Hello, I have a Toshiba satellite M115 that when you close the lid it goes into standby for a short time, then wakes while the lid is still closed.

You sure about "space", spelling, minus sign in front of "lastwake"?

I'd assume then, that probably XP doesn't have "lastwake" option.

Go Start>Run (Start Search in Vista), type in:
msconfig
Click OK (hit Enter in Vista).

Click on Startup tab.
Click Disable all
IMPORTANT! In case of laptop, make sure, you do NOT disable any keyboard, or touchpad entries.

Click Services tab.
Put checkmark in Hide all Microsoft services
Click Disable all.

Click OK.
Restart computer in Normal Mode.

NOTE. If you use different firewall, than Windows firewall, turn Windows firewall on, just for this test, since your regular firewall won't be running.
If you use Windows firewall, you're fine.

Same problem?

Re-enable everything back.
Do you have any USB devices connected to the laptop?
