I have Vista Ultimate running on my new Toshiba S-5034 notebook. In
the middle of the night, I don't know exactly when, the thing wakes
up for some reason and sucks up juice! Aaargh!
The notebook gets awfully hot in the bag as the fan struggles to
keep it cool in the confined space. I am left with a weak battery
for my commute too :-(
I thought that hibernate was the deepest power saving mode? The
hardware is completely powered off. It is only that the O/S saves
the CPU and memory state to HDD right and makes a boot-up "note" to
itself to restore the image? Therefore, can any task that was
running in Windows possibly wake up a system in hibernate state? I
don't think so because they aren't running.
Since the notebook is in my bag with no Ethernet or wireless on, I
am sure that Wake-on-LAN (WoL) couldn't possibly be the culprit for
problem or could it?
Yes, I am sure my notebook is in hibernate mode and *not* in sleep
mode. All lights go off on this Toshiba (there is a standby light)
and I have unplugged the notebook's battery and power adapter. I
can successfully resume where I left off after reattaching
everything and powering back on.
Can anyone offer any advice on this problem? TIA!
