    When I close the lid, it used to go into standby and the little orange light would blink to let me know its in standby mode. Now if I closed the lid, the monitor, drive, etc. will turn off but the orange light won't come on and the fan still blows like its on full power mode. Its like its going into a half assed standby mode. The worst part is if I open the lid and try to come back into normal mode, I can't. I end up having to hold down the power button and reboot. Anyone know whats wrong?

    Nevermind guys, I fixed it. Toshiba has a list of programs that might prevent your laptop from going into standby on their support site.

    PCAnyhwere 10 is not on this list but was the last program I installed. After I uninstalled it, standby works again. I hope this might help someone with a similar problem.
