Satellite A300-1HP is not in sleep mode after 30 minutes inactivity

Satellite A300 1HP is not in sleep mode after 30 minutes inactivity.
Windows settings are OK (I'm an experienced user).
He goes to sleep, if I do it manually (by pressing the power button) - but not after inactivity,

Any idea?



Hello, Norbert

Maybe you should check the settings of Vista power again. I have too many A300 and everything works fine.
I tested it with all three power plans. Have you done the same?

Usually, I use the BALANCED power plan and enter mode standby 20 minutes correctly.

  • Satellite P30 Pro: Will not properly sleep mode


    I do not normally use the standby feature, but it hibernates.
    Recently, I started using it, so I keep the supply charge of the power supply of the wireless mouse.
    Unfortunately, he's not exactly going in standby mode it used to - I close the lid and I can hear the fan turns off after a few seconds (about 20) standby red LED flashes and then they come back after 5/10 seconds and stays on.

    The standby light goes green on and in practice, it is, switches the screen off the power and the ADSL connection - that's all.
    I did close the cover of the last night and found this morning with 3 green LEDs on the fans running!

    Any help?
    Please note that the settings are correct - I just checked and it is set to go into sleep mode by closing the lid.

    Thank you

    PS: Lately, I have day a few drivers from the Web from Toshiba site (can't remember which)


    If I understand you right, the laptop is on standby and it s is always connected to the local network.

    Well, maybe there is a wake-up on LAN enabled mode who wakes the machine automatically to standby mode.

    Try to access the BIOS and LAN / WLan, settings on the card and if necessary to disable this option.

    1. what happens when you restart the computer from sleep? It back to windows, such as the release of sleep or does go through the normal boot process?

    2 have you done any recent software or the hardware changes on your computer?

    3. don't you face the problem only by playing games?

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to run a full scan of your computer and check.

    Microsoft Security Essentials

    Note: If infections are detected during the scan, it is possible that infected files would be deleted.

    Method 2:

    I also suggest you to start your computer in a clean boot state, and check if all third-party software could be the cause. Clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or Windows 7

    Note: Don't forget to return the computer to normal after completing the troubleshooting by following the steps described in step 7.

    Method 3:

    I also suggest that you perform a clean boot material to check if the problem is caused by any device.

    Follow these steps to perform a clean boot material:

    a. disconnect all external devices.

    b. start the computer in safe mode.

    Start your computer in safe mode

    c. click 'Start', type 'DEVMGMT.» SMC"in the search text box and press ENTER."

    d. expand "graphics cards".

    e. right click on your graphics card, select "Properties"

    f. click the "driver" tab, click on disable (disable the selected device). Click OK

    g. use the same method to disable other devices such as: map of the sound card, Modem, network, CD - R drive. Note Some devices not available must be disabled.

    h. restart the computer.

    After you turn off the devices, start in normal mode and try to activate the devices one by one and check which device is causing the problem.

  • HP pavilion/dm4 goes into sleep mode after 1 minute - it's a Cannonball!

    I checked my control panel settings, then advanced settings (for the notification icons - which does not apply to this problem).

    What I put, I'm working at my computer and screen will still sleep a minute after, if I'm not touching the keyboard.

    What I don't get. I need at least 5 minutes or longer before it should go to sleep. My office computer goes to sleep after I do it.

    Thank you.


    I assume you mean that you have checked your Power Options settings in the control panel?

    Have you tried clicking on a blank spot on the desktop screen and selecting Customize? From there look "Screen saver" settings at the bottom. It can be set to "empty" with a time of 1 minute.

  • Satellite A300 - 1HP Vista x 64 drivers

    Your Satellite A300 belongs to the series of PSAJ4E and the Toshiba site for this model are not 64-bit drivers available.

    I think you must search on external Web sites for the drivers and try to download and install the VAP from another model of laptop.

    As far as I know the sound driver and modem, you can get on this site:

  • Satellite A300 - 1HP Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 'Penryn' question


    I have some problems with the T8100 CPU in my notebook. The energy saving features, especially Speedstep, does not work properly under Windows Vista and XP. If I use High Performance in Vista Power Options, the processor switches between 1.25 GHz and 2.1 GHz.

    The minimum and maximum processor state is set to 100%. I also installed XP and Toshiba Power Saver, the automatic CPU processing speed does not work it and this tool needs to be updated! I hope that these problems will be fixed soon!

    Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology require a compatible BIOS, a compatible operating system and a compatible Intel processor.
    Satellite A300-1HP supports all of these features.

    But I wonder how did you test the CPU performance and why you're suggesting that this feature does not work properly? ?:|

    To my knowledge the Core 2 Duo CPU run * always * better performance.
    If the performance of the processor are not necessary the CPU will then lower to save energy and reduce heat dissipation.

    So I don't really see any problems with the Intel Speedstep technology!

    By the way; I noticed that the new BIOS updates are rented on the Toshiba page. Try to update the BIOS.

    PS. would it not under warranty

    > I reinstalled the driver and I restored my computer
    This means that you have used the Toshiba Recovery disk?
    Have you created a Toshiba recovery disc at the beginning?

    I think that if you didn't use the recovery disc, then the question refers to the missing part of the driver or software

  • My laptop goes into power saving mode after one minute. Someone knows why?

    It's just started happening yesterday. I use a Toshiba laptop and out of nowhere, my PC goes in power saving mode after one minute when ALL my settings for this mode is 30 minutes. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Hi MattLipkint,

    1. Did you the latest changes on the computer?
    2. When was the last time it was working fine?
    3. You have security software installed on the computer?

    Method 1

    It is possible that some third-party programs installed on the computer is causing the problem.

    I suggest that you put the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See section to learn more about how to clean boot.

    How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" State

    Reset the computer to start as usual

    When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

    (a) click Start, type msconfig in the search box and press ENTER.

    (b) If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password or click on continue.

    (c) under the general tab, click the Normal startup option, and then click OK.

    (d) when you are prompted to restart the computer, click on restart.

    Method 2

    If the previous step fails then I would suggest that you update the display adapter drivers, basic input/output system (BIOS) and motherboard chipset drivers.

    Important: Change (CMOS) BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

    After several minutes, that it's going to sleep again and then again are put on...
    Before there was not such a problem!

    What is the problem with my satellite?

  • Apple TV Airplay of 4 works is not in Sleep Mode

    Hi all

    I have a problem with my new ATV4 and the use of airtime. If I turn on the ATV with the included remote control, I have no problem using airtime and everything works as it should. However, if I put my ATV in standby mode after a few minutes the Airplay icon will disappear and I am not able to start it by sending the contents of airtime to it (btw the remote for iOS devices app is also not able to connect in standby mode and run it). Now, I've already owned an ATV2 and with this device I've ever had any of the problems noted above. I tried many things such as giving the ATV a fixed IP address, deactivation and reactivation Airplay, restart and finally completely restore the device. After that nothing helps I contacted Apple for support and after several calls which included to restore the device again once they are now trying to tell me that my problem is
    not a problem at all, but it is intentioned behavior of the device. Please can someone of you confirm that you are able to connect to your ATV4 also during the night before and wake up, it? With this information, I would then contact support again.

    I already thank you in advance and best regards


    Yes, I am able to launch an event Apple AirPlay TV 4 sleeping. In my particular case, I have a mixed network (ethernet and wifi) between the two devices.
