As soon as you turn on laptop it says hibernating and it never does anything else. how do i get this to stop. cant do anything.


If the charge in the battery is "low", and the computer is *NOT* running on AC power, then the computer _will_ hibernate, until you recharge the battery, or connect the AC adapter.

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.

Hiberation mode ,,what do i do/


Hello,

Hibernate mode is a power saving feature for computers. In hibernate mode, the current state of a computer is saved to the hard disk, and the computer shuts down. A user will have to power on the computer to restore the previous settings. When a computer resumes from hibernate mode, it reads the saved settings from the disk and restores the system state as it was before it entered hibernate mode. By default, hibernate mode is disabled. If a computer is not ACPI-enabled or APM-enabled, users will have to enter hibernate mode manually. Users cannot set the computer to automatically hibernate after a certain time. With ACPI-enabled and APM-enabled computers, users are able to set hibernate mode automatically

How to enable Hibernate:
Please follow this steps below to enable your Hibernate features:

1. Go to Main screen in your windows then right click your mouse to an empty area in your main menu.
2. After clicking the right click please select the properties then go to Screen Saver Tab.
3. Please Click the Button name Power then click the Hibernate Tab.
4. Please check the CheckBox name Enable Hibernation to enabled the hibernation if it is not hibernated.
5. To try test the Hibernate process please follow the steps in How to start using Hibernate below.

How to start Using Hibernate:
Please follow this steps below to active your Hibernate Features:

Make sure all necessary programs are closed prior to shutting down. Hibernating will put all programs to "sleep," but some programs won't start up properly. Experiment after this to figure out which programs perform as intended.
  1. Click Start and Shut Down,
  2. Point the standby button and maintain the shift key pushed,
  3. A new hibernation button appears: click it while still holding the shift key: voila your PC will hibernate.
Thanks

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!

Power management lets you reduce your Notebook power consumption. Your Notebook has two power management modes:
  • Hibernation is an energy-saving feature and safeguard that saves information to the hard drive, then turns off your Notebook. When you resume from Hibernation, your information returns to the screen where you were previously working. Your Notebook hibernates when the Power button is pressed, when the battery has little power left, or when your Notebook (operating on battery power) is in Sleep mode for more than one hour.
  • Sleep, also called Standby, is an energy-saving feature that reduces power to system components that are not being used. When Sleep is initiated, your information is saved in Random Access Memory (RAM), and the screen is cleared. Your Notebook is still on, but the display is blank. When you resume from Suspend, your information returns to the screen where you were previously working.
Automatically put your notebook into hibernation Windows can automatically put your computer into Hibernate mode after a specified period of inactivity. Or Windows can detect when your batteries are running low, and then automatically put your computer in Hibernate mode to save your work before the battery fails. NOTE: Using Power Options in Control Panel, you can adjust any power management option that your notebook's unique hardware configuration supports. Because these options may vary widely from computer to computer, the options described may differ from what you see. Power Options automatically detects what is available on your computer and shows you only the options that you can control. To automatically put your computer into hibernation:
  1. In Category view, click Start , click Control Panel , click Performance and Maintenance , and then click Power Options . In Classic view, click Start , click Control Panel , and then click the Power Options icon.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, select the Enable hibernate support check box, and then click Apply . Figure 1: Enable hibernation check box c00035872.gif
  3. Click the Power Schemes tab, and then select a time period in System hibernates. Your computer hibernates after it has been idle for the specified amount of time.
Manually put your notebook into hibernation This feature is available only on notebooks with the Windows XP operating system installed.
  1. In Category view, click Start , click Control Panel , click Performance and Maintenance , and then click Power Options . In Classic view, click Start , click Control Panel , and then click the Power Options icon.
  2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box. NOTE: If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.
  3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.
  4. Click Start , and then click Turn Off Computer . In the Turn off computer dialog box, hold down the Shift key. The Stand By button will change to Hibernate. Click Hibernate .
