Check the sleep settings by viewing the battery icon with the right mouse click and select power settings.

My dell laptop says while on hybernating


I don't understand your question. Please re-word in English so it is understandable!

If you mean "My Dell laptop stays on while hibernating" then I would make sure that you are actually hibernating and NOT hitting the "sleep" button.

If you hit sleep or close your laptop then any small movements could possibly wake it up (though you would need to hit the start button to turn it on from sleeping usually)

If you hibernate then your computer saves its current state and shuts off so that way it can resume its current state next time your start up.
Are you positive you are putting it into hibernate and giving it time to shut-down without moving it? (Closing it before it is ready will tamper with the process at times)

Neither Sleep nor Hibernate are available as options when I go to the Start menu on my Lenovo T410. They appear grayed out in the list that contains 'Switch User', 'Lock' and 'Restart'. Pressing Fn-F4...


Go to:
Control Panel\System and Security\Power Options\Edit Plan Settings

Choose Change advanced power settings link.
Here you can enable Sleep/Hibernate etc.

My Vaio doesn't go to sleep/hibernate when closing the lid


Maybe the little sensor or pin that sticks up and is pushed in when you close the lid is broken and the software doesn't realize the lid has been closed.

How do i set my desktop i want to go to the internet with out so long


lilonerice,
If you want your laptop to turn on faster, I would consider the "Sleep" and "Hibernate" options instead of turning your machine off.
Sleeping uses up a tiny amount of power over time. So if your battery runs out while the machine is asleep, it'll turn off and anything you have open will be lost. But it does turn on the fastest.
Hibernate turns the machine completely off, and saves the information about what programs are open. Unlike sleep, it doesn't use any power, but it does take longer than sleep to go into, or come out of. It is still significantly faster than shutting down your machine.

Screen goes blank every 30 second, have to hit the


go to control panel > power options. Turn off hibernate and sleep mode, change all settings to never sleep and change the setting for "when closing the lid" to "do nothing" sleep mode, hibernation can destroy the registry on these laptops, you are better off turning that garbage off and just letting it run.

When my computer goes into sleep mode it freezes after 5 seconds


There are a lot of systems out there having trouble with the sleep and hibernation programs in windows. The first thing I would do if I wanted to keep the sleep and hibernation programs in place would be to update the BIOS file on the system. I for one am a believe the computer in turning off the sleep and hibernation. They have caused more corrupt windows installations than I care to remember or work on again. If you want to try turning these off for a while and see how the computer reacts, go to the control panel > power option > scroll through the settings and change the way the computer sleeps and hibernates. Also change the setting for what happens when the lid is closed. Change it to "Do Nothing" this will correct a case of the computer not waking up from somply closing the lid. The lcd will automatically turn off when you close the lid and turn back on when you open it...you don't need the computer going to sleep simply because you close the lid for second.

I am unable to unhibernate


Power down the computer and power back up. Lets just shut hibernation off...you can always just have the computer sleep...it is much better on the system anyway.

Shutting Down Hibernation

Go to the control panel > Power Options > Hibernation tab > uncheck hibernate…this way you save a lot of disc space and don’t have to go through all the intermittent hibernation problems that occur. After you uncheck hibernation, you can go to the other power options and change how the computer reacts to the lid being closed, when it sleeps and for how long before sleep kicks in. Make sure to change the setting for what happens when lid closes to “do nothing” this will keep the laptop alive even though you close the lid to move it, etc.

Put my toshiba laptop into sleep mode closed the lid, reopened it within seconds, and now the laptop will not come back on


Reboot the laptop, go to control panel > power options > go through the settings, especially what does the computer do when lid is closed and change the setting to "do nothing", turn off hibernation if it is on. Change other settings to now allow the computer to go to sleep, just let it run until you decide to turn it all the way off. Sleep mode and Hibernation cause more problems than do good.

Where is the Sleep Button to put D-I'n-1000 into hibernation


There is no SLEEP BUTTON per se on and Inspiron 1000 system.

Enabling Hibernate is easy enough though. Go to Control Panel, POWER OPTIONS. In the power options window, click the hibernate tab and ensure the ENABLE HIBERNATION checkbox is checked., then click the ADVANCED TAB. Look for the "When I close the lid of my computer option and select HIBERNATE.

Since that system doesn't have a SLEEP BUTTON, that option may be listed, but is of no use.

Hee is a link to the I1000 manual
