Try updating the video drivers from the Toshiba website.

Have you gone into the power options via control panel? Look on the left and create a power plan.

1. Click on Start, and then click on Control Panel.
2. Click on "System and Maintenance".
3. Click on "Power Options".
4. Select a power management plan and then click on "Change Plan Settings".
5. Click on "Change advanced power settings".
6. In the Power Options dialog that appears, expand "Power Buttons and Lid", and then expand "Start menu power button".
7. Click on "Setting" and then choose the function you want the button to perform - "Sleep", "Hibernate", or "Shut down".
8. Click on OK.

You might have configured it wrong...

Do you have a window (when you go into power options) that says "My Custom Plan 1" with a little button next to it?

i'm sorry, i see what you're saying now. so what's the correct configuration? "start menu power button" has to have the same setting as "power button"?
thanks.

There are different power settings for each system - and they're very customizable. It'll take a bit of playing around inside the interface, but you'll be looking for the one that's labeled "close lid" or something similar.

For the video drivers, just download them to your desktop. Then uninstall the current one's (if available) through Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program. Once that's done, double click on the downloaded file and follow the prompts. The hardest part is figuring out which video card you have. Let us know the make and model and we'll see what we can figger out!

BTW - I just bought a Toshiba X205 for the wife yesterday and it's absolutely fantastic! And it came with Restore disks!!!!

it's so frustrating ,no matter how i configurate it, it still doesn't work. it goes to sleep, and restarts again, same thing with hibernation. and after a couple of times of attempting, a black screen comes up saying something like " windows failed to shut down properly....."
i have the P105 series. please advise further on the video driver part, i don't see such download for my particular model on their website.

There are 31 variations of the P105 listed at the ToshibaUSA site (this presumes the laptop was purchased in the USA) - which one is yours? You'll find it on the bottom of the laptop and it will be a series of letters/numbers that follow the P105 designation.

it's p105-s6187,i actually called toshiba technical support, needless to say, they aren't so helpful. i was told "based on the configuration u told us, we can't find anything wrong....." i've had hp, dell before, none of them solved anything ever. honestly whoever invented technical support over the phone was really wasting his/her time and energy.
what am i supposed to do now :huh:

Here's a link to the page with the downloads for that model: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su...kceghdgngdgmm.0

There are listings for both an Intel and an nVidia graphics card (display adapter) - so you'll have to find out which one you've got. Go to Start and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter - then click on the + sign next to Display Adapter and figure out which one you've got. Then you can download the correct one for Vista from the Toshiba website.
