Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?
My laptop freezes up when im not using it,i cant do anything the only way i can turn it off is to remove the battery. Do you know how i can fix this?
Check the settings for sleep and standby times. It sounds like you are going to one or the other of these modes. Also, holding the Power switch down for 10 seconds will force a shutdown.
