I must be an idiot.
I set on/off button of new Satellite Pro A200 to activate hibernation.

Then set BIOS password. Despite password correctly entered, it will not start windows.
Nor can I shut down laptop by holding down the on/off button to force reboot.

So
1) how do I reboot short of waiting till the batterys run flat...... And
2) when and if I do manage a reboot, which key (s) should I hold down to enter BIOS.

Many thanks for help.

Do you have a Phoenix BIOS? If yes then you have to press the F2 button immediately after notebook starting to access the BIOS. But you will be not able to access the BIOS if the password is not right and cannot be verified!

The unknown BIOS password can be deleted only by an ASP in you country. There is a special procedure which is only known to the Toshiba authorized service technicians.
Therefore follow the recommendation and contact the guys!

PS: The notebook should shut down when you press the power button for about 4-5sec.
Otherwise disconnect the AC and remove the battery to disable the computer!
