Typically this indicates a problem with a particular piece of hardware or its driver that is not cooperating when windows tries to hibernate. Do you have anything new attached to the system? If so, try unplugging it, rebooting, and see if it cooperates then. Also, have you checked the windows event log to see if windows reports any particular errors when trying to hibernate?

Not waking from sleep


Don't be lazy, use the Shut Down command and then you will know your files have been closed properly and disconnecting the battery or power failure will not kill your data.

Hp550 computer not going to sleep mode properly


No matter which model of HP laptop you own, battery life is a big issue. Hibernation mode is designed to increase the battery life of your HP laptop by switching off the monitor, hard drive and other parts of the unit after they have been idle for a specific period of time. While hibernation mode works well most of the time, in some cases, your HP laptop may not wake from hibernation the way it should.

Docking Station Issues Many hibernation problems are caused not by the HP laptop itself but by the docking station to which it is attached. Some models of docking station interfere with the normal operation of the hibernation on the HP laptop. The easiest way to test this is to remove the laptop from the docking station and allow it to sit until hibernation begins. If hibernation mode works with the laptop undocked but not while docked, you know the problem lies with the docking station instead of the HP laptop. b> Remote Desktop Issues If you need to connect to your HP laptop from elsewhere, it is helpful to reset the power settings to the Always On mode before you leave your home or office. Many models of HP laptops do not wake properly from hibernation when users connect to them remotely using the remote desktop feature of Windows. When users connect with remote desktop, the program sends a signal to the remote computer that should wake it from hibernation and allow it to function normally. However, this process does not always work as intended with HP computers, so it helps to change the power settings to allow a seamless connection. Video Drivers Problems with HP laptop hibernation also can be caused by a corrupt or outdated video drive. HP laptops come with built-in video processors, and the drivers they use are installed during the initial setup of the unit. If there is a problem with that driver, HP releases an update, so if you see problems with hibernation, your first step should be to check for an updated video driver. b> External Keyboard and Mouse Sometimes the HP laptop does not respond properly and does not wake from hibernation when you use the built-in keyboard and touchpad mouse. The sensitivity of HP touchpads varies from model to model, and that sensitivity can be reduced over time. You can test for this problem by attaching an external keyboard and mouse to the laptop to determine whether that resolves the problem.

There is a big difference between hibernate and sleep mode. One will not wake just by opening the lid. You can get a full answer from this web site:

I suggest visiting that site for a full explanation. It just might be the answer for which you are searching.

I have a Thinkpad t60. For the past few days it won't go into hiberation when I close the lid. It just stays on and consumes the battery.


I have seen this issue before with my T60. It seemed to be related to not having restarted my laptop in a while. I used to use hibernate rather than shutting down my laptop for weeks at a time. Actually restarting my laptop seemed to get hibernate to work again.

In addition, you can check to see if for some reason the hibernate option has been disabled.

In Win XP (Win 7 is very similar):
  1. Click Start and select Control Panel.
  2. Double-click Power Options.
  3. On the Hibernate Tab, ensure Enable hibernation is selected (check mark).
  4. On the Advanced Tab, ensure that the setting for When I close the Lid is set to Hibernate (select it from the drop-down list if necessary). There should be an option for when plugged in and when on battery. Set both to your preference.
Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.com

Turn Hibernate off for one thing. Hibernation leads to registry problems and boot issues. Go to control panel > power options > hibernate tab > uncheck the box. Reboot the machine. If you want, the laptop will go into standby mode after a period of time and will wake up with a touch on the touchpad. Go back to power options and there are settings in there that you can tailor to your liking.

HP Pavillion dv6000 Vista notebook crashes when entering sleep mode


This is a common problem with HP Pavilion laptops, including mine. Check and make sure there are no non-OS programs running that are trying to control power settings (like a power monitor program running in the system/task tray) and then turning of hibernation in the POWER SETTINGS and then for all "WHEN I CLOSE LID" and "WHEN I PUSH THE SLEEP BUTTON" and "WHEN I PUSH THE POWER BUTTON" select DO NOTHING, then APPLY. Then SAVE SCHEME AS and choose any new name. This will disable all sleep modes forever, but at least you can get on with normal use.

If you are geeky, try going into the BIOS and DISABLING anything marked WAKE ON, and disabling anything having to do with automatic power features, and then try hibernating and so forth normally through the OS again. Sometimes this works if there are conflicting settings in the BIOS also trying to increase power efficiency.

Good luck...
