Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite L305-S5877 Notebook ?

My Toshiba Satellite L305-S5877 will sometimes go into a "sleep" type mode randomly and the screen goes almost completely blank. I can just see what is on the screen very faintly. I checked and re-checked, changed settings and they seem good. Any suggestions?


Answers :

Hi,
\015\012Go to "POWER OPTIONS" in the control panel.
\015\012You will see 4 options under "Power Schemes"
\015\0121. Turn Off Monitor.
\015\0122. Turn Off Hard Disks
\015\0123. System Stand By
\015\0124. Hibernate
\015\012
\015\012Make sure that you select the option "Never", for all of them.... Hope that should work
You have to disable the hibernation mode. Sounds like this is the problem. Go to Start - Control Panel - Performance and Maintenance - Power Options - click on Hibernate tab and uncheck where it says Enable Hibernation. This should fix the problem. Cheers
