Standby mode is not working..

My problem is the stand by mode in my laptop. I tried many times to usethe stand by mode when my computer is not in use. Before it was workingand i didn't experience any problem. This only happened a couple ofmonths ago. When i clicked the standby mode button, the ''preparing tostand by'' appears in the window. And I waited for how many hoursexpecting it may work but it didn't. The ''preparing to stand by isalways there. So i have no choice but to press the power button in mcomputer so it will turn off, and i will start again. It really bothersme because every time my laptop is not plug after a few minutes''preparing to standby'' appears..
Hope you can help me with this problem. I really wanted my standby mode to work. So please help me.. Thank you guys..

    i have a thinkpad T43, which i just reformatted. i am running it with windows XP. Everything is more or less fine except that there is no longer an option to standby/hibernate. It used to go into hibernate when I would close the laptop lid, now nothing happens, and seems like even screen is still working. In Power Options the option of standby/hybernate doesn't even appear, and also in the "turn of computer" win, the standby option is disabled...
    Do I need to install some other driver? Any ideas?
    Thank you all!

Check Control Panel -> Power Options -> Hibernate
The "Enable hibernation" will be greyed out and you cannot turn
it on if you do not have free disk space greater than the
"Disk space required to hibernate". You will need to free up some
disk space probably equal to the amount of ram in your system.

Define hibernation & stand by


Hibernation: The computer saves all data currently in memory and all open programs just as they are. It freezes everything in a way. All the saved programs and data are written to the hard drive for storage. That way the computer can sit for a long time without drawing power to keep the open programs and data saved. However, it will take a longer time to wake up the computer.

Standby: The computer does not save open programs and data to the hard drive. Instead it keeps everything open and simply goes into a super lower power state. The memory receives a constant stream of minor power so that it can keep the programs and data in memory until the computer is woken back up. The computer will wake up much quicker but will draw power slowly as it sits in Standby mode.

Standby mode is not working..


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, would suggest going into the CMOS/BIOS setup and restoring all configurations/settings back to default. Should this be not corrective, try verifying settings inside the Properties box of the Power Options inside Control Panel.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Computer does not stay in hibernation or standby mode


That happen because on the stand by or hibernate setting the time was setting in 5 minutes.
Go to Control Panel >> Display >> Screen Saver >> Power

And set the time right there as your preferences.

Generally you can just hit the space bar a couple of times, and that should bring the machine out of Standby mode. However, if it is not Standby but Hibernate mode, you usually need to push the power button to bring it back from Hibernate.

You can adjust these and other power settings by going to the Control Panel, and clicking on the Power Options applet.
