Won;t Hibernate won't hibernate. Brand New, Came with XP pro installed Power control panel allows standby but Hibernate is not available. Then, on a scratch reboot, Hibernate is available for a while. However, when you hibernate (start, shutdown, Hibernate) it will act like it is hibernating and then pop open and restart. After one try, Hibernate is not available again until you completely power off and restart. In the Newest Bios, there is no ACPI button of any kind. in fact, very little is configurable. It appears that something running won't let it shut down but I have not found what it is so far. any ideas to try? thanks dc

    I had turned some stuff off. But, with your advice, I got more aggressive and removed "all" of the Sony Craplets except the HDD shock absorber one.



    Now, it works as expected using the XP controls. This worked well on my last SONY so I think it will work well enough for me in my usage model.



    thank you very much. dc

Sony laptops are infamous for these kinds of problems. You very likely have another Sony program running in the system tray which is trying to control all power functions in a "smart" (in other words, defective) manner, and this is conflicting with and resetting your OS's normal power settings. Try to find this program on your laptop and run it and check what it thinks it is doing. You might also have a problem with the actually writing of the hibernation file on your machine due to any number of problems (low disk space, conflicting file names, corrupted administraive priveledges for whatever program thinks it is doing the writing). I'd suggest uninstalling the SONY power management software and then using the stuff the operating system provides. It might not be good, but it at least works kind of, and consistently.

The changing status of the hibernate settings you describe suggest to me that another program is changing them to try to be "efficient".

Last resort - disable hibernate; it doesn't work very well on Sony laptops even at the best of times.

The sleep and hibernate buttons are grayed out. Running XP SP3 and on a Sony Vaio VGN-T150


install the keyboard drivers, go here:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCVW600G

Go down to the keyboard section and download that piece of software and install it. That should take care of the sleep and hibernate buttons not working.

Power management lets you reduce your Notebook power consumption. Your Notebook has two power management modes:
  • Hibernation is an energy-saving feature and safeguard that saves information to the hard drive, then turns off your Notebook. When you resume from Hibernation, your information returns to the screen where you were previously working. Your Notebook hibernates when the Power button is pressed, when the battery has little power left, or when your Notebook (operating on battery power) is in Sleep mode for more than one hour.
  • Sleep, also called Standby, is an energy-saving feature that reduces power to system components that are not being used. When Sleep is initiated, your information is saved in Random Access Memory (RAM), and the screen is cleared. Your Notebook is still on, but the display is blank. When you resume from Suspend, your information returns to the screen where you were previously working.
Automatically put your notebook into hibernation Windows can automatically put your computer into Hibernate mode after a specified period of inactivity. Or Windows can detect when your batteries are running low, and then automatically put your computer in Hibernate mode to save your work before the battery fails. NOTE: Using Power Options in Control Panel, you can adjust any power management option that your notebook's unique hardware configuration supports. Because these options may vary widely from computer to computer, the options described may differ from what you see. Power Options automatically detects what is available on your computer and shows you only the options that you can control. To automatically put your computer into hibernation:
  1. In Category view, click Start , click Control Panel , click Performance and Maintenance , and then click Power Options . In Classic view, click Start , click Control Panel , and then click the Power Options icon.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, select the Enable hibernate support check box, and then click Apply . Figure 1: Enable hibernation check box c00035872.gif
  3. Click the Power Schemes tab, and then select a time period in System hibernates. Your computer hibernates after it has been idle for the specified amount of time.
Manually put your notebook into hibernation This feature is available only on notebooks with the Windows XP operating system installed.

  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start , and then click Turn Off Computer . In the Turn off computer dialog box, hold down the Shift key. The Stand By button will change to Hibernate. Click Hibernate .

How do i get out of hibernate mode and get into standby


To get the computer back up again and out of hibernation 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.


Also the following may be of interest.
You must be logged on as an administrator or member of either the Administrators or Power Users group in order to successfully complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, the forced network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure. In this case please consult your Network Administrator.
  1. Click Start, then Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box.
    If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start, and then click Shut Down then select Hibernate.
    If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional with Fast User Switching turned on, the Shut Down menu will present the options to Stand By, Turn Off, or Restart your computer. Hold down the Shift key, and the Stand By button will change to Hibernate.

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.
