Hi sbrinke594,

Power down your laptop by pressing down the power button for about 5-10 seconds. Wait about 20 seconds before powering it on. Once you power it on, right click on an empty space on the desktop and choose properties, next click on "Screen Saver" tab, click on "Power" button, then click on t he "Hibernate" tab and uncheck the box for "Enable Hibernation".

This should help and good luck.

My laptop keeps saying hibernating and i cannot get to menu screen.


Definition: Hibernate is another option for powering down your laptop. When you use Hibernate all data will be saved to the hard drive in a compressed form. Once you start up from Hibernate mode you will be able to work with the applications and documents you left open before putting the laptop into Hibernate.
Hibernate is best used to conserve laptop battery power when you will be away from the laptop for more than a few minutes. You can put your laptop into Hibernate overnight or when you will be away from it for a few hours. Examples: Rather than shutting down my laptop each night, I use Hibernate to help conserve battery power and enable me to access my open files quicker in the morning.

If you are not going to use your computer for a few hours, it is a good idea to put it to sleep (also known as mode) to save power. If you are not going to use the computer for more than a day, it is usually best to turn it off.


hope it helps.... please rate if you like my post...thanks

Hibernation is a power management feature. When you hibernate a laptop, you're essentially turning it off. So, unlike Stand By (Sleep) mode, a hibernated laptop isn't using any battery power at all - that laptop is off!

The secret behind hibernation is that before you turn off the laptop, everything you're doing with the computer is saved. (The contents of memory are saved to the hard disk.) When the computer is turned on again, it recovers from hibernating by reloading all the saved information and restoring your laptop to exactly the same condition it was in before it was hibernated.

Briefly, hibernation works like this:

1. You activate the hibernation feature.

Hibernation is activated differently depending on how it's set up.

2. The laptop hums as everything in memory is saved to disk.

3. The laptop turns itself off.

It's really and truly off: The battery isn't being used, and it's safe to store the laptop or put it away until you need to use it again.

To recover from Hibernation mode, just turn the laptop on. In some cases, the laptop may recover from hibernation when you press a key or touch the mouse pad. hibernated state for as long as you want.


Hibernation mode requires hard drive space. So you should be aware that when hard drive space runs low, it's possible that Hibernation mode won't work.



In Windows XP, you have to activate Hibernation mode before you can use it. Follow these steps to activate Hibernation:

1. Click the Start button.

2. From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.

3. Open the Power Options icon in the Control Panel.

4. In the Power Options Properties dialog box, look for and click on the Hibernation tab.

If you don't see a Hibernation tab, there's your answer: The laptop isn't capable of hibernating. Oh, well.

You might want to check the laptop's Setup program to see whether you can activate Hibernation there.

5. Select the Enable Hibernation option by clicking the check box to place a check mark in the box.

6. Review other options, if they're available.

7. Click OK to confirm the changes and close the Power Options Properties dialog box.

Optionally, close the Control Panel window, as well.

Some laptops may require you to restart Windows for this change to take effect.

On hibernation, the state of the computer is saved to the disk, to turn it on again press the power button, the computer will read the hibernation image from the disc and restore its state.

You can press stand by, from that mode the computer should come back with the press of a button, the computer might also go into stand by if the cover is closed and come out of it when opened.

let me know if you have further questions.

Can't get my laptop out of hibernate/standby mode. Need help


Try removing the battery and all pwer from the computer.  This will kill the hibernation process.  Put the battery back in, with outlet power if you desire.  Then try to start the laptop in safe mode.  (Everything will be very big)  Go to the start menu, accessories, system tools, and stystem restore.  Go through the process of restoring the computer any time before you tried installing the update! Then it will automatically restart in normal mode and you should have your old internet explorer back and it SHOULD start up normally!  Hope this helps! :)

Computer does not stay in hibernation or standby mode


That happen because on the stand by or hibernate setting the time was setting in 5 minutes.
Go to Control Panel >> Display >> Screen Saver >> Power

And set the time right there as your preferences.

Desk top won't display-hibernation mode


Hi,

Based on your post of failure to boot due to hibernation, you can try removing the battery and AC adapter connection for an hour or so. Thereafter, insert battery back and charge but don't power up. Allow the laptop to charge for a couple of hours. Try powering up/booting. Press F8 to start in Safe Mode. Once in Safe Mode disable Hibernation.

If the laptop still fails to power up, then it may be entirely another problem.

Post back results. Good luck and kind regards.
