Laptop screen does not wake up

When my laptop wakes up from Standby, the screen stays dark and I have to restart.

The screen works just fine after Hibernate; using XP Pro.

Is it plugged into a power supply?

Because standby can continue to use battery power. Hibernation doesn't. Check your power settings and adjust as needed.

Yes -- I am plugged at the time

... so the issue of power is probably not the factor

Usually the maker's issue.

Such can be heavily dependant (and is!) on the maker's drivers. Nothing in your post suggests this is the maker's drivers or the OS from the restore CDs.

It is a restored...

The OS ( This is a Toshiba Satellite ) was actually restored by a Toshiba technician from their own set of CDs.
Trying to update the driver found no better driver available -- will try further in this direction. Thanks.
