Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

Shutdown and DVD Player problem

\015 I have a newly purchased Toshiba Satellite U400 Laptop\015\012\015\0121. My laptop automatically restarts approx. 15 mins. after shutting down if I leave the power adaptor plugged-in. It wont happen if i unplug then plug-in the power adaptor after normal shutdown procedure. My laptop is usually for home use so I want to leave the power adaptor plugged-in, otherwise the batteries might be fully discharged if user forgets to plug-in the power adaptor when using it.\015\012\015\0122. The built-in CD-DVD player works good on CD or DVDs playback and/or burning into blank DVD. However, it does not burn images to blank CDs. I had tried updating the driver software and system analysis also indicates that "this device is working properly". Clue: on the DVD properties, it does not show or give a selection for CD burning option.\015
