I'll let you in on a little secret....hibernating is one of the biggest problems computers have and registry errors. If I could you some advice, it would be to go to the control panel > power options > go to the hibernate tab and un-check the enable hibernation box. Save the disk space allocated for it and save your system registry. If you want, just go to advanced power settings and set the computer to sleep after a certain amount of time, then just touch the touch-pad and the computer will come right back up.

This is a common hibernation issue ... here is the fix:
Once you are able to get it to start up again (there is no sure fire way to do this, it just happens!).
The virtual memoryMy laptop is hibernating. How do I get it back up - 2.gif size is set too low! It must be set to an amount larger than your amount of physical memory. (If you have 2GB or memory, then Virtual memory must be more than 2048MB.

Right-click [My computer]
In the [General] tab, note the amount of RAM
Select the [Advanced] tab
Select the [Settings] button in the "Performance" section.
Click on the [Advanced] tab
Click on the [change] button in the "Virtual Memory" section
almost there!
Highlight the boot drive (C:)
Don't change the locartion of the VM file.
Select "Custom size" radial button.
Enter a number that ois larger than your physical memory from the General tab
1GB = 1024MB (plus 512MM or so) = 1536MB
2GB=2048MB (plus 512MB or so) = 2560MB
3GB=3072MB (plus 512MB or so) = 3584MB

Laptop hibernates automaticaly

My laptop doesnt Hibernate.

Most of the times a laptop would fail to hibernate due to an OS Driver Management Issue.

Even after doing Lot of Homework on setting up the Hibernation settings, if your laptop is not hibernating, Check for the Posibility of having a new device attached to one of the ports or a new application installed.

Usually when a hibernation process starts the Kernal would enforce the App Manager and the HAL to communicate with the backend process and the Driver programs to close down the operation and write back the system state logs to the hiberfil.sys.

The Applications and Driver programs running on a windows system should abide to the WDDM Framework. (Windows Device Driver Model). A device driver which is running on a windows system if not written to follow the WDDM Framework shall refrain from closing the ports and getting to the hibernation status due to which the kernal will not be able to close the programs and return to hibernation mode and this keeps the system running live.

So check for any such new applications running on your Windows system and also check for any Wireless device like (Mouse or Keyboard) which is not Windows Compatable and running on the system.

Hope this solves the issue. (Good Luck).

My laptop doesnot come back from hybernation. I have xp on my Toshiba laptop.

Common problem with a lot of laptops.
I recommend you shut it down as opposed to let it hibernate or just turn off hibernation

Start... Control panel.... Power options... Hibernate ... uncheck the box "Enable Hibernate"

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.

go into msconfig and then click on the startup tab. Click on the button that says disable all and then apply the changes. Let the laptop reboot and when it gets back into windows try to go into hibernation mode again and see if it still reboots on you. If it does then its an operating system issue. If it doesn't reboot on you, then go back into msconfig and only enable the programs that you feel you need to run when windows boots up.

Laptops have a ACPI power management piece of hardware on the motherboard. Sounds like this driver is corrupt or missing. Go to Acers website and look for drivers and find the one that says ACPI or even chipset drivers may have it.

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.

Won;t Hibernate

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.
