    The weirdest thing has been happening. I recently refreshed my laptop and on a as needed basis re-installed my programs. Now when I leave it alone for a few hours, weird things happen.

    1) Both Chrome and Firefox open new windows instead of tabs

    2) Keyboard types all caps without CapsLock on and when I turn on Caplocks it's lower case.

    3) I have classic Start Menu installed and when I click it I get the Win8 apps screen.

    4) When I reboot the Win8 screen comes up with various choices as if I was seeking to fix something. I click Continue.

    5) When the Toshiba splash screen comes up I have to hit Enter to get the spinning circle dots to get it to start booting up into Windows

    6) It asks for my password even though I have that disabled

    Any idea what's going on? I have all the power options disabled. The only power option I have enabled is turn off screen after 10 mins.
