Sleep and hibernation frequently asked questions
On most computers, you can resume working by pressing your computer's power button. However, not all computers are the same. You might be able to wake your computer by pressing any key on the keyboard, clicking a mouse button, or opening the lid on a laptop. Check the documentation that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.


How can I prevent my computer from automatically sleeping or hibernating?

You can adjust how long your computer waits before sleeping or hibernating-or prevent it from turning itself off altogether. But be careful. On a battery powered laptop, inhibiting sleep or hibernation can result in data loss if the battery dies. Here's how to prevent your computer from entering a power-saving state:
  1. Open Power Options by clicking the Start button .jpg" alt="Picture of the Start button">, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then clicking Power Options.
  2. On the Select a power plan page, click Change plan settings next to the selected plan.
  3. On the Change settings for the plan page, click Change advanced power settings.
  4. On the Advanced settings tab, double-click Sleep, double-click Sleep after, and then do one of the following:
    • If you're using a laptop, click On battery or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click Never.
    • If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.
  5. Double-click Hibernate after, and then do one of the following:
    • If you're using a laptop, click On battery or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click Never.
    • If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.
  6. If you also want the display to stay turned on, double-click Display, double-click Turn off display after, and then do one of the following:
    • If you're using a laptop, click On battery or Plugged in (or both), click the arrow, and then click Never.
    • If you're using a desktop computer, click Setting, click the arrow, and then click Never.
  7. Click OK, and then click Save changes.

I Hope that helps very old problem but still happens even with windows 8.1. Good Luck.

I accidently shut my computer down with hibernation before leaving. When I come home, the computer will not turn on, no lights no noise, nothing. How do I unlock the hibernation? Or could it be something...


You need to hit the power button just the once to bring it back out of hibernation mode. It may take around 30 seconds until you hear your computer starting to boot back up and a little longer for the screen to come on.
Failing this, you can try a hard reboot by holding down the power button until you hear your computer re-boot. Usually you need to hold around 10 seconds. However using this last method as a final resort will result in your computer telling you that it did not shut down properly.

When turning on the computer sony vaio pcv-rx753


IF YOU DO NOT USE THE HIBERNATION OPTION THEN YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND DISABLE IT
NOTE: HIBERNATION OPTION CONSUMES A LOT OF SPACE ON YOUR COMPUTER.IT MIGHT HAPEEN THE COMPUTER DOES NOT HAVE FREE SPACE SO THAT IS WHY IT IS GOING TO HIBERNATION.
PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK AND THEN CHECK WHAT IS YOUR EXACT PROBLEM:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929658


MY EXPERIENCE:If you happen to use a computer with more than 1GB of RAM coupled with Windows XP SP2, then you will have trouble putting your computer to hibernation. You may get this message, “Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API”. When you experience this problem, the hibernate feature is not available on the computer until you restart the computer. I was facing this problem because my computer has got 2GB of RAM and putting it to hibernation was causing me trouble. Well you need not worry about it any more as Microsoft has issued a patch for this problem

Video not waking from sleep mode, can I slap a card in this machine?


Sleep mode is problematic in Windows XP and always has been. It works well on some computers and not on others. Before looking at the Video card as the culprit I would suggest you simply turn it off which will more than likely solve your problem. You do not need to use the Sleep Mode. Turn your monitor off to save energy. To turn Sleep Mode off;
  1. Begin by first clicking on the Start Button.
  2. Then click on the Control Panel icon located in the right column of the Start Menu.
  3. Now click on the Power Options icon to display the Power Options Properties Window.
  4. If your Start Menu is set to the Classic View, then begin by clicking on the Start Button.
  5. Then click on Settings, then click on the Control Panel icon to open up the Control Panel.
  6. Now, click on the Hibernate tab located at the top of the power options screen.
  7. Then uncheck the Enable hibernation option with your mouse if it happens to be enabled.
  8. Now click on the OK button to save your changes and exit the Power Options windows.
  9. And then close the Control Panel to return back to your Window session.
  10. Your computer will no longer enter into a hibernation sleep state when you are away from it.

When computer goes into standby


Unfortunately this happens a lot with standby. My recommendation is to turn standby off or change the options so it doesn't turn the hard drives off. If you want to change the settings or turn hibernate off go into the control panel from the start menu. In there open the power options. In there you can set all the standby options. Try to set the hibernate option to never first. Then if that does not work try changing the hard drive option to never like i described earlier.

My acer computer will turn on but wont come out of hibination mode


Some laptops have issues with Windows XPs hibernation mode. To get the computer back up again you should just hold the power button down until it shuts off completely. Some laptops won’t shut off even if you do this. When this happens you have to take the battery out to get it to turn off. Make sure it is not plugged into the wall when you do this otherwise it wont work.

Once you get the computer back running again you may want to disable hibernation if it seems like its going to keep happening. Go to Start, Settings Control Panel or Start, Control Panel and go to the Power Options icon. Change the hibernation section to never. You may want to try standby as an alternative. Standby saves all your running applications and documents into RAM while hibernate saves them to the hard drive. Hibernate uses less power from your battery, but it will take you considerably longer to get the computer back up. If you always plug the computer in then you may want to disable standby and hibernate since you really dint need them while plugged in.

Let me know if this works.

How do i get my siemens v2010 laptop out of hibernation.the screen has suddenly gone dark.the computer turns on and is fine, but you can only just see whats on the screen


You might have to restart the computer if it is stuck in hibernation. The best thing is to go to your settings and turn the Hibernation setting and sleep settings off. Go into your display settings to find this. Also when your computer starts look for the BIOS option to show on the screen to check the BIOS and make sure it is turned off there. To get to the BIOS hit the DEL key or one of the F keys to get into the BIOS. Do not password the BIOS of your Laptop. This can cause a lot of problems if you forget this password. It can not be recovered easy.
