Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

My laptop doesnt Hibernate.

Most of the times a laptop would fail to hibernate due to an OS Driver Management Issue.

Even after doing Lot of Homework on setting up the Hibernation settings, if your laptop is not hibernating, Check for the Posibility of having a new device attached to one of the ports or a new application installed.

Usually when a hibernation process starts the Kernal would enforce the App Manager and the HAL to communicate with the backend process and the Driver programs to close down the operation and write back the system state logs to the hiberfil.sys.

The Applications and Driver programs running on a windows system should abide to the WDDM Framework. (Windows Device Driver Model). A device driver which is running on a windows system if not written to follow the WDDM Framework shall refrain from closing the ports and getting to the hibernation status due to which the kernal will not be able to close the programs and return to hibernation mode and this keeps the system running live.

So check for any such new applications running on your Windows system and also check for any Wireless device like (Mouse or Keyboard) which is not Windows Compatable and running on the system.

Hope this solves the issue. (Good Luck).

Try going into your control paned and disabling your hibernation settings under the power management section. I've seen hibernation cause this issue many times.

Laptop does not wake up after sleep


I see this problem a lot, in most cases it is a problem with the ACPI driver. The easiest solution is to make changes to the Power Management settings. What happens is part of the computer goes to sleep and part goes into hibernate. Unless I am trying to conserve battery power I set the system to always on and use the screen saver to protect the screen from damage. If I am looking to save battery then I still set the screen to always on with the black screen saver and set the rest of the settings to sleep with no Hibernate settings. Hibernation is nice but really does nothing more than write data to the hard drive so the system can restart and you do not save anytime allowing it to operate. It causes more problem in configurations than it solves. In fact the only machine I might consider using a Hibernate setting on would be a server.

when my m45-s331 laptop is turn on for a long time, if i put the monitor off, maybe in not be turn on again and it's brightness become very low and hardly it can be seen! what should i do?


if you're using win xp, try to check the power option.(click start, go to control panel & power management/power option).from there, you have an option to adjust your screen brightness settings everytime you wake up your system from sleep mode/hibernation mode.
other option, you can update your video driver. here's the link http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=882862&rpn=PSM40U&modelFilter=M45-S331&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663
then choose display driver. download and install it. It will update your video display driver. It might help to improve your brightness issue.
Good Luck,
Ryan

hibernate


Laptops have a ACPI power management piece of hardware on the motherboard. Sounds like this driver is corrupt or missing. Go to Acers website and look for drivers and find the one that says ACPI or even chipset drivers may have it.

Won;t Hibernate


Sony laptops are infamous for these kinds of problems. You very likely have another Sony program running in the system tray which is trying to control all power functions in a "smart" (in other words, defective) manner, and this is conflicting with and resetting your OS's normal power settings. Try to find this program on your laptop and run it and check what it thinks it is doing. You might also have a problem with the actually writing of the hibernation file on your machine due to any number of problems (low disk space, conflicting file names, corrupted administraive priveledges for whatever program thinks it is doing the writing). I'd suggest uninstalling the SONY power management software and then using the stuff the operating system provides. It might not be good, but it at least works kind of, and consistently.

The changing status of the hibernate settings you describe suggest to me that another program is changing them to try to be "efficient".

Last resort - disable hibernate; it doesn't work very well on Sony laptops even at the best of times.
