Satellite C70D-B-32U wake up on keyboard

Question: Satellite C70D-B-32U wake up on keyboard

I have 2 issues with my new Satellite C70D-B-32U.
When I put it in sleep mode, it does. But after about 5 minutes, it goes automatically to hibernate. This I don't want. And I don't want to disable hibernate, because I do use it when the laptop is not in use for longer periods. The power settings in control panel do not reflect this behaviour. In the settings, I specified that the laptop should never go to hibernate. Hybrid state is disabled.

And secondly, more importantly. Whenever it goes to hibernate, I can only wake it up with the power button. Not with the (internal) keyboard, not with the usb mouse. I would like an option to wake it from hibernate by pressing any key on the keyboard. In bios power on keyboard is set to on. Is there anything else I can change to have this available?
Actually if issue 1 is solved and the laptop stays in sleep mode, this issue is also solved since from sleep I can wake on a mouseclick which is also fine.

The OS is windows 8.1

Preferred Solution: Satellite C70D-B-32U wake up on keyboard

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi There,

I have had a Satellite C70D for about 18 months now, but have not used it in the past year as I have been disputing with customer services about the windows licence for the machine as I lost it when I formatted the original hard drive before installing an SSD and they wouldnt send me a copy of it. I have now bitten the bullet and bought a windows 10 licence again. However since building the machine a few days ago, I have been having a couple of issues and as it is now out of warranty, I cannot contact customer support (Who I found unhelpful even when it was in warranty!)

The first issue is when I boot up the machine, occasionally the keyboard will not work, I cannot type the BitLocker pin and I have to remove the battery and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, this then fixes the issue for a few reboots before it goes again.

The second is that occasionally it will boot up with a red x next to the WiFi symbol, but it detects the WiFi card, usually a reboot fixes this but not always. I have reseated the card and still no avail.

Can anyone shed any light on what may be causing this? The BIOS is up-to-date as are all of the drivers.

Thanks in advance for your help

is there a way to turn on the laptop while keeping its lid closed using a USB keyboard. if yes what is the key combination

Answer:Satellite Pro A200: Wake-up over keyboard using an USB keyboard

Hmmm? I don?t know if you can wake up the notebook if the lid is closed but as far as I know it should be possible to wake the notebook using a keyboard itself.

The Toshiba HWSetup was preinstalled on the Vista OS. In this tool you should find an option called: ?wake-up on keyboard?.

This can be found in the keyboard tab and you need to set it to ?Enable?.
Furthermore please enable the Legacy USB support. This option can be found also in the HWSetup under ?USB? tab.

Best regards

Hello all,

I have a Satellite A300-1ME , and also a intel 4 PC desktop computer and i'm using a KVM(Keyboard Video Mouse) to control both computers with one keyboard&mouse. The kvm has PS/2 cables and is connected to the TOSHIBA by a PS/2 to USB switch cable. The connection of keyboard&mouse to the laptop is connected to a USB port. I'm using vista 32bit on my laptop, and XP on desktop personal computer.

Now for my question, how can I use the keyboard to turn on the laptop from shut-down (not sleep mode). I tried to do that by choosing wake-up keyboard in HWSetup and also I checked the bios, for the "wake-up keyboard" option and it was chosen but still it doesnt start the laptop with the keyboard.

P.S if there's no way to turn-on the laptop from keyoard then maybe by pressing the dvd-rom button. if someone knows how to do that let me know

Answer:Satellite A300 - How to use wake up on keyboard feature?

Hi buddy,

In user manual I found the following information:
+Wake up on Keyboard: When this feature is enabled and the computer is in sleep mode, you can turn on the computer by pressing any key. It is effective only for the internal keyboard and only when the computer is in sleep mode.+

Does this answer your question? ;)

Hey there

I want to use my laptop as a local pc. I want to power on, without opening the cover. I have two options in Bios: wake up per keyboard and wake up over lan. How do I install this?

And are there any newer graphic drivers for ATI as the old one from 2009? Really we have 2011. :( There must be newer drivers

thanks :)

Answer:Satellite L550-204 - Wake up per keyboard and display drivers

Hi buddy,

I would recommend reading the user manual ;)

Wake up on keyboard:
+When this feature is enabled and the computer is in Sleep Mode, you can turn on the computer by pressing any key. It is effective only for the internal keyboard and only when the computer is in Sleep Mode.+

Wake up on LAN:
+This feature lets the computer?s power be turned on from shutdown when it receives a wake-up packet (Magic packet) from the LAN. This feature doesn?t not affect the Wake-up on LAN from Sleep or Hibernation mode.+
(With other words only be useful in a network)

So you can?t turn on the notebook without pressing the power button.

By the way: Why you need newer display drivers?

Just bought a Satellite C70D with Win 8.1. Everything works (as far as I know until know), except boot from DVD. I disabled in the bios the Secure Boot and changed the boot order to DVD first, then USB and then HDD. The DVD drive starts, but then it skips to the HDD and Windows is started. First time I tried there was a message like "DVD boot not supported" or something like that.
The DVD is bootable, so that is not the problem.
I would like to install Linux Mint alongside Windows.
Anyone solved this problem already?

Hello everybody,
the Toshiba Sat C70D-B-317 (PSCLEE01L009FR) is on it's way and I don't have it for the moment but I would like to know if there is a way to add some Ram to this machine without opening everything?

I thank you in advance for your answer.


Answer:Satellite C70D-B-317 - Ram upgrade

1. yes you can upgrade your RAM, This laptop has 2 slots with one 4GB standard so if you would you can put one more 4GB. With 2x4 you have Dual-channel and that works much faster than single

I don't know if your HDD can e upgraded. When it's not possible you can always buy a external HDD

I have a C70D-A-107 and want to speed up this notebook. Already placed 4gb extra memory so the notebook has now 8gb internal. I doubt whether it is usefull to put in 2x8gb. I think the processor is just to slow. It has a AMD E1-2100 inside. Is it possible to put in another (faster) processor?

Answer:Speed-up Satellite C70D-A-107

The Satellite C70D-A-107 was equipped with an AMD Essentials E1-2100 Accelerated CPU (1,00 GHz, 1 MB L2 Cache)
It’s not the fastest CPU therefore the notebook performance isn’t the best…

But CPU upgrade isn’t officially supported by notebook manufacturer... therefore I don’t think that you will be able to upgrade the CPU…

I read about successful Intel CPU upgrades but did not meet anyone who was able to perform an upgrade with an AMD CPU

My wive purchase this computer coupple of months ago. It was from the beginning ferry slow on windows 8
The wurst laptop we ever had. We feel robbed of our money.

2 months ago we started with Ubuntu. It Still slow. IS there anybody with the same problems?



Answer:Satellite C70D-A-108 is very slow

Hi Marco

I don't have this notebook model and cannot confirm what you wrote but fact is that almost all new notebooks are pretty slow at the beginning. Many applications are set to start with Windows and this, of course, slows down boot time.
Windows updates are also set to automatic so in the background the machine will download and install many updates so this will slow down your machine rapidly.

In my opinion you should install original OS that you got with this machine and optimize it a bit.
Remove all useless stuff, change start-up option and disable automatic Windows updates.
In the past I have noticed that original preinstalled antivirus is also responsible for notebook?s performance so I don't use original preinstalled application but my own version of Avir Antivir and it runs perfectly.

Check all these options and I hope your machine will run much better than before.

Any ideas greatly received.

Answer:Brand new Satellite C70D-B-10U wants a password?

Try to recover the notebook once again using the HDD recovery option.

The recovery procedure would reset the notebook back to factory settings… usually after that no passwords should be set…

I think your notebook has only small stereo speakers and the sound is not the best. I have Satellite S50-B with Harman/kardon speakers and sound is really good.

You can try to change sound options but if you want to have better sound I’m afraid you need external speakers, Maybe BT speakers.

I am not able to use the Keynumbers 1 to 4 neither the space Key to enter a space between two always change between the bigger screen solution or the normal solution...

I only can change the FN Key again after change the settings in Display settings and after a reboot...
So I cant use FN without a reset with the F1 to F12 Key use and a reboot...

Normaly the FN Key works only if it is pressed...if not the normal Function of the Keys 1 to 4 or F1 to F12 will work if configured in the settings, or not?

What to do?

Kind regards

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-11D Function Key deactivate after use

First of all you can change between the special function key mode (without pressing FN key) or normal (standard) mode (Hold Fn first to use standard F1-F12 functions.)

This function can be changed in BIOS.
In BIOS go to Advanced -> System configuration

Check this option.

All you can find for free are all drivers, tools and utilities. Original recovery image (software package) is not for free and if you need it you must order recovery disc directly by Toshiba.

Answer:Can I replace the HDD in my Satellite C70D-B -00P model with an SSD?

Generally speaking yes, you can do this but problem is that your notebook model doesn't have HDD cover at the bottom side.
To have full access to the HDD the bottom cover must be removed completely but it should be done by authorized service only.

Of course you can try to do it alone but I?m afraid you may lose the warranty.
If possible contact nearest Toshiba service provider in your country, explain the situation and ask for help.

Who can give me the golden tip?

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-306 - 2 unknown devices in device list

There is a good method in order to find out what drivers are missing.
First of all you should check the DEV (device) and VEN (vendor) IDs

Here is an short instruction how to find this details:

Knowing the device and vendor ID, it should not be a big deal to get the right drivers.

At the other hand you should install also additional Toshiba software (Toshiba System Driver) released for Win 8.1
Please note also that there are two Win 8.1 driver areas: ?Win 8.1 update? and ?Win 8.1 32bit/64bit? categories
In case you would not find all drivers within the Win 8.1 update check also the Win 8.1 32bit/64bit categories.

The notebook supports the AMD Radeon HD 8400 graphics which is part of AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 CPU.
Such GPU is similar to Intel HD GPU which is also part of Intel CPUs.

Such internal graphic cards are not really designed for gaming? of course you would be able to run and to play a game but don?t expect too much?

I have buy a Satellite C70D-A-11T and pass it on Windows 7 64 bits Home Premium.
I install all the drivers and I haven't any problems.

When I want to connect it to my TV for first time, I discover there is no sound on the TV.
I try to go on the speaker (near the clock of windows), right click, sound, first tab (I think it is "Playback" in english... I have a french Windows) and my device (TV) doesn't appear.

I come back on Toshiba Support website to download the last driver "HDMI Audio driver" for my laptop, I connect the cable, and it appear in the sound properties. I select it as my default device and the sound come right from my TV.

Great !

But when I restart my laptop (with or without the HDMI cable), the TV disappear from the list in the sound properties, the only one solution to recover the sound is to reinstall the HDMI Audio Driver.
If I start the driver installation with the "advanced" option, I have the list of drivers to install and I see all drivers are already installed, but the HDMI Audio Driver will be upgraded... I install it and it work until the next restart.

Could you explain me why the version of the driver don't stay on the system, and how to make it work without reinstall it everyday ?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi there

Pretty much every time I turn on my laptop I am being asked to enter in the date, it defaults to 1.1.2015. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can overcome this issue? Just to be clear this happens right at the point of turning the computer, i.e. before Windows even starts to load up. It must be date/time settings of the device.

Answer:ODD on my Satellite C70D-A-11E wont read DVDs anymore


If optical disc drive is installed properly maybe is reading lens dirty. Try to clean it up.

Other way, if your ODD can read CDs but not DVDs it can also be hardware malfunction. The reading lens cannot be calibrated properly and cannot find the right position to read DVD media.

In such case ODD must be exchanged.

Try to clean lens up and check if the problem persists. If yes contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.

Hi all,

excuse the new thread but I haven't found any answers anywhere online, just speculation and it's for different models.

So I have a C70D-B-10U, running windows 7 64bit pro. When I formatted it and updated everything, it just kept crashing when trying to play back videos on Windows Media Player. I cleaned the inside and replaced thermal paste, updated to even newer drivers, and started using VLC as my default media player. It rarely crashed BUT it always does when I try to start playing games (nothing heavy - League of Legends). Laptop seems to be doing well with memory tests, no faults detected.

I've read that this could be caused by:
Faulty GPUFaulty BatteryFaulty PSUBad Capacitors on the MOBO

Has anyone had any similar experience? I've reinstalled Windows and it's the same story. If it's a motherboard issue, I guess it would be better to just get a new one?


Answer:Satellite C70D-B-10U no warning crash (power, GPU or capacitors)

Update: I decided to test the RAM and it seems like it can't handle 8GB. Both 4GB sticks work on any slot, but when I have all of it on the machine it crashes. Do you think it is a motherboard issue?

Hi there,

I was bought the above model of laptop for an early Christmas present which usually sits down in the living room, my old Satellite Pro sat down there with no issues however with this device the wireless signal is very low and I appear to be having it sitting right next to the wireless router (which is located upstairs in my sons bedroom), I wondered if there's any steps I could take to improve the signal?

It baffles me how a new system has such a poor wireless signal when my old Satellite Pro which was 6 years old had no wireless issues whatsoever.

My other issue is from the moment I switched the laptop on (yesterday when it was delivered) the updates on Windows Update are slow or don't start at all, is this an issue or just normal?

I'd appreciate any help or input at all, thank you.

Would be grateful for any advice to remove the back panel.

I've removed battery, ~16 screws + 1 tiny screw at the optical drive and whilst it does 'unclick' everywhere else, there seems to be something stopping the panel being removed just above the battery compartment and don't want to force it.

Even our IT guys at work cannot work it out.

PLEASE new laptop is very slow so have purchased RAM but can't access the back.

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-30D: How to access back panel after ~16 screws removed

At first I must say that you should not remove bottom cover alone because it will cancel valid warranty. If there is no RAM cover, RAM should be exchanged or upgraded by authorized personal only.

I know every of us think it is easy to do and want to do this alone.
What I know is follow:
2 screws in the middle are fixing the keyboard. What must be removed are 14 screws and small flat screw at the optical drive. That’s all. There is no other hidden screw.

Of course there are also small plastic holders and bottom cover must be removed very gently.

I've only noticed today that when I turn up my laptop's volume up to about 28 (even with headphones in), there's this high pitch noise that comes from the speakers. And I'm sure it's the speakers and not anything else.
But the sound is sort of that real ear-killing noise so I can't listen to it for long. It even sometimes sounds like thousands of crickets - a complete nightmare

But with my volume at any level below 28 I can listen to whatever through headphones without the sound bothering me.

Does anyone have any ideas for a solution? I do know a thing or two about computers but nothing about anything extremely technical and I'm not sure if I want to take it apart, unless I really have to.

I just upgraded the APU and motherboard of my HTPC and i had to format. I used to be able to wake it using 2 keyboards but now it isn't working anymore.
In the device manager, the option "allow this device to wake computer from sleep" is enabled

In power management, USB selective suspend is turned off.
My motherboard is MSI a75m-e45.

In BIOS advanced settings, in the "wake up event setup" options, there is an option called "wake up event by:"
It is currently set to "OS"

The second option is "BIOS" which unlocks the following options:
"wake up from S3 with USB device"
"wake up from S3/S4/S5 by PS/2 keyboard"

Wether i enable or disable these options, the computer still won't wake from sleep using any USB devices...

Without going into the lengthy details, suffice it to say that this morning, after doing a test for SuperAntiSpyware, I found that I could not wake the computer using the keyboard. I normally use the mouse, but as I had removed the wireless mouse dongle in testing, I could not use it, so tried the keyboard, to no avail.

A quick press on the computer's power switch woke it up, and replacing the dongle re-energized the mouse. I then went into Device Manager, which lists two HID Keyboard Devices, although I have only one keyboard. One on-line article says that this is not unusual for Windows to list more than one. In Device Manager, I determined that both entries show that they are set to allow them to wake the machine. powercfg -devicequery wake_armed also indicates that both are properly set.

Why, other than that my computer is just trying to be unfair, can I not wake the computer with a keyboard that supposedly is set to allow it to do that?

(I forgot to mention that the keyboard is USB, not wireless.)

Answer:Keyboard Non-wake anomaly

Check in your BIOS and see if there is a wake setting involving the keyboard. Some BIOSes have a "Wake on Keyboard" parameter, or you can select a key to wake the PC up, such as the space bar.

Dear Windows experts,

we are now fighting with a TOSHIBA laptop, that has its power button broken.
The idea is to always send the computer to sleep, instead of shutting it down,
then use the keyboard in order to wake up the laptop.
This option is present in the BIOS and we have already activated it.
Reading different forums, I have seen, that it is necessary to enable wake up
by keyboard in windows as well.
Though the problem is, that we are missing the famous "Power Management"
tab in the properties of both the keyboard and the mouse in Device Manager.
After an extended google research, we have come to the magic way to do
this via the command prompt - with the help of the following mighty command:

powercfg -deviceenablewake "Standardtastatur (PS/2)"

But it doesn't work, we are getting an error that we have not enough permissions.
The computer has Windows in German, so I will just write the exact error message,
I am not sure how it exactly translates in English, but it is a permission issue:

Reaktivierung eines Ger?ts aus dem Ruhezustand.

it's like you don't have the permission to activate or deactivate waking up of
a device from sleeping mode.

Hello members,

I was wondering how to wake my laptop from sleep using my Bluetooth Logitech K810 keyboard.
Currently, through Device Manager, I do have "Allow this device to wake computer" checked through Power Management for both the keyboard itself and HID Keyboard Device.

What's odd is that I also have my Logitech MX Performance connected via 2.4Ghz and I have the "Allow this device to wake computer" unchecked, but only my mouse wakes my laptop from sleep.

So overall, I disabled my mouse from waking up my laptop and I have enabled my keyboard to wake my laptop from sleep. But the opposite occurs.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Answer:How do I Wake PC from Sleep using Keyboard

You wouldn't be able to have the Bluetooth keyboard wake the system because Windows needs to be running in order for the keyboard to work. Windows is what makes the connection using Bluetooth. So, if it is in Sleep, it wouldn't be able to wake it. The mouse has its own connection to the mouse without the need of software so it is like it is physically connected and therefor it would be able to wake it.

I hope this makes sense

You won't find driver properties there.

Right click start and select device manager, then go to your KB and Mouse items, right click and select properties, but I've looked at mine for my laptop, and there is no power management tab there.

Are you sure it may not be asking you to check a BIOS setting for power management to allow KB/mse to wake it?

By default KB /mse should wake it with no further action.

List your laptop make, model, screenshot of device manager with what's listed for KB and mse.

I tried a few other keys with the same result, along with the mouse.

So I went into the device manager and checked things; 'allow this device to wake the computer' is enabled for both the keyboard and mouse, but when I check the usb root hubs, they've all got the option greyed out.
I checked in the UEFI (BIOS) and I can't find any option to change it there (and, like I mentioned, the only difference is the new HD, the BIOS settings weren't touched), and I'm about ready to lose my mind.
If it helps, I'm running an ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z motherboard.

Hi, I'm new to the forums and I need help waking my laptop with my in-built touch pad and keyboard. To do so I need to enable a setting on my Touch Pad and Keyboard driver/device properties, which should be located underneath the 'Power Management' tab. However, there is no such tab. I have also tried to use the 'powercfg -deviceenablewake' command, with Admin rights, to no avail. Please help me! This is causing major headaches when I my laptop goes to sleep!
Note: I have recently installed Windows 10, as my old HDD 'failed', installed/updated all my drivers, disabled hibernation mode and am using all in-built components (ie: no USB keyboard/mouse).

Answer:Wake from Sleep with Touch Pad and Keyboard

You won't find driver properties there.

Right click start and select device manager, then go to your KB and Mouse items, right click and select properties, but I've looked at mine for my laptop, and there is no power management tab there.

Are you sure it may not be asking you to check a BIOS setting for power management to allow KB/mse to wake it?

By default KB /mse should wake it with no further action.

List your laptop make, model, screenshot of device manager with what's listed for KB and mse.

Relevance 47.56% finally got my X1C today. One thing I am noticing is that the machine won't wake up from sleep mode when I press any key on the keyboard -- it only wake up by pressing the power key. This is a bit unexpected to me. Is it by design, and is there any way to change this? Thanks for your help.

Answer:X1C won't wake up from sleep mode using keyboard

Does it awaken from stand-by if you press the Fn key? That's been the ThinkPad standard for as long as I can remember.

I already posted this in the newsgroup section but felt I may get more joy in here, so I reposted as my original thread falls down the ranks, so, sorry about double posting the thread, but hopefully I can get a response on the forum section.

Anyway, here goes:

My problem is that I can't stop my Keyboard from waking Vista from sleep. I've gone through Device Manager and onto the power management tab for the keyboard and have unticked "Allow this device to wake computer" but it makes no difference, the keyboard still wakes the pc. I've checked the bios and there's no option to stop the keyboard waking the machine there. After unticking the box to stop the keyboard waking vista I ran "powercfg -devicequery wake_programmable" and the keyboard is still shown in the list of devices that can wake the computer.

The keyboard I'm using is an EX110 (Logitech).

I'd really appreciate any help on this.


Answer:Can't stop keyboard being able to wake vista

I would love to help but I don't really understand the problem. How can your KB wakes Vista unless you touch a key? if it does it all on its own, how can the KB knows that vista is already sleep?

See what I mean? I am probably not understanding this very well.

Even after a ISO rebuild at Win 1511, pre- Anniversary it won't respond to a mouse or keyboard.

I have to shut it and re-start.

Answer:USB Keyboard or mouse won't wake machine

Open your Control Panel and double click the mouse icon.

When the mouse properties dialogue opens select the hardware tab and then click the properties button.

Click the "Change Settings" and select the "Power Management" tab

Make sure "Allow this device to wake computer" is selected.

There should be a similar setting under the "Keyboard" option in the control panel.

Up until recently, I have either put my laptop to sleep or let it go to sleep at the end of the day. The next morning I would hit either the mouse or keyboard (probably mostly the esc key just because it's sort of prominent at the corner). Some time recently, I haven't been able to wake up the machine this way. It won't wake up until I lift the cover.

As far as I know, I haven't changed any settings.

The settings for both keyboard and mouse have Allow this device to wake the computer checked in Device Manager.

Answer:Keyboard & Mouse won't wake PC from sleep

While not my best suggestion, have you tried restoring your power plan to defaults, shutting down, power on, set power plan to your preferences and see if behavior changes.

I have a U450p that I use with an external monitor and keyboard and mouse. Since the laptop's lid is usually closed, I'd like to be able to wake it from sleep using the external keyboard and/or mouse. However, it seems the only wake to wake it from sleep is to open the lid and hit one of the keys on the laptop's keyboard. I have enabled "allow wake from sleep" on the devices in device manager, as well as disabling power down of the USB root hubs in device manager, but nothing seems to work. Unfortunately, there are no settings in BIOS that are relevant. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I've toggled all the windows settings I can find that allow the devices to wake up the machine. Mobo BIOS is set to wake S3 with USB.

Answer:wireless USB keyboard fails to wake

Roger if you used the Windows driver feature (not a fan) it isn't that goodand I always get drivers from the manufacturer where possible and I think thisis the one for the keyboard that you want

This is the one for the mouse
Try and let us know how it goes if it doesn't do the trick then maybe you might have to reset the BIOS to a default one - I am not sure on that though.

I forgot where the setting is to allow the system to wake up upon hitting any key or moving the mouse. I looked under bios but don't see anywhere that I can change the setting to do this. I used to be able to get out of hibernation just by moving the mouse and keyboard. Can someone refresh my memory? Thanks
