading correctly from a suspended state.
right click the battery icon on the lower right toolbar and select 'power options'
if you are in 'power saver' mode or sometimes even in 'balanced' mode, the system will throttle back enough memory to keep basic functions from preforming properly.
you can go to the advanced options and change how long it will take for the system to sleep, hibernate, what happens when you close the lid and many more.
I recommend 15 mins digging through and reading these settings to become familiar with what they do.
you never know when they will make a difference :D
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!
Hi there as per your information there is a chance of battery damaged. So i suggest you use your battery in others laotop for confirmation. If your found the same problem then buy a new battery . Thanks & waiting for your feedback.
Occasionally, Windows or the notebook might stop responding, so that you cannot turn the notebook off. If this happens, try the following in the order listed. Press the power button to restart. • If possible, shut down Windows: press ctrl+alt+del, and then select Shut Down > Restart. If the system will not allow a software shutdown, press and hold down the power button until the display shuts down (about 4 seconds) and then release the power button. Press the power button again to restart. • Use a ballpoint pen or a straightened paper clip to press the reset button on the bottom of the notebook.
In other words: You will not loose any saved data if you reboot your laptop this way. All unstored information (open documents etc.) might be lost though.
Check that your notebook power settings are correct, it may be that when you press off or shutdown it's actually going into hibernation or standby, this is only correct when you close the lid without shutting down through Windows.
As for Windows Media Player, you cannot remove it as it's a Windows component, you can only dissable it through Add/Remove programmes>Add/Remove Windows Components.
