Toshiba laptop won't wake up from stand by or hibernate

\015 My Toshiba Satellite M100 laptop won't wake up from stand-by or hibernate. When I press the button to wake it up the LEDs light up and the fans turn on but the screen stays black. Eventually I have to shut it down using the power button and restart it. When it starts up again it tells me that Windows has recovered from a serious error. I am running XP.\015

I had the same problem on my Toshiba Satellite U305, struggling with it for the past 4 months and having to use Shutdown each time I was done using it. Very frustrating! Toshiba worked with me several weeks, telling me to re-install Vista and all the fixes, which took a lot of work backing up etc and this did not fix the problem. Today they finaly told me to try entering this special command and it fixed my problem. Maybe it will fix yours too.

\015\012Create a shortcut on the desktop and to make the shortcut, right click on the desktop, choose Create Shortcut, enter CMD.EXE where it asks you to "Enter the location of the item". This will create an icon on the desktop that looks like a mini-command prompt. Then on the desktop, RIGHT click on the CMD.EXE shortcut/icon you have created and select "Run as administrator". This will open a command prompt window. Here in the black-box with white letter window, enter the command "powercfg -h on" (without the quotes). Reboot and see if the problem is resolved. This fixed my Toshiba Satellite that had this problem.
Actually your laptop do wake up. But the problem here is that the back light of your screen won't light up after it is wake up or resumed from hibernation. To confirm this try directing a torch light when this occurs. If the screen is on without the back light, you could see the contents displayed(most probably your logon screen).
To correct this, try reinstalling your display drivers, hotkey drivers and power management utilities.
