Satellite A300 goes into sleep mode - it starts again

My Toshiba Satellite A300 simply refuses to sleep - sleep (bright yellow lights up and the screen is blank) and after about 10 seconds, all the lights come back and the fan starts going.

This occurs when the laptop is plugged in and running on battery power.
I read on many problems of sleep with the satellite series and the general Council only seems to have picked up is to install all the updates which is what I did and the problem persists!

I would be very grateful if someone could help!



Please check if your BIOS is up to date.
If you use an older version of BIOS then update the BIOS and check if your computer starts in mode 'sleep' correctly.

Good bye

  • Satellite L50-B-1HU randomly goes into sleep mode

    Randomly, my laptop (Satellite L50-B-1HU) goes into sleep mode.
    It happened at least 10 times in the last two weeks.

    Once by chance, he goes to sleep he requires the power button to turn, but the power button should be 1 to 3 times, as it can to sleep just after pressing the power button.

    Its happen even if the pad is in use. In windows power options, I turned also to disable the mode 'sleep'.

    The laptop itself has been used for two weeks (which has passed since the first use)

    Any advice?
    Thank you

    Like Notepad running in the power of the battery or also using the power adapter plugged?
    From my point of view of a few notebook could enter the mode "sleep" due to low battery.

    Also some 3rd party application preinstalled on the laptop could set the camera in mode "Eve".
    Guess what: try to start the laptop is safe mode and let it run for a longer period of time. It would be interesting to know if the laptop would be access to the sleep mode using safe mode.

    You can also use the command "powercfg. Windows 8 PowerCfg has a useful switch called - energy.
    This technique is valuable to solve sleep problems.
    Start the console with the command: cmd.
    In the console type: powercfg-ENERGY

    Now it takes 60 seconds and will create an HTML file that you can open in your web browser to get the full report of energy. Now quite sure if the information could be useful, but it might be interesting what details this report would provide.

  • 64 bit Vista crashes when the system goes into Sleep Mode. Have cold start. Simultaneous began with the June 8 patches.

    This problem started a week ago, say at the time of the June 8 fix release. I think the relevant in case the log message is 'detected bad event COM + a system code back during internal processing. HRESULT is C 8007043 line 45 of d:\longhorn\com\Complus\src\events\tier1\eventssystemobj.epp. Error report, please contact Ms Product Support Services. "However, when I contacted MS, they would not help without paying the fees because it was an OEM installation. The system remains upward after the stabilization of the system going on in SafeMode after cold start, close and then switch to normal mode. However, once launched, it seem (ed) as the hard drive light was permanently. I did a restore to June 8, most early I could continue.  The hard drive worked without interruption after that.  I did a forced sleep and restart and the system froze again. With this in mind, I wonder if .NET patches that were released were running somehow at the time of sleep and that he could not recover.  OR, during sleep, the system was made of updates and the system has been disabled, corrupting the updates.  I looked at the Windows Update settings and it has been set to automatically install updates.  It is quite possible that the user did not know and did not recognize there are pending updates.  Maybe updates were not correctly packed in order to manage a system from going into Sleep Mode, while they were installing. In any case, any who would provide help on how to identify the problem and fix it.  There may be registry entries need to be corrected?

    Microsoft support has provided a solution.  Here is the procedure:
    We can run reset Windows Update Tool and system update tool to detect incorrect manifests, files or data from the registry. Please follow the steps below.
    Step 1: Launch the tool to reset Windows Update and the update of the system tool
    1 download and run reset Windows Update Tool from the link below:

    2 download and run the update tool of the system from the link below depending on the Type of system:
    Update for Windows Vista 32-bit system tool
    Update for Windows Vista 64-bit system tool
    Note: It may take an hour or more time to detect and replace the erroneous data, please be patient. When it is finished, restart the computer and reinstall Windows Vista SP2.
    If Windows Vista SP2 can not always be installed, I suggest to download the stand-alone Installer and install it in clean boot Mode.
    Step 2: Download the installer of Windows Vista SP2 Standalone
    1 download the installer of Windows Vista SP2 Standalone from the link below depending on the Type of system:
    Windows Vista Service Pack 2 - version independent ALL languages for Windows Vista 32 bit (KB948465) (475,5 MB)

    Note: Click 'Continue' if the "User Account Control" window appears.
    2. click on 'Services', check "Hide all Microsoft Services" and click on 'Disable All' (if it's not gray).
    3. click on 'Start', click 'Disable all', click 'OK' and restart the computer.
    Note: Disable temporarily the startup group only prevents the start up programs from loading at startup. This should not affect the system or other programs. We can manually run these programs later.
    4. double-click the downloaded standalone installer and follow the instructions to install Windows Vista SP2.
    To restore the computer to a Normal startup, repeat step 1 above. Then click "Normal startup" in the general tab, click on "OK" and restart the computer.
    If there are any questions or concerns, feel free to let me know. It is my pleasure to be useful.

    The cause was not determined, but evidence tends to a disturbance in the download or installation process, with one of the errors in the event log is an error in checksum on one of the modules. With a large file, 745 meg, the mean time to failure on a LAN network is probably shorter than the download time.  The installation process was probably longer than the time that the system has increased...  Corrective actions for Microsoft could include more small download / install, not allowing an automatic installation for automatic download over a certain size, or deal with the best controls during installation to intercept the checksum error.  Duane G.

  • Satellite Pro C660 goes into sleep mode, even if I use Internet Explorer

    When you use Internet Explore particularly in webmail or remote access, the computer does not recognize typing and goes into sleep mode.

    Before talking about possible fix or workaround solutions, could you please give some info on your laptop model and the system?
    Have you tested the laptop with the factory and preinstalled Toshiba system parameters?

  • Vista goes into sleep mode automatically just after the restart

    The following problem was irregular. Sometimes, other times not. I'm totally frustrated as to why it is happening and I would like to solve this problem, now and forever.

    Yes, first facts: I have an Asus G71Gx laptop game with Nvidia Geforce GTX 260 M. 6 GB of memory, Windows Vista 64-bit. Do not think that other information is necessary, unless I'm mistaken.

    The problem: well, just after the start/start my laptop goes into sleep mode. As in, Windows starts fine and I see my desktop with all the shortcut icons and the background, and then all of a sudden the screen goes black (with two Dim lights blue on the screen - fellow Asus G71Gx users will know it), and the power led button flashes slowly in and out, as if it was in sleep/hibernation. The led light cover mode monitor "sleep". I did the whole "all never put under power options. I've updated my Nvidia graphic drivers for later. I even disabled Hibernate in the command prompt. Seriously, I have above average PC knowledge. But it has trampled me... everything short.

    Sometimes, I have to go through this cycle up to 9 or 10 times and then stops. Other days there is no question. But I still have to reboot just to be safe and to avoid the game stutter (another question that I don't know what it is, since I was the latest GPU drivers). But I can live with that.

    It cannot be an overheating GPU. I mean, it's at the start and at the present time, it is cold enough to have this piece as a cooler for the GPU! Haha.

    I thought about possible power supply problems. But how to test it? The laptop doesn't have it, the first week I got it. I use an adapter to put the American card in European decision-making.

    It is the ONLY major problem I have with this laptop. Sleep at startup. The other two, being game stutter if I don't restart my laptop and double tapping (seems to be an Asus problem according to the forums), are quite minor and I can live with that.

    Any help with this would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm VERY tempted to get windows 7 and do a clean install, but Vista was not really giving me any problems. But if I know that this issue is associated with Vista, then I say Bravo to Vista...

    Edit: Apologies for writing this thread Windows 7 and explore the internet forum. Don't know how it happened! Well I'm leaving here now, and hopefully this will get sorted.

    After 2 replacements of mobo that apparently caused this same prob, what finally fixed for me has been updated the chipset drivers.

  • Monitor goes into sleep mode during the installation of Windows 7

    Hello, I'm doing a new install of Windows 7 pro on a new SSD. He gets regarding to reset for the second time during the installation, and just before showing the page where you name the computer and configure user accounts, the monitor goes to sleep and won't return. only way to recover is to reset the machine, only to do exactly the same thing again. Anyone know what could be the cause? I used the same disk of windows for many expenses format / install Windows after hardware upgrades in the past and this has never happened before. Can provide the complete specifications of the system if necessary. Help, please!

    Hi Danpedro,

    I see that the screen goes into sleep mode, in the last step of installing Windows 7. I'll help you with this problem.

    1. What is the brand and model of the computer?

    2. you have an external display driver card attached to the motherboard?

    3. you format the hard disk during Windows 7 installation?

    Method 1.

    Disconnect any external devices and restart the computer to see if it helps complete the installation of Windows 7.

    Method 2.

    If you have a driver to attached external display card, then you can disable this external driver in the BIOS and check if that helps complete the installation of Windows 7.

    Warning of the BIOS:

    BIOS change / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide 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.

    Let us know if you need assistance with any windows problem. We will be happy to help you.

  • My computer will always run a scheduled backup, if it goes into sleep mode? Windows 7...

    original title: will BE BACKUP OCCUR IF MY LAPTOP GOES TO SLEEP MODE? (WIndows 7)

    I have my laptop value backup at midnite.  I have the computer goes into "sleep" mode before.  Is my computer still backup as expected?

    You can get the Task Scheduler to wake him up.

    You can configure the backup form program timed task in the Task Scheduler with the game of "wake up to perform this task.  Depending on what you use for backups, the backup application can already use Task Scheduler & all you need to do is add the "wake up to perform this task" setting.

    To open Task Scheduler, type 'Planner' in the search box of the start menu.  Search in the left pane and select its library.  Browse the tasks in the list that has your backup program in its "Action" tab  Make a copy [a test version] 1 by clicking Export in the right pane & recording in an easily accessible folder, 2 when you rename the file in the selected folder [simply add 'Test' at the beginning of its name] 3 click on import in the right pane to bring in the copy renamed the task from the same folder.

    Now you can play safely & just disable the test version when you are finished.  The main change would "allow to wake up...." "and it's in the conditions tab.

    If it works, let the enabled test version & disable the original for a few days while you're fairly confident that the new version works.  Then you can delete one of them - but only after have exported them again if you know that you can recover later.

  • my notebook, ProBook 450 G2 go goes into sleep mode when well even parameters of energy set to never.

    My notebook, ProBook 450 G2 goes into sleep mode when well even parameters of energy set to never. The operating system is Windows 7 Professional.  I had a technician Microsoft verifiez_ the. I also had HP tech check the. They both said that it was a hardware problem. I sent it to HP to fix it and they replaced the motherboard and said that they have tested. When I came back, it entered into mode 'sleep' again. I left my laptop for about 15 minutes and when I came back it was in mode 'sleep'. This always occurs after the laptop remained for about 15 minutes.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    I sent my laptop repair HP. They replaced some cables and motherboard, but it does not solve the problem. They finally replaced the Windows 7 operating system. Basically they gave me a new system. I spent 3 days to update windows with all the updates and then re-loading of my programs. What a mess!

  • What printer goes into sleep mode computer stops

    just got a hp7520 as a gift. updated from xp to 7. If the printer goes into sleep mode, the computer shuts down.  currently I'm keeping the printer in demo mode so that it does not expire.  Anyone know how I can use printer without him turning off the computer in normal mode?  I talked about Noone has even heard of that happening.  I hope someone can help. Thank you!

    Hi @JNBLanocha

    My stomach says mt that perhaps you have the printer USB cable connected to a USB 3.0 port on your computer instead of a 2.0 port. The image below is some examples of 3.0 ports.

    3.0 ports are supposed to be backwards compatible, but I've seen questions arise.

    I wonder if the cable you are using is the computer and causing problems pulling power. All I can do at this stage is to assume and to gather information. Please post back with the answers to the following questions;

    1. You have a USB connection
    2. If the USB is connected, you use a 2.0 port or 3.0?
    3. Again, if you use a USB connection type, have you tried another USB cable? It could be a cable problem.
    4. You put XP or you remove XP and install Windows 7?
    5. You have your printer connected directly to a power outlet, or you are using a power strip/bar, or a surge protector?
    6. Now this may sound silly, but you have a timer on your computer, such as the hibernate after so many minutes and maybe the computer and the printer are set at the same, it is possible the moment closures / sleep coincide.

    I look forward to hear from you and to work towards a solution.

  • When my computer goes into sleep mode, I have to press the power button to turn it back on.

    original title: sleep/hibernation

    When my computer goes into sleep mode, I have to press the power button to turn it back on.  I used only having to press a key on the keyboard.

    Can someone tell me how to solve this problem, as if it was before?

    Well, on the theory that your computer is awkward, try to change the settings to another thing and OK your way out the control panel.  Then go back and put them in the way they were and OK your way out.  Occasionally, it will reset the internal parameters and things can return to normal.


  • Monitor goes into Sleep Mode immediately after the connection to the motherboard

    Hi all

    My problem is like this.

    I have a desktop crt monitor. When I give power to it without plugging it into the motherboard, it's showing a message 'no signal' all the time and never goes to sleep mode.

    But when I connect it to the motherboard, the monitor goes into sleep mode immediately. When I delete the connection of motherboard once again, it's back mode 'sleep' and saying 'no signal 'again.

    Any other monitor works well with this office properly.

    This same thing happens when I am trying to connect this monitor to my laptop as an external display device.

    What could be the problem?

    Kind regards


    Hi Ty,.

    I suggest that you check the manual of the monitor to check the frequency of the monitor support.

    It seems that the monitor is defective because the other monitor works fine.

  • Continue to application play when the device goes into sleep mode

    Hey guys,.

    wondering if anyone knows how to maintain an active application when the unit goes into fashion watches?

    My application needs continue to work when the device goes into sleep mode if he went in that State by itself, or if the user put it to sleep.

    Yes I tried it on a physical device. It works, I promise you

    To clarify, here is what you will see when using KEEP_AWAKE:

    1 device shall not sleep when the application is currently active

    2. the device shall not sleep if the application is reduced, and you are in mode carousel

    3 device WILL sleep if the user switches to another application and full screen.

    In addition, another thing to know, if the unit is not assigned to the showcase mode, which is not by default, the audio stops when the user leaves your app. This is not related to sleep and is totally out of our control, but could be a good thing to add to your product details.
