Toshiba Laptop Satellite A10 or something!

  [DELETED] 20:10 13 Aug 2003

Hi everyone,

have just got a new laptop - a replacement for the one recently stolen from car boot (Grrr!).

My query is - does anyone know why it powers down at regular intervals? This happens even when being used. The Toshiba that was stolen did the same. There must be a power save setting or hibernate setting that I haven't found because I have looked and the settings I have made should not cause it to power down.


Fire :)

Check Control Panel, Power Options.

Does this happen whilst in use?

Is the battery fully charged?
