Hi ckboo,

You can disable the hibernating under display properties.

Right click on an empty area on your desktop, go into power management, choose Hibernate tap and uncheck option for hibernation.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Check for power options you might have some hibernation settings or some wallpaper wakeup program. If you properly shut down your computer, it won't turn ON itself unless you provide it power.

Catostrophic failure while watching mp4 video. short buzz noise then black screen, no video now, won't boot. just fan noise. stuck in hibernate?


That buzz noise is concerning... was it out of your speakers or did it sound like something else?
I would unplug everything from the lapotp, including the battery, let it sit for a few minutes then try to boot it up again (after plugging in the battery). If still no luck, unfortunately you will need to take it somewhere to get it looked at (or call Gateway if it's under warranty).

After shutdown of gateway laptop blue power button stays lit.....


Hi this sounds like your computer is in hibernation mode as opposed to shut down mode. Could you check and see as if running Vista many people assume that clicking on the brown power type selection under start that they are shutting down where as this actually only hibernation mode and clicking on the little arrow to the right of this and selecting shutdown is the way to go.
I hope this helps

My laptop does not fully hibernate!


Unfortunately , hibernation issues are tough to pin down.

See this link

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907477


Basically says , meh could be anything.

One thing you can do to narrow it down is to go to Start > My Computer > RIGHT click on My Computer > click Manage > expand Event Viewer > Click on Applications and see if you have any Red ! around the time it was supposed to be hibernating.

If you see a message like "application hang" you can try uninstalling and reinstalling that particular app.

An easier way is to use a program called smart shutdown.

http://lifehacker.com/5046541/smart-shutdown-offers-more-ways-to-turn-off-your-pc

This program will kill any unresponsive programs and keep trying to hibernate until successful.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

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.
