Hi there, I would like to answer some of your question.
First is with regards on hibernation. Are you referring to folding of the laptop display by saying "I close the screen"? If yes, the explanation is that your PC is assuming that you are no longer using him (the PC) that's why he decided to shut himself down including the display. This is in order for him to conserve his battery charge. Hibernation is a feature of the OS where the contents of RAM are written to non-volatile storage such as a hard disk, as a file or on a separate partition, before powering off the computer. When the computer is restarted it reloads the content of memory and is restored to the state it was in when hibernation was invoked.
The situation you are describing on your BUT statement is refer to as Sleep of Standby Mode. In this mode the PC just shut the non critical components like the display. Unlike in Hibernation, PC retains the current data in RAM while shutting down its peripherals.
Both Hibernate and Sleep Mode are features of PC to save energy. On all the components of the PC display consumes the highest percentage of energy. This explains why there had been many technologies that attempted to improve display energy consumption. I'm describing the CRT to Plasma to LCD to LED evolution.
I hope was able to answer your question.
Thanks, lucgalman

My emachine isn't starting up after hybernation, unless i press the power button and reboot. Why is this?


Hi there,
When your system goes to hybernation it creates a file on the root drive called hyberfil.sys in most instances this file gets corrupted and is causing the computer not to wake up from hybernation.
You would have to try and delete this file so that it will re enable the normal hybernation wake of your computer, here's how to do it:

Just have to reverse the process to re-enable hybernation.
My recommendation would be to just disable Hybernation and just let the computer go to sleep if you're going to leave it idle.
Hope this helps!

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.

Screen goes black after 30 mins of working.


There are a few things you need to check here.
1. It could be that your computer power management is set to turn your monitor and harddrive off after 30 to 45 min.

If the computer is however working for 30 to 45 min while you doing stuff and it shuts off, the there is an internal problem "Hardware"

I would suggest you check to see if the power management is set to turn off monitor 30 min and harddrive after 45 min. IF that is not so, then we go on to the next test.

It could possibly be your processor fan is not working so once your processor gets over heated it shuts off the computer.

Turn off the computer, remove the case "this is only if you know what you are doing" with the case off, power on the computer and see if the processor fan is working.

You can get back to me and I can walk you through it.

Hope thiss help.
