Sudden Shutdown/Hibernate My Packard Bell Igo 5581 has developed the annoying habit of immediately returning to Hibernation when I switch on and boot up. Using Windows XP and AOL 9 or Internet Explorer 7

    I don't think this is the solution - all settings here are at two hours or more but it may be because I have set it so that the computer goes into hibernation when the lid is closed down. Could be a faulty contact here or something.  I'll take that out and see what happens.  Thanks for trying.

    my laptop shuts down and goes into hibernation

  • BuckR Dec 14, 2008

    Compaq Armada m700, shutdown after a few minutes on battery power, never see a battery low message or alarm, does not matter how much life is left in the battery. It may last five minutes. Have changed every power setting imaginable, and nothing ever changes. Sent it to a computer guy who's fixed all my other troubles thru the years and he said "I Dunno". Been a great computer otherwise, just tired of being tethered to a cord.

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.

3.The system can be left to hibernate by selecting the turnoff option,then point the mouse to the stand by option and by pressing down the shift key,select it,then you can see the option as hibernate and select it.Then you can see instead of shutting down windows,it gives the message as hibernating.Then it is ready,then you can return to the work by again pressing the main power switch of the CPU.Try it and look how amazing it is.

Hello, i have a Packard bell igo , that when i try to boot 3 lights on the bottom of the screen and the cd keeps trying to run and also the screen is flicking , what should be the problem ?


Packard bell igo, is a notebook..what model is it. if the screen starts flickering on the go, then you could be having a flex problem or motherboard problem. but if it loads and later flickers, then you should check the installation. please explain a little bit more if this doesn't help.

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.

F1 is probably the key to enter the Bios setup utility. Press and hold the F1 key immediately after you start the machine. Go to the boot priority section, and set your CD-Rom as first boot device. Press f10 to save the settings and reboot with your recovery disk installed

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.
