Question about Computers & Internet

My laptop has no option to hibernate or sleep

I have no Hibernate tab under Power options. Also, in Power Options, The only option I have for ''When I close the lid...'' is ''Do Nothing''. I want it to go to sleep or hibernate.

Fabulous site and service (unlike Experts Exchange which wants me to pay for their help, which is freely available elsewhere!)! I am adding a link to it from my Computer Page at: http://harry.cckerala.com

Thanks.

    Thanks very much for the explanation and the advice. Yeah, that was the first thing I tried before I posted - SHIFT-shutdown. :) My 12 years of desktop support experience prompted me to try that before posting. Didn't work at all, though that method works on my desktop PC.

    I went into the registry to try your other suggestion. However, I went as afar as: \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\ but there was no System or Shutdown keys in there. So, I created them and assigned a DValue, to no avail. I rebooted and tried again. Same thing. Al I see when I hit Shutdown are Turn Off and Restart!!

    I am puzzled. Any other suggestions? Thanks, anyway.

See the difference between this place and experts exchange, is that at EE only qualified experts help you. It's a grueling challenge to become a qualified expert at EE, but once you do... guess what! you get unlimited access to everything! Only dummies or the lazy have to actually pay for it :P

Butttt fixya is of course, free.

anyways you get the "hibernate" option in the shutdown dialog box by holding down SHIFT. The "standby" option should suddenly turn into "hibernate". sneaky huh?

There's a registry hack you can use to put it in there permanently if you feel like:

You have to disable the hibernation mode. Sounds like this is the problem. Go to Start - Control Panel - Performance and Maintenance - Power Options - click on Hibernate tab and uncheck where it says Enable Hibernation. This should fix the problem. Cheers

How I can enable Hibernate and Stand By button? I have windows XP SP3


Hello,

You can enable hibernation in Windows XP by following the steps below.

1. Type powercfg.cpl in the Run window. To get the Run window press Win key + R. Or, you can go to the control panel and click on Power Options.

2. Find the Hibernate tab and click on it. Check the Enable Hibernation check box. In case its necessary, free up some space on you C: drive by running disk cleanup or your favorite system cleanup utility.

3. Now you can hibernate your system by clicking on the Start button and then on the Turn Off Computer (or Turn Off ). You'll see three standard options, Standby, Turn Off And Restart.
Hold Shift key and you'll see the Standby button turns into Hibernate button. Click to hibernate (Still holding the Shift key).

4. Optionally you can do this: Create a batch file for hibernating, and put it on you desktop. Every time you need to hibernate your system, just double click this file from your desktop. To do this, First Open up Notepad, type the following line in it.

%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState Hibernate

Then save the file as, something.bat onto your desktop. Run this batch file to hib

Or you can
manually put your computer into hibernation:
1)Open Power Options in Control Panel.
2)Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box.
If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
3)Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
4)Click Start, and then click Shut Down. In the What do you want the computer to do drop-down list, click Hibernate.

To automatically put your computer into hibernation:
1)Open Power Options in Control Panel.
2)Click the Hibernate tab, select the Enable hibernate support check box, and then click Apply.
If the Hibernate tab is unavailable, your computer does not support this feature.
3)Click the APM tab, click Enable Advanced Power Management support, and then click Apply.
4)Click the Power Schemes tab, and then select a time period in System hibernates. Your computer hibernates after it has been idle for the specified amount of time.

Power management lets you reduce your Notebook power consumption. Your Notebook has two power management modes:
  • Hibernation is an energy-saving feature and safeguard that saves information to the hard drive, then turns off your Notebook. When you resume from Hibernation, your information returns to the screen where you were previously working. Your Notebook hibernates when the Power button is pressed, when the battery has little power left, or when your Notebook (operating on battery power) is in Sleep mode for more than one hour.
  • Sleep, also called Standby, is an energy-saving feature that reduces power to system components that are not being used. When Sleep is initiated, your information is saved in Random Access Memory (RAM), and the screen is cleared. Your Notebook is still on, but the display is blank. When you resume from Suspend, your information returns to the screen where you were previously working.
Automatically put your notebook into hibernation Windows can automatically put your computer into Hibernate mode after a specified period of inactivity. Or Windows can detect when your batteries are running low, and then automatically put your computer in Hibernate mode to save your work before the battery fails. NOTE: Using Power Options in Control Panel, you can adjust any power management option that your notebook's unique hardware configuration supports. Because these options may vary widely from computer to computer, the options described may differ from what you see. Power Options automatically detects what is available on your computer and shows you only the options that you can control. To automatically put your computer into hibernation:
  1. In Category view, click Start , click Control Panel , click Performance and Maintenance , and then click Power Options . In Classic view, click Start , click Control Panel , and then click the Power Options icon.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, select the Enable hibernate support check box, and then click Apply . Figure 1: Enable hibernation check box c00035872.gif
  3. Click the Power Schemes tab, and then select a time period in System hibernates. Your computer hibernates after it has been idle for the specified amount of time.
Manually put your notebook into hibernation This feature is available only on notebooks with the Windows XP operating system installed.
  1. In Category view, click Start , click Control Panel , click Performance and Maintenance , and then click Power Options . In Classic view, click Start , click Control Panel , and then click the Power Options icon.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box. NOTE: If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start , and then click Turn Off Computer . In the Turn off computer dialog box, hold down the Shift key. The Stand By button will change to Hibernate. Click Hibernate .

Where is the Sleep Button to put D-I'n-1000 into hibernation


There is no SLEEP BUTTON per se on and Inspiron 1000 system.

Enabling Hibernate is easy enough though. Go to Control Panel, POWER OPTIONS. In the power options window, click the hibernate tab and ensure the ENABLE HIBERNATION checkbox is checked., then click the ADVANCED TAB. Look for the "When I close the lid of my computer option and select HIBERNATE.

Since that system doesn't have a SLEEP BUTTON, that option may be listed, but is of no use.

Hee is a link to the I1000 manual
