PC won't wake up after Hibernate, Standby or Restart

If you place the PC in standby or hibernate or you do a restart - the PC just has a blank screen (won't boot up again). If you do a full shut down and then turn it back on - it will boot.

    how is that supposed to help if you can't boot the thing up in the first place?

  • Anonymous May 19, 2009

    I've had the same problem, but only if I close the lid. I have to hold down the power button and do a warm boot, which is not good for the system. IBM had me reset my computer back to its factory state (yes, back things up and wipe out everything to start over-- what a pain this has been because things never go back quite the same). So, it worked again for a while at least and then the same thing stared happening again. IBM doesn't have an answer for me. If they tell you to reset it to factory state, good luck!

You need to take off your hibernation.
In control panel display then screensaver.Then click power at the bottom of that screen.
You'll see a setting for system standby you can set that to never.At the top click on hibernate remove the check in enable hibernation.
Click apply restart and your system should work.

There is a big difference between hibernate and sleep mode. One will not wake just by opening the lid. You can get a full answer from this web site:

I suggest visiting that site for a full explanation. It just might be the answer for which you are searching.

My Samsung N10 is turning on from stand-bye by itself. Any solution?


Most likely you are touching the keypad or mouse and it thinks you are waking it up. You might try selecting hibernate instead of standby which will put it to sleep and won't wake up until you press the power button. If you don't have the hibernate choice you'll need to go into your power settings to enable hibernation.

When I take the computer out of the standby mode


Try this:
  1. Update the BIOS and Video driver to the most current on http://support.dell.com
  2. Disable the screen saver
  3. Enable HIBERNATE instead of standby in Power settings, set the LCD to go off in 10 minutes, HDD to 15 and Hibernate in 20.
Select Shutdown, Hibernate
then try and restart

If no GO, disconnect all peripheral items except KB

Try hibernate again and restart.

If all works OK, add items back one at a time till you find item causing issue. If no go, replace power supply if issue still occurs, replace MB

Blank screen


Turn Hibernate off for one thing. Hibernation leads to registry problems and boot issues. Go to control panel > power options > hibernate tab > uncheck the box. Reboot the machine. If you want, the laptop will go into standby mode after a period of time and will wake up with a touch on the touchpad. Go back to power options and there are settings in there that you can tailor to your liking.

When I try to place my laptop on standby, it does


Go to the control panel, then power options. Go to the hibernate tab and ensure hibernation is enabled. Then, on the advanced tab, you can tell it how to enter hibernation :)

That should do it for you. If not, post a comment

Dell crashes and restarts upon sleep_suspend_hibernate


I'm not a big fan of using hibernate or standby, I've seen it cause too many problems, such as the one you're having. I shut my machine down when I'm done, or let it run if I'm coming back within a reasonable amount of time. I've also seen hibernation or standby create operating system errors or glitches, and premature hard drive failure. If the machine is working properly other than hibernation/standby you should shut the hibernation off and just shut the machine down when not in use. If you're getting this error when using the power button to turn off the computer, then the operating system has glitched or is corrupt and needs to be reistalled. If you need anymore help with this let me know.

If you are using Windows XP then go to Screen Saver tab of Display properties. There you can turn on hiberation under the Power Setting command.
The shortcut to it is when you click "turn power off' and you get Standby, turn off and Restart buttons. Now press the shift key, the standby button will change to Hibernate.
