    This was never a problem before...

    Here is what happens... I am on my laptop, when i am done with it and go to bed, i close the laptop. It remains closed throughout the day until i come home from school. I open up the laptop and the screen is just black. It does not resume its self. The computer is on though becuase i can hear the fans going and other activity. So I have to manually hold down the button to turn it off and then turn it back on, which is a great annoyance.

    How can i fix this from happening?


    My computer is a Toshiba Satellite 1415

    Alas it's not uncommon for the computer to act in this manner, its actually "dying while asleep" for want of a better term.

    More likely it dies immediately it is asked to wake up.

    The cause could be any of the drivers or added hardware (if any), it's very hard to diagnose.

    Laptop hardware is usually OK with hibernation, the mode was designed for use with laptop hardware in mind.

    Its even possible that Windows updates may have caused a problem, with some incompatability but that is also hard to prove.

    I would start by reloading every driver with the latest available from Toshibas support website.

    Well.. I am using a modded graphics driver.... That could be it. But there is no way i am uninstalling that. I went through hell to make sure it was compatible and everything. The thing is... I think hibernation worked even with the modded driver.
