Can't get my laptop out of hibernate/standby mode. Need help

Just got a used laptop and all was working fine until it went into hibernate mode / standby, was in the process of updating internet explorer. I checked the user manual and pressed the power button as it describes in the user manual but it didn't do anything at all. No lights now nothing...like it is powered off completely and won't come back on.

Try removing the battery and all pwer from the computer.  This will kill the hibernation process.  Put the battery back in, with outlet power if you desire.  Then try to start the laptop in safe mode.  (Everything will be very big)  Go to the start menu, accessories, system tools, and stystem restore.  Go through the process of restoring the computer any time before you tried installing the update! Then it will automatically restart in normal mode and you should have your old internet explorer back and it SHOULD start up normally!  Hope this helps! :)

Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

Enable Hibernation in Windows 7 Starter on Samsung N150


Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work. This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation. Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money! Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow. The Shut Down menu appears. Point at "Sleep" and click on this option. Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode. Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse. There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on. All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode. Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity Your Computer in sleep mode b> First, save all of your work. Information in computer memory is not saved while your computer is on standby. From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel, then Power Management. Click Standby Beside When I Push the Power Button. Push the Power button. b> Automatically Putting Your Computer on Standby b> Save all work before leaving your computer. From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel. Double-click Power Management. Set the times that you want your system to go on standby, to shut off the monitor and to shut off the hard disks. Click OK. Your computer will go on standby according to the schedule you have entered. b> Putting Your Computer in Hibernation b> From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.

Dell Inspiron going to hibernate when its not set on hibernate


The hibernate mode is one of microsoft's worst idea because it often corruped window files forcing the user to reload windows from scratch. When you were in power options did you also turn off standby? and set it to never on the list.

Toshiba A215-S4767 will not start up correctly.


First off, Windows just didn't like the way the computer shut off, I would just restart normally and see what happens. Next when it boots up and you get into windows, Go to the control panel > Power Options > go to the hibernation tab and make sure hibernation is unchecked. Next go the setting that reads "shutting the lid". You want to open this setting with a drop down list and pick "Do Nothing", this will keep the laptop from entering standby mode just for shutting the lid. Laptops do not like hibernation or standby modes....windows hates it and will give you all kinds of problems if you continue to use it.

My laptop has went into hibernation and shows a small moon and that the battery is in use. I took out the battery and it still shows it in use. It won't come out of hibernation and won't go back to...


The moon means Sleep or standby mode, if the laptop attempted to enter hibernation and sleep mode at the same time it could just be stuck in a hibernation loop and unable to load.

To test this, remove the battery and AC adapter, then hold your power button down for thirty seconds. Once you've done this replace the battery and power cord then try turning it on.

Let me know how you make out and if it doesn't work provide any other details you can including anything that comes on the screen and any beep codes you hear as it fires up.

Thanks and good luck,

Chris

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.

You may have a problem with standby versus hibernation mode. Go into control panel and look for your power options. You need to look for power options for standby etc. Ideally you should not allow your computer to hibernate. Some laptops just wont come out of hibernation mode successfully so preventing it is a good option. Secondly scan your laptop for viruses at the earliest opportunity
