Keyboard unresponsive after returning from hibernation

I have a Dell 7210GX laptop. When I try to re-use the computer after it has been in hibernation, I can usually hit the 'backspace' button and it continues to work as normal. Now, the keyboard is completetly un-responsive after hibernation and I have to shut the computer off and then use it again. Help?

My m14x keeps shutting down when i usethe keyboard


Open Control Panel, Power Options, Set to High Performance, Open Advanced Power settings, Set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, adjust other advanced settings to your preference. If this fails to fix, Return it at once while your warranty is valid. After Dell bought Alienware they sort of went south.

My dell Studio laptop takes too long to wake from sleep mode and the monitor just flickers when i try to switch on


If you use Windows 7, u might have hybrid sleep activated. This is similar to hibernate. When u choose SLEEP, your computer goes to hibernate. Sometimes this hibernate just hangs. You have to reboot computer.
Try pressing the power button for several seconds (10-15). It should power off the laptop.
If not, unplug the charger and remove the battery for a few minutes. Then try to start it up again.

Resumes windows from hibenate but the screen is blank


Try this: ( windows 7)
Usning an EXTERNAL USB keyboard, reboot the laptop and enter the
"Restart with low resolution display"
Login as normal
Go to Control panel and change resolution to normal settings
Visit the Dell site and download the latest drivers for the graphics card.

If this does not help, try changing the hibernation settings:
Start / Control panel / Power options/ Hibernation tab/ click to clear the "enable hibernation" box

This wont cure the problem, but it will give you a workaround

Unresponsive keyboard


Replace the keyboard. They're readily available on ebay. Also, try plugging a usb keyboard in & see if it still happens. If it does then forget replacing the keyboard. Instead you'll be needing a motherboard.

How do I get a monitor out of hibernation mode? It is not responding and did not reset when I rebooted.


Try using the power button, which usually takes the computer out of hibernation. Also, the mouse and keyboard can sometimes wake the computer from hibernation as well.
If the computer is still stuck in a hibernated state, hold the power button in for about 5 seconds so the computer fully shuts down and power it back on.
Good Luck!

My laptop does not fully hibernate!


Unfortunately , hibernation issues are tough to pin down.

See this link

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907477


Basically says , meh could be anything.

One thing you can do to narrow it down is to go to Start > My Computer > RIGHT click on My Computer > click Manage > expand Event Viewer > Click on Applications and see if you have any Red ! around the time it was supposed to be hibernating.

If you see a message like "application hang" you can try uninstalling and reinstalling that particular app.

An easier way is to use a program called smart shutdown.

http://lifehacker.com/5046541/smart-shutdown-offers-more-ways-to-turn-off-your-pc

This program will kill any unresponsive programs and keep trying to hibernate until successful.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
