Re: Random Hibernation

This sounds like power settings options.

what i can suggest now is that......................

go to the Power Options in the Control Panel and do the following.

  • first uncheck the hibernate option on the hibernate tab
  • use your computer and see if the problem re-appears, go to the control panel and on the power option, select Never to all options when using battery or ac power.

My laptop is shutting off on its own

Might be normal. Most laptops have a "hibernate" mode to save on the battery. They go into hibernation when they are left alone for a while. You have to press the power button to wake them just like when you turn on. If you don't want it to hybernate, go into PC settings and turn it off.

Shut off hibernate mode

Hybernate mode is typically shut off through your laptop's power options accessed through the control panel. It will outline what actions to take and when including hibernation and sleep. Aside from power options some operating systems have power options when you rightclick your desktop and go to preferences/display

Gone into hibernation - can I retrieve

When your laptop goes into hybernation, all files are saved as they were. As soon as you re-start your computer, it will open all files and programs as they were before hybernation started, so YES, you can retrieve everything as it was before.
be sure the computer ios plugged into a charger, to be sure the batteries are charged.

Please, let me know how it goes.

My HP's screen goes black

When your computer reboots, go to the control panel > power options > go to the hibernate tab and turn off hibernation. Then go to the power settings and make sure to change the setting for closing the lid to "do nothing" then change the other settings such as when the computer sleeps if inactive to 30 minutes to an hour. Hibernation is causing the most problems I see with random shutdown etc. One other thing it might be also is overheating of the processor, make sure to get some compressed air and blow out the heatsink vents and grills on the base of the laptop. If these are insuccessful, there maybe the possibility that you have a Malware bug. Go here

download and run this and perfrom a quick scan, when it is finished, show results and delete anything it finds.

Hibernation is a power management feature. When you hibernate a laptop, you're essentially turning it off. So, unlike Stand By (Sleep) mode, a hibernated laptop isn't using any battery power at all - that laptop is off!

The secret behind hibernation is that before you turn off the laptop, everything you're doing with the computer is saved. (The contents of memory are saved to the hard disk.) When the computer is turned on again, it recovers from hibernating by reloading all the saved information and restoring your laptop to exactly the same condition it was in before it was hibernated.

Briefly, hibernation works like this:

1. You activate the hibernation feature.

Hibernation is activated differently depending on how it's set up.

2. The laptop hums as everything in memory is saved to disk.

3. The laptop turns itself off.

It's really and truly off: The battery isn't being used, and it's safe to store the laptop or put it away until you need to use it again.

To recover from Hibernation mode, just turn the laptop on. In some cases, the laptop may recover from hibernation when you press a key or touch the mouse pad. hibernated state for as long as you want.

Hibernation mode requires hard drive space. So you should be aware that when hard drive space runs low, it's possible that Hibernation mode won't work.

In Windows XP, you have to activate Hibernation mode before you can use it. Follow these steps to activate Hibernation:

1. Click the Start button.

2. From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.

3. Open the Power Options icon in the Control Panel.

4. In the Power Options Properties dialog box, look for and click on the Hibernation tab.

If you don't see a Hibernation tab, there's your answer: The laptop isn't capable of hibernating. Oh, well.

You might want to check the laptop's Setup program to see whether you can activate Hibernation there.

5. Select the Enable Hibernation option by clicking the check box to place a check mark in the box.

6. Review other options, if they're available.

7. Click OK to confirm the changes and close the Power Options Properties dialog box.

Optionally, close the Control Panel window, as well.

Some laptops may require you to restart Windows for this change to take effect.

Screen dull & automatically goes into hybernate

The dim screen is going to be either the lcd or inverter. As far as constantly going into hibernation mode. go into power options and make sure where it says turn off monitor and turn off hard drive are set to never. If that doesn't work then that mean you might have a virus, trojan, etc on the computer.

Random black screen

If your laptop is still under warranty I would highly consider having your manufacturor replace either the motherboard or monitor.

That's saying that it is indeed a random thing. Although you could also try disabling hibernation or system standby. Also try turning off power management in the bios if possible.
