Inspiron 1000 keeps going into hibernation when plugged in

My laptop started shutting down like the battery was dead, but it was plugged into the outlet. Thinking it was a bad battery, I purchased a new one and it worked for awhile then stopped. Do you think the AC adapter is bad? The green light is on solid on the adapter.

Does your laptop really shut down or is it going into hibernation mode. The way you can check is to enter the control panel and click on the power options. You will find power options for both battery and AC operation. Listed there is the time that the computer will run without any input before it goes into hibernation mode. If you wish to increase that time, just enter a different time. Or you can choose the "never hibernate" option.
See if that works for you. I'm assuming that your computer is just sitting there with no activity when this happens. If this is not the case, then we have to do a bit more troubleshooting.

How to increase your Laptop's Battery Life?


Information:
With the rise in laptop sales it is essential for laptop buyers to make sure they use their laptop batteries to the fullest and also make sure they can achieve the highest performance with the available battery. Generally most laptops claim to have 4-6 hours of battery life but in real it comes to 50% of the promised backup time because of many factors like heavy laptop usage while on battery backup, running USB Based gadgets, CD/DVD ROMs etc. You also need to make sure about some battery life saving tips because the laptop batteries generally have a life of around 1000 recharge cycles.
Here is a list of some essential tips which can almost double your laptop battery life.
Screen brightness:
Almost all laptops come with the ability to dim the screen brightness. Some even come with ways to modify CPU and cooling performance. The display system takes 50% of your available HP 510 battery and lower brightness would ensure you more HP 510 battery life.
Power Cord:
Recharge your laptop using the laptop power ac adapter provided by the laptop dealer and don’t use any other local cord because they can decrease the life of your battery.
Remove your batteries When not in Use:
If you don’t use your dell inspiron laptop for a continuous period its recommended to remove your dell inspiron 6400 battery completely from the laptop and add it back when you plan to use it. This is because laptop batteries have a limited battery service lifetime and its generally 1000 charge cycles after which they stop offering complete backups. Even if it is not in use, the dell inspiron 6400 battery still drains, so you should completely remove it and store in a cool place and at a 40% charge rather than 100% charge.
Background Processes:
When you are running your dell inspiron 6000 laptop on dell inspiron 6000 battery, avoid heavy multitasking, because processor and ram will then need more power thus making your dell inspiron 6000 battery drain further.
Wi-Fi:
Wi-Fi should be turned off when not in use because it drains your sony vgp-bps8 laptop battery in search of signals and wireless router. You can use the hardware switch available on the laptop to disable your wifi or disable it from the Network Connections option available under your Control Panel.
Disable Aero Glass:
Disable Aero Glass Feature which comes preinstalled in Windows Vista. You need to right click on your Desktop > Preferances > View Colour > Appearance > Classic Appearance and Windows Basic graphical interface > Ok , this way you can get the classic appearance which has less resource using features and helps you use less battery power.
Heat Control:
Your laptop operates more efficiently when it’s cooler. Clean out your air vents with a cloth or keyboard cleaner.
Optimize Power Options:
Go to ‘Power Options’ in your windows Control Panel and set it up so that power usage is optimized (Select the ‘max battery’ for maximum effect).
Avoid Multitasking:
Do one thing at a time when you’re on battery. Rather than working on a spreadsheet, letting your email client run in the background and listening to your latest set of MP3’s, set your mind to one thing only. It is important to note that it is fine running an idle program at the background but if the program is constantly doing some work like downloading or extracting a Zip file, this is when the business notebook nx6110 battery drains out.
External Drives:
USB devices (including your mouse) drain down your business notebook 6710b battery. Remove or shut them down when not in use. It goes without saying that charging other devices (like your iPod) with your laptop when on battery, is a like putting a wood on fire.
Battery Recharge:
Do not leave a charged battery dormant for long periods of time. Once charged, you should at least use the battery once every two to three weeks(2 weeks is recommended). Also, do not let a Li-ion battery completely discharge.
Hibernate Not Standby:
Although placing a laptop in standby mode saves some power and you can instantly resume where you left off, it doesn’t save anywhere as much power as the hibernate function does. Hibernating a PC will actually save your PC’s state as it is, and completely shut itself down. Settings up Automatic Hibernate feature to make sure the laptop automatically saves all your running documents and applications, and hibernates when you are not using the laptop for a given amount of time is very important.
Clean Battery:
Clean the metal contacts of your hp compaq business notebook 6715b battery every couple of months with a cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol. This keeps the transfer of power from your battery more efficient.
Publish abundant battery information and thourands of great deals ,useful guideline to buy a good battery with substantial price.

My acer computer will turn on but wont come out of hibination mode


Some laptops have issues with Windows XPs hibernation mode. To get the computer back up again you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.

Once you get the computer back running again you may want to disable hibernation if it seems like its going to keep happening. Go to Start, Settings Control Panel or Start, Control Panel and go to the Power Options icon. Change the hibernation section to never. You may want to try standby as an alternative. Standby saves all your running applications and documents into RAM while hibernate saves them to the hard drive. Hibernate uses less power from your battery, but it will take you considerably longer to get the computer back up. If you always plug the computer in then you may want to disable standby and hibernate since you really dint need them while plugged in.

Let me know if this works.

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.
