Thanks, it shows that PMT is, (or trying to), switch from Power Saver to High Performance.
You didn't include the High Performance Advanced settings screengrab, could you please?
I'm running Win7 64x with "Balanced" power scheme.
The powercfg output shows you're running in the Power Saver scheme which is a bit more frugal than the Balanced scheme.
It also seems to indicate that there might
be some form of power software installed by Dell, (only because I see a Dell power scheme there - AMD do the same thing if you run their Fusion software IIRC).
Thanks for your help!
No problem, it's just got me beat how it can be messing up your hibernation when all it does is swap power schemes, it doesn't change anything in those schemes. It shouldn't even be going into Sleep/Hibernation when in High Performance, as you can see from my grab above, they're both set to Never by default.
You can also reset the power schemes to their default values by pressing the Restore Plan Defaults
button under each schemes Advanced settings.
I've attached a small video of what happens when it runs - you can watch it change the power scheme each time it's run, (.7z because you can't attach .mp4 for some reason).
It's the equivalent of you typing in the following commands in a CLI, just as a matter of interest can you effect the same change from the CLI and does it do the same thing Hibernate-wise ?
powercfg /setactive 8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c (should set to High Performance)
powercfg /setactive a1841308-3541-4fab-bc81-f71556f20b4a (should set back to Power Saver)
Anyone else care to try it with a Win7 laptop and see what happens?
