The PaperClip Returns - Toshiba Laptop Reset Trick

A Toshiba Satellite laptop that I own shutdown and then wouldn't do anything. In the old days, I would pull out the battery with the power off and that would reset it. In this laptop the battery is built into the frame like an ipad. The solution (after talking to the support guy) was to unplug the laptop and put a safety clip (not pin) into a very small hole in the corner. This reset the computer.  Then I could resume as normal.
