Vista will not shut down, hibernate or sleep

If anyone could help, I would appreciate it. Recently my computer has started having problems with shutting down. I have uninstalled recent programs, reinstalled my power management functions (per HP) and did a system restore.

Nothing seems to work and i can't really pinpoint when this problem started happening.

Anyone out there who can help, I would love to know other things I can try. HP was of no help at all and I am unable to determine if this is a hardware or software issue.

    I have Vista x86 with 2 GB of memory on an EVGA 790i mobo with a EVGA Gx2 graphics.
    I have uninstalled every driver, disabled audio, and all AV programs. It will not shut down, hibernate, sleep or reboot.
    It just goes to a dark screen and waits for me to push a button.
    A royal pain in the ****.

Had similar problem. 32-bit Vista would immediately resume after entering sleep/hibernate. Isolated culprit by selectively disabling services using msconfig. It was the DHCP client. Seems there is a conflict for the 790i motherboard due to multiple ethernet ports. Resolved problem by moving network connection from MAC1 to MAC0 (ie, moved the ethernet connector to the other connector on the back of the computer). Works fine now. Hope this helps.

I had this problem. I called HP. They walked me through a reload of vista. problem seems to have been corrected. this took about 90 minutes. this included troubleshooting and reload.

It had to be sent in for service. Best Buy said it was a hardware issue after their diagnostics came up with nothing.

Basically it would act like it was shutting down, hibernating or whatever and about 15-20 seconds later, it would re-boot or resume windows.

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.

1. Open Power Options in Control Panel. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.)

I have winows vista and it takes a few minutes for my pc to shut down and startup how can i get it to shut down and start up faster


Forget it, it takes what it takes. There is an idea of an external drive, that can be rigged that helps, but It is a waste of resoruces.
Consider using sleep mode, for faster cycling and only shutdown when you actually need to. If this is a laptop, consider hibernate. Both sleep and hibernate focus on faster start ups, but on laptop, if you use sleep and run out of battery, you can loose data that you were working on. ALWAY save and backup.

Pressed hibernation key and now the computer won't work


Unplug the computer for a minute and plug it back in. It should restart normally.

Usually you restart just by tapping a key in sleep or hitting the power in hibernate.

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....


If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.

Or choose stanby options and choose a longer time before the computer goes to sleep.

Dell crashes and restarts upon sleep_suspend_hibernate


I'm not a big fan of using hibernate or standby, I've seen it cause too many problems, such as the one you're having. I shut my machine down when I'm done, or let it run if I'm coming back within a reasonable amount of time. I've also seen hibernation or standby create operating system errors or glitches, and premature hard drive failure. If the machine is working properly other than hibernation/standby you should shut the hibernation off and just shut the machine down when not in use. If you're getting this error when using the power button to turn off the computer, then the operating system has glitched or is corrupt and needs to be reistalled. If you need anymore help with this let me know.
