Hi,

I have a satellite laptop Toshiba with win 7. If I take my laptop out of the house to another place I close the lid and when I open the lid again after 20-30mins I just get a black screen.

Do I need to turn off the laptop every time I leave the house? I am then ending up removing the batter to reset the machine as holding on/off button doesnt always work in this case.

Maybe the hard disk is sleeping or hibernating.    Depending on the specs,  it might have a hard time coming back from this.    Try turning off sleep and hibernation and see if the problem goes away.

if this is recent - try a system restore to a date it was OK
then watch what updates get installed -  they can be the cause

but it worked ok before - then a factory reset will help
be sure to backup your data first
