What do you mean shutting down the hibernating mode? Stop it happening when the battery goes low, or shutting down into hibernate mode?

How to enable hibernation in Windows XP


Hibernation is a low-power mode that laptops use when they are idle in order to save power. A hibernating computer can come back up to ready a lot quicker than a computer that is completely shut down, but it only uses marginally more power while it is hibernating.

To enable hibernation, open the Power Options applet in the Control Panel. Click on the Hibernate tab (the farthest one on the right) and check the box next to "Enable hibernation." Beneath this box you will see the amount of disk space required to use hibernation. (This amount is typically about the same as the amount of RAM you have installed, because when the computer hibernates, everything in RAM is written to the hard drive.) If you do not have enough free hard drive space, you won't be able to use hibernation; delete some old programs or files that you no longer need in order to free up some more room.

Once you have enabled hibernation and clicked Apply, you can tell Windows when to use hibernation. Go to the Advanced tab (still in Power Options). Under the "Power buttons" heading, there are settings for different actions, such as closing your laptop's lid or pressing the power button. If you want your computer to hibernate when any of these actions are performed, just choose Hibernate from the drop down list. You can also make your computer hibernate manually by choosing Hibernate from the shut down options (Start menu > Shut Down).

Your changes will take effect as soon as you click Apply or OK.

Toshiba Laptop L650-12Q will not shut down


Windows needs to be shut down properly to keep it stable, if hibernate mode is being used it eventually corrupt windows causing all kinds of symptoms, I recommend you make a backup recovery disc, and disable the hibernate feature to prevent complete window failure.

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.


Regards.

My Acer One Aspire is stuck in hibernate. After it updated itself and said it was preparing to shut down, it was stuck in the preparing for shut down mode for hours. When I let the battery run down to turn...


This solution may sound stupid, but it is affective. Try to press really long time (about 1-2 minutes) on the power button of the laptop. wait for it to shut down completely. Then turn it on to see what happens.

What may have caused this is an update of any sort.

Toshiba A215-S4767 will not start up correctly.


First off, Windows just didn't like the way the computer shut off, I would just restart normally and see what happens. Next when it boots up and you get into windows, Go to the control panel > Power Options > go to the hibernation tab and make sure hibernation is unchecked. Next go the setting that reads "shutting the lid". You want to open this setting with a drop down list and pick "Do Nothing", this will keep the laptop from entering standby mode just for shutting the lid. Laptops do not like hibernation or standby modes....windows hates it and will give you all kinds of problems if you continue to use it.

Hibernation


This doesn't sound like a hibernation problem, it sounds to be much deep, motherboard deeper, but let's rule out the hibernation. Unplug the laptop, take out the battery, this will completely shut the machine down. Then put every thing back and restart. If it starts, then disable the hibernation mode in the display properties, screen saver tab, under the button that reads power. If it doesn't start, then the problem is with the motherboard or one of it's components. Take it in for a professional diagnostic, they will be able to tell you exactly where the problem is and if it's a replaceable component.
