    In my vista based Toshiba Satellite, if you move the mouse to the top edge
    of the screen a row of "on screen" virtual buttons drops down from the top
    edge. They have functions like sleep, brighness etc.
    Note: I'm fairly sure this is a toshiba thing and not a microsoft thing but
    i cant find anywhere else to ask.
    I am always inadvertantly bumping my mouse on the top edge of the screen if
    a window title bar is close to it, its very annoying to have this thing
    unexpectedly drop down and most of the time it wont disappear by itself, you
    have to click the left hand escape virtual button and then click on a
    regular window somewhere for it to slide back up into the top edge.
    What is that thing called? I cant google it successfully cuz i have no idea
    what it is referred to as.
    Is there a way to disable that? There must be a utility somewhere that has
    a check box that says "dont use this feature"

    Google for example 'sleep function in Vista' or 'drop down menu'---- you
    will get lots of ideas !!
    Have a look in Display properties too for the power settings ????? You are
    not very informative in your query in any case!!!!!

    Uninstall all the toshiba shit, one by one, starting with anything that
    looks like it might be the culprit.
    Once you have found the item you'll want to put your laptop back to factory
    settings and uninstall all the shit you don't want before you set it up and
    take a working image.

    You could also just start killing shit in task mangler and take note when
    the functionality of the thing ends.

    For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down
    in words with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived
    it. There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which
    are not thoughts, and to which as yet I have found it absolutely
    impossible to adapt to language. These fancies arise in the soul, alas
    how rarely. Only at epochs of most intense tranquillity, when the
    bodily and mental health are in perfection. And at those weird points
    of time, where the confines of the waking world blend with the world of
    dreams. And so I captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem,
    is but a dream within a dream.
