Re: Auto hibernated, will not power back up
It's possible that the laptop is stuck thinking it should be resuming from standby but cannot find the data in memory. Remove the battery, unplug the power cord, and hold down the power button for at least 10 seconds. Then plug JUST the power cord back in and try to boot the system. If you still get no response then it's possible that one of your RAM sticks is going bad. With the battery and power cord removed try removing both sticks of RAM. Then try to boot the system again with only the power cord in use and no RAM installed. See if you get some sort of response from the BIOS. Hold down the power button to turn the computer off again, remove the power cord, and then try booting the system with just one of the memory sticks installed. If you can isolate one of the sticks as causing the failed boot, then that stick is most likely faulty.

Hibernation mode usually turns the computer off but saves any work. Then you would start it back up by hitting the power button, it will boot up and you log in like normal and the computer should be as it was before it went into hibernation.
If you can't get it out of hibernation by pressing the power button, try holding the power button for 5-10 seconds. The laptop may actually still be on, and holding the power button will cut if off. Once the computer is back on you can change the battery options(hibernation/turn off settings) in Windows by going to the bottom right task bar and right clicking on the battery icon. Normally you will have an option like "power saving settings", "battery settings". In this setting window you can turn off hibernation due to inactivity.
Let me know if you have any questions. Regards, G33k
First thing to try is to remove the battery and disconnect the AC adapter. Press the power button for a full 10 seconds to drain residual power from the capacitors on the board. Give it 5 mins then put the AC adapter and battery back in and give it a try. You might also refine your hibernation settings - I had a 5000 which is similar and finally turned hibernation off. Also check for a pin switch that the lid pushes down when it closes to see if something is holding the switch down when the lid is raised. I dont remember if that model has a mechanical push switch or a magnetic. Magnetic shouldnt do it but mechanicals are very prone to getting stuck.
keep press power button for 1 mins and your laptop will turn off. when you turn on your laptop. disable hibernate mode.
to return to your desktop from hibernate mode press power button quickly. windows will resume
There have been times when Ctrl + Alt + Delete has brought the desktop back up. Usually, hibernation is disrupted by simply pushing the power button once, the computer will eventually come out of hibernation. Most clients I have done work for have me take hibernation off completetly, this is done in the control pnel under power options. There is a tab specific for hibernation.
If it hangs in hibernation the only way to get it out is to hold the power button down until it shuts off, and reboot. If it continues to hang up in hibernation, do a system restore o system repair with the recovery or operating system disc. If the problem persists after the restore or repair, then you will need to disable the hibernation.
