Question about Acer Aspire 4520-5582 Notebook
I tried to searching hibernating topic on Windows Vista Help Topics, I found, then I follow the instructions, and I found on Power buttons and lid section, I tried to search the hibernate but is only found Shut down and Sleep only. I very hate that. How I can enable the hibernation? Please help me.
There are two ways to enable hibernation on a laptop. When you bootup your laptop, there is a text hint for access to your laptop's setup. It is Del, F2 or F10 most commonly. Look for that hint and enter hte bios setup for your laptop. Once inside the setup, look on all the pages to find the power options for running on Adapter Power and Battery Power. In this area will be an option for the default action when your lid closes. The safest is turn off, but more commonly you will want to user Hibernate. You can set this for the action on batteries and on adapter if you want.
As you may know, hibernation requires and creates a rather large file on your C: drive that contains all the information Vista needs to reload your computer to the exact state it was in at the time you placed the computer into Hibernation.
Also, in Windows also, you can enable hibernation and set its terms. Right click a blank area of your desktop, select Properties. You will see the well known Screen Saver and Desktop Background choices interface. When you click on Screen Saver you'll notice at the bottom right a button titled Power, click on that. On the subsequent page look for and check off the box titled 'enable hibernation'. You will also see the various timeouts for Standby, Sleep and Hibernate now. You will also see options for actions such as closing the lid. You want to be certain that the actions in Windows for the Lid Closure matches the actions you set in the System Setup at boot time.
