Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite P205D-S7438 Notebook ?

Laptop apprears to go into sleep mode while I'm using it

\015 I have a Toshiba Satellite P205 with Windows Vista. While I am using the computer, it appears to go into sleep mode, but I cannot turn it back on. The screen goes blank, but it's still lit up so it's not completely black. The hard drive light is not blinking so I assume the computer is no longer running but I am not certain. I just bought the laptop and thought it must be a lemon so I exchanged it for another and the new one is doing the same thing. It is literally shutting down while I am using it so it can't actually be going into sleep mode and I changed sleep mode settings to not be activated for 45 minutes. Any thoughts?\015\012\015\012I have that exact problem. Mine is the satellite P205D S7438. I've had mine a little over a year. I called toshiba for support and they had me check settings and such, but it still does it. It drives me crazy! Toshiba technical support is no help at all. I wish I would have purchased a different brand, but I guess I'm stuck with it now. Any one have any info on how or if this can be fixed??\015
