Re: Sudden Shutdown/Hibernate

Right click anywhere on an empty space on desktop and click on properties in the menu ( or go to control panel and double click on display).

Now in the display property windows click  on screen saver and then click on power at the bottom right.

you will then get the power schemes option where you can change the settings for hibernation , standby etc, adjust it such that your system never hibernates automatically.

How to start up faster, via enabling hibernation on your notebook.

Starting up much faster. When your computer hibernate, it stores whatever it has in the memory to the hard drive and then shut down. Once you power up again your computer come out of hibernation and return to it previous stated, and therefore booting up faster.
To enable hibernation on your computer do the following: On your desktop right click then go to properties, once in properties then go to Screen saver tab in there chose monitor power button. Once in the monitor power chose the tap for hibernation, then enable hibernation.

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.

Fig. 1. Windows VISTA Start Menu. To put Windows VISTA to Sleep or Hibernate, click the small arrow head right next the Lock icon then click Sleep or Hibernate.

Fig. 2. Windows 7 Start Menu.
To put Windows 7 to Sleep or Hibernate, click the small arrow head right next the word Shut Down then click Sleep or Hibernate.

Packard Bell laptop switch off instead of hibernate

This is done via Windows Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> "Power options" -> "Choose what closing the lid does" and select 'Hibernate' instead of 'shut down' for both 'On battery' and 'Plug-in' power.
Let me know how you go!

My laptop was on hibernation. now it is not booting. please help

Hibernation is enabled by default in Windows Vista, and is one of the seven options (i.e. Hibernate) that appears on the Vista shutdown menu. Hibernate your Vista system will enable you to quickly restore to existing system state and intact workspace instead of start afresh, run programs and open your documents one by one again. If you do not use the hibernate feature in Vista, and want to delete hiberfil.sys and then recover the space occupied by the big hibernation storage file, the hibernation function can be turned off and disabled.
Unlike Windows XP, users cannot turn the hibernation on or off via Vista GUI interface anymore. Previously users can enable or disable hibernation via Power Options applet in Control Panel. This option no longer available in Windows Vista, which also enables Hibernate ability and creates hiberfil.sys by default. Instead, users have to rely on command line utility Powercf and Disk Cleanup Wizard to disable hibernation in Vista. Microsoft KB920730 provides details on how to disable and turn off hibernation on computer running Vista system. You must log on to Vista with user account in Administrators group to perform these action.

Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt or Cmd, and then click Run as Administrator on the pop up contextual menu.
If you are prompted by User Account Control for permission, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: 

powercfg.exe -h off
Type exit, and then press ENTER.

Another easier workaround for those who’re not comfortable to work with command line is to disable hibernation and hybrid sleep feature in Windows Vista is by using Disk Cleanup wizard tool, the built-in Windows disk cleaner to delete hiberfil.sys file. The hibernation file must be enabled to access the hybrid sleep feature and the hibernation feature in Windows Vista.
Click Start button, then go to All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools, and run Disk Cleanup.
Choose which files to clean up, either My files only or Files from all users on this computer is fine. 

On “Drive Selection”, select the Windows Vista boot drive to clean up. Note that you must select the drive where Vista is installed, which normally is also the boot drive (C:) as hiberfil.sys file will be located on the root folder of it. 

Once Disk Cleanup finishes scanning the system, Disk Cleanup for Vista window will open.
Select and tick the check box next to the Hibernation File Cleaner. 

You can select or deselect other type files to clean or preserve from the available items or options in the list provided.
Click OK button when done.
Hibernation will now be removed and disabled.

It will solve your problem.

If you cannot see the speaker icon in the taskbar, click on Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and tick place icon in the taskbar. That's if a driver has been installed for your sound device which is a creative sounblaster I think.
