I put my HP Pavilion into hibernation and now I can't get it to start up again! When I press the power button, the little lightening bolt flashes but that's about it. Any suggestions to get this thing turned on???

Try to press and hold the power button for about 5 to 10 secs. if this does not work, remove the battery and adapter, press and hold the power button for about 10 seconds, reconnect the battery and adapter and attempt to turn on the laptop. let me know how it goes.

Can HP dv2715nr hibernate instead of putting it on sleep mode?


Hi,

It sounds like the hibernate feature is missing from the power options list. Click on start button, select shut down, and then hold shif or ctrl and stand by should change to hibernate.


Let me know how you get on.

Hi I have a HP pavilion a708uk pc when i power up the cpu fan run full speed the the screen says "hibernating" then shuts down! any ideas?


Hi,

You can try the following steps to resolve this issue:
Turn off the computer
Remove the power cable
Press the power button and hold it for atleast 8 seconds
Reconnect the power cable
Try to restart the computer and see if you are able to get on to the Desktop.
If the above steps does not work and you again get the "hibernate" screen, immediately press the "Esc"(escape) key on your keyboard. It should let you go to Desktop.

Once you are able to boot normally do the following:
Right click on Desktop
Click properties
Go to Screensaver Tab
Click on Power button
On the Power Options Properties Window, click on "hibernate" Tab
Uncheck "unable hibernate"
Press OK

Hope you find the above information helpful.

Hp pavillion will not turn on, took battery out and put back in still not working. blue light around power cord on and blue lightening bolt flashes


Hi Iceprincess5

The three flashing lights indicate the battery is dead. Since it still wont power up with the cable plugged in I'd say the port has gone. Try wiggling the adapter about in the port to see if it begins to charge. If not then you would need to take it to a laptop repair centre to get a new dc port soldered on or buy a docking station.

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.
  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, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box. NOTE: 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 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 .
