I accidentally put my Compaq 6715 b laptop into hibernation. I don't know how I did it or how to bring it out of hibernation.


You need to hit the power button just the once to bring it back out of hibernation mode. It may take around 30 seconds until you hear your computer starting to boot back up and a little longer for the screen to come on.

Failing this, you can try a hard reboot by holding down the power button until you hear your computer re-boot. Usually you need to hold around 10 seconds. However using this last method as a final resort will result in your computer telling you that it did not shut down properly.

I accidently shut my computer down with hibernation before leaving. When I come home, the computer will not turn on, no lights no noise, nothing. How do I unlock the hibernation? Or could it be something else? Thanks

what is hibernate


Hibernation is when your computer powers down but saves all open programs into memory so that when you restart your system, they all open up again without you having to do it. You must have at least as much free space on your hard drive to store that which is in your RAM. To enable it, right click on your desktop, choose Properties, choose your Screen Saver tab and then Power. Click the Hibernate tab (it won't be available if you computer doesn't have the option) and then check Enable Hibernation. Click OK.

Boot failure pentium 4


here is a temporary fix, but you may like it as a permanent one. Use the Windows hibernate mode. It actually works every time! Windows makes a "System screen shot" and stores it on hard drive and then powers off. Just be aware that you must ensure enough hard drive space for this. I am using this mode every day now. I think your system is trying to reject the power-saving features selected in Windows or at CMOS settings. Try turning off (or disabling) one feature at a time. I still think hibernate is the way to go. Here is a useful tip: to force hibernate (after it has been enabled) select START-SHUT DOWN and hover over STANDBY button and then hit the SHIFT key. The STANDBY button will turn into the HIBERNATE button. This is a quick way to enter hibernate. Remember to enable SYSTEM RESTORE mode so that if anything goes wrong during this "experiment", you can easily restore Windows system. I also use RESTORE but I also "clean house" once a month by turning it off and Disk scan and defrag and turning it back on.
