Go to the "control panel", and check all the power options settings. Make sure that "enable hibernation" is unchecked. This is a good place to start.

Hp550 computer not going to sleep mode properly


No matter which model of HP laptop you own, battery life is a big issue. Hibernation mode is designed to increase the battery life of your HP laptop by switching off the monitor, hard drive and other parts of the unit after they have been idle for a specific period of time. While hibernation mode works well most of the time, in some cases, your HP laptop may not wake from hibernation the way it should.

Docking Station Issues Many hibernation problems are caused not by the HP laptop itself but by the docking station to which it is attached. Some models of docking station interfere with the normal operation of the hibernation on the HP laptop. The easiest way to test this is to remove the laptop from the docking station and allow it to sit until hibernation begins. If hibernation mode works with the laptop undocked but not while docked, you know the problem lies with the docking station instead of the HP laptop. b> Remote Desktop Issues If you need to connect to your HP laptop from elsewhere, it is helpful to reset the power settings to the Always On mode before you leave your home or office. Many models of HP laptops do not wake properly from hibernation when users connect to them remotely using the remote desktop feature of Windows. When users connect with remote desktop, the program sends a signal to the remote computer that should wake it from hibernation and allow it to function normally. However, this process does not always work as intended with HP computers, so it helps to change the power settings to allow a seamless connection. Video Drivers Problems with HP laptop hibernation also can be caused by a corrupt or outdated video drive. HP laptops come with built-in video processors, and the drivers they use are installed during the initial setup of the unit. If there is a problem with that driver, HP releases an update, so if you see problems with hibernation, your first step should be to check for an updated video driver. b> External Keyboard and Mouse Sometimes the HP laptop does not respond properly and does not wake from hibernation when you use the built-in keyboard and touchpad mouse. The sensitivity of HP touchpads varies from model to model, and that sensitivity can be reduced over time. You can test for this problem by attaching an external keyboard and mouse to the laptop to determine whether that resolves the problem.

Open Control Panel, Power, power settings, change power settings to high performance, Disable Hibernation, sleep. When your laptop is not in use shut it down and unplug. It will last longer and a boot everyday will reset the laptop.

Sometimes my computer by itself goes into hibernation mode and the is very difficult to bring it back


You can go into the power setting in control panel and set the computer to never go into hibernation. If it on battery, have it shut down instead.

My laptop just says preparing to hibernate how do i clear it


To "hibernate" means to write the contents of the RAM to the disk-drive, and then to turn the computer off.

It should only take 15 to 30 seconds to do so.

If it is not completing, it is safe to hold the ON/OFF button down,
until the computer turns itself off.

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.

How to turn on toshiba satellite M300 laptop from hibernating mode


hi shirleygty, is that automatic hibernation (the computer hibernates by itself) or manual hibernation (by pressing the hibernate button)? If either applies to your case you might need to update the BIOS information for your computer to fix the power management issues on it. You can get it here. Just run the file, click install & choose Install From Windows. Make sure you don't have any BIOS password or any external devices connected to the computer. When the update completed successfully, your computer will automatically restart, then try hibernating this time (manual or automatic). I do recommend setting the hibernation to 1min. at the control panel > power options > change when to turn off the display. When it hibernates, pressing any keys or the power button should wake up the computer.

Hope this helps.
